Charismatic movement, or Charismatic renewal, refers to spirit-filled services and masses (e.g., integration of Third-force Christianity) within traditional Christian denominations. It is a relatively recent phenomenon. It can be found in Roman Catholic, Episcopalian, Lutheran, and Presbyterian churches among others.

1967 Surpise

In 1967 the beginning of Catholic Pentecostalism surprised many inside and outside the Church. Its origin was amongst thousands of Catholic lay leaders. This movement's beginning is marked by Catholics publically speaking in tongues. [1]
