Catholic Charismatic Testimonies: Fran

Read Fran O'Neill's testimony about how Catholic Charismatic Renewal has changed her life.

How did you get involved with Catholic Charismatic Renewal?

When I was 20, a friend took me to the New Dawn conference in Walsingham, knowing I needed some time and encouragement to make difficult life choices.

In the middle of a muddy field in Norfolk, I met people who lived with a joy that I had not encountered before. I wanted to know what they had that I did not have. One evening, a priest shared a word of knowledge that was so specific to me. In that moment, I knew that God knew me and loved me.

Since that moment, I count myself blessed to be surrounded by other members of the Charismatic Renewal, all of whom witness to me the joy of knowing Jesus on a daily basis.

What impact has Catholic Charismatic Renewal had on your life?

It is no exaggeration to say that the Catholic Charismatic Renewal has changed the trajectory of my life.

Through teaching and formation, it has rooted me in the truths of my faith. I have grown through encouragement and prayer, and see the fruits of a relationship with Jesus in my life.
