    THE TOUCHING NEW INSIGHTS RECEIVED
    Innovative Group

     The lack of Pneumatological vision and experience of the Spirit sows death everywhere.
     We recognize the presence of the Spirit everywhere, in all religions, and people on earth.
     Doctrine itself will not give life but what gives life is that which the doctrine is about.
     What save us is not solid doctrine, but real and active presence of God and his Spirit n us.
     The doctrine should be made alive so that it can touch and fire up the hearts of others.
     Jesus did not perform any act of love by doctrine, but doctrine arouse to understand, freeing, healing and rescuing Jesus.
     Unbiblical understanding of Spirit is something power, force, also which guide the conscience.
     Biblical understanding of Spirit is a person, God, Co-equal to Father and son. A person with mind, emotion and will.
     The summary of Pneumatology is about sin, righteousness and judgement.
     Give importance for three person of the Trinity- God the Father, son, Spirit.

    Clarifications
    1. It is fact that the presence of Spirit brings joy and peace. Also we learn that everywhere there is presence of Spirit, irrespective of multi religion, culture, technology. If it so why there is still violence, hateredness?
    2. Why the power of Spirit is not able to overcome the evils of this world?

    Expectation from the course
    1. To be aware of the Holy spirit in the Church and in the people and within us.
    2. To have a clear view of the Holy spirit.
    3. Going through this course we would like to experience the Holy Spirit in our life, in our charism and strengthen our will and dedicate our whole being through Holy Spirit to God alone.
    4. Understand the works of the Holy Spirit.
    Introduction
    • Doctrine teaches and enables us: to identify the real from the fake; to understand which way to turn on the many matters of our life that Jesus did not speak on.
    • A doctrine without life is like a dead letter. It is not able to touch us inside, neither to put us into action, to fire up our passion, or to change our attitude toward life.
    • The Holy Spirit is a Person. The Holy Spirit is God. And since He is God, He is also co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son.
    • Pneumatology teaches us that the Holy Spirit is: A Person, with a mind, emotions, and will.
    • “The Spirit of God brings conviction of sin (Jn. 16:8). He imparts the new birth (Jn. 3:5).
    • He indwells in individual Christian (1 Cor. 6:19) to comfort, guide, sustain, and strengthen us, and to bear witness to the truth.
    • A good church will recognize the Holy Spirit both for who He is and for what He does.
    • The Holy Spirit has sometimes been called the “neglected Person of the Godhead,” and rightly so in many circles
    • Where there is Mary our Mother, there is a presence of the Holy Spirit.
    • We are the anointed ones of the Holy Spirit.

    Spirit filed Group;

     The presence of Jesus (on earth) in the Blessed sacrament is a heavenly presence by the action of the Holy Spirit.
     We don’t give much importance to the Holy spirit who is (our church is a Christo-centric not in Spirit Centered) present and intervenes in the sacraments.
     The concentration can be in our Religious practices, sermons, Catechism to the children and youth, and in the teachings of the Church etc.…we should give enough priority to the Holy spirit.
     Sometime Holy spirit remains as the least understood person, therefore we need to find out ways and means to present the Holy Spirit to the people properly.

     It is the effort to recover the value of the physical body in the context of today’s ecological crisis.
     The Holy Spirit is present everywhere. God created everything out of his love, God is a friend to the World. When nature is in danger through pollution we are destroying God’s creation; creation is the body of God which we need to respect and take care.

     Is your founder or your foundress a charismatic leader?
    Yes, he was a charismatic man. A man moved and led by the Spirit throughout his life, a person full of spirit. He was so fascinating and captivating that whenever he preached many people used to flock to listen to him, a magnetic person.
     From the perspective of genius – superman…
    For me he was a super genius, because from his childhood onwards he was so experts in machines. Always he thought of creating something new. And the same style of thought continued in his life. In his preaching ministry too he used various means and ways to reach to the people. He was truly genius.
     From sociological perspective
    From the sociological perspective I would say that-he had innate desire to save the people from eternal fire. This is was there from his childhood onwards. This was slowly developed in him when the time was urgent, this aspect was awakened. He preached the Gospel to all, for the greater glory of GOD, and salvation of all. This he did in a group, the persons who were filled by the same spirit and desires.
     From psychological perspective
    He had great power to pull the people towards God. He also had authority over the evil powers. Many were attract to him because of his charismatic preaching.
     Main characteristics of your style
     Doing everything for the greater glory of God, salvation of oneself and for all.
     An itinerant preacher
     Being in community and moving out to preach the Word, just like the apostles.

    1. Is your founder a charismatic leader?
    He is a charismatic leader in his preaching and in bringing the poor souls to Christ. St. Louis de Montfort is preacher of parish missions, for whom the spiritual life cannot be separated from the ministry. He lived his whole life preaching and bringing the poor souls to God.
    2. Perspective of genius – superman…
    He was true genius and superman because of his service in restoring the spirit of Christianity in the heart of the baptized and in human societies.
    3. From sociological perspective
    From his childhood, he had great desire for Christ and he show Christ in everyone. Once in his journey to a parish, he happened to see a poor man who was injured and bleeding, he took him on his shoulder to an unknown house saying, “Open to Jesus Christ”, this shows that he was a man for others in need. This reminds me of the story of a Good Samaritan in the Bible.
    4. From psychological perspective
    He made a great impact in the life of the poor; he was one with them in their suffering and pain. At poor house of Paoutha, he found many poor dying of various sicknesses; he embraced them with his love and concern. He cleaned their wounds and fulfilled their psychological desires at the end of their lives. A true model of ‘God alone’ lived in the midst of poor.
    Main characteristics of your style
    • The main style is; we are called to empower the youth, particularly the poor, and all those who are struggling for justice.
    • This requires transformation of the persons that they may be able to establish just and fraternal relationships, and attain sustainable development of the society.
    • Brothers witness to the love of Christ in different ways:
     They regard apostolic educational mission as the normal expression of their life of faith and of their religious commitment.
    • Montfort’s Mariology and Marian spirituality were completely based on the mystery of Incarnation, where Mary had a unique role to play. Montfort insists that all, to the absolute extent possible, must be given to Mary in order to be given to Jesus.
    • The essence of our spirituality, which we inherited from our founder, is: God Alone, Jesus Incarnate Wisdom, The Care for the Poor, The Cross, The Baptismal Promises, Mary; The Consecration to Jesus through Mary.

    SISTERS OF CHARITY OF ST. ANNE, with the Charism and Mission of the Holy Spirit:-
    By Sr.Cecila Joseph SCSA
    Our Founders Fr.John Bonal Cortada and Blessed Mother Maria Rafols Bruno were Charismatic leaders. The Charism our Founders received is dynamic, universal Charity mainly towards the most poor and needy through the practice of Hospitality, always open to the signs of the times in service to humanity for the building a kingdom of heaven on earth. Spanish Government recognized honored them as “Heroes of the City of Zaragoza”, for their heroic services during the French war and the Civil war.
    Dual Charism : Fr. John Bonal, an young University professor, resigned his job to serve the poor and needy together with Maria Rafols, an young lady just 23 years old. Our Charism is Dual Charism, Spirit-Advaita- communion-oneness. Fr. John became a pilgrim beggar, begging through the villages of war-ridden Spain, collecting anything that the poor villagers gave him for the sick people of the hospital. Months and years he travelled, in summer and winter, on feet or on a donkey through the road-less valleys and plains. In the night, he sat hours and hours at the confessionals and administering the sacraments, counselling etc. After Fr.John’s death, young Maria with her eleven companions took as challenge their existence with the courage, fortitude and Prayer, collaborated with the Spirit in living His Charism-Love. “to serve all kind of sick people without exception, even those of plagues or contagious diseases in the royal and General Hospital of Our Lady of Grace, Zaragoza. The Hospital’s motto was Urbis et Urbis-House of the sick of the city and of the world. Anyone from any country, with any type of illness would get admission and free treatment there. As their name comes from Charity- Love, they were inspired by the Spirit; proposed themselves as a Congregation of Sisters of Charity to exercise charity, mainly with foundling children, with insane people, with the orphans, unwed- mothers and poor girls and women, teaching them without charge, as it is usual in our schools”. We thankfully recognize that our congregation is a gift bestowed by the Spirit of Christ to the Church. Charity is the Origin of our Congregation, the reason for its existence, its specific character, its apostolic mission and the end toward which it is directed.
    Our Peculiar Style: With heroism our founders and First Sisters committed their life in living the evangelical Counsels through the vow of Hospitality in our communities. With heroism they shared the pain and suffering; in constant attitude of contemplation in action, prayer and work, boldness and risk, abnegation and humility and silence, poverty and simplicity, thus forming the identity of our Congregation. Together with three Evangelical Counsels, we live a fourth Vow-Hospitality-the core of our Charism up to heroism in five continents.
    Our Hospitality is manifested by the way of Welcoming anyone who comes to us ; the poor and the rich, the child and adult, the sick and healthy, downtrodden, etc seeing Christ in each one. We continue to create and recreate our history and the Spirit invites us to incarnate ourselves where we are and where we live; moved by a hope a gift of the Spirit that opens us to the possibility of believing and creating, we make a reality of this experience of the Spirit; many times the mission is without noise, with humility and with every detail, with total love. Our Motto is Love without frontiers. The Eucharist the sacrament of Love- sign of unity –the Spirit-the bond of charity- is source of life and center of our Communities. In present generation, the sustainable development consists in supporting the possibilities of the future.The environmental, economic and social needs of people of today, as areas of greater needs, mission countries, rural and liminal areas like slums into which the Spirit leads us.
