Lou Engle of The Call is again raising concerns after a Roman Catholic leader prostrated at his feet on Saturday in declaring that he wanted to “kiss his feet” in an act of reconciliation between Christians and Catholics, and Engle returned the act by likewise kissing the man’s shoe.

The gesture took place during “Azusa Now,” an event hosted by The Call, which was attended by over 100,000 people at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

“Believing that decades of globe-spanning prayer have saturated the heavens, we will boldly ask God for the rain of revival,” a description of the event states. “We will consecrate an entire day—15 hours—for the purpose of unity, miracles, healing, and the proclamation of the gospel.”

Engle had specifically invited Roman Catholics to attend the event.

“We just want to welcome our Catholic brothers and sisters from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to gather together to pray,” he said in a promotional video. “Come join your brothers and sisters at the Memorial Coliseum believing for a move of unity and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.”

The irony that will be largely missed her is that Charismaticism is Rome- same spirit in different manifestations. It's all works-based salvation. They are just calling to each other from the ditch on either side of the road of truth.

Pentecostal "manifestations" go back to Azusa and even before that, but Catholics claimed to have kicked off the ecumenical "charismatic renewal" back in the '60s. Same root, different branches.

Agreed. Even pentecostal eschatology can be traced to the Catholic Chiliaism of the 16th century.

It's all works-based. The charismatics require "spiritual" works of healing and manifestations. The Catholics require works of penance and the sacraments.
