The Brazilian Prayer Group draws from the charismatic movement in Latin American Christianity. Most Church historians in Brazil agree that two American priests, Jesuit Father Harold Rahm and Father Edward Dougherty, started Catholic Charismatic communities in Brazil during the early 1970s. It was at a time when liberation theology and its controversial “ecclesial base communities” (CEBs) were becoming the flagship of the country’s post-Vatican II Church. The movement is responsible for starting many new ministries, facilitating the outpouring of new charisms and strengthening many spiritual communities.
