Bishop Michael Burbidge of Raleigh, N.C., said the latest session of the international Catholic-Pentecostal dialogue allowed leaders of the two religions "to renew our common faith in the healing power of Jesus," who "continues to demonstrate his love and miracles in our midst."

Healing was the topic of this year's discussion.

"The dialogue has helped us to focus on how the charism of healing is understood, expressed and celebrated in our churches and faith communities," Burbidge, Catholic co-chairman of the dialogue, said in a statement.
