ECCLESIAL RENEWAL MOVEMENTS WHAT DO THEY COMMUNICATE?
I am taking a perspective more suited to a communicator in
analyzing the merits and demerits of the Christian renewal
movements. I try to see what these movements are communicating to
the world at large though their performances. Obviously, I limit
myself to those movements that aim primarily to help the faithful
understand and live a life filled with faith. In my search a number of
professors from ecclesiastical universities who are familiar with these
movements, have been my help, but most of them like to remain
