Father Peter Hocken ist begeistert über die ökumenischen Initiativen, die Papst Franziskus regelmäßig setzt. Das 50-Jahr-Jubiläum der Katholisch-Charismatischen Bewegung will er zu Pfingsten 2017 gemeinsam mit Gläubigen der anderen Konfessionen feiern.
Es war bereits eine Begegnung von besonderer Bedeutung gewesen, als Father Peter Hocken und der messianische Rabbi Marty Waldman im Februar 2013 Kardinal Bergoglio in Argentinien besuchten und für ihn beteten kurz vor dessen Abreise zum Konklave in Rom...

Language: English
Father Peter Hocken berichtet über die Ursprünge der Charismatischen Erneuerung und ihre Wurzeln in der Pfingstbewegung der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Bedeutung des Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzils mit ihrer ökumenischen Öffnung der Katholischen Kirche für den Beginn dieser geistlichen Bewegung.
Peter Hocken wurde als frisch geweihter katholischer Priester bereits Anfang der 1970er Jahre von der Charismatischen Bewegung erfasst und ist seitdem einer der besten Kenner ihrer Entwicklung. Father Peter lebt als pensionierter Priester seit 14 Jahren in Hainburg an der Donau und widmet sich neben seinen sonstigen Studien besonders der messianisch-jüdischen Bewegung.

Interview with Father Peter during ENC Conference 2014
Language: English
In February 2013 Fr. Peter Hocken and Marty Waldman, a leader in the Messianic Movement, met Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio in Buenos Aires and prayed for his upcoming trip to the conclave in Rome. Little did they know that they were blessing the future Pope Francis with whom they had shared the vision of "Toward Jerusalem Council II", an initiative to promote reconciliation between the historic Churches and the Jewish-Messianic believers in Yeshua.

In This Issue - a response
Language: English
As a Catholic friend and close observer of the Messianic Jewish movement, I want to give a warm welcome to Mark Kinzer’s new book Postmissionary Messianic Judaism. My reasons for this welcome are as follows. First, for seeking to provide a distinctively Messianic Jewish ecclesiology. His ecclesiology is summarised in five basic principles:
  1. the perpetual validity of God’s covenant with the Jewish people;
  2. the perpetual validity of the Jewish way of life rooted in the Torah, as the enduring sign and instrument of that covenant;
  3. the validity of Jewish religious tradition as the historical embodiment of the Jewish way of life rooted in the Torah;
  4. the bilateral constitution of the ekklesia, consisting of distinct but united Jewish and Gentile expressions of Yeshua-faith;
  5. the ecumenical imperative of the ekklesia, which entails bringing the redeemed nations of the world into solidarity with the people of Israel in anticipation of Israel’s — and the world’s — final redemption.

Language: German
Der Ruf an Katholiken, die Sünden der Vergangenheit zu bekennen, ist etwas Neues in der Geschichte der katholischen Kirche.
Dieser Ruf wurde zum ersten Mal 1994 von Papst Johannes Paul II in seinem Schreiben Tertio Millenio Adveniente (TMA) ausgedrückt, welches die Vorbereitung der Kirche für das große Jubeljahr 2000 einleitete.
Weil es sich bei diesem Thema um ein neues Gebiet in katholischer Lehre und theologischer Reflektion handelt, gibt es noch kein wohl etabliertes Vokabular.
Papst Johannes Paul II hat die notwendige theologische Reflektion darüber selbst ermutigt, indem er die Internationale Theologenkommission beauftragt hat, an diesem Thema zu arbeiten. Das daraus resultierende Dokument der Kommission, "Erinnern und Versöhnen: Die Kirche und die Verfehlungen in ihrer Vergangenheit" (EV), erschien wenige Tage vor der Feier der Bußliturgie im Petersdom zu Rom, am 12. März 2000.
In dieser Liturgie unter dem Vorsitz des Papstes bekannten sieben hochrangige Würdenträger aus Schlüsselämtern der römischen Kurie Sünden der Vergangenheit, die in einem konkreten Zusammenhang mit ihrem Verantwortungsbereich standen.
An Emerging Pentecostal Ecumenism?
Language: English
The worldwide growth of the Pentecostal movement, especially its dissemination in Africa, Asia and Latin America, is generally known but differently interpreted.
In unsympathetic circles in the Western world, particularly within the Catholic Church, this phenomenon is seen in negative terms as the proliferation of sects, generally with no distinctions being made between undoubtedly Christian groups and clearly heterodox bodies, that believe in authoritative revelation subsequent to Jesus Christ and the New Testament.
While church leaders are worried about the loss of members to these newcomers, theologians in the West have largely ignored the whole phenomenon.

The Relationship between the Messianic Jewish movement and the Charismatic movement
Language: English
In this article I wish to reflect on the relationships between the Messianic Jewish and charismatic movements in order to look at their places in God's one plan to "bring together everything in heaven and on earth under the headship of Christ" (Eph 1:10).
It is not my understanding that the Messianic Jewish movement simply forms part of the charismatic movement.
However, the links between the two are more than merely incidental, as the charismatic movement has exercised a major influence on the Messianic Jewish movement and has contributed significantly to its dynamism.

The Rise of the Messianic Jewish Movement
My interpretation of the historical data is that one can date the rise of the Messianic Jewish movement to 1967 following the Six-Day war in June that year.
Of course there were significant antecedents prior to 1967.
For example there was the congregation of the Israelites of the New Covenant formed by Joseph Rabinowicz in Kishinev, Moldova in the 1880s; there were the Hebrew Christian congregations formed in North America from soon after the first World War, and there was the initially slow emergence of congregations of Jewish believers in Israel following the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.
However, none of these gave rise to a dynamic movement, not even on a merely national or regional level. But they were truly forerunners of today's Messianic Jewish movement.
The Ecumenical Grace of Charismatic Renewal
Language: English
For many years a major tension has existed in the Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) between, on the one hand, the need for the renewal to be authentically Catholic and to contribute in a significant way to the renewal of the Catholic Church, and, on the other hand, to do justice to the ecumenical character of the Renewal from its beginnings and to realize its major potential for Christian unity.

Both concerns have a fundamental legitimacy. From this angle, the tension is necessary. In this article I suggest ways to maintain this tension so that neither tendency takes over from the other: either the unity concern becomes so dominant that the need for the Renewal as an identifiable expression of charismatic renewal is called into question, or the concern to be Catholic leads to an ignoring or playing down of its ecumenical character and potential.

Interview for magazin Nahlas

I: You've been a part of Catholic Charismatic Renewal for many years. How did this change your life and ministry?

PH: Yes, I've been a part of Catholic Charismatic Renewal since 1971. I came into touch with the Renewal when I first read about the beginnings in the US and a book by Kevin and Dorothy Ranaghan. I was in Rome studying, when I heard about the renewal. When I got back to England in the autumn of 1971, I saw a weekend advertised that was on the gift of prophecy and so I went. That was in October 1971. That was the first time I met people who were involved in the Renewal. I went to my first prayer meeting the following week and started to experience the work of the Spirit almost immediately.

Deze brochure over de Maranen, de Joden uit Spanje, Portugal en Latijns-Amerika, die onder dwang gedoopt zijn, is de derde in de serie brochures van TJC-II (Toward Jerusalem Council II).
TJC-II is opgericht in 19961. In maart 1998 maakten de leden van het Uitvoerend Comité, tezamen met een groep voorbidders, een gebeds- reis naar Spanje waarbij de steden Granada, Cordoba en Toledo bezocht werden.
Vanaf die tijd wist het leiderschap van TJC-II dat we op zekere dag de geschiedenis en het lijden van de Maranen bespreekbaar zouden moeten maken.

Defining Issues in Pentecostalism: Classical and Emergent
Source: Geistgewirkt - Geistbewegt, GGE Verlag, Hamburg
Language: English
In the last decade Pentecostal studies have been coming into their own, with the emergence of a new generation of Pentecostal scholars and a growing interest in the wider academic world.
The greater interest is clearly connected with the rapid spread of Pentecostal and charismatic revivalistic faith on the emerging continents of Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Studebaker’s collection of essays gathers the papers, mostly by Canadian scholars, presented at the Pentecostal Forum hosted by McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, in 2007.
The editor’s introduction presents Pentecostalism as comprising three "waves", classical Pentecostalism, the Charismatic Renewal from the 1950s and "the neo-charismatic movement" or "Third Wave", spear-headed by C. Peter Wagner and John Wimber in the 1980s.
The third label is misleading, accepting too uncritically Wagner’s 1980s self-perception of this development before he identified the beginnings of a "New Apostolic Reformation".
It also betrays the North-American centredness of the volume, since the worldwide explosion of new charismatic-type networks and churches has not simply been launched from the USA.
Here we touch on a dilemma faced not only by the editor but by the whole Pentecostal movement in North America.
The massive growth of Pentecostalism as a dynamic explosion of spiritual experience and phenomena is happening above all in Africa, Asia and Latin America, at the same time as Pentecostal scholars in North America are attaining some respectability and notice in the academic world.
Strategy for Renewal
Language: English
I am taking as my launching pad a statement of Fr Raniero Cantalamessa: "The Renewal is nothing if it is not prophetic".
For me, the opposite of prophetic is domesticated.
So my question is: what is needed to ensure that the Renewal is truly prophetic and does not become tamed or domesticated?

New patterns of formation in the roman catholic church and the role of catholic charismatic renewal
Language: English
This article examines how currents of renewal, particularly the charismatic movement, have been leading to new patterns of Christian formation within the Roman Catholic Church.
I will look first at the overall context; secondly, at the first stage of reform and renewal in Catholic formation (1965-85) and then at the more recent period (1985 to the present).
Finally, I offer some reflections on differences between Evangelical and Roman Catholic patterns of formation.

The People of the Covenant - part 1
Source: StuCom
Language: English
One of the most remarkable changes in Catholic teaching and attitudes resulting from the Second Vatican Council concerns the Jewish people.
For the first time the Catholic Church gave an authoritative teaching on this subject.
The teaching corrects the exegesis and thinking that had shaped Catholic attitudes to the Jews throughout the ages.
Since the Council, the Vatican Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews has issued three further documents: Guidelines on Religious Relations with the Jews (1974); Notes on the Correct Way to present the Jews and Judaism in Preaching and Catechesis in the Roman Catholic Church (1985) and We Remember (1998), a reflection on the Holocaust.
In this first article, I will first summarise the teaching of the Council, noting how this has been developed by the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Pope John Paul II.
Where the Catechism and the Pope add to the Council's teaching, these points are mentioned subsequently.
The People of the Covenant - part 2
Source: StuCom
Language: English
The teaching of Vatican Two on the Jewish people might seem at first sight to be a minor theological adjustment on a borderline issue.
However, the more we dig into the questions that it raises, the clearer it becomes that the place of the Jewish people touches on very foundational issues such as the relationship between the two Testaments and the two covenants, the nature of the Church and the human identity of Jesus.
It is then not surprising that it is taking the Catholic Church some time to work out all the implications of this remarkable transformation in understanding.
Israel nog steeds Gods volk

Over de veranderde verhouding tussen de kerk en het joodse volk en de rol van paus Johannes Paulus II daarin.

Tijdens het bezoek van Johannes Paulus II aan Jeruzalem in maart 2000, vond er bij het holocaustmuseum Jad-Vashem een ontroerende ontmoeting plaats.
De paus werd daar welkom geheten door Edith Tzirer, een joodse vrouw van 79 jaar, die gevangengezeten had in het kamp Skarzysko-Kamennia en tegen het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog was vrijgelaten.
Van een jonge priesterstudent kreeg de uitgemergelde vrouw destijds brood en thee, voordat hij haar op zijn schouders tilde en naar het drie kilometer verderop gelegen treinstation bracht. Die student was de latere Johannes Paulus II.

Talk given by Peter Hocken to the Toward Jerusalem Council Two European Consultation in Vienna, February 2003

The vision of Toward Jerusalem Council Two is very simple. It is a vision for the coming together of the Jewish and Gentile elements in the one body of Messiah.
Earlier this year, TJCII published my booklet Toward Jerusalem Council II: The Vision and the Story.
The booklet has aroused some discussion, which is to be welcomed. But through this discussion, I have seen that I have not paid enough attention in the booklet to the concept of reconciliation, which is central to the vision received by Marty Waldman.
You can see how central reconciliation is for this vision from the "official" documents of TJCII, that are printed as appendices to the booklet.
In what I wrote, I focused as a Gentile Christian on recognition, the need for the Church in the nations to recognize the resurrected Jewish expression of the Church. My own focus on recognition neglected the role of the Jewish believers in the realization of the vision.
For reconciliation is a work of two parties. So in this talk and in the organisation of this Consultation, we have tried to correct this imbalance.
There is a task for the Gentile believers, and a task for the Jewish.
The Historic Churches and the Messianic Jews
Source: StuCom
Language: English
TJCII is a vision for reconciliation between the Jewish and the Gentile parts of the body of Messiah.
The most difficult part of this enterprise, both humanly and spiritually, is the relationship between the ancient Churches of East and West, on the one hand, and the Messianic Jews on the other hand.

For the Messianic Jews, the Catholic and Orthodox Churches are seen as the major perpetrators of the age-long oppression and humiliation of the Jewish people, as well as those responsible for the various forms of replacement of the Jewish by the Gentile, including the replacement of the Sabbath by the Lord’s Day.
The veneration of Mary and the saints that constitutes a common element in the heritage of the ancient churches is perceived by the Messianic Jews as a sign of typically Gentile debasement of authentic Jewish monotheism.
Roman Catholics and Non-Denominational Christians

Language: English
Talk given in Rome: April 30, 2003

The sub-title of this talk could be Why We Must Meet?; or Why We Must Work Together? But maybe it is better expressed: Why We Need Each Other?
A first reason for our coming together could be the sheer size and scope of the non- denominational charismatic phenomenon in the world today.
The New International Dictionary of the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements that Stan Burgess has edited gives a statistic of 295 million.
At the very least, there is need for those in the historic Churches, and not least in the Catholic Church, to pay attention to this phenomenon, to seek to find out what is happening, and then to understand it.
Such understanding needs to take place at various levels and within various disciplines.

There are six sections in DJ; the first three are given over to the unicity of Jesus and the last three to the unicity and the role of the Church.

Revival and Renewal
Language: English
In November 1980, I presented a paper at the SPS Conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma entitled "The Pentecostal Charismatic Movement as Revivaland Renewal". It was printed in the issue of Pneuma for Spring 1981. As the title suggests, I wanted to present the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements as contain in gelements of bath revival and renewal, arguing that one or other umcept on its own is not adequate to capture the character of the phenomenon as a whole.

I am returning to this subject because it still corresponds to issues that have been and remain important fir me as a Roman Catholic Christian, committed to what I would call an ecumenical vision of this whole outpouring of the Spirit. Part of this vision is a conviction that the Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are different fslcets or subdivisions in a larger phenomenon, and that they cannot be rightly interpreted in isolation from one onother. Another element in this vision is that the Charismatic renewal in the Roman Catholic Church is an intrinsic and distinctive element within the wider Charismatic movement, and that it is one of the most original features of the Charismatic movement; in a way that has no historical precedent, it is a movement that has touched both Evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics.
Catholic Pentacostalizm: Some key questions - part 2
Language: English
In the second part of this study some key Pentecostal and neo-Pentecostal practices and beliefs are examined: the Laying-on of Hands, Gifts of the Spirit, and Glossolalia; I then consider the place of Reason, and offer some conclusions.

THE LAYING-ON OF HANDS

Neo-Pentecostals have followed classical Pentecostals in the practice of imposing hands in prayer for particular blessings on the person 'prayed over'. This gesture is associated particularly with prayer for 'baptism in the Spirit', for particular gifts of the Spirit and for healing. Catholics so doing do not to my knowledge show any signs of confusing this practice with the imposition of hands proper to confirmation and ordination. This practice is presented as a return to a more biblical pattern for requesting and obtaining the blessings of God.
Catholic Pentacostalizm: Some key questions - part 1
Language: English
If the term "Catholic Pentecostalism" is accepted, the first subject for discussion is the relationship and distinction between "Classical" and Catholic Pentecostalism. By "Classical Pentecostalism" is generally meant those Churches or denominations which both (i) profess at least two identifiable religious experiences in coming to full Christian life, viz: (a) 'water-baptism', first conversion or re-birth and (b) 'spirit-baptism', second conversion or being 'filled with the Spirit' and (ii) regard speaking in tongues as either the essential or the typical sign of 'spirit-baptism'. With these Churches are also associated other preternatural gifts of the Spirit mentioned in the New Testament, such as prophecy, interpretation of tongues and healing. The term 'neo-Pentecostalism' refers to the occurrence of these pheno- mena within the non-Pentecostal Churches, a development which has gathered momentum in almost all such Churches in recent years; the movement arose in many of the Protestant Churches in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and spread to the Catholic Church in the mid-late 1960s.s "Catholic Pentecostalism", originally favoured as the designation for Catholics so affected, has tended to be replaced by the phrase "the Catholic charismatic renewal".
