    Background: More than 10,000 Pentecostal Catholics gathered in Rome on Friday (16 May) to begin a four-day conference on "charismatic renewal".

    They met in different locations near an ancient Christian burial place.

    On Saturday (17 May) there were visits to the catacombs and later in the afternoon an outdoor session on the renewal of baptism and confirmation.

    The participants have come from all parts of the world for the gigantic festival of renewal and conciliation timed to coincide with the church's Holy Year.

    Many of the participants "spoke in tongues" in the way the Holy Spirit is supposed to have inspired the apostles on the first pentecost over 1,900 years ago.

    The movement for Charismatic Renewal, which was founded in the United States with 15 members seven years ago, acts as a pressure group within the Catholic Church.
