Bishop Tony Palmer Dies in Motorcycle Accident
Warning Catholic news service. The timing of this death seems suspicious so soon after the work to unite Protestants and Catholics with Tony Palmer helping with these efforts.
It seems Tony Palmer was invited into the Catholic Charismatic movement by it's leader Matteo Calisi.
"Then out of the blue, while I was working with the HIV Orphans Matteo Calisi contacted me and invited me to minister to his Community, 'The Community of Jesus'. So my wife and I sold our house and moved to Italy and have been working with and for the Catholic Church for 4 years now."
"Matteo Calisi is an international leader of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal in the Catholic Church.-
In 1992, together with the Pentecostal Pastor Rev. Dr. Giovanni Traettino (Bishop-Chairman of the Evangelical Church of the Reconciliation), Matteo founded Consultazione Carismatica Italiana (Italian Charismatic Consultation – CCI), a joint committee of Catholic Charismatics and Pentecostal Evangelicals, which started a dialogue between Catholics and Pentecostals in Italy. Presently Matteo is Co-President of CCI together with Rev. Traettino.
Together with some Evangelical and Catholic Argentinean leaders, Matteo founded the Comuniòn Renovada entre Catòlicos y Evangelicos en el Espiritu Santo (CRECES). This was the first joint statement in the history of the dialogue between Catholics and Evangelicals in Argentina and obtained a great support by Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Metropolitan Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Primate of the Catholic Church in Argentina and President of Bishops’ Conference of Argentina."
