The Rise of Charismatic Catholicism in Latin America

Edward L. Cleary

University Press of Florida

In the surging sea of faith that the Catholic Charismatic Renewal stimulated, the wave of enthusiastic faith spread first from the United States in the 1970s and began rebounding back to the United States a decade or two later. The small Caribbean countries under investigation in this chapter were part of this rebounding surge. These Caribbean Charismatics added to the revitalization of the church in the United States, joining Mexican and other Latin American immigrants. Puerto Rican, Cuban, and Haitian Catholics all went through severe challenges to their Catholic identities from hostile environments and from religious challengers. Catholics reinforced their commitment to the church through earlier lay movements, such as Catholic Action and Cursillos de Cristiandad, and later through the Catholic Charismatic Renewal movement. The renewal stimulated interest in spiritual growth and contributed to a spiritual reawakening in these countries. Other religious groups, including Pentecostals, shared in this religious revival.
