With Pope Francis we are living at a special moment in Christian history. For myself, I think it is almost impossible to exaggerate the importance of this kairos moment the Lord is giving through Francis.
One area where we see this potential for what is radically new is the area of ecumenical relations. This newness is very obvious in Catholic relations with Pentecostals and charismatic or charismaticized Evangelicals.
So this paper examines this newness, asking how the Holy Spirit is leading the Catholic Church forward in this pontificate, and what this means for future relations between the Catholic Church and the Pentecostal-charismatic world.
