Item Description...
Overview
We tend to overlook Peter's opening words to the crowd that first Pentecost morning, to our own peril. His denial of drunkenness in the wake of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit should stop us in our tracks. What was going on here? How did the apostles experience the Holy Spirit? What was he teaching them? How was he empowering them? What does this scene in the streets of Jerusalem mean for us today? Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa offers pastoral advice and leads the reader through passages of Scripture and the Fathers of the Church to remind us of the incalculable power of the Spirit available to us. This spiritual "intoxication" is an infilling--through the sacraments, especially the Eucharist, and the action of God--that purifies us of sin, renews the heart and enlightens the mind. As Saint Augustine said of the Spirit, "He found you empty and he filled you...I like this kind of intoxication. The Spirit of God is both drink and light."

Sober & Intoxi ated witht the Spirit  Jan 5, 2007
I like the book and the service provide by the company was excellent.
 
The importance of embracing the action of the Holy Spirit  Sep 24, 2006
There are many people who confuse the accidental (people waving their arms and clapping, being "slain in the spirit" etc) with the essential (the recognition of the action of the Holy Spirit in the Church.) In this book Fr. Cantalamessa seeks to clear up such misunderstandings, to lay a foundation of what the renewal in the Spirit means, and to further explain the importance of it.

Fr. Cantalamessa shares annecdotes from his life and the lives of others that witness to the action of the Holy Spirit through the ages, and of the sanctifying and transformative power of the Holy Spirit in the lives of people to this very day. This is certainly an instructive book in understanding what the Renewal in the Spirit is, what it is not, and the impacy it can have upon the lives of individual Christians and upon the Church.
 
Charismatic Renewal Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow  Nov 16, 2005
Cantalamessa, the papal preacher of Pope John Paul II's household, presents a collection of teachings on the Catholic Charismatic renewal, known in Italy, as "the renewal of the Spirit." He begins with an explanation of the term "sober intoxication of the Spirit" used by the Fathers of the Church: "an enthusiasm based on the cross and nourished by the cross." Within the charismatic renewal movement, this enthusiasm, is demonstrated through "spontaneous and creative prayer, songs, tongues, and the joy of being brothers and sisters and of being nourished by the pure milk of the word of God...and a firm commitment to building the kingdom of God within us and in the Church."

Cantalamessa describes virtues and actions that mark the renewal of the spirit today, and shows their roots in scripture. He addresses humility, which always involves something negative, as "self-denial, a renunciation of anything that is wrong in our intentions and our actions, an abasement of ourselves before we move in the direction of others," linking the experience to Jesus's "descending." He also explains the charisms, spiritual baptism, and the healing power of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is healer of both mind and body, he writes, including the mental illnesses of unbelief, idolatry, and superstition and heart diseases such as lack of will, the will to power, and the spirit of slavery.

This work is rich in details of the charismatic renewal and its role in establishing the Kingdom.
 
An Extraordinary Witness  Oct 26, 2005
When Catholics realize that since 1980 the preacher to the papal household, so far, of two great popes has been a Catholic charismatic, they must take a second look at the Charismatic Renewal which has for too long been viewed by most Catholics as something odd that the Church merely tolerates out of kindness. What Fr. Canatalamessa says in this book is that the Charismatic Renewal is for every Catholic--it is a renewal and unleashing of the graces received in sacramental Baptism and Confirmation and in the other sacraments. In nine chapters, he explains clearly and simply but with the precision and balance of the first-rate theologian that he is how the renewal relates to the sacramental system of the Church and to Christian life. He even critiques some of the excesses of some charismatics who become puffed up over their charisms (as the Corinthians did in the first century!) and those individuals who want to receive charisms but still remain in objective situations of mortal sin, especially in the area of sexual morality (again reminders of the Corinthians to whom Paul wrote in the first century). These critiques show the wisdom, prudence, and balance of Fr. Cantalamessa. Yet, none of the warts in any way suppresses the enthusiasm of Fr. Cantalamessa for the action of the Holy Spirit in the renewal and its promise for the Church. His book is prophetic and calls all Catholics to open up to the abundant, joyful, and full life of the Spirit. The title of the book is taken from a Latin quote from St. Ambrose that is translated: "Let us drink the sober intoxication of the Spirit with joy!" Fr. Cantalamessa persuasively and soberly invites each of us to this new, joyful, and uplifting intoxication. If a non-charismatic Catholic wants an introduction to the Charismatic Renewal, I can think of none better or more authoritative for these times. We are fortunate to have these collected talks translated into English. You can find a fuller review at the above blog link (Oct. 24, 2005, post).
