Ariel S. Levi Gualdo

Before you get going in the long speech it is necessary to clarify the meaning of the word heresy. The need for clarification is due to the fact that within the Church itself has been undermined by time Newspeak, And it came to explain how years ago in one of the first items on this our Patmos Island [2014, see WHO], and then follow in my so-called keynote [see video, WHO]. Newspeak is not just create new words, or called neologisms, but perform an operation even worse: giving the words a meaning different from that etymologically have ch'esse. The emptying of the words from their meaning filled with completely different meanings, is a grave danger that the phenomenon takes development before, during and after the French Revolution. An exhaustive example is the concepts of freedom, equality and fraternity, which they are suffixes of the founding of Christianity, not an invention of the French Revolution. Principles, however,, the late eighteenth century, and following the course of the nineteenth century, They will change into principles antithetical to Christianity, what's more used to attack and groped scuttle of Christianity itself.


Repeatedly, in my many writings, I expressed deep concern how certain words, inside the church, we have assumed a negative connotation. Some examples: it is not uncommon to hear clergymen suffering from gross ignorance and theologians made more ignorant still on their pride, they use words such as "dogma" and "dogmatic", "Tridentine" or "tradition", even for offending your hosts: "... do not listen to him, It has an old mindset Tridentine ", "How much are you dogmatically!», "Ah, all these old dogmas!». Then comes the interior disregard legal and canonical system that regulates - or at least once regulated - the life of that societas which it is the Church, therefore, if before the authentic various kinds of abuse you dare to remind certain people that have or ecclesiastical laws prohibit, Today it happens frequently to be told: "enough, with these legalisms. There you may have noticed that in the Church there was a council?». And so it was that a self-styled historian of the Church with mocking arrogance asked me if I had heard that there had been a council, answered:


"Apart from the fact that in the Church of councils there were a total of twenty-one, But if you're referring to last, Know effect that they were summoned, It takes place and was finally closed in full compliance with all applicable laws and the canonical procedures. N'E evidence that before convening the Second Vatican Council, Pope John XXIII provident with a special bubble to close the First Vatican Council, who for various reasons of historical and political character had never been formally closed. Therefore it is easy to say that the opening of Vatican II starts right in full compliance with all the standard procedures'.


On the other hand it is well known: only priests and theologians are able to reach similar perversions of thought. Or maybe someone knows some judge, some prosecutor, some lawyer, or popular judges of the Assize Court that during the legal questions have began by saying: "enough, with these legalisms!». And if this is - but it is not ever happened in civil society - quell'eventuale recognized as mass murderer driven by preterintenzionalità, on the basis of what will be judged? On the basis of what criteria, except through judging criteria dictated exhaustively by law, this will determine if he deserves a life sentence or whether it will not be held guilty for suffering from mental disorders proven that despite his heinous crime, however, does not make it capable of acting intentionally, doing so come less than willful misconduct and guilt?





All this to achieve so as clear as possible to explain the word heresy, used in this paper to indicate the serious doctrinal errors of a Catholic lay movement: the Neocatechumenal Way.


The term heresy It comes from greek heresy and it is derived from elective, which literally means "grab", "to take", but it can also mean "choose" or "elect". In this lemma the Christian lexicon appears in Acts [cf. 5,17; 24,5; 24,14; 26,5; 28, 22] where it is assumed to indicate a person who after having weighted makes a choice animated by intentionality. In this Apostolic Letters greek motto he is hired and changed in its original etymology to take on a meaning all bad, linked to a deliberate choice of what is not true or that of divine revelation has been taken and altered [cf. The Cor 11, 19; Maybe 5,20; Pt II 2, 1]. It seems to make use of the word "heresy" to indicate and to fight deviant Christian currents in the authentic and correct apostolic teaching has been the first to the Father of the Church of the second century Justin thresholds.


Enter a theological school of thought, a pastoral style, or as in our specific case lay movement as a whole affection and contained such heresies, It constitutes neither an insult nor a treason attack. Say heretic, is not in fact synonymous with immoral nor synonymous with thug. In this case, two examples will suffice to clarify: l'eresiarca Pelagio [Britannia 360 – Palestine 420] It was not an immoral or dissolute. anything: It was an ascetic, a man driven by penitential spirit and strong will, the whole is then also join a deep culture. Those who lived in the course of their lives various forms of immorality and debauchery, who gave birth to a son without assuming his duties as a father and husband, this was Aurelio Thagaste, who converted and became Augustine of Hippo [Tagaste 354 – Ippona 430], Today the Holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church, heresies of Pelagius to the refuted one by one; and to do likewise became a work cut, given that this heresiarch was neither naive, nor without deep faith - though corrupted by error -, nor it was devoid of credit and followed by the Christian faithful.


another example: in 1215 the Fourth Lateran Council condemned the abbot Joachim of Fiore [cell 1130 – Pietrafitta 1202] a heretical thought known as millenarianism the gioachimismo. Note that neither the council which condemned him nor the Supreme Pontiffs who have succeeded by Innocent III summoned and presided over that meeting, They never doubted his holiness of life. Several times he even tried to beatify, albeit with failure. In 2001, on the occasion of the eighth centenary of his death, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Cosenza opened the diocesan phase of the process of beatification, the outcome of which - after coming to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints - at least we hope they remain uncertain.


It is reasonable penned these introductory pages only to come to say that in the Catholic lay movement known as Neocatechumenal, founded by the Spaniards Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández dead [Ólvega 1930 – Madrid 2016], there are not a few and disturbing elements heretical? Yes, it is reasonable to explain carefully all, if within the Church itself, unfortunately, we do not know the meaning of words, including the word heresy.


Structurally, this Movement, It is a sect for initiates election riddled with Christological heresies, pneumatological and ecclesiological. And, Despite long years of appeals and repeatedly directions given by the Supreme Pontiffs in persons, It continues to claim the right to have its specific Eucharistic liturgies and never approved by the Church, indeed decisively condemned by the documents of the Magisterium, in particular from the detailed Education Sacramentum of 2004, that seems almost written for members of this Movement [full text of the document, WHO]. This is combined with a catechism that beyond the texts agreed with the Holy See, but not respected rigor, spread doctrines contrary to those contained in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. What will certainly not secondary is their erroneous perception of the common priesthood of the baptized and the ministerial priesthood of the Ministers in sacris, with the consequence that within this movement the sacramental figure of Priests is totally dominated by that of laypersons, the so-called mega-catechists. And the perception of everything wrong that permeates the priesthood and that remains the Movement, It is dedicated the final part of my discussion.


Most of the mega-catechists of this movement They are having a doctrinal and theological preparation seriously flawed, If not sometimes non-existent. Tend to show themselves contemptuous of those who, through long years of study and research, he studied the various branches of the theological sciences, because it believes it has an initiatory wisdom that comes directly to them by the grace of the Holy Spirit, or rather by their idea completely unorthodox with the Holy Spirit. It is in fact well known and proven how these mega-catechists, when they were retrieved from theologians who have explained the serious doctrinal errors contained in certain of their catechesis, in response they reacted indicating these distinguished scholars - often men of great priestly piety and proven virtues of Christian life - as the subjects' closed to the actions of the Spirit ".





The history of this Movement It comes to life half a century ago and in that time have occurred on the Chair of Peter five Popes who for reasons not known to us have decided not to act in a firm and necessary way with authority, all while under their two Laity Lords eyes literally did what they wanted of the Holy Eucharist, at the same time giving the faithful a very wrong view of history of the Church, ecclesiology and sacramental. Some of the Neocatechumenal Movement leaders are accustomed to teaching their followers - then objected to outside criticism -, Recalling that two of these five Popes were canonized: Paul VI and John Paul II. Well, rather than an objection is indeed a truly non-Catholic perception of holiness itself, place that holiness does not require any exemptions from any error and then perfection.


Recall that the recognition of the heroic virtues, does not imply that every act, gesture, choice and decision accomplished in his life who was elevated to the altars, imply absolute perfection and total exemption from any kind of misjudgment, action or pastoral governance. Who thought this would fall so in a serious and gross heresy, thereby changing the Saints - or if some Popes Saints - in the Word of God incarnate, that since God was perfect as a man and his human nature was totally free from any experience even mild sin. Only Christ the Lord, however, was perfect in his human nature as God made man, and generated by the Holy Spirit from the Virgin preserved from the stain of original sin. Saints, instead, besides being born and being washed with the Holy Baptism from original sin, because they tend toward holiness were tempted by the Devil who has often tried by every means to induce them much more than others in sin and error. And maybe, their sinning and making mistakes, then washing from sin and correcting errors by virtue of the grace of the Holy Spirit from them accepted and fructified, They have become Saints, then models of heroic virtue for the people of God throughout.


How many saints have become such after departing from a human condition of life often burdened for a long time from the worst sins? The first historical information we have of the Blessed Apostle Paul, They are those for the case of the great diffuser of Christianity, or rather those related to Saul of Tarsus regretted not having the "canonical" age required to participate in the stoning of the deacon first martyr Stephen? [cf. At 7, 54-60]. Sant'Agostino, which has run previously mentioned, It may have arisen as a zealous Christian and especially as a virtue of caste model? I therefore find it disturbing that today, currents of thought or ecclesial lay movements, do blatant abuse of the figures of the last Popes Saints to effectively canonizing everything in thoughts, words and increasingly aggressive prescriptive forms they claim to impose on the entire Church.


Let us be very clear without hesitation, but above all try to be all the way: Holy Church canonized Blessed Pope John Paul II through a pronouncement definitive which falls within the so-called second degree the infallible teaching [cf. To defend the faith, § 2] exercised in this case by the Supreme Pontiff Francis I [cf. Lumen Gentium, n. 25]. The pronouncement definitive But as the heroic virtues of this Holy Pontiff, of which the Church has certainly not dogmatized formula definitional every pastoral option and Government, including the unfortunate acceptance of the Neocatechumenal Way, not to be confused at all so fraudulent propaganda and with his full approval, why the Holy Father John Paul II granted it; its maximum concession was a test to experiment granted on 28 June 2002, when the then President of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, Cardinale James Francis Stafford, Founders gave the Movement the text of the decree approving to experiment of their new statute duly revised and corrected in previous years by the competent dicasteries of the Holy See. As it was granted provisional approval to experiment Statute, the twelve volumes of the Catechetical Directory of the Movement seguitavano instead to lie sub judice [under the scrutiny of the judge] at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, headed at the time by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.


So acceptance and approval conditioning, not full approval. A acceptance, however, occurred at very tight teeth, in the hope of being able to correct the doctrinal and liturgical deviations of this movement by holding it in the bosom of the Holy Church. Therefore, if under the pontificate of the Holy Father John Paul II, pastorally responsible for failing to intervene in time and with the necessary and decisive authority, the Neocatechumenal Way has made every worst form of liturgical abuse and deviation from the orthodox Catholic doctrine, everything - that is theologically clear - it is not sealed by any automatic or dogmatic formula final nor definitional due to sudden canonization of Blessed Pope John Paul II. Therefore, the canonization of Blessed Pope John Paul II does not imply in any way and for any reflection of the canonization of the Neocatechumenal Way, nor they can rise to the dogma of faith their liturgical abuses and appalling blunders he doctrinaire disseminated today by their mega-catechists.


Without detracting from the sanctity of the Holy Father John Paul II, we can say that the posthumous trial of the facts he was wrong not to stop in time such a movement. Exactly as in the past, several other of his predecessors, including Saints Popes Gregory and Leo the Great, They have also made their good errors in certain assessments and in certain pastoral choices, without this compromise either their holiness nor meritorious title of Magna that both was conferred by the Holy Church.


Seguitino therefore members of the Neocatechumenal Way to affirm their followers or during their proselytism, to be grown and have multiplied under the pontificates of two Santi Pontefici and being by them, they say, approved in all respects. And while they continue to affirm them or to convince these colossal untruths to their followers, I remain with all the recognized freedom of the children of God who joined the little bit of theological science leads me to say that I possess, then to replicate, that such a claim is simply absurd, but just abhorrent.





The Neocatechumenal were able to develop because they are placed in the period of the post-council during which it developed within the Church is a crisis of unprecedented historical authorities, and at the same time, failing authority, They have developed forms of arbitrary authoritarianism why they were formerly known. This is the ecclesial and ecclesiastical land on which develops and takes life in complete impunity a lay peppered movement of heresies, with a vision totally distorted and falsante priesthood, combined with the Holy Eucharist conception that has repeatedly flirted in many of their celebrations - widely and rigorously documented -, The real sacrilege.


How can it have happened that the Holy Father John Paul II He has fallen into the trap of the founders of the Neocatechumenal Way? It is a question which I have often responded by explaining that the Lords Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández has recognized a considerable abilities. It has been in a very skillful way that they have presented to the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II what he held dear: family and sexual morality. So things are no easier pain of denial: in a Europe increasingly secularized and hedonistic, they have presented to the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II families with high fertility, as well as on solid moral principles, at least in appearance. And just like in the images of an old advertisement of multinational Barilla, Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández presented the so-called perfect, happy family of The Mulino Bianco [cf. video WHO]. And the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II fell for, without jeopardizing in any way nor the heroic virtues nor its sanctity, for the reasons already explained in a clear and detailed: Saints are saints, but men are not perfect nor free from errors, including sometimes even blunders.





The Neocatechumenal Movement is a true paradigm than it is the return to the modernity of the oldest heresies. The proselytizing Neocatechumenal, all it focused on targeted catechesis to the rediscovery of baptism, He reported on the scene of our times what was once the ancient heresy of the Cathars, which developed modulating another heresy, that of the Cathars. We recall in this regard that the Albigensian heresy spread in France between the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The speakers of this current invited their followers to a Christian initiation stretched toward a goal indicated by them as consolamentum, a very similar doctrine to that of neocatecumenato, aimed at the rediscovery of baptism. The Cathars were notoriously arrogant both porgersi that in proselytizing, but mostly they used to pose as the elect among the elect or the purest of the pure, not by chance, as I said before, take the moves by the Cathars, whose name derives from the greek clean, which means "pure". Especially insulting was then their attitude towards Ministers in sacris, Bishops and priests, before which the laity placed themselves in ways often arrogant feeling invested with special graces and spiritual gifts through the authentic rediscovery of their Baptism. the Albigensian, at a time when either one was out or was inside without much middle ground, they ended up creating a parallel church, with all that in conflicts and wars ensued logical consequence, given that at the time could not exist together within the Church opposites and opposites, thesis and antithesis. The whole as opposed to today, where in order to keep within the Church of all and more, in a communion that is not communion but only an illusion of communion, on the one hand we have communities that celebrate the Eucharistic Sacrifice with the Missal of St. Pius V and the other the Neocatechumenal who make the liturgy of the Holy Eucharist and what they want, up to turn it into a joyful and dancing commemoration flavor Calvinist, Jewish symbolism with exotic to say the least out of place, as if the Mass were a cross between Calvin's dinner and order of Pesach [The Pesach Seder, Dinner Passover]. E chi, before all this, painfully it tends to justify saying that within the Church have always lived together events and different expressions, It confuses what is the precious diversity - for example that represented over the centuries by the various expressions and forms of religious or spiritual life - with what instead is the lack of oversight and accountability on the part of ecclesiastical authority, by divine mandate, They are called to protect the unit "one Lord, one faith, one baptism " [If the 4, 5], not to permit and encourage the spread in the silence of the wild personalities that, as in the case of the Neocatechumenal, when they touch the sacred Eucharistic liturgy, which it is the heart and center of unity of the whole universal Church, they end up submitting the universality of those particularities that in fact always come out as highly arrogant and egocentric personality.


The liturgical celebrations of the Neocatechumenal Way swarm of the worst abuses, enough to remember how many times the Holy See has called the founders of the Movement about the problem of sermons preached by laymen during Mass, the dances of the faithful during the liturgy, to insist on receiving Holy Communion sat hand in hand rubbing the big Copponi happy with the Precious Blood of Christ. To follow with the pack of bread for the Eucharist according to the meticulous standards established by Kiko Argüello, the total disregard for the dispersal of fragments consecrated Eucharistic bread, the inadequate purification of the sacred vessels, but above the desired and taught lack of eucharistic devotion, the refusal to genuflect and lack of de facto institutionalized piety towards the Blessed Sacrament.


A proof of bad faith objective the leaders of the Neocatechumenal Way - and in the case now will report their official spokesman -, suffice it to say that every time that the founders were called in Rome and repeatedly rebuked by the then Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Cardinal Francis Arinze, from Rome are back more and running the following proclamation to their followers: "The Holy See has approved us!». Now, when you are called to be invited to get in line, as it happened when he was granted a precise given time to adjust to all the liturgical rules of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and education Sacramentum but for the whole answer instead of saying “They have lovingly called”, news spreads among the adepts, "we have been approved!», It is obvious: or it is completely cleaved from the actual, or you are dishonest and liars. In this regard it would be important to read a letter from the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments that, clearly and also peremptory, uses the expression unequivocal: "I have to inform the Holy Father's decisions'. After that, As soon as the leaders of the Neocatechumenal Way [full text, WHO], as their use and practice did pass a recall and a decision of the Supreme Pontiff for approval to all their liturgical and doctrinal oddities, at that point, Prefect, I weighed in by releasing an interview to Vatican Radio that could not be misunderstood even by an experienced professional forger [all texts since outlined above are contained, WHO].


From the foregoing we understand well how complex the problem Neocatechumenal, all in the face of any analysis that aims to be really polished and impartial. Complexity that truly require lengthy, detailed treatises on the historical level, ecclesiological, pastoral, doctrinal and theological. Not to mention the psychological aspect, place that is not at all difficult to ascertain and demonstrate that a high number of followers are people burdened by considerable weakness and fragility of character, often suffering from the bitterness of existential failures have not been processed and passed, then he tended to seek security in seemingly strong structures and imbued in them a sense of divine election. And, all this, as specialists can try to strictly scientific level, It is typical of these aggregation-known phenomenon in clinical psychology as a psycho-sects.





If today the Church finds himself visible for years to have to deal with scandals of moral and patrimonial nature, this is due to the fact that for many years did not listen to the cry of pain of the victims; on the contrary, in many cases the victims were severely punished by the Church authorities not only for daring to suffer, but for daring to finally make public their grief and seek justice against the powerful bullies insidiatisi to power in the visible Church which today appears as a veritable structure of sin what kind of sin within itself and releases it outside. If certain orders, religious congregations or historical West Abbeys, now they collapsed, the fault is precisely those that Ecclesiastical Authority received complaints for years, complaints and reports, They have not listened, indeed they have accused several times of revenge and prevention both priests, both former religious and laity who dared bring serious facts to their attention. Today, those complaints yesterday burying, dares to appear before the cameras and the microphones of journalists called to affirm falsely Vaticanists: "We did not know, We never imagined!». At that point - and their terrible shame, but above all to the detriment of their own immortal souls - these so-called journalists Vaticanists, that the facts and the pain of the victims know him rather well and for a long time, offer without shame and without any sense of shame at the podium justificatory these true murderers of the Holy Church. Well know, these so-called journalists Vaticanists, that their offense has a specific name: collusion with manslaughter.


The ecclesiastical authority, or the little that it remains on the ruins of the sense of now completely destroyed authorities for decades, even in the case of the Neocatechumenal it has applied the same principle limited to brand as "spiteful" and "biased" all those who by this movement came out after terrible experiences also, for example, after being invaded and investigated up to the deepest of their minds from the various mega-catechists, several of which are responsible for the destruction of entire families; e chi, among us priests welcomed, collected and repeatedly tried to heal the wounds of entire families, certain dynamics has got to experience them well and thoroughly, in what in reality is the emergency room of what some like to show today as "church field hospital"; an emergency room where to pick up the wounded we concretely us, not the hallowed halls of the ideologues.


While anything that occurred rare cases of this kind, including individuals and families coming out of the Neocatechumenal Way they have lost homes and jobs, not to mention the separation instigated pairs, during those numerous and large gatherings that were nothing more than public numerical strength tests by the founders of the Movement, the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II were presented armies of husbands and wives who do not yet smiling thirties had already given birth to three or four children per family;, Catholic model advertising format de The Mulino Bianco, He is missing only the Spanish actor Antonio Banderas in one of these famous spot converses with hen Rosita [cf. video WHO].


Without all of these premises due, my theological and doctrinal discourse can take now start. The first point that should be examined carefully in fact, is as follows: the Neocatechumenal Way, It can truly be called a Catholic lay movement? If Catholic doctrine and theology are not a vague opinion entirely moot, I must say no, stating with extreme concern and displeasure that the Neocatechumenate is in fact a community of Jewish-Protestant matrix that has a Catholic only the outer casing totally emptied its own internal ones that are the same basic elements of Catholicism. That is easy to say what: postpone, between a futile appeal and the other followed one another over the years, waiting for the things you put in place by themselves, no one should take responsibility, what is more painful and especially unpopular, denotes and gives evidence of the dangerous recklessness of our Ecclesiastical Authority and many diocesan bishops, many of whom have left in the hands of this movement the majority of the parishes in their dioceses, replicating every alarmed perplexity posed by their parish priests with a phrase that never should appear on the mouth of a bishop: "... I have already found them settled and branched, what ever I could do?». Add another: in several Italian dioceses, if you are not Neocatechumenal, you have no chance to gain access to the permanent diaconate, because for years the selection of future deacons and the assessment of their suitability has been fully delegated to the members of this Movement, all in the total number of diocesan bishops complicit silence.





The Neocatechumenal leaders lie - I fear unfortunately aware of lying - when you have such a movement recognized in every way by the Holy See in its expressions and actions. This is entirely false. As I explained earlier, the leaders of the Neocatechumenal Way have been trying for years to get from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments the seal of approval on all their serious liturgical abuses. The competent department has, however, never recognized certain arbitrary ways, and quite stubborn to celebrate the Holy Eucharist, which it is not a disposable good on which could decide the founders of the Neocatechumenal Way or the "employees priests" by the neocatecumenalizzati; anything, this Sacred Congregation has repeatedly them and also severely reprimanded urging them to respect the laws and of the liturgical books.


Therefore truth, the proven and the acts of the Holy See, but silenced by those within the Movement proselytizing or drive affiliates, is that after extensive consultation with the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, the Pontifical Council for the Laity approved before the Constitution and then the Catechetical Directory both duly corrected, but you pay attention: never the Holy See, through the competent dicastery, It approved those that are in fact arbitrary and sometimes even sacrilegious rites of the Neocatechumenal. And note also that the Pontifical Council for the Laity, approving the statutes duly corrected, also he asked that they return all publications and mimeographed of the old statutes and the so-called tea towels of catechesis given to mega-catechists, so that they do not seguitassero to be the object of teaching. They enforced and respected all? The answer is: No! They hired a facade, with the official facade documents, with a Holy Mass facade when the bishops have a pastoral visit or when there are the Ecclesiastical Authority, except, however, continue to teach the doctrinal errors of all time and to celebrate with impudent arbitrariness Mass as they want and in unconsecrated space, including the Diocese of the Roman Pontiff, in which they hold about 90 metropolitan parishes of 332.


The decree of 20 January 2012 [cf. text, WHO], He has never approved the exotic liturgies and not of sacrilegious rarely the Neocatechumenal Way, as so false and fraudulent claiming instead go to neophytes and the numerous followers mega-catechists. A lack of approval due to the fact that certain celebrations are patently contrary to the laws of the Church and liturgical practices that the universal Church has codified the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and ordinances of the recognized and approved rites, Rite- Ambrosiano until Malabar Rite. Even despite, You never approved this kind of celebrations, continuing impunity in the movement and they continue to be celebrated appartatamente in salons and unconsecrated space. Therefore, the mega-catechists who spread falsehood and certain approvals that have never given to their liturgical abuses, one simply ask: show me the decree with which the Holy See, through its competent department, which it is the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, He recognizes and legitimizes as "ritual" celebrations made to your interior in violation of the dispositions of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal and the Instruction Sacramentum. While I, for my part, I shall show you the decree of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, which reiterates once again the Neocatechumenal:


"Your apostolic action intends to take place in the heart of the Church, in total harmony with her directives and in communion with the particular Churches in which you are going to operate making the most of the fullness of charisms that the Lord has awakened through the initiators of the Way " [cf. text, WHO].


What does it mean: "In total harmony with the directives of the Church"? There I explain the mega-catechists of the Neocatechumenal Way what it means, if you consider the manner in which careless and disobedient they continue undeterred to organize exotic Masses in private salons and in unconsecrated space, affirming and declaring with rare and mendacious impudence: "The Church has approved it!».


There is no "Rite Neocatechumenal" Church-approved, But they do exist - I repeat without fear of being wordy -: documents, letters, exhortations and various reminders to follow the liturgical norms of the universal Church. The Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, after having read out the decree of approval of the statutes correct, He addressed a precise speech at the "Staff" of the Neocatechumenal clarifying:


«[…] A little while ago I was reading the decree with which they are approved celebrations in the "Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way", that they are not strictly liturgical, but they are part of the itinerary of growth in faith. It is another element that shows you how the Church accompany you with care in a patient discernment, which includes your wealth, but also looks to the communion and harmony of the whole Corpus Church […] Precisely in order to facilitate the rapprochement to the richness of the sacramental life by people who have drifted away from the Church, or they have not received adequate training, Neocatechumenals can celebrate the Sunday Eucharist in the small community, after the first Vespers on Sunday, accordance with the provisions of the diocesan Bishop (cf. Statutes, art. 13 §2). But every Eucharistic celebration is an action of the one Christ together with his one Church and therefore essentially open to all those who belong to this His Church. This public character of the Holy Eucharist is expressed in the fact that every celebration of Holy Mass is ultimately directed by the Bishop as a member of the College of Bishops, responsible for a particular local church [cfr Conc. ecum. Vat. (II), Cost. dogmatic. Lumen Gentium, 26]. The celebration in small communities, regulated by the liturgical books, which should be followed faithfully, and with the peculiarity approved the Statutes of the Way, It has the task of helping those who are undergoing the Neocatechumenal itinerary to perceive the grace of being inserted in the saving mystery of Christ, which it makes possible a Christian witness also able to take on the traits of radicalism. At the same time, the progressive maturity in faith of the individual and the small community should facilitate their integration into the life of the great ecclesial community, that is in the liturgical celebration of the parish, in which and for which it implements the Neocatechumenate [cf. Statutes, art. 6], its ordinary form. But even when the path is important not to separate themselves from the parish community, precisely in the celebration of the Eucharist which is the true place of unity of all, where the Lord embraces us in the various states of our spiritual maturity and unites us in the bread which makes us one body [cf. 1 Color 10, 16with]» [full text, WHO].


With the delicacy that has always characterized, Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, addressing the "general staff" of the Neocatechumenal, was it not very clear? It was all right, but it was with all the clear pastoral meekness that was to him his, making its words addressed to people structurally permeated by a strong internal authoritarianism thereby totally ineffective. Persons to whom they give directives and precise orders and decided, ammantanti from all divine aura that emanates from the mega-catechist who speaks and acts invested by the fire of the Holy Spirit, and before which is not discussed, you run. This is the mistake of a fine mint how mild this was one of our previous Supreme Pontiff: offer insights to reason and then come to the obvious conclusions. All this, however, you can practice, and so also very effective, with those who live lowered into the real history of the universal Church and in that which is the essence contained in the encyclical the Holy Father John Paul II: Fides et ratio. Unfortunately instead, the Neocatechumenate, like other lay movements variously different but related, It is not structured on fides the A ratio, but on emotion and charisma, real or perceived, but the evidence shows unquestionably egocentric of its founder Kiko Argüello. Therefore, Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, He spoke to people a language that they do not know and therefore are not able to understand; and that no bad faith or lack of will, but for the kind of deformation that have received within that Movement, where everything revolves on emotions and control people through their emotional sphere. With those words the Venerable Pope Benedict XVI has said everything, But only to the ears of those who are able to understand, not to those who can not because it does not formed to incorporate. At this second kind of people, he has only given proof of weakness, in practice as if he had said: "I think in this way, on the contrary, Forgive me if you think so. But I respect you and appreciate you very much, You seguitate so you can do what you want and what you like ".


If we want to put it more clear yet we must add that at the time reigning Supreme Pontiff, spoke pastoral-curialese in the old farmers of the old-Agro Pontino who do not even know where to abide the rudiments of diplomatic sciences. Indeed, in the best pastoral-curialese, it first begins thanking and putting in a good light all the positives, and then, Gently sum and so always very pompous, in the continuation of the discourse we try to highlight the flaws and things that do not go. obsequious and devoted Question: from a speech now set, But facing the worthy and precious farmers who work with great dedication to the Agro-Pontine lands late nineteenth century, what do you think the Pope who remained, listeners? To understand what these people be left in such a pompous speech pastoral-curialese, just go around the various halls and unconsecrated space in which the Neocatechumenal - for example, in a territory such as Italian, where certainly no shortage of available churches of all styles and sizes - they continue undeterred to celebrate with their "rites" not the Eucharistic Sacrifice of the Mass, but the so-called messa kikiana, inserted in the context of a joyful agape fraterna, behind closed doors and with the rigorous exclusion of non-belonging to the Movement.


To understand who the Neocatechumenal to be as problematic subjects come to life, would simply be enough that the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI, writing that very delicate speech pastoral-curialese, he reminded himself an episode remained in the historical memory of the Roman Curia, because it was just a fact without historical precedent. The year was 1980 when the 2 November, the Pope visited the Roman parish of Canadian Martyrs. On that occasion the Neocatechumenal gave further proof of overbearing arrogance meeting the Pope in the crypt of the church after having excluded and left out all those belonging to other church groups. During the speech given by Pope it happened to Carmen Hernandez, co-founder with Arguello of the Neocatechumenal, more than once interrupted until contestargli reproachfully to have indicated the Neocatechumenate as a "movement". The Supreme Pontiff John Paul II, at a certain point he became irritated, and using a phrase of the Blessed Apostle Paul rebuked that emerita cheeky rude that purported to deal face to face the Roman Pontiff: "The silent woman!» [The Cor 14, 34]. Therefore, I believe that that is enough and is enough to wonder: what kind of effect believed to be able to achieve with its mildness and its pastoral-curialese Venerable Pope Benedict XVI, turning so meek and pompous people who had given evidence for years and years, very early days, not to possess a sense of proportion dictated by the basic rudiments of the common good Catholic sense?


The ecclesiastical authority, or the little that it remains on the ruins of the sense of now completely destroyed authorities for decades, It should know that the Holy Eucharist for the Neocatechumenate is considered essentially a joyous fraternal banquet. What does this even due to Lutheranism but to Calvinism. In addition to, i Neocatecumenali, even limited to reject the concept and the teaching that the Eucharist is a true sacrifice, because they do not hesitate to teach that the belief that the Eucharist is a sacrifice, It would be something pagan and unchristian. Neither the founders of the Neocatechumenal Way or the mega-catechists interested in anything the teaching of the Council of Trent that to save Christi fideles Protestant heresy sanctioned as a dogma of faith that the Sacrifice of the Mass contains a propitiatory element [Enchiridion Denzinger-Schönmetzer, No.. 1743, 1753, sex. XXII] and that it was wanted and commanded by Christ the Lord. The Eucharist is thus a joyous commemoration, but a propitiatory sacrifice offered for both the living and the dead. The Sacrifice of the Mass is not the repetition of the bloody sacrifice of the Cross, but it is the one sacrifice of Christ made present under sacramental signs, It not surprisingly is used to always define the term "bloodless sacrifice".





A movement which in fact is burdened by many doctrinal errors, with a perception of sacramental often resulted in true heresy, animated by an incorrect ecclesial vision that can make it much more like a sect, where the same Founders have placed the emotional element and the emotional element transmission at the center of subjective experience and group, using the same emotions to control followers, may be acquitted because within it there are many good people, or because many individuals claim that thanks to the Camino have returned to the Church or converted? Well, I myself can testify to have made so many individuals and entire families animated by sincere Christian sentiments, but this does not free, however, the Neocatechumenal Way or doctrinal error nor sectarianism and especially by the various "heresies return" and the history of the Church have been dusted off and modulated, then reported to the fore, the catechesis of Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández. In this regard, I invite you to read the prophetic analysis made in 1983 the Servant of God Pier Carlo Landucci [available in this file, WHO].


Again we proceed with examples: Medjugorje, in thirty years, according to what I said a very large number of individual witnesses, There would have been many more spiritual healings and conversions instead of how many you will not have been in Fatima over a whole century. Question to say the least relevant: because the Church has never recognized as authentic the Medjugorje phenomenon and data messages from Madam a continuous stream for a few decades in the seers when self-styled, whereas recognized as genuine the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima, recognizing the authenticity of the messages given to the three shepherd, two of which were first beatified and then canonized? Does this mean that the numerous conversions and spiritual healings in Medjugorje in three decades are not authentic, while are those that occurred in certainly much fewer in Fatima over a whole century?


If someone wants to know what I think in this regard - given that my free thinking can not and should not have any weight, given that what is true and authentic can only establish the Church, not the personalism of some individual priests, including the Director of Radio Maria - I can answer that I believe in the authenticity of both conversions and spiritual healing, because the grace of God, if there is to retrieve a soul, It is able to make use of authentic Madonna as a false Madonna. Wishing I can even add that by a false Madonna, God's grace, It could also operate the most difficult spiritual healing. The grace of God can indeed everything, but really everything and in every sense. The grace of God, to save a soul, It could use even Satan himself while he worked to try to be able to condemn this soul forever. God alone, indeed, It can also be availed of Satan to turn in the highest saving good work of the supreme evil targeted to damn the souls. A concrete example: we have many painful and poignant testimonies of people who have long been devoted to Satanism and the occult, and which during the execution of these rituals have warned Mephistopheles suddenly something inside themselves, and at that point their consciousness totally asleep hath awakened, to the point that a few days later, weeping and afflicted, They were kneeling before a confessor to implore the grace and forgiveness of God. Having clarified this lends itself toaution to the fact that only God can use what is bad or wrong doctrinally in order to change evil into good and to conduct the erroneous doctrine of the real saving truth, we can not go to embrace evil or doctrinal error thinking of being able to obtain good; and this should be very clear to any believer who has learned the basic rudiments of catechism as a child preparing for First Communion.


Drawing from my experience as a confessor, every time I happen to narrate much suffering figure of a young homosexual who in my humble opinion it was a true angel of God on this earth. In him was really profound suffering, not at all due to those human guilt to defeat with a proper psychoanalysis conducted by a psychoanalyst Freud's atheistic, supporter gender and movements LBGT. In this young, there was a real and authentic sense of sin. On the one hand, He suffered the attraction towards people of the same sex, who would not want to have, the other could not control. Speaking to me of his situation poses some really terrible questions in their existential drama:


"Why did God allow this to me? If I had been suffering from a malignant tumor would have accepted with much more ease that deadly disease, and I would have suffered much less, instead, having to accept this my grave moral disorder, and this devastating spiritual sickness, He brings me the much stronger suffering. Indeed, while a sick person feels such and often ends up accepting their illness, instead I'm not sick but who are suffering from a grave moral disorder, I do not feel sick in the body, Why not have it, But I feel dirty soul, something far worse than any physical illness'.


Such a person could have been easily lead to hold a keynote at the Higher Institute of Moral Theology Academy Alfonsiana, so much better than many teachers might explain the concept of sin and the profound pain and sometimes excruciating that pervades the sinner, this thing that, I repeat, It is quite different from the human and simple guilt, because God wants our sincere repentance from sin, He does not want our guilt before the sin.


From my confessor No one could why God, in a young man so beautiful, intelligent, sensible, intellectually gifted, coming from a good family and social context, he could afford it, with all the deep pain that went with it, and that, When he had to tell me the person concerned: "It burns inside me like an unquenchable flame that never goes out". One time, after confession, I explained that for a sinner like me, perform an Angel, It was an extraordinary lesson of Christian life. I added:


"While maybe I'll do me a long Purgatory and I'll have to answer to God for who knows how many sins, but not perceived as such and time from my consciousness that instead she felt in perfect order, you will be in Paradise, where I hope you will pray for the repose of my soul. And a day, When in eternal life you will find yourself face to face with God, surely the Divine Majesty will show you one by one all the souls in Purgatory with the offer of your grief you saved from eternal damnation; and these souls will bow before you in thanksgiving ".


In this account I have said that homosexuality is all well and good, nor I stated that homosexuality happily practiced is a very effective means to reach the blissful reward of eternal life; I said - and again I repeat - that God's grace can also make use of a grave moral disorder situation to redeem a soul, and along with it wash, with deep sorrow of this man, even the sin of many other sinners, because in this kind of pain experienced as a Christian he has lived this young, take over the elements of the redemption and salvation enclosed in Encyclical saving Passion the Holy Father Giovanni Paolo II.


All this can be applied as a response to certain questions regarding the Neocatechumenal Way that as a pastor in the care of souls, and as a theologian I have never suggested to any faithful or as a way of redemption or as a way to salvation, indeed I have always recommended so very decisive, explaining that it is an experience full of grave doctrinal errors and serious liturgical abuses still committed in total disregard of the provisions and ordered by the Holy See. But if God decides to save a soul, if necessary, it is able to also make use of Satan himself, strappandogliela from the clutches just as the Principe of this world was going to be able to dannarla forever. But I do think you can run happy and joyful with arms wide open to Satan, to his works and all his empty promises, convinced to achieve thereby the salvation of his soul, because there is nothing worse than to challenge the grace and mercy of God. A little 'as the ones you are saying: "Father, she pray for me because I have no time or to go to church or to pray ". Several times I have responded: "You'll see what will happen then when God tells you: "Now I have more time to save!”». However instead, there Neocatecumenali, the good faith of the largest fund most of whom would never dare discuss, you can blame bad to celebrate the liturgies, not to follow the liturgical norms, It might even scold the evil and pray with the serious risk of not praying in perfect communion with the Church whenever you make personalistic liturgy, so unstable and separated from its universal ecclesial dimension. But you can hardly blame them not to pray with a sincere spirit, all because, since I am a priest of Christ formed as Holy Mother Church commands and not instead of being a mega-catechist without any real training and historical culture, philosophical and theological, I am well aware that no one can judge the deep consciousness of man, that only God can know; and nobody can, nor ever has to invade, this consciousness. Unheard and serious invasions of consciences do not do it the priests of Christ formats such as Holy Mother Church commands, to make the so-called practice kikos, better known as mega-catechists, before which the Ecclesiastical Authority followed silenced merely periodic bestow pull ears during the various papal audiences, beginning to produce only result that those reproaches in one ear and entering the other shoot out immediately.


To those who have no time to pray and attend church life sacramental and we can add as conclusive as those people who boast of their sin, and indeed there is nothing worse than that of proud of his sin: "…Eh, Father expensive, What can I do, I have great sex, I have always liked women, My wife now has his years, and I have to look for fresh meat '. These individuals believe they have the exclusive world of manhood among the faithful husbands of this world - many of whom could bringing this as they say even a lot bigger and far more durable than their -, I instead replied: "I can guarantee you that you too like you a lot, indeed know that the Devil like you very much, and in due time your merry adulterous coitus with "fresh meat" you reward them eternally in Hell, because nothing is more pleasing to Satan man who glories in his own sin, even before those to whom Christ has given a mandate to forgive sins [cf. LC 24, 45-48; GV 20, 21-23]». And this is obvious: a man who lives his life in this way and that for various reasons were to approach any community Neocatechumenal, It would not only be invited to conversion and salvation of one's soul, but they would try in every way to help him, and in some cases they may even succeed, on the contrary: in many cases they were able to retrieve people who lived morally disastrous lives. And what has been accomplished and achieved, so commendable and meritorious, not only by the sect of the Neocatechumenal, but also from many other sects that consider the Catholic Church a aggregation that since the time post-Constantine would betray the true and authentic message of the Holy Gospel, as they taught Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández and how they continue to teach undeterred in closed rooms initiation of many mega-catechists, that from the heretical sects of Christian matrix took evident and ample food.


In Way there are catechetical exhibitions that follow the criticisms to the Catholic Church by Jehovah's Witnesses and the same published on several occasions in their international magazine translated into twenty languages ​​and distributed worldwide:


"Historical facts reveal the truth about the" greatness "of Constantine. Far from having been founded by Jesus Christ, the Head of the true Christian congregation, Christianity is partly the result of political expediency and skillful maneuvering of a pagan emperor. Quite appropriately the historian Paul Johnson asks: "It was the empire to surrender to Christianity, or Christianity was prostitution empire?"All those who truly wish to follow the pure Christianity can be helped to recognize the true Christian congregation today, and to associate with it. Worldwide, Jehovah's Witnesses are more than happy to help sincere people to identify the true Christianity and to worship God in the way that he likes " [The Watchtower, fourth year 1998, See full text, WHO].


Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández have "formed" generations of mega-catechists teaching in a similar way that the whole structure, practice and ecclesiastical liturgy have been distorted and biased between the third and fourth centuries century after the peace of Constantine, when the political power, needing a religion as a socio-political glue, He encouraged the entry of large masses in the Church, which it was filled with symbols and pagan rituals that caused him to lose the authentic vitality of faith of the 'early Church'. Thus, after "the almost total immobility determined by the Council of Trent" which was surpassed only about five centuries later by the Vatican Council II, He was launched the "rediscovery" of the "true origins" through the work and teaching of the Neocatechumenal Way. In their various catechesis debut - but not only in those of debut -, Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way did not hesitate to be ironic that, since Constantine to follow, the Holy Spirit "was closed in the bottle for centuries", this is to say for the beauty of sixteen centuries, not until the bottle was uncorked by their subjective, wrong and especially heretical idea distorted and falsante of Vatican Council II.


These serious heresies are extended so devastating to the Most Holy Eucharist, which it is the heartbeat of the Church; and we know what happens, When a body is struck at the heart. Yet they have done so for many years, teaching and transmitting these serious heresies integer staff mega-catechists in the crypt of the parish of Canadian Martyrs:


"The sacrificial ideas have entered the Eucharist to condescendingly suggested by the historical moment the pagan mentality; instead of the Death God of the religions that you move just gives you a blow on the head, we discover the God of Jesus Christ; maybe God needs the blood of his Son to subside? What kind of God we did? We came to think that God appeased his anger in the sacrifice of his Son in the manner of pagan deities!» [Comments on documented catechesis of Kiko Arguello by Pier Carlo Landucci and reported in his article 1983, See full text, WHO].


The various heretical movements of Christian roots, beyond their grave doctrinal errors, They can do good? Of course yes. Great good works were in fact carried out for the benefit of individuals and families from the sect of the Mormons, the sect of Pentecostals, by the numerous sects that come to life by diverse and fragmented world of Protestantism, many of which have saved people from alcoholism, from drugs, a life marked on crime or a life built on the worst moral disorders. And maybe, the day when God - after giving us right after death his immediate trial - when it finally judge the living and the dead, recognize these heretics greatest merits of those who recognize not to many Catholics that the truth and the unique and authentic Church, the willed and founded by Christ the Lord, they did however terrible havoc:


"And Jesus said to them,: "Truly I tell you: The tax collectors and the prostitutes are entering the kingdom of God. Is John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe; the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him instead. You, on the contrary, though she had seen these things, you do not even repent and believe him "» [Mt 21, 31-32].


To the many who repeatedly told me "The Neocatechumenal there is so much of the good ', "Thanks to the Neocatechumenal Way I converted", "Thanks to the Neocatechumenal Way have returned to the faith after twenty years since I entered more into the churches", I think I have responded by explaining that all these are subjective experiences related in the report, much of inscrutable God working man through his divine grace. The numerous and recognized positive subjective experiences, But do not cancel by this movement who are sectarian attitudes, stubbornness to celebrate liturgies do not conform to the liturgical books of the Church, nor they erased by many heresies catechesis series, serious or sometimes coarse that they emerge from the mouths of their mega-catechists. Neither subjective positive elements can erase the fact that, when Neocatechumenal ranging mission, do not go there at all to evangelize as we should, but neocatecumenalizzare and announce the "sacred word" of the false prophet and the bad teacher Kiko Argüello. And that's a fact, It is not a malevolent supposition, are exhaustive testing many bishops, or even some whole episcopal conferences around the world have been expelled from their dioceses Movement, following the divisions created among the faithful by mega-animated missionary catechists from contemptuous disregard of pastoral directives given by the local bishops, If such a blatant way was that of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Japan also ordered the closing of the seminar mother of The Redeemer opened in the Diocese of Takamatsu [cf. report available, WHO]. So how many times, other bishops, They refused to ordain priests formats seminarians in seminaries of the Neocatechumenal Way, including the Primate of the Catholic Church of England, Cardinale Basil Hume, in that 1996 He refused to order priests fifteen seminarians trained in the workshop of the Movement, giving the following clear motivation for its refusal:


"These seminarians, once they would have ranked as a reference point, more than its own bishop, the leaders of their communities, thus creating problems within the diocese ".


Many were the bishops in Italy very critical in the past that have not allowed the movement to gain a foothold in their dioceses, among many cite only the Archbishop of Milan, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, that he declared "not to share the fact that the Neocatechumenal led a liturgical life separate from that of the parish community" [Interview The Tablet, edition 29 October 1999]. Question: why the Supreme Ecclesiastical Authority have never given the fact that the Neocatechumenal Way was regarded with suspicion and found to be in non-positive way, by bishops of various parts of the world and especially belonging indistinctly to all the various currents? Using the terms entirely improper and not in accordance with the Church's vocabulary, such as the definitions "conservative" and "progressive", then ask ourselves with all due concern of the case: because of such short-sighted lack of prudent and lucid critical sense, the supreme authority of the Holy See did not take into account the fact that this movement was misunderstood and judged either by a "conservative" man and abiding tradition as Cardinal Giuseppe Siri, Archbishop of Genoa, both by a figure known to be highly "progressive" like that of Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini Archbishop of Milan? Why Is That, in this Church who for five decades of blabbering proclaims himself "collegiality" and "collegiality", It was not taken into account that this movement was frowned upon since its inception by the majority of Italian bishops, who for many years, from various parts of the world, They came harsh protests from many bishops complained that the competent offices of the Holy See breaking actions, the personalities unacceptable, the lack of respect and pedagogical touch with the cultures of local people, but above all the great arrogance of these "chosen among the chosen" against the bishops and local clergy?


Those have just narrated thus far are made, little worth that mega-catechists justify everything accusing some bishops of being "closed to the Spirit", severe judgment which by the way does not compete with any Mr. Lay, which has neither the authority nor the necessary grace was to judge so severely for those who grace the sacrament has received the fullness of the apostolic priesthood, and visibly embodying for this, in his particular Church, the figure of Christ the Good Shepherd who holds all the living members of the ecclesial body.





To the Founders of this movement and their mega-catechists, They should have been imposed as a thorough study, a formative level, various documents of the supreme Magisterium, including the encyclical Faith and Reason the Holy Father Giovanni Paolo II, because in a few steps, this text, indicates implicitly condemns so severe - obviously talking to all and without appeal to those directly affected - one of the basic errors which is the same structural basis of the Neocatechumenal, just read this one passage in which the Holy Pontiff says:


"They do not even miss the dangerous folds fideism, that does not recognize the importance of rational knowledge and philosophical discourse for the understanding of faith, indeed for the very possibility of belief in God. One currently widespread fideistic of this trend is the "Biblicism", which tends to make the reading of Scripture or its exegesis the only point of reference truthful. It so happens that identifies the word of God with the Holy Scriptures alone, thus negating the doctrine of the Church that the Second Vatican Council explicitly confirmed […] Other modes of latent fideism appear in the scant consideration accorded to speculative theology, and in disdain for the classical philosophy, which the terms of both the understanding of faith and the actual formulation of dogma have drawn on their terms " [Faith and Reason, n. 55]


A people "washed" and "grown" in sectarian forms of authoritarianism, to which the mega-catechists are imposed in practice of very invasive way and very authoritarian, based on the irrational and sull'emotivo, ie the worst principles of fideism a-critical and irrational, It is useless to offer gentle reminders loving destined to exert a unique effect: give the full impression that the Church visible and that the Ecclesiastical Authority are weak, thus legitimizing the Neocatechumenal to continue to do what they want and how they want. It is in this way that for half a century now, the visible Church and the Ecclesiastical Authority have seriously wrong with the Neocatechumenal: not frenandoli and not putting them in a row from the start. And this was a serious error is attributable to the Holy Pontiff Paul VI, both the Holy Father John Paul II. The Venerable Pope Benedict XVI and his successor Francesco I have just inherited - particularly the reigning Supreme Pontiff - a situation should develop in their two predecessors Saints until the true apotheosis of unwieldiness, place the Neocatechumenal was not only allowed to take root in hundreds of dioceses in the world, but what it is worse to open more than one hundred seminars, purpose of which it is to form Priests modeled on liturgical and doctrinal eccentricities of the Way, at the service of the Way did not diocesan bishops.


So I have explained in depth the complete uselessness the famous speech made by the Neocatechumenal Venerable Pope Benedict XVI 2012, When pointed out that the Church, through the Pontifical Council for the Laity, He approved the statutes of the duly corrected by the Holy See Movement, but not at all approve of their liturgical antics through the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, or through the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith approved in any way the unabated continuation of their catechesis heterodox. So, while the Pope played a loving and gentle foil, the greater of the state kikos He drove down throughout, but just about everything, the seal of the total approval of the Holy See, including liturgical abuses institutionalized, not the centrality of the mystery and the intense Eucharistic worship first and foremost as a bloodless sacrifice of the Passion of Christ is renewed in the memorial altar, heresies spread by mega-catechists and last but not least the formation of seminarians in which have large incidence of secular figures, Armed often of poor or sometimes worse wrong Catholic education, up in defiance to the fact that to form a future priest, practices are needed only ever only other priests of proven faith, spiritual maturity and upright conduct of life.


May the Divine Mercy then saved from the holy wrath of God all those bishops who continue to consecrate priests seminarians seminars mother of The Redeemer, He is hiding behind the finger of "... and what can I do?», although aware of creating an army of priests instructed to pay allegiance to the Movement, to support the Movement, to spread the Movement, to proselytize for the Movement, to encourage the wrong perception of the priesthood and the confusion between the common priesthood and the ministerial priesthood, instilling in these seminarians incorrect liturgical practices and erroneous doctrinal practices that still pervade and characterize the Neocatechumenal Movement.


I do not even open the long, complex and painful speech than today, Holy Mother Church, tends to be very little loving and merciful to those suffering from the terrible filth poured upon the Holy Bride of Christ; or at the Holy Mother Church has reversed severity, hardness and shunned all sorts of those who have tried to defend the truth from error, for example pointing out that it is our mission on the straight divine appointment by the always accoglier the repentant sinner, especially when sins are particularly serious, being right in the soul these sick who need a physician [cf. Mt 9, 12], because the Lord Christ came to earth to call them sinners, not the right [MC 2, 17]. Totally different - as it unfortunately is happening -, if unworthy shepherds, irresponsible and very dangerous, instead they put to accept not the sinner, but the sin, up to call sin "diversity that enriches" or so-called 'includenza element'.


While the general staff of the kikos and the host of the mega-catechists they continue to lie by passing all their liturgical abuses and their heterodoxies doctrinaire as approved by the Church, the Pope Francis I, since the first hearings in which he received them, He did not fail to reproach them for several times. From 2014 he drew the Neocatechumenal on three specific points. First of all, the clearly he stated:


«[…] sometimes it may be better not to live in all the details what your itinerary would demand, in order to ensure unity among the brothers who form the only ecclesial communities, which you must always feel part '.


Then he called them to respect local cultures towards which always, i Neocatecumenali, not only show little interest but sometimes even contempt, so much their closed sectarianism causes them to entrench and wherever impose liturgical aberrations, catechisms and their questionable Community:


«[…] from this springs the need for special attention to the cultural context in which families you go to work: it is an environment that is often very different from what you came from '.


Finally a clear reference what concerns the freedom of its followers, or to be more clear and correct their sectarian:


"The freedom of each must not be forced, and you must also respect the eventual choice of those who decide to seek, Way out, other forms of Christian life to help him grow in response to the Lord's call " [1February 2014, Audience to the families of Neucatecumenale Way, full text, WHO].


Needless to say that on this occasion, from the Chamber Paul VI, while before this clear and precise reproach, the state of greater Neocatecumenali, with their priests reduced to largely Ministers in sacris "Puppet" under the orders of the mega-lay catechists, They are gone out from the papal reiterating that hearing as ever: "The Church has approved it in every way!».


The Pope Francis I is a Jesuit education and it comes from a very specific socio-psychological context linked to the culture of a specific country in the Latin American Continent. Wanting to be clear again we could say that he belongs to a way of thinking and acting very specific to a particular social environment of Buenos Aires Capital. From this it follows that the Pope has for cultural and linguistic style a way of expression through which you usually treat the most serious problems, then launch then its most severe rebukes, just as with sweet air he makes use of jokes, like when during a meeting with the Neocatechumenal 2015 stated:


«[…] confirm your call, I support your mission and bless your charisma. I do this not because he [Ed. Kiko Argüello indicates] He paid me, No! I do it because I want to do ' [cf. 2 March 2015, full speech WHO, video WHO].


We analyze the phrase: Perhaps hath it has been a joke for its own sake? Of course not, anything! The Pope is well aware that the Neocatechumenal Way provides and manages huge sums of money, for which he could steal, species in certain mission areas, the whole diocese, where they have guaranteed: the financial support of the parishes, the opening and maintenance of a seminar, the livelihood of priests. All with a sad and obvious consequence: some dioceses today can not do without the Neocatechumenal, then bishops and pastors, like it or not they, They must obey the instructions issued by Kiko Argüello through the "armed wing" of his mega-catechists. This is the meaning of the bar of the Supreme Pontiff, who then uproar in 2018 adding that Christ the Lord:


"Send: "Go". It does not use half measures. It authorizes reduced trips or trips reimbursed, but he says to his disciples, to all his disciples one word: "Go!”» [cf. 5 May 2018, Holy Father's Address to Neocatechumenal, full text, WHO].


They will perhaps missed numerous apostolic nuncios of the Holy See various countries around the world, including those serving in the apostolic nunciature of poor countries, who informed the Supreme Pontiff to have seen come from Neocatechumenal families with many children in tow, who have spent a hundred thousand or two hundred thousand Euros only tickets for round-trip travel? Or that these zealous evangelizers are then returned home after a few months, with aura from great missionaries, without having learned to say, in that Asian or African language, even "hello" and "good evening"? Not to mention the living expenses, because when you are sectarians is also very intimate nature provincial, here then imported Italian food bought at a very high cost in international shops of the place, if not made by mail arriving from Italy, because without noodles or without coffee, or without the snacks of Italian companies for the kids, if you do not fall into a crisis of faith, it falls at least in food crisis. And things like that have been well documented by many apostolic nuncios of the Holy See's diplomatic service in various countries around the world, especially those of poor countries in Asia or Africa.


And while again rose the cry of ritual: "The Church has approved it!», someone, between duly "washed" in the brain by mega-catechists, only vaguely understood what the very serious and above all very severe told all of them the Supreme Pontiff with those words?





Also in earlier called speech of May 2018 the Supreme Pontiff, touching the spirit of mission and respect the culture of peoples, continues to warn in these terms the Neocatechumenals:


"Risen Jesus says: "Make disciples. This is the mission. Does not say: won, occupied, but "make disciples", that you share with others the gift you received, the love meeting that changed you life […] Do you love the culture and traditions of peoples, without applying pre-designed templates. Do not leave the theories and drawings, but from practical situations: so the Spirit will shape the announcement that its time and its ways. And the Church will grow in his image: united in its diversity of peoples, the gifts and charisms ".


On these words of the Pope we clarify another point: People send in so-called mission formed and deformed like the Neocatechumenal, and in a very special way in certain sensitive parts of the world, is equivalent to putting a drunken elephant walking inside a factory in which you create delicate glassware blown glass. Indeed, the Neocatechumenal personal delegate of the Holy Spirit and by the particularly inspired, It must first bring himself, but above all to impose himself.


Since this is a movement that lives permeated by fideism, and it benefited from a Holy Spirit that blows everything about them - and also how they want them -, They are far from having the humility to learn from the wise great missionary history of the Church and the large and well-established tradition of the ancient missionary religious orders. The so-called missionary Neucatecumenale, It has no need to engage in their own country of origin, if anything for a few years of careful and profound study, first of all to know the language, then uses, the customs and traditions of the country and the people to whom they will have to go far from fasting and naive, with all the problems and damage that it can cause otherwise. These are things that were in the sixteenth and seventeenth century missionaries of the antiquated and obtuse old Tridentine, when the Holy Spirit - according to the sacred word of Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández - had always "kept imprisoned in a sealed bottle», all since the time of Constantine Peace. Therefore, the first Jesuits trained personally by St. Ignatius of Loyola, before leaving for the missions they lost time studying languages ​​in Rome, the uses and customs of the ancient peoples of the East. What completely understandable, the reason why they lose precious time for the like: but because they were not filled with the Holy Spirit! They were not their, Jesuit missionaries formed by Ignatius Loyola, as it was at that time the great army of missionaries Dominicans and Franciscans who have entire continents evangelized. And, thanks to them, Today many large cities of the Americas New, still carry the names of their founders, or of the Blessed Virgin Mary which were particularly devout: San Francisco de Assisi, Santa Maria de Los Angeles, or the island of Santo Domingo de Guzmán and so to follow. Or maybe someone thinks that the American city of Corpus Christi, in the State of Texas, takes its name from the ancient traditions of the natives of the place?


The Neocatechumenal has everything: He has the Holy Spirit, so has not to learn from anyone. He did not learn from history, because he has a story, which it is the only story that could constitute valid reference point along with his emotion. Least of all have to learn the Catechism of the Catholic Church, because evangelization is made with the catechisms of the Movement. The consequences have been so disastrous, What they should know and understand very well and in all the details at the Congregation Propaganda Fide. Or to clarify, when Neocatechumenal, in various parts of the world, evangelized, the consequences were then these: when those newly baptized were later found in contact with other Catholic priests, with other Catholics, or when they approached other Catholic contexts, starting from liturgical celebrations, They have not recognized the "church" which had been converted and in which they had lived up to the first. And it's all to say the least understood: In fact, they had converted to Catholicism but not to Neocatecumenalesimo. That being said it is also clear that the Neocatechumenals, when they are distant from Rome and its neighboring regions, where while doing what they want, however, they feel under a certain control or at least below a certain minimum observation, when you are rather uncontrolled and totally in jeopardy in some mission countries, in that case they bring out the best of the worst of their doctrines and their individual liturgies and distorted almost frenzied. It follows then serious - as I said before -, the converts will not be placed before the universal dimension and therefore uniquely Catholic doctrine and liturgy which is you culmen background the life of the Church, but will be converted to Catholicism through liturgical abuses of Neocatecumenali rendered further serious by the fact that, lying at a distance from each possible control, they really gave the best of the worst that could give.


All this has been repeatedly reported over the years to the Holy See by numerous letters and reports, often accompanied by photographic documents and filmic, written by missionary bishops of the diocese who complained, often in very desperate tone, the devastating pseudo-missionary work put in place by these people, deploring forward to all that the Neocatechumenal purpose was not to baptize more people, but to 'convert' new followers to their movement. And many of these bishops, being in Rome visiting limina visit They took advantage to bring in person news, information and above all their complaints to the Holy See.


In this way we have allowed it to happen in modernity what serious has happened in antiquity in times when, different peoples of the North of Europe, when between the fourth and fifth centuries they began to convert to Christianity, in truth they converted instead to Arianism, because they were the Aryans first to bring, at those people, a corrupt Christian faith from heresy heresiarch Arius [Libya 256 – Constantinople 336].


Continuing the reference made by the Pope in May 2018, let's step back to touch another topic related to the activity of neocatecumenalizzatori missionaries in Russia, because before certain events may arise somewhat understandable suspicion, or so-called legitimate suspicion. It is in fact happened was that after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union, in Russia they have returned to life Catholics and the Catholic Church, all in a situation of extreme delicacy, which I am not allowed, as you should well understand, drunken elephants that move at walking inside a factory in which you create delicate glassware blown glass.


As a courtesy, Pope John Paul II, he was invited to Moscow by both Mikhail Gorbachev during his historic visit to the Vatican on 1 December 1989, is subsequently by Boris in Eltis 1991. Needless to say, never the Supreme Pontiff would irritate the Moscow Orthodox Patriarchate, he never failed to complain on several occasions the missionary impulse to Russia, that from the Catholic point of view was precisely missionary, while from different point of view of the Orthodox Church it was considered rather proselytizing action. And so, the highest leaders of the Orthodox Church, between the 1990 and the 2000 They complained about the arrival in the country of "some particularly intrusive Catholic groups and not respectful of the culture and religious traditions of the ancient Russian people". Intrusiveness rendered so by lack of respect and understanding, first performed without regard to the statements later by President Vladimir Putin: "Christianity embodied by the Orthodox Church is the root of the identity of the Russian people" [speech 23 July 2018]. It is not by chance, when he tried to fear again a possible trip of the reigning Pontiff in Russia, He died directly on the intention feared. Indeed, unlike his two predecessors, when President Vladimir Putin went on an official visit to the Roman Pontiff in 2013 and later in 2015, not formulated as its predecessors the invitation to the Pope to visit Russia, no meaning at all, like its predecessors, irritate the Moscow Orthodox Patriarchate. Note also that the President of the Russian Federal Republic came the first time in the Vatican, in 2013, with fifty minutes late, the second time, in 2015, with a delay of over an hour. And, as you should know - if there were more diplomatic of race - in diplomacy is measured around, Also the silent language of minutes late.


In view of the complaints of the Moscow Patriarchate tested reported, perhaps it is legitimate to ask: such as these would be "particularly intrusive Catholic groups and not respectful of the culture and religious traditions of the ancient Russian people"? Because of the various Catholic movements, what features of these special characteristics, the proof of facts would seem to be the one founded by Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández. Obviously we do not know who it was referring the generic complaints of the Moscow Patriarchate; But we know that the Neocatechumenal Way is present in Russia with its itinerant catechists from the early nineties of the twentieth century and that one of these catechists prominent was for twenty-five years Mrs. María Ascension Romero, that after the death Carmen Hernández took his place at the top of the leadership of the Movement [cf. WHO]..





A character of members of psycho-sects, is that of being induced to doze off completely every human and natural critical sense, Therefore every word is always distorted and rigor, then read and interpreted in favor and benefit of the sect. That's why specialists in psychiatric sciences who work to de-psychological programming of the people who have been deformed over time from various psycho-sects, the first thing they do is to destroy all their idols and especially invisible visible, with that mode of practice should always be authoritarian and aggressive, because only by creating states of shock it will be possible to induce gradually the former sectarians to reason. A job, this, that the specialists can confirm always it lasts many years; and it is said that the results can be, at the end, always positive.


The Neocatechumenal are the product of a misconstrued Spirit Spring, during which the visible Church has dangerously abuse the word "dialogue", soon turned into a dialogue at any cost and at any cost. Thus, even before serious errors and very dangerous, what mattered, It was not to separate the real from the fake or authentic doctrine from heresy, but dialogue ... dialogue … converse.


When the Holy Pontiff Paul VI finally he came to say: "With the Second Vatican Council we expected spring and instead came the winter", Unfortunately the damage was already done; and many of these damages, with the passage of time, They proved irreparable, when the Ecclesiastical Authority has continued unabated to talk ... talk ... talk ... And while the house on fire is now under the eyes of all, firemen do not intervene, perhaps believing the Church what little visible charitable and not merciful, extinguish with strong holy water gettiti that fire that is no longer "Satan in God's temple smoke" alluded to the Holy Pontiff Paul VI [speech 29 June 1972, original text, WHO]», because today, that smoke, It has changed in a fire.


that's how, Why and what are born Neocatechumenal, and that is why were able to move forward and become a true church within the Church. All this was made possible by the fall of the principle of authority in the Church, instead of which he was born: on the one hand authoritarianism of certain Authority Ecclesiastical acting in open defiance to all canonical laws applying the worst of their own free will, on the other hand they were born mega-catechists of the Neocatechumenal Way which have relegated the priest in the corner to make nodded his head while the mega-catechist spreads all sorts of heresy among the People of God.


Faith is also and not least culture, a demonstration of the production of the great Fathers and Doctors of the Church; the Holy Spirit illuminates the man with their gifts of God's grace through the wisdom and knowledge. The close and inseparable relationship between faith and culture is first demonstrated by the editors of the Holy Gospels and the Apostolic Letters. And if we want to talk about high inspiration of the Holy Spirit, in that case we can not take anthologies of heretical catechesis of the Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way, but many other kinds of texts, through them to explain what it really is divine inspiration. And because the password that runs always been among the Neocatechumenate is the cry of 'back to basics', Well let's go right to the apostolic origins to talk, starting right from them, the mystery of the Holy Spirit.


A human mind could possibly conceive, and an equally human hand could perhaps write, a work of faith as the Prologue to the Gospel of the Apostle John Beato? [cf. GV 1, 1-18]. And just as the human mind, and an equally human hand could possibly build in a few short lines the entire system Christological dogma set by the Blessed Apostle Paul in the opening of the Letter to the inhabitants of Colossi? [With the 1, 12-20]. Could the human mind and the human hand of the Blessed Apostle Paul write the Christological hymn contained in the Letter to the inhabitants of Philippi? [cf. Within 2, 6-11]. What other human mind could possibly conceive, and an equally human hand could perhaps write, work such as the Letter to the Hebrews?


We may follow up with many of the Fathers of the Church, always those of so-called "origins", from St. Irenaeus who planted solid roots of pneumatology doctrine with his first treatises on the Holy Spirit. We explained everything so we can come to tell you something that only totally devoid of understanding individuals can be denied: science, the knowledge and culture are an integral part of the mystery of faith, for as sure as that faith comes from the knowledge and certainly not from ignorance. The suffering from so-called invincible ignorance, may be admitted among the Anime Beate much earlier and much more than many wise, because of the purity of their hearts and their faith, at least according to the words spoken by the Blessed Virgin Mary in the song of Magnificat: "He has put down the mighty from their thrones, He has exalted the lowly ". But, at the same time, there instead of that fear seriously and so much to pray for those who, while suffering from invincible ignorance, manifesting anything but saving faith and purity of heart, not better to do than to despise the men of God to which the Divine Majesty has given special gifts of wisdom that brought them to mature science that guides Christi fideles the deepest mysteries along the path of faith.


Or rather clarify AGAIN: Catherine of Siena, a young illiterate illiterate, It became Santa, and he was later proclaimed a Doctor of the Church, because thanks to his humility, which it is the largest door opening to God's grace, the Holy Spirit has bestowed on her the most profound wisdom, even if he did not even read and write. That's why the Popes have not listened to the young Caterina Benincasa, now known as St. Catherine of Siena. They have instead listened to none Carmen Hernandez, equipped with a superb arrogance beyond any reasonable measure. In fact, as previously narrated, she interrupted several times the Successor of the Blessed Apostle Peter as he spoke. And the Roman Pontiff, Far from that listening lend lent by his predecessors to the Supreme young Sienese illiterate and illiterate, I scolded the words of the Apostle Paul Blessed: "The silent woman!». All this to return to repeat the measurement of the people we're talking about and the phenomenon generated by the same, within which they infused the worst vices and errors, unlike the Saints who have left imprinted in their works rather the sign of the fruits of God's grace, even in works, in religious orders and congregations subsequently forfeited.


In this regard it would be enough to think about what are the gifts of the Holy Spirit, that are not listed at random, but put in a precise order: wisdom, intellect, advice, fortress, science, pity, fear of God. Having said that we now turn to a brief catechesis to the mega-catechists of the Neocatechumenal Way of these wonderful gifts, because I think we have really needed.


We start from the gift of Wisdom which it is a real divine attribute infused by the Holy Spirit in man. It is in fact through the wisdom - as taught by St. Thomas Aquinas - which can be seen, therefore live supernatural things from God's point of view. Simply said that if there is no wisdom, the other gifts will not hold up, because they are inseparable from each other.


The gift It makes it possible to understand the truths of faith by opening the soul a complete vision of the reality of the divine dimension. Therefore, if faith is the adherence to the mystery of revelation, through the gift we can rise to much higher level of understanding; until reaching an understanding that is not only rational, but above all deeply intuitive.


The gift of counsel We could also indicate as "gift opening". Through the gifts of wisdom and intellect, It opens the mind to God and conscience to the man's tension with the right moral choices.


The gift of fortitude by itself is the negation of what may be the man governed by moodiness, by feelings and fatuous sentimentality, that drive one way and another outside of the divine mysteries, or the alteration of the mystery of revelation. Being strong does not mean being put up internally and externally not to be influenced by the instinct and emotion, It resisting so decided to internal and external errors that can suffocate civil society and the ecclesial community.


The gift of knowledge It is based on knowledge. To know we must, however, be docile and humble, because humility and docility to learning are the foundation of genuine science. Otherwise it reaches what today is called self-referentiality through the way of personalism, that egocentrism and that of the closure towards the outside and towards the other. Science, Christian Understanding, proceeds through the opening, which is then open to the action of the grace of God it manifested in this case by many saints and wise teachings masters.


The gift of piety It is the negation of what pietism that will take place in the seventeenth century by the Protestant pietism. Pity characterizes the believer's relationship with God and leads him to wish for himself and for others what God desires in the highest good, coming to such an intimacy of faith and love with the Creator to the point that the creature turns to him as "Father". From pity then it creates a feeling of deep affection and great respect for the man, which it reflects the mystery of God who made us in his image and likeness.


The gift of fear of God He has nothing to do with fear, on the contrary: It is the negation of all fears. This wonderful gift we can sum it up with a quote Christological Hymn of the little Blessed Apostle Paul called before: "In the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven, on earth and under the earth " [Within 2, 10].


After this short excursus you could start by the end saying for example that the Neocatechumenal, so stubborn and obtuse, following the erroneous teachings of their Founders and the "armed wing" of the mega-catechists, they abolished and prohibited genuflections and signs of adoration hiding these forms of their authentic and superb irreverence behind a vague theology kikiana the risen Christ, then of "being in the position" of the Risen.


Inside of of this movement the Holy Spirit, and his gifts, They are a cross between a magic wand and a wizard of the formula "Abra Cadabra»With which it is justified and makes up for the lack of institutionalized wisdom, intellect, advice, fortress, science, pity, fear of God.


We summarize it all with just one example: within this Movement, unlike many other lay movements, no swarming all people or culture or science. Nor could it be otherwise, view and considered the epic cultural and theological ignorance shown in the course of both their lives by their respective Founders. Here then is that the Neocatechumenal Way, a worthy person who has spent his entire life on the scaffold to make that useful and noble profession which is the mason, suddenly he descends from them, and with the appointment mega-catechist is invested with all the power of the Spirit. As if ever, St. Thomas Aquinas and many other holy Fathers and Doctors of the Church before and after him, He explained that the grace of the Holy Spirit perfects nature present in humans, but it does not replace all those that can be small or serious deficiencies that are present in that human nature, including the lack of intelligence and culture. That said, to worthy mason it is also necessary to add the element of human frustration associated for example at all times that with orders, sometimes with reproaches made during the execution of the work, some civil design engineer, rather than twenty years younger than him, She recalled him telling him what to do precise and exact manner in which he had to. Now, if the builder was careful not to move from protest to foreman Engineer, also carefully avoiding to invite other workers to do as he put it instead as the designer said, once you become mega-catechist of the Way does not, however scruple to move toughest disputes, or to stage real rebellions of the group led by him against a senior and experienced pastor. Or pouring scorn on a theologian who has decided to act strictly doctrinal and legal arguments to explain everything you need light of wisdom and knowledge that, by talk of mega-catechist, protruding dangerous heresies bagful infecting with serious errors adepts who were listening to him and following him.


Unfortunately there have been repeated cases in which this kind of mega-catechists, freshly fallen from the scaffolding or other more or less similar places, they began disrupting the bishop of the diocese while they spoke before their Christi fideles and affirming the presence of all: "I disagree, because I do not agree with what the bishop is saying ", which bishop was holding at a meeting on issues related to the economy of the diocese, But he was talking about specific subjects closely related to matters of doctrine and faith; topics for which the bishop, guardian of doctrine and faith in his particular Church, It is a sacrament of the supreme master of grace.


Needless to say: these people have always and reason practices because they refer to their idea kikiana of preaching [kerygma] but above all to the fact that the Holy Spirit speaks through them. And their personal Holy Spirit leads them not only severely lacking education to the Pastors of the Church, but if necessary would induce them even to scold, subtly wage war and despise the same Pastors of the Church who reject their serious errors, because their structural parallel is as follows: if waste me, waste the Holy Spirit.


Another feature of the psycho-seven has its own terminology, which serves as a part to unite the members of the so-called clan closed, the other, to isolate them from the outside. That said, I must say that the information that more reliable to me dates from High Prelates who over the years have had to deal with the founders of the Movement on behalf of the dicasteries of the Holy See, often with pain and they do not procacciandosi few humiliations, I was detailed that both, Kiko Arguello and Carmen Hernandez, are actually two "clumsy self-taught having a confused cultural smattering that came not even to be called average, but in fact and lower middle reasonably '. So, Kiko Argüello who likes to use some term magic greek effect, followed by equally Hebrew terms magic and impressive, just put under the eyes of a Holy Gospels text in greek and ask: "We do not pretend that she translates them there, we are content just to read four lines in greek ». After that, since he peppered "his" liturgies and "his" places of worship biblicismi bizarre and Jewish symbols, you could invite him to a synagogue and ask to the most excellent Doctor, Rabbi, extract between ספרים [Sepharim, Scrolls of the Law] un bel Torah [Sefer Torah, Roll of the Law] and ask it to the founder of the Neocatechumenal Way and the only simple reading of twelve words in Hebrew; just twelve, Twelve is also the Tribes of Israel. Of course: simply recited, without having to sing with meter Sephardic or Ashkenazi. Certain, it would be very nice if in a Jewish-Christian encounter good Arguello There deliziasse singing with his guitar יגדל אלוהים חי [The Thirteen Articles of Faith by Maimonides, video WHO], or the other beautiful hymn synagogue אֲדוֹן עוֹלָם [Hymn to the Lord of the Universe, video, WHO], if anything, with the meter of Sephardic song which arises precisely in its ספרד, namely Sefarad, the Iberian Peninsula. Not enough to cram with kikiano exotic spirit of the liturgy pseudo or quasi-Catholic of Jewish symbolism inopportune misplaced. Nor enough that people actually highly illiterate both in biblical sciences in the ancient traditions of rabbinic Judaism, during the Eucharistic celebrations is put to dance and fiddle 'Kshlom», «Dayenu"And so on. Therefore it is necessary, as well as consistent and serious, the Neocatechumenal, thirsty ancient Jewish origins and ancient apostolic origins, Prendano i arrangements [siddurim Jewish, prayer books] and campaigning on singing, articulating with the correct pronunciation synagogal songs from them inserted in the liturgies pseudo and para-Catholic, starting from this beautiful hymn:

Let it be noted that the Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way, since their first catechesis, have always treated with contempt the Tridentine liturgy celebrated in Latin. Both, educating their mega-catechists, the liturgy celebrated in Latin always given a false idea and especially grotesque, as explained in the seventies of the twentieth century in Rome in the crypt of the church of Canadian Martyrs the two samples in question stating that: "The People was passive and aloof, while the priest whispered a language unknown, while the old ladies mumbled the Rosary ". Nothing further from the truth, because even the most illiterate and illiterate people knew exactly what it meant: «the Lord be with you», «Lift up your hearts», «Behold the Lamb of God» … And while on the one hand, with historical ignorance really scary but typical of the two persons in question, It spreads the disregard for a liturgy through which, from the sixteenth to the twentieth century they have been evangelized, converted and baptized peoples of entire continents, Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way filled their liturgies personalistic, exotic and often sacrilegious, with symbolism and Hebrew words. Question: but if the people, and especially those from Latin strain languages ​​and cultures, they say they so difficult to understand the abstruse Latin, perhaps they are able to understand perfectly the ancient Biblical Hebrew? Not enough at all, take two or three words “exotic” and let people yell "Dayenu, Diane!», you have to take that song and sing it in full as it is according to the ancient tradition, because so should those who claim the return to the pure sources. Otherwise, the Neocatechumenal likely to make a much worse end of the "old ladies" on which the two ironizzavano their Founders, and instead of mumbling "Pray for us» e «Miserere nobis"The silence of the" Tridentine gloomy churches " who for sixteen centuries "they had closed and sealed the Holy Spirit in a bottle ', in the same way, on the contrary, in the very worst way, they are likely to scream and dance "Dayenu!», without being able, Hymn דַּיֵּנוּ [Dayenu] to read and understand even the first two lines:


These hutsyonu Egypt

Not Ash Bhm Sftim




The psycho-seven, while despising all forms of religious life, starting from the oldest that still remain as great wealth within the Catholic Church, I usually make use of their typical neologisms. All this with a difference, for instance: if the Carthusian monks have created the word "spacing" used to indicate their walk outdoors, When once a week they are together a few hours and turn word, it did not give life or to have its own language or to create a form of lack of communication with the world, but only to define this costume that is born precisely from the range together outdoors can as a rule once a week. Quite another thing if it affiliated to the dangerous psycho-sect of Scientology is expressed in these terms: «In preclear I did auditing for 'Arc and there was a August fluctuating on 'e-meter in respect of past engram». Nor are we wasting time to explain the meaning of these terms abstruse born from the twisted mind of failed science fiction writer Ron Hubbard [1911-1986] that this organization lived in an international court and the other - including the founder who lived before he died in international waters because they wanted by police in eighteen different countries -, It presented itself initially as a way for the New Mental Health, said first and foremost a astruso own lexicon, aimed to isolate their followers from all that was external to it.


With a different style but with the same underlying substance, Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way have drawn various magic words from Hebrew and greek lexicon; no matter how much evidence exists that one or the other did not know at all neither the Jewish nor the Greek philology, what mattered was the Magic, the followers to impress with pompous words. These words were then given different meanings and new, by adding to the whole number of other terminologies that are typical ways to express themselves, to define and indicate. Words original - or if we want new words created by the claimant on the other hand the oldest back to unspecified and especially not better known origins - targeted primarily to fascinate newcomers and to transmit to them a sense of originality, exclusivity and above election. And in the Church, unfortunately, it seems that nobody noticed, for several decades, that was developing internally, increasing branching and psycho-sect in style.


The Church, in his time of great weakness, afflicted by a large and dramatic crisis of authority, allowed many individual fragility and existential frustrations harbored behind a false Pneumatology and many superb animated by ignorance is mettessero playing with the mystery of the Holy Spirit. Under the eyes of the Ecclesiastical Authority did helpless and powerless, we have seen the rise of a movement that in terms of the doctrine of the faith has become dangerously destructive that immediately went to hit two elements that make up the heart and lungs, respectively, of the Holy Church of Christ: the Holy Eucharist and the ministerial priesthood. This sad, bleak and dangerous reality: it is allowed, for half a century in this part, that a real metastases from attacking the heart that is beating and lungs that make breathing body of the Church, meanwhile always talking ... talking ... talking and hoping at the same time that the cancer he cared and defeating himself, without any oncologist he would intervene with therapies decided and radical.






Empirical evidence shows The Neocatechumenal Way is thus the most comprehensive paradigm of immense confusion and alteration of roles created by para-council and then diffused from the post-council, namely clericalization of the laity and the secularization of Ministers in sacris. Or to quote the words Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation The lay of 1988:


"In the same Synod Assembly, however, there have been, along with those positive, too critical judgments about the indiscriminate use of the term "ministry", confusion and sometimes leveling between the common priesthood and the ministerial priesthood, the lack of observance of ecclesiastical laws and norms, the arbitrary interpretation of the concept of "supplementary", the tendency to "clericalization" of the lay faithful and the risk of creating a de facto parallel ecclesial structure of service to that founded on the Sacrament of Orders " [cf. n. 23, full text, WHO].


How many priests me too, coming in contact with various prominent members of the Neocatechumenal Way, from which I soon decided to keep me cautiously away, I was deeply impressed by the invasive and tend to arrogantly expressed towards the priestly figure of those who have shown during this exhibition like the mega-catechists several times. All the more reason I say: Holy Church, allowing this lay movement to open more than one hundred seminars around the world, in the illusion that these training institutions to the priesthood may be the bishop diocesan seminaries that form the priests the bishop, He has made a very serious action and reckless. Inside of of these workshops, indeed formed entities that tomorrow will be priests of the Neocatechumenal Movement, but especially, more than priests the bishop, They will be priests of Kiko Argüello and its mega-catechists.


I really am sorry to narrate but a decade ago, in that of Castel Gandolfo, where I was to preach and celebrate Mass at a religious institute, with one of these mega-catechists almost came to blows. Perhaps it is shameful to narrate by a priest, but if other people had occurred - which still thank you - I would have sidelined shortly thereafter hands on him to really, certainly making quite ill. Never as in this occasion I felt I was in fact deeply despised and disrespected as a priest of Christ and his Holy Church. And please pay attention: I did not say that I felt as a man despised, What I could accept taking the whole thing as sanctifying mortification and reciting all the following Litany of Humility made by the Servant of God Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val [cf. text, WHO]; I said that I felt humiliated as a priest, and most of the lay faithful. And this is not readily acceptable, because the priesthood, that does not belong to me and none of my brothers and none of us can be said to be worthy, is a dignity that comes from the sacramental grace and like every sacrament must be protected and safeguarded, if necessary, even at the cost of life itself.


This is the story of the fact that now I give you all truthful testimony: the mega-catechist in question, following the teachings received, first he expressed a resounding Christological heresy comparing the Son to a "creature of God fell from the sky with the gift of prophecy". This is where you should incidentally point out that defining Christ "creature", that is created, instead of consubstantial "Begotten not made of the same substance as the Father" [the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed], It is the first of the largest and insidious heresies, known as Arianism, condemned in 325 by the Council of Nicea. Appresso continued with a couple of heresies pneumatological proving to have an idea of ​​the Holy Spirit to say the least magica, at last, ranting about Divine Child and the Divine Holy Spirit, He showed to have no clear what was the mystery of the Holy Trinity. But mostly it fell in the enunciation of the old heresy Modalist, mainly diffused by Noetus of Smyrna and also referred to as monarchianism Modalist, which experienced its development between the second and third centuries and was fought by the great philosopher and Christian apologist Tertullian. Thinking of so highly inspired to say something to his mind from his staff and magic Holy Spirit, He enunciated that "the figures of the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit were three different ways in which the one God is manifested to men". And from that Modalist slid so millennial heresy - or heresy Joachim -, saying that "after the era of the figure of the Father, that characterized the Old Testament, and hereinafter referred to as the figure of the Son, following the Second Vatican Council was born the era of the Holy Spirit ". I admit that I had not ever heard, in so few minutes Space, such a miscellany of heresies. So I thought within myself: the fact that the mega-catechists Neocatechumenal always use magic words like the concept of 'back to basics', in this, as in other practical situations, is likely to bring them back, than to the apostolic origins, the origins of the oldest heresies return.


I could take it back in front of everyone, because what medley heretic had tumbler before an audience made up of about thirty people, indeed it would be my duty to say to them: It is in grave error, do not follow his words completely wrong, because something else is the deposit of faith and something else teaches the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I did not, preferring the private fraternal admonition; so I called him by making him fast catechism. A quel point, when I finished the explanation saying "... these are the dogmas of our Holy Faith", with a truly devilish arrogance he interrupted me and said,: "... and it felt! Dogma dogmas ... ... you see that you're an old-fashioned priest pre-conciliar, I had understood instantly. What counts is the kerygma, everything else is archaeological stuff ». After this he said more mocking than ever: "See to fill you!».


A thirty-two mega-catechist that caters well to a priest never seen before, walking time to the exhibition, calling him a "you" as if I were a seminaretto their multinational Seminars mother of The Redeemer, it is certainly not the best of good manners and respect due to a faithful Catholic to a priest. I do not, however, lingered on this, but I reminded him instead, in a very pleasing manner, I had been ordained a priest, and that besides being a priest I was also trained by masters saints as a lawyer, philosopher, sacramentary dogmatic theologian and historian of dogma, therefore, given its young age, for the one and the other thing he could take me at least a modicum of respect. This was his textual response:


"I think you've studied theology evil, because if you had studied should know that the Second Vatican Council said that we are all priests ".


Here we come to the biggest pitfall flavor Lutheran permeating the Neocatechumenal Way in the name of a never written by the Council which takes lives failure to correct perception of the priesthood. It is indeed the Second Vatican Council says in its documents and solemnly reaffirms that there are two priesthoods: the common priesthood of all the baptized [Lumen Gentium, NN. 9-17], and the ministerial or hierarchical priesthood, which is participating in the ministerial priesthood of Christ, which comes to share in the mystery of grace only Ministers in sacris, those who through the sacrament of the grace of Holy priests were consecrated [cf. Lumen Gentium, NN. 18-29]. It is also the same Second Vatican Council which clarifies well and without equivocation worth what the Church is the role of the laity and their docile subordinate to Pastors called to feed the flock [cf. Lumen Gentium, NN. 30-38]. The Second Vatican Council has also published a document dedicated to the life and ministry of priests and the priestly ministry, in which are indicated:


"Exercising the office of Christ the Head and Shepherd for the part of authority is theirs, Priests, in the name of Bishop, gather the family of God as a living brotherhood and united and lead to the Father through Christ in the Holy Spirit. For this ministry, as well as for other functions, It is given to a spiritual power presbyter, which is in fact granted for the purposes of edification. In building the Church, priests must treat all with the relations marked by kindness in, following the example of the Lord. And in dealing with men do not adjust according to their tastes but according to the demands of Christian doctrine and life, teach them and admonish them as beloved sons, according to the words: "Urgent in season and out of season: reproaches, supplication, encourage through all patience and doctrine '' (2 TM 4,2) [1965, Priesthood, n. 6].


The Second Vatican Council is followed by a decree on the Pastoral Mission of Bishops in the Church [1965, Christ the Lord]. At last, always in the context of those years, It was promulgated an encyclical of the Holy Pope Paul VI on the doctrine and worship of the Holy Eucharist [1965, Mysterium Fidei], we can also assume that the founders of the Neocatechumenal Way and the "armed wing" of their mega-catechists have no right ever read, seen and tried the undaunted way you insist on treating, the Most Holy Eucharist.


Needless to say, since it should be obvious: The priest is not a man who has acquired one status which makes it superior to Christi fideles, but it is called to be a loving father and devoted servant of God's People, giving it first instance with his spirit of service. Thus, in the post-conciliar, follow other Church documents that put in perspective the figure of the priest and of his sacred ministry, if it considers that it was in jeopardy, since the beginning of the seventies of the twentieth century, both by certain theologies clumsy both heretical thoughts, just like those released by the Founders of the Neocatechumenal Way from their first rambling catechesis held in the late sixties of the twentieth century in the crypt of the Roman metropolitan church of Canadian Martyrs. And among these many, and indeed also beautiful subsequent documents at Vatican II, we can mention the one dedicated to the Bishops of the Catholic Church on Certain Questions Concerning the Minister of the Eucharist, where we find these words imprinted:


"In teaching that the ministerial or hierarchical priesthood differs essentially and not only in degree from the common priesthood of the faithful, The Second Vatican Council expressed the certainty of faith that only Bishops and priests can confect the Eucharistic Mystery […] In recent years, however, they have begun to spread of opinions, sometimes translated in practice, denying that such education affecting the intimate life of the Church […] They also believe that the Church is apostolic in the sense that all those in holy baptism were washed and incorporated into her, made sharers in the priestly, prophetic and kingly office of Christ, They are also truly successors of the Apostles […] It also follows that, to the extent necessary to the good order of the Church, the ministry of Bishops and priests would not differ from the common priesthood of the faithful as to the participation in the priesthood of Christ in the strict sense, but only by reason […] The call to such a ministry would not amount to a new capacity "priestly" in the strict sense - and why most of the time we avoid the term "priesthood" - but would simply give expression before the community that the original power conferred in the sacrament of Baptism becomes effective […] This conclusion leads also the fact that the celebration of the Eucharist is often understood simply as an act of the local community gathered together to commemorate the Last Supper of the Lord in the breaking of bread. It would therefore be more a fraternal banquet, in which the community comes together and gives expression, than the sacramental renewal of the Sacrifice of Christ, whose saving power extends to all men, present or absent, both living and dead [The ministerial, 1983, full text WHO].


The question is, to say the least penalty: with this very precise document that would be good, like everyone else recalled here, read carefully in full, who is turning the early eighties of the twentieth century, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith? As regards instead the young mega-catechist of which I have just narrated, I learned later that it was the son of two mega-catechists of the Movement. And despite having understood instantly how arrogant and mostly ignorant person, I was detailed that it was not able to finish even the high school and that in practice was working as a catechist, after having repeatedly failed in some work experience. Maybe I came across an isolated case, or in a so-called borderline case that between these lines, moved by some kind of malice and prevention, port as if it were a kind of rule? No, it is not and I will try to explain better with another example: way back in 2010, when it was doing with some diligence ministry as a confessor in a Roman basilica it is home perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, I went specifically the confessional in which I was to draw attention to a group of the Neocatechumenal who disrespectfully, talking loudly and laughing, They had entered into the basilica where he was exposed the Blessed Sacrament, without a slightest sign of respect and reverence. The worst thing was that it was a group of catechists who were to hold a meeting between them (!?). More of their irreverent noise, far more irreverent was the answer of most mega-catechist among the group of mega-catechists. It was an hour before the Neocatechumenal, She could tell by his age, model seventies of the twentieth century and there remained fossilized, who he said to me,:


"Boy, see to give you calm down, because I think you have a lot to learn: the Easter bread is not made to be exposed, but to be eaten as nourishment of the spirit '.


I grabbed a heavy gilt bronze chandelier from a side chapel and Intimae very seriously:


"Get out immediately on your lap, or would you prefer me to come get soon an ambulance to take you at your nearest emergency orthopedic traumatology department?»


That said I will stop certainly to add, because nothing There is just to add. Perhaps one thing I can add: the day before this happened did, as I was to begin my turn to confessions, a lovely old Roman motioned me to approach with her hand to her shortly after the front door, He walked so unsteadily help of his cane:


«Father, jie I asked 'a grace pe' is Pora old?».


He motioned with his head and she went:


«She who as a priest is pure holy n'anima was' No great sinner, He might kneels' pe me in front of Domnineddio, because I know 'years nun me that I can no longer kneels before him ar Lord. So always domanno to quarche young if some '' nginocchiasse pe 'me. But then, If pe 'me' even a priest s'enginocchia, er Lord Jie happier AGAIN».


Here is a true and authentic mega-catechist of which the Neocatechumenal would seriously, urgent and vital need, if they were not the result and the sad product of confused ignorance and arrogance of Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández.


I find it disheartening that before the obvious mistakes of this movement some of my fellow priests did not hesitate to betray the mission of their divine mandate that involves a office triple: teaching, governing and sanctificandi [to teach, to rule, santificare]. Like it or not, ours is an orderly hierarchical structure sacramentally, therefore, between the priest and the lay faithful, the ratio is not horizontal, face to face, but it is a top-down ratio, When the priest exercises his office. Is this office It can not in any way be dominated by the role of mega-lay catechists who exercise their potestas totally unwarranted - since theologically, ecclesially and canonically nonexistent - on the figure of the priests themselves, and in a particular way on those belonging to the Neocatechumenal, sadly peace for the Church's responsibility and thus for the eternal salvation of the soul of those ecclesiastical authorities who allowed this Movement, with the opening of their seminars, of being able to fabricate even priests to their own measurement. That fact very brutally: the central figure, This Movement, is that of the mega-catechists, priests are considered and treated as pure consecrators of wafers, moreover packaged according to the recipes of Arguello and distributed as established by him.


If certain affiliates and certain mega-catechists in a very particular way can be very difficult to recover, if not through real psychological therapies for de-mental programming, which as we said previously are long, expensive and the outcome far from certain, the columns of this our happy Island of Patmos, however, we can reach out to all those who might avoid falling into this network, or to those who, there being recently fallen, They can get out quite smoothly. Let me therefore conclude this purpose and end with a brief catechesis on the priesthood, Based on the writings and the words of the great Fathers of the Church, which I hope will be recognized more wisdom, grace, authority and authoritativeness of what they had never Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández ...


... the Holy Bishop Ambrose says: «[…] the dignity of the priest is the noblest of all. There is nothing more sublime in this world. The dignity of the priest exceeds that of kings, as gold lead. Gold is not much more valuable than lead, how much is the highest dignity of the priesthood on the royal dignity. This is because the power of kings is limited to the bodies of subjects, material goods, that of the priests on the other hand extends spiritual goods, soul ' [The dignity of the Priest].


The holy Bishop and Doctor of the Church Augustine of Hippo, talking about the inseparable relationship between the Eucharist and the ministerial priesthood writes: "O venerable holiness in my hands! O happy work! Who created me, he gave me power to create him! Who created without me, he has created himself by me!» [ In Ps. 37]. He explains in his sermon the Church Father St. Jerome: "The word God created out of nothing heaven and earth, so, the word of the priest, during the Eucharistic celebration, creates Christ " [The report about the body of Christ]. Writes St. Clement of Alexandria: "The more the soul is important in the body, the more excellent is the priesthood of a kingdom " [constant. AP. 1.2, (c). 34]. And St. John Chrysostom: "The principles exert power over the body constraints; the priests also on the soul " [the Jac. 1.3]. The Holy Doctor of the Church, Bernard of Clairvaux teaches well: "That the priest surpasses all dignities of King, emperors and the angels' [Word to pasta. In Syn.]. To follow with Angelic Doctor Thomas Aquinas, who teaches that "The priestly dignity even exceeds that of the angels [3 p., q. 22, art. 1]. Perhaps taking a cue in this from other previous, because already St. Gregory Nazianzen also taught in his sermons: "The priesthood is also worshiped by angels' [word 26 Sanct. Petr.]. St. Francis of Assisi, when to instruct their brothers to the sacred respect for priests sent them on purpose to confess to priests known for their bad conduct of life, she used to say: "If I saw an angel of heaven and a priest, before genufletterei before the priest, then before the Angel ".


At the time of the Fourth Lateran Council, the Pope Innocent III wrote: "Although the Blessed Virgin is superior to the Apostles, However, only these keys of the kingdom of heaven have been entrusted " [A new kind of Pocn. Rem.]. Concept which is echoed by San Bernardino of Siena in one of his sermons: 'Blessed Virgin, forgive me, I do not mean to offend you in any way, but the priest prevails on you!» [Tom. The, word 20, art. 2, (c). 7]. And with these words the Holy Preacher intended to explain and transmit the Mater Dei conceived Christ once for, while the priest, reciting the Eucharistic Prayer, This makes every time celebrating the Eucharistic Sacrifice of the Mass, because with the sacred species of bread and wine he conceives how often wants.


We could go on and on with the theological literature of the great Fathers and Doctors of the Church, but I think we can stop to expose a dramatic query: It was needed Arguello and Carmen Hernandez to rewrite the Eucharist and with it the ministerial priesthood? What terrible sadness in seeing these neocatecumenalizzati priests who, after having lost the very perception of the dignity that has been conferred upon them by the Sacrament of grace, shake their heads in assent while in the room stands the figure of the mega-catechist who rant before the priest poor dumb and condescending, unaware of being coated, forever, for eternity, a dignity that is higher than the dignity of the same angels of God ... that immense sadness! And if all this happened, it is because the same visible Church has lost dramatically, I dare say almost diabolical, the dignity that Christ incarnate Word of God, dead, resurrected and ascended to heaven, He has given to the Church his bride.


May God have mercy therefore of grave sins of omission our Ecclesiastical Authority, that rather than protect the Church and its Holy People are continuing to talk ... talk ... talk ... throwing at most, occasionally, a few words of reproach more or less veiled or two-way. But in veiled reproach jokes or two-way, unfortunately it does not reside salvation: nor of those who make the jokes, nor the people of God that receives.





Everything I have written It has been driven by the imperative priestly awareness for the love I have for the Holy Church of Christ and the living members of the Holy People of God, then to alert these same limbs that the Neocatechumenal is in all respects a casing only apparently Catholic, that internally encloses misleading doctrines of Jewish-Protestant matrix, mixed with old heresies again reformulated and made present in our contemporary. This movement is so determined, despite numerous and unnecessary calls by the Holy See, to perpetrate serious liturgical abuses, which as explained in detail in this border on my exposure often the real sacrilege of the Holy Eucharist, they mistakenly perceived and transmitted as joyful banquet and fraternal convivio, with blatant and contemptuous refusal sacrificial element that renews the memorial altar the bloodless sacrifice of the saving Passion of Christ the Lord, who with his sacrifice became the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world [GV 1, 29].


The leaders of this movement have not transposed neither gained nor transmitted all the teachings of the Second Vatican Council regarding the diverse and distinct characteristics that characterize the common priesthood of the baptized and the ministerial priesthood received by sacramental grace Ministers in sacris, nor they have transposed, always from the doctrines of the Council, what is the precise role of the laity in the Catholic Church. This movement is structured in all respects like a closed sect that tends to engulf the people, leveraging on their weakness and fragility for the purpose of making them subservient and therefore still weaker, while our mission, task and purpose is to acquaint Christi fideles that truth will make you free [GV, 8]. For this reason, fulfilling my role as a pastor in charge of souls, confessor and spiritual director, whenever the opportunity presented itself, I always discouraged the faithful from taking any kind of path to the rediscovery and deepening of the Catholic faith within this movement where raging serious disorders liturgical and doctrinal errors.


Claims made against me by the Neocatechumenal, I publicly accused of promoting liturgical abuses and heretical doctrines, they are and are irrelevant and devoid of foundation as of now, If no objective truth and scientific rigor. It was in fact with historical rigor, theological, ecclesiological and legal - and certainly not moved by emotional instincts - I indicated proven and documented evidence of their mistakes, verifiable by anyone involved in around the world for their exotic liturgies or the catechesis held by many of their highly unprepared catechists. But if they believe that is wrong I, in that case they have to submit my writing to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, asking it to indicate my mistakes and then force me to publish, the same journal in which I published this my critical examination, The text of disapproval towards me where the competent department instead attesting full legitimacy, as approved by the Holy See, the Eucharistic Liturgies celebrated by the Neocatechumenal in major non-conformity to the liturgical books and Instruction on the Roman Missal, then the full legitimacy, as approved by the Holy See, of their oral catechesis do not conform to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and finally the full legitimacy, as approved by the Holy See, of lay catechists figures that overhang and that place in the second floor before the faithful the figure of the priest of Christ.


Otherwise, the Neocatechumenal silent, because it will be better for them and for the salvation of their souls, because I seriously doubt that the Holy See, in their defense, agree to contradict, or worse to deny, the principal documents of the Second Vatican Council and those of the Magisterium of the Church. It has been doing rigorous scientific use of these documents that the Neocatechumenal persist in fact to flout, I put in clear light - and only for imperative of conscience -, their serious and dangerous heresies, which combine an arbitrary use, and sometimes even sacrilegious, Sacred Liturgy of the Eucharist. And from all this, the Holy People of God, It should be asked to keep away. "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture" [Gives, 23].

  1. Thank you so much for this article, I found true, need, and founding, above all, timely clarification of the doctrine of the Church.
    I came from far away and do not know anything, the way he intercepted me 20 years and stayed here because of 35 year old, Also making the catechist for over 25, something I now bitterly regret.
    I was able to see and experience for yourself the secular dominance, the insignificance of Ministers ordered, the arrogance of the catechists DIY you believe infallibly inspired by the Holy Spirit.
    All true.
    The Lord then, after so long, It puts me in the heart of the doubt, going from so many situations.
    I started to openly highlight various distortions practices but, since in this way it is not permissible because it can not exit the battalion (you called armed, almost the same) without paying the consequences, I had to leave because my life had become impossible in there.
    I started reading and to inform me and I found myself in the Church's explanation of my feeling and I thank God that put me doubt the heart.
    I pray for my priest, a good man neocatechumenal, oppressed and despised by…

    1. Dear Father Ariel,

      thanks for his long and detailed article, behind which he perceives an accurate and long research. May God reward you if you will not do the church hierarchy: she makes a valuable service to the Catholic Church, re-establishing the truth. It does not give account to the insults that have already begun to arrive. Who insults shows 1. Not to have arguments with which to fight back and thus implicitly that everything she says is true and 2. What the so-called journey of faith does not produce Christians, but only arrogant beings, proud and violent. Exactly the opposite of what he preached Jesus Christ.

      Thanks again. I will pray that God help her always in his pastoral work.

  2. Padre Ariel,

    I read his work crying twice for two different reasons:

    1. the first cry, because I relived the pain that I suffered in the Neocatechumenal give us years, suffice it to say that the catechists forced my boyfriend to leave for the Holy Spirit “She had told him that he had a vocation to the priesthood”, of, totally plagiarism, followed a path that was not his, He became a priest five years later, and after a year, when it was “itinerant” he left the priesthood to get in a Pentecostal sect.

    2. the second cried: She has given a voice, and justice, many people who have lived moments, or even really terrible long years.

    If when I left the Way I had not met a holy Capuchin friar confessor, I think I would have abandoned the Catholic Church, in part because I was angry, and partly in total crisis of faith.

    Know that you are vindictive, although from what he writes, and as it writes, I have the impression that she speak only on evidence, and, those who read it carefully, She understands what she's certainly not a fool who rushes against windmills, if anything, are the mills, attempting to launch, without success, about her.

    I promise I will pray for her and for his priestly mission, but in the meantime thank you so much.

    Anna from Rome

  3. she is an ignorant Emeritus, in all directions … she is a failure as “theologian” and priest, and since, thank God no one row, then tries desperately to get in prominence.

    Saint John Paul II has approved us, Like it or not like it, if he faces a reason, great jerk!

    Here's proof

    1. During the anti-Catholic Mexican Revolution 1927, preceded in 1917 a constitution in which the clergy were disenfranchised, for the priests had more than one of you kikos passionate. Indeed, before you kill the priests, ferrata with a brush tore his palms, a day on which was engraved the anointing with Sacred Chrism. This was because, those torturers, in their own way they recognized the sanctity of the priest.

      His reporting deserves to be clarified and specified, because in this happy Patmos Island John's is intimately related with the truth that will set us free and not manipulation, and in some things you need to be clear:

      In this photo [see WHO] You will see the Holy Father John Paul II receiving Marco Pannella and Emma Bonino young; in this other photo [see WHO], You can not see the young Emma Bonino, received by Pope Francis.

      Well: satisfied that the Radical Party and the Radical militants, We have used these images to affirm: "The Pope John Paul II approved the Abortion" or "The Pope Francis I has approved euthanasia and gender»?
      Of course not, but if you want to explain why this has not happened: because the radicals are serious people.

      In addition to her, This video was sent to me in triumphant tones from his other co-sectarian tones more or less equally insulted, Therefore I say to her and to all of them:

      1. in 2002 Pope John Paul II has neither approved nor definitively canonized the Neocatechumenal Way, enough that she - and others like her who sent us this video - first of all understood what it means approval to experiment for five years [see the document of the Holy See: WHO];

      2. to try for five years the statutes were approved by the Holy See corrected giving time to the Route to adapt over the years established at all the corrections applied to them, but above all to conform to the liturgical norms of the Church because the Church could not grant the Way liturgies its mainly based on a misperception of the Holy Eucharist;

      3. The Holy See has continued, in the years after 2002, to make various and repeated references to the Neocatechumenal who do not conform to the liturgical norms and when the 2005 he was tempted to manipulate a letter of appeal competent dicastery by passing it as an endorsement, Prefect for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments gave an interview to Vatican Radio in order to clarify the contents [see document WHO];

      4. in 2008, under the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI, the statutes are approved definitively after further correction of the Holy See and the Decree is written that are approved because the Founders of the Way "welcomed the changes [Ed by the Holy See] the drafting of the Statute ";

      5. in the decree of definitive approval by the Council for the Laity it is written: "Your apostolic action intends to take place in the heart of the Church, in total harmony with her directives and in communion with the particular Churches in which you are going to operate making the most of the fullness of charisms that the Lord has awakened through the initiators of the Way ";

      6. In 2012, the Supreme Pontiff Benedict XVI approves the celebrations planned for the various stages of the Way to celebrate outside the Eucharistic liturgy and are part dell'intinerario provided by the statutes, and in this regard clarifies: "A little while ago I was reading the decree with which they are approved celebrations in the" Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way ", that they are not strictly liturgical, but they are part of the itinerary of growth in faith ».

      A quel point, that in his speech of 2012, Benedict XVI being aware - because the Holy See is very well informed - that the Neocatechumenal continue to perform liturgical abuses of every kind ever approved by the Church and for which they were called repeatedly; so well informed orally that is followed to give direction and teachings that were taken from the texts of the statutes they are approved to experiment that definitively, the Pope made a speech in which he called the order and respect for liturgical norms of the Church and approved the Statutes of the Way, baste she read that speech WHO.

      But it, if even then reproachful speech, she reads yet another endorsement, then I riemetto the oars and go further because it would be like trying to convince a Mormon is not true that an angel of God has appeared to Joseph Smith in 1823 giving the book of a new revelation.

      Therefore, the video that you sent us, in the light of these facts it does not mean anything if you do not repeat with painful obstinacy the clumsy attempt which was made by Kiko Arguello in 2002 to persuade their followers that the Holy See had approved all, and in every way, namely the liturgical and doctrinal oddities that the Way continued with impunity to perpetrate.

      Have therefore the seriousness that the Radical Party members, that never strumentalizzerebbero of images in which their two leaders They are portrayed with Popes John Paul II and Francis I, to make believe that the Holy See endorses abortion, euthanasia and gender. What this would not happen because they never - I repeat - the Radicals are serious people.

    2. Thank you for signing revealed for who you katekumen ! You are more than help you who chilimetri ink ! Now bring your catechist what you wrote and then write here what you suggested ! Thanks again !

    3. I completely agree. but so it is useless because they only know how to write on papyrus scrolls to stretch their vanity for a few seconds … I barely read the title.
      the Church has approved, so be quiet for once in your life and you do SHARES

    4. This opening words put Ariel's father at the beginning of the answer …

      “During the anti-Catholic Mexican Revolution 1927, preceded in 1917 a constitution in which the clergy were disenfranchised, for the priests had more than one of you kikos passionate. Indeed, before you kill the priests, ferrata with a brush tore his palms, a day on which was engraved the anointing with Sacred Chrism. This was because, those torturers, in their own way they recognized the sanctity of the priest”.

      … It should make her feel, not honestly tell you what, for reaching out publicly in this way to a fifty old priest, with solid doctrine and exemplary priestly life costumes known and recognized, especially by the many priests who use him for years as a confessor.

      For different reasons, but more or less similar, eighteen years ago, I am arriving in the parish at that time I was entrusted by the bishop, first of all, After a month, set to lead seven groups Neocatechumenals in it were the masters.
      And you pay attention: They do not emptied at all the parish, but rather, their going away, They returned all the parishioners who because of them were gone, and the church was much more populated than before.

      I have known and experienced deeply, in all the worst aspects, the lack of compliance with certain lay catechists towards priests, This way to express themselves and to attack not the classic loose cannon isolated, but unfortunately it is in practice the practice to anyone who would contradict them, including pastors.

    5. … Me too, in the years when I was a pastor in a parish of Vomero (Naples) a Neocatechumenal gave me the “asshole” in front of the children catechism in preparation for Confirmation, time has passed but I think you are always healing wounds. Me him out of hand under the permanent deacon, while all the kids were rooting for the pastor saying “from, from!”.
      Even the father Ariel, It is prudent and appropriate to give the “asshole” only via internet …

    6. Congratulations on your speech very merciful and Christian, besides very well argued !
      If these are the fruits of his Way you can do less tranquillamentea.

    7. Congratulations on your speech very merciful and Christian besides well-argued.
      If these are the fruits of his Way they can do unless traquillamente.

  4. The article by Don Ariel has the same idiolect of an anti-Way blog, to say the least, guilty of objectivity. Indeed, I find the same derogatory terms and the same linguistic structures used by the participants of that blog, resentful towards the Way. Basically it is the manifesto of that blog!
    Previously I had no doubt that Don Ariel was one of the participants of that blog when I read in an article in the history of the "little nun foolish" anti-Council of Trent with whom he had one day a dialectic, which it was also stipulated in the personal experiences of an anonymous commentator on the blog. However, after reading this article I have no doubt: Don Ariel is one of those "Observatory".
    And naturally, all this already is enough to disqualify her impressive work. A work extremely biased reports that not even a positive aspect of the Way but considers only the absolute evil.
    Well, an ecclesial reality that has been screened and never stop as well 5 popes, it is not possible to not have a positive aspect. As it is not possible that well 5 Popes have sin of "lack of…

    1. I do not even know that blog which is referred to, and I certainly did not study a lifetime to go then, the thresholds 56 year old, plagiarized around the Internet.

      If there is a partisan of the worst sectarian stack these is you, who has not read all my work, in which it is explained and reiterated that the grace of God and how you can help, the Neocatechumenal Way, to accomplish redemptive actions of salvation upon the souls; nor have I doubted the sincerity and good faith of many of his members, also because – as I explained in my writing that she appears not to have his own bed – I am a pastor in charge of souls and a theologian, I'm not a mega-catechist, therefore clear to me has always been the fact that the deep consciousness of man only God can penetrate and read. What this that she should go and explain to the mega-catechists, how can witness authentic armies of people, during public meetings they have publicly investigated and invaded the consciences up to ask repeatedly to husbands or wives if they had ever committed adultery, or young people if they had never masturbated.

      Or is perhaps not known that at some point, the leaders of the Way, They did run voice among the mega-catechists who had to avoid ask seminarians and priests who had set out, if they resorted to masturbation? The seminarians and priests who have felt ask these questions in public from mega-catechists, They are also part of the multinational satanic false witnesses?

      Will it be asserted that this is a “idioletto” and that all these witnesses, many of which are still upset even after many years for those aggressive invasions of their deepest conscience, make up all of the satanic multinational false witnesses around the world have agreed to discredit the Neocatechumenal Way?

      Therefore she has proven to comment, heavy skirting accusations of superficiality to me, what she has not even read. But then it is understandable why, his pen was moved by the Holy Spirit, that exempts from reading, from analyzing and use the same common sense. And this lack of common sense, door sad necessity, the sectarian, never respond to the merits of the issues. Then I do one, unique and simple question:

      If you feel up to refute numerous witnesses, including former seminarians and priests who had approached the Way, who they reported that they felt ask the public from mega-catechists if they had never committed adultery or had recourse to masturbation? So he brings himself to reply to all of them that are just liars that make false testimonies to discredit the greatest gift given by the Holy Spirit to the Church, ie the Neocatechumenal?

      How do you see, answer this question, It is not that difficult, just replicate: all these, husbands, could, Former seminarians and priests, They are false liars who lie.
      It takes that much?

      Following his warning went looking for the blog in question, which in truth I had never read and whose staff do not and never have been part.
      And even if as you say, He expressed the same things, what it means? Although the synoptic Gospels report for much of the same things, She therefore believes that, Evangelists, They have copied from each other and finally, in the era of Constantine, about casting lots, They were chosen from among the various tens then present, the Gospels that were more convenient to the Emperor Constantine?

    2. In Christ esteemed brother Ariel,

      God will reward you for the good you have done with this "wise" that should be read well in those hallowed halls, but we know, you and us, that what, unfortunately, It will not happen.
      We are two diocesan priests, If we omit the name is not to make "anonymous lions", but why enter into controversy would not help, if not rinvangare old and excruciating pain involving many other people and institutions.

      We entered both in the seminary mother of The Redeemer after a run in the Way started 11 and 13 year old. We come to the point: that of sex and sexuality, I'm referring to in this response to Alberto, It is a real obsession.
      We confirm that you have responded to this classical neocat, I give to, as other, never expect, answers on the merits, only based attacks punches pulled to the sky.

      When we decided to leave the seminary, we had many problems:

      1. with the first Way ;
      2. with our families both Neocatechumenal;
      3. find a diocesan bishop that we uphold it made us a letter of resignation in which only lacked to writing that we were two possessed.

      A holy diocesan bishop welcomed us and, after having kept him in the bishop for two months, one evening he called us and asked if I felt, He is having already made three years of seminary (we were starting the IV), to start over the whole training, because we were not trained (exactly as you write and explain!) but deformed. We accepted.

      During that summer (June September) the bishop gave us in foster care for an elderly priest who for four months taught us first the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Then the first of October the bishop sent there at the Angelicum in Rome. We were retained to studies by Bishop, who paid from his own pocket with his salary and the donations he received when he made pastoral visits in diocese. We have five years of education, starting from philosophical studies.

      Meanwhile, they tried to give us all possible problems, the six species Neocatechumenals groups present in the diocese, who sent letters to Rome to warn that the bishop had taken two seminarians “thrown out” for very serious problems from the workshop mother of The Redeemer. It was not true, we came out of our initiative, no one blinked off, but they, After that we went there, They wrote and put on record a posthumous letter of expulsion (!?).

      Our respective parents, instigated by catechists, They sent a letter to the bishop writing to him that he should not make us priests and asked for it to be registered on record.
      When we ordered our respective parents were not present, and Bishop, with an exceptionally large, at the end of the homily he told us ... "I remember, your bishop, I'm your father and your mother, and the diocese is your family ".

      We confirm the question you addressed this Alberto in reply to his comments, because we, that kind of invasive questions, we feel we are the contact several times and we have heard many times ask couples about their marital fidelity, always in front of everyone.

      In private, we'll broader mandate letter signed by both and with all our contact details, you can use, with priestly discretion, from any ecclesiastical authority should in any capacity summon, but what we know that will never happen.

      Today we are both pastors for six years, respectively: one of a large parish, one of two averages parishes and chaplain of a chaplaincy, a couple of years ago, Diocesan Vicar General, He called two catechists of the Way who spread among the voice necoatecumenali place … the sacraments celebrated and taught by us were invalid because there was no action of the Holy Spirit that we had denied and rejected years and years before (!?).

      We take this opportunity to invite the readers to support The island of Patmos, as in our small we make ourselves a few years.

      Letter signed

      After written

      The elderly priest, today returned to the Father's House, who taught the Catholic catechism us before we went to Rome to start from scratch all studies to train for the priesthood, he gave us when we were ordered, with his savings, two goblets and four beautiful chasubles each of the various liturgical colors. Always him, earlier, when we made the application to holy orders, He gave us two cassocks, and he told us: “never forget them in the closet!”.

      1. Thank you for your witness. And thanks to Father Ariel. What malice and vindictiveness that have had to endure. The retaliation of which you were the victims and also the alienation of your parents remember precisely the systems of totalitarian regimes… And how surprised? The founder of the journey has grown and is just below a dictatorship format… But divine justice exists. If the church hierarchy remains silent and does not move a finger, God in due course will re-establish the truth and justice.

  5. Good morning.

    I read with interest your article and like other times I have thought that the way in which I was and who I trusted to 30 year old (Now I went out) It has been detrimental to me. My daughter is in junior high yesterday surprised me, not that I ever talked summarized: “I do not know if I want to get into the community, I like living together and be together but I do not know if it's for me that long and put all those prayers”.

    It moved me, It summed up the reason, only, leading many to enter and stay on the path: brothers and have also only help in sharing prayer. Why do not you quit, do not fight? Why stay only after you have invested so much burns…
    Everything else is rather seen as a “must” but that many would rather avoid. I do not oppose it if you would have this experience, but I stand by.

    She wrote very clearly, however,, It is having been a “convinced” supporter I know that in that state does not count the truth but what we are told is the truth.

  6. Good morning, Father Ariel,

    I'm an ex-neocatechumenal, I made the journey to 17 years and I'm outside 3. I read your article with great joy. You were clear,synthetic,simple and strong.

    You did not beat about the bush and told the simple truth, making names and surnames, no veiled allusions possibility of misunderstanding or. You're risking so much, but I think you're aware of it, these people who have denounced is powerful, devious and mean.
    I wanted to make a statement that I think is important, on the Neocatechumenal Catechetical Directory. In 2010 It was approved the "Catechetical Directory" of the Neocatechumenal Way. This document is mentioned in the statutes of the 2002 and 2008. You talk about 12 volumes, I know I 14 volumes that path despite the approval of the Church refuses to publish.
    Kiko wants a free hand to extend at will the gnostic path of his pseudo-path-of-faith, like the passage of the Marriage Spiritual you do after 10 years after the end of the road. This does not make any sense because it is not possible to approve and publish a charter to a movement, inside which it refers to a document that is not only the public but which is stretched at will by the founder without Church approval.

    Today, with this excuse of the Catechetical Directory approved by the Church, It justifies two of the biggest heresies of the way, which according to the lay catechists of the movement are contained just inside of the Directory: obedience to the lay catechists walk and "tenth" of the gains of catechumens payable to Neocatechumenal Way.
    In these volumes that the path refuses to publish, there is the essence of the way that would make clear to all the world of difference between the Church and the way. Furthermore would understand if the journey, still, propina the old "mamotreto" from which comes the Directory or if inspired by the Executive Board approved in 2010 by the Church.

    This thing is important because I'm quite sure that certain heretical expressions and meaningless stemming from old mamotreti were heavily corrected by the congregations of the Church who have examined.

    This I think is the real reason why Kiko does not publish the Directory approved. Because the lies have short legs and publishing the Directory approved should correct the entire Neocatechumenal Way, should admit 50 years of lies, thing you will never do.

    A hug

    1. Dear Luca,

      your text is so clear that there is just nothing to add, precisely because he speaks for itself.

      I will just answer to one point, Also to hearten you and other people who have variously expressed that these individuals have the “easy complaint”.
      Well I reassure people who have shown me love and concern by saying this: in the criminal legal system of the Italian Republic, however, I know that for my previous secular education prior to the priesthood, It does not act like in the current ecclesiastical courts, nor shall it apply, as it happens today in Church merciful, free will of the most arrogant instead of the now nonexistent Canon Law.

      Querelare me, eg for libel [ex art. 595 C.P.], would mean first of all put a criminal court dealing with a matter which not only does not contain within itself any element of crime, It does not touch the property of any title the skills of our Judges, who they are not and can not be appointed to define what is heresy and what is Catholic orthodoxy, what is liturgical abuse hugging the sacrilege of the Holy Eucharist – how many times I have said – and what it is not. Therefore, any plaintiffs, risk being sued by me, to say the least perhaps little church and ecclesiastical, reacting with a counter-lawsuit, as they say – or how would that great man of letters de Meo er Patacca the tear Pure li er ass movie.

      Maybe some small discomfort could give me through those two or three cardinal or those four or five bishops at their very attached, but even then it is solvable, just remember that both the cardinals to the bishops in question, they do not come from what was once the richest family of Cardinal Merry del Val, but from a very modest family and that several of them have made the seminar with the support of the diocese or of a benefactor, then I would invite them to clarify what are their notes and recognized end balance sheet entities, to see if their deposits and assets do not come by chance from the collections made with blacks bags inside of the Neocatechumenal Way.

      It also and especially in this case, the question would be immediately closed, especially considering that the reigning Pontiff began the his pontificate saying "what I would like a poor Church for the poor"

  7. still attend the Neocatechumenal Way, They are now over 20 years and are nearing its end. I do not know if I'll finish first or end before the Way. Thank you for the work he has done in deepening these abuses that almost all walkers can not understand. From my past experiences in community I can claim to have found an inability total reliance on reason and the study of the Magisterium and the Church's tradition. For instance: for years Kiko and his subordinates have condemned the call upon the Saints as recourse to pay “natural religiosity” kikiana against the doctrine of God sends misfortunes and you have to totally accept the story. In recent years they have promoted “ask thank Carmen which is a holy superior”. These incredible gyrations have already been repeated hundreds of times, and when Kiko die, his heirs will have to be even more skilled in the changes. One last question Don Ariel. Starting from his knowledge of the history of the Church and of the Neocatechumenal Way, What we can expect from the late founder?

    1. Dear Justin,

      Kiko Arguello is a self-centered narcissistic personality I say so, I am a priest and a theologian and not a specialist in psychiatric sciences, they say psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, several of whom had to treat even for years, individually or through group family therapy, many people devastated after years outputs from these groups. If I used in my writing terminology psycho-sect and why, before protests or complaints in the unlikely ecclesiastical forum by stakeholders, I would submit to the competent dicastery of the Holy See to account and reason accompanied by an army of psychiatrists and clinical psychologists, documenterebbero several of whom have also sent several times to the various relationships diocesan bishops, most of whom did not even deign to reply, so difficult is the problem to be treated; and this is obviously also documented. In these reports the specialist represented the serious psychological damage found in a number of their patients out of this Movement.

      Therefore I said that it is a self-centered narcissistic personality, it is very unlikely that over the years has guaranteed the Arguello and prepared the succession. But this is my hypothesis totally free, precisely because they do not know, if he did it or not. If he had not done, in this case we will see an internal implosion; and finally, the rotten sapling passed to a solid oak, it will be recognized by all the fruits that gave.

  8. The essay is unexceptionable and complete answer for anyone who asks how it is that a real sectarian comes as the Neocatechumenal Way may have wedged in the heart of the Catholic Church.
    Council to the many friends who in good faith are included in this organization, to watch this space for comments check if even one of the Neocatechumenal catechists, provincial leaders, regional, national, International, priests, will answer the arguments tightened Don Ariel and how it will.
    In case he does not recover her consciousness no valid answer, even if only partial, We begin to wonder why continues to give credence to spiritual directives and lives of people who can not make it accomplished reason for this undertaking, and they do take other lightly, But asking a personal commitment increasingly onerous and stringent.
    I thank Don Ariel for this work, a true work of spiritual mercy.

  9. Father I thank Ariel for his article.

    He does not say new things in the way that I knew I, but what he says and how he says it to me has more value precisely because it told by a priest that, fearless, He says what was said many years ago, and he says having at heart the good of the Christian people.

    I am heartened to read in black and white, in Father Ariel pages, declared bluntly in clear and simple language,the lies,heresies,the misinformation that I have personally lived in the Neocatechumenal Way.

    I think it lacks only the word end to this sordid farce that is called the Neocatechumenal Way.


  10. Thank you Father Ariel.

    Five years ago I not even know who they were. Then I began to hear nominate – especially at the time of the first Family Day – and not understand much, by reading both high praise and great critical. Studying gradually I came to understand. This has the advantage of his article fill my last gaps, confirm things that I sensed and summarize all relevant issues in a single document.

  11. Sorry Don Ariel,

    I am still Luca.
    I wanted to ask a question, because your article is copyright, if the mold and I do read commit a crime?


    1. Dear Luca,

      the script has its own printable version to be printed and made reading.
      To copyright It means that no one can publish without authorization. It can also be shown without the problem on other sites or blogs, provided it is indicated the link de The island of Patmos and the author.
      Let me explain better: what you can not do is add in any publication without permission, or taking it whole or in part without citing the source and author.
      For the rest, printable version, It is just for the free dissemination.

  12. If it were all true what you said Don Ariel means that the ability to discern well 5 Popes and the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, over the past 50 year old, is equal to zero!
    Of course, The mere common sense tells us that this can not be true. What then there have been abuses, of any nature, in each case I would not rule it out. As well as the Way doctrinal errors that were, and then, corrected by the Church when it approved the Catechetical Directory.
    But you can not condemn the Way as a whole and consider it pure evil. Otherwise, you sin of pride, because it considers his ability to discern than that of the Church.
    Then, The question to ask is only this: I trust the judgment of the Church on the Neocatechumenal Way?
    So far no official document of the Church has judged the Way as a sect, moreover heretical. Therefore, for now they're in the wrong all the detractors of the Way, beginning with Don Ariel!

    1. The discernment of the Church visible in recent 50 years are evident from the news that we read every day, the amount of heretics and perverts who swarm everywhere, to which no one has been able to curb. So this is not an argument.

      1. … but expensive Fabrizio, what it says … But what does?
        The old Cardinal Theodor McCarrick, Serial molester unpunished for decades, He has survived intact over several pontificates in virtue of the high and dare I say “infallible” Ecclesiastical Authority's ability to discern!
        For this I am amazed how, the threshold of ninety, when dirt was now likely to keep curial carpet raised by one meter off the ground, with as many high and dare say “infallible” ability to discern, was graciously It defrocked a few centimeters from the grave, while at the same time, one of his main pupils, meanwhile already become cardinal, He was appointed Camerlengo of Holy Roman Church.

        Please Fabrizio, do not doubt the ability of our Ecclesiastical Authority discernment, indeed beg just not doubt, He may go hence of the eternal salvation of his immortal soul.

    2. Dear Alberto,

      my conscience as a priest and my conscience as a theologian force me to scold, once and for all, rebuke for the poor service that she is making to the Neocatechumenal Way, within which – first of all talking in my writing of the mystery of grace – I have not denied, indeed quite the opposite, I explained how it can be an instrument through which many souls to reach salvation. It would be enough just to know what are the ordinary means of salvation, namely the Church and the sacraments of grace, and the extraordinary means of salvation, which are enclosed in the mystery of God and that God uses it as and when he wants – it goes without saying – without some having to ask permission to us.

      The bad and dangerous service that she is making to the Neocatechumenal Way is the fact that, just like a Jehovah's Witness with the rhyme learned by heart, or as a Scientologist “brainwashed”, you claim to be a part of interacting, but when they are posed pointed questions, She followed like a broken record repeating the chant again, "we have been approved … we have been approved … discernment of five Pontiffs … five pontiffs …».

      1. repeat: I have set the precise questions, as you can read, which are based on proven facts and documentable, but to which she does not respond;

      2. I explained in my written – the theology of it, not with the stomach with subjective mood and passions – that holiness does not imply perfection of all pastoral actions, the choices and talk of a Supreme Pontiff, This thing that can be confirmed by all the specialists who deal with the causes of saints;

      3. The Popes who have had to deal directly with the Neocatechumenal Way are two and only two: John Paul II, who after many years has given him a try to experiment and Benedict XVI, who has finally approved the Statutes duly revised and corrected;

      4. these two Popes have repeatedly drawn over the years the Neocatechumenal with their speeches and through the dicasteries of the Holy See, thing I proved with documents and official records of the Holy See that she does not even touch the smear;

      5. in 2012 Benedict XVI made a speech to the Neocatechumenal which is a soft-spoken but firm rebuke from start to finish, and is an official speech published and readable by anyone, including you;

      6. the reigning Pontiff recalled the Neocatechumenal several times and on key points of ecclesiology and missionary spirit of the Church, but above all he has made a definite reminder that everyone should be free to leave the Movement, and everything is documented to acts, although her, these facts and acts, Neither did they touch smear.

      Nevertheless she followed undeterred with his rhyme, but especially denying response to each kind of question that is addressed, thereby going against the facts, documents, the acts of the Holy See and the official statements of the Roman Pontiffs, This moved her to act in a spirit of irrationality that leads to misguided attempt to manipulate objective data.

      Does, in this way, to confirm the spirit humoral, irrational and closed the reasoning that I complain in my writing, instead of defending, how instead she assumed, the Neocatechumenal Way, that his interventions with these and with these its stubborn and unresponsiveness, It does nothing instead of damaging his public image?

      So I repeat the question to which she did not respond except to post another comment in which he talks about anything. In my previous response, I asked her:

      If you feel up to refute numerous witnesses, including former seminarians and priests who had approached the Way, who they reported that they felt ask the public from mega-catechists if they had never committed adultery or had recourse to masturbation? So he brings himself to reply to all of them that are just liars that make false testimonies to discredit the greatest gift given by the Holy Spirit to the Church, ie the Neocatechumenal?

      How do you see, answer this question, It is not that difficult, just replicate: all these, husbands, could, Former seminarians and priests, They are false liars who lie.
      It takes that much?

  13. Good evening Father Ariel,

    twenty-six years I follow the path is often not hide the fact that in recent years has had many doubts especially about the Eucharist. In recent months I have examined the subject, and I made the decision to leave the way because I feel guilty when I see the countless wickedness that take place in these celebrations. Standing at the consecration, the distribution of Holy Eucharist made by various people without due consideration that the Lord comes to us and the obsessive habit of clapping was for me to become a huge pain that led me not to take communion for the reason that I felt offended me from having to take the unleavened bread on the hands. Regarding the fact that the priests, on the way, They are treated flippantly confirm what she stated in her essay. At Lent ads, Easter and advent and also on other occasions to preach is the so-called super catechist while the priest is limited only to the initial and the final blessing prayer. I'm sure my decision, to leave the way, It will create problems but the Lord will support me.

  14. Thanks for what you wrote. And’ all true. I came from the so-called Way shortly before finish, after trying in vain to change it from within small. I sent them down the drain one night when our supercatechista shouted at us that we owed him absolute obedience! Other than freedom. Everything useless! And’ a sect just. Thank God, after a crisis, we are back in the Church, but the children / and no, marked by so-called catechists, by their orders and meddling in the emotional sphere…

    … I stop here, she knows what I'm talking. What abuses silent priests mother of The Redeemer I'm not surprised. But why priests, bishops and cardinals ammutoliscano in the face of overt and claimed abuses do not understand. I refer to when Kiko boasted publicly about exorcisms, to give orders to the demons and to confine. And prelates silent. Do you think I wrote twice to the appropriate congregation to report the spiritual danger which exposed the unwary followers take pride in putting mock it in direct relation with the evil. Replies? Zero. Evidently of souls cares nothing, assuming that we believe. Thanks.

    God bless you.

    1. Dear Reader,

      if you read the comments made by some priests, in one of them [veda “Don Francesco Messina”] find answer, and partly also find in my little response is to comment “Blessed are the poor in spirit”.

      I guarantee that often, I priest, They are the first victims, and even the most severely affected. Unfortunately,, in certain situations, the priest should avoid creating further divisions, losses and disputes among the members of the People of God. Nor they are missed even bishops who in the past have just prevented the Neocatechumenal to enter their dioceses, or that by themselves have expelled them.

      Do not forget that we are, however, a structure in which all proceeds from top to bottom, not vice versa from the bottom upwards, as is the ideologues believe those who speak of so-called “Basic Church”, because ours is a “Summit Church” not of “base”.

      The people that you have more on hand are first of all the priests, or rather the priests, Then the bishops. welcome, and sometimes even to seconds, contact is not difficult, what can risultarvi rather difficult to understand is that neither the priests nor bishops can act in an autonomous manner in which sometimes you'd expect faithful. I will try to clarify everything with a couple of examples: if the Holy See approves the statutes of the Neocatechumenal Way before to experiment and then definitively, even with all the necessary corrections, on which the people involved are silent, Bishop may say: “In my diocese this approval is not worth”? Or maybe you can tell the parish priest in his parish?

      The bishop for his diocese, the parish priest for the parish, They have the right to say that for pastoral reasons and for the maintenance of ecclesial communion, This movement is not welcome in the diocese or the parish? Certain, they can do it. Now, however, we set an example: the bishop is called to Rome by the relevant ministry or the Papal Secretariat where he is called to account and the reason why a Movement, Perhaps definitely problematic,This is first known to the Holy See the Neocatechumenal Way, but and in fact approved, It has not been authorized to operate in his diocese. At that point, I can tell you what I would do as bishop: I would write on the spot my letter of resignation from the pastoral governance of the diocese and would aim our feet so that is accepted immediately. Indeed, in my diocese as bishop totally weakened and effectively de-legitimized by the Holy See some bureaucrat who lives in his dream world of compromises and more compromises and the penalty paid on other people's skin, I would not go back, except as bishop emeritus dignified retired to private life, if you choose to live in my former diocese, because otherwise the win would give to those who have disobeyed the first Bishop, then they went to protest in Rome because the bishop did not listen to their desires and whims.

      The same example can be applied to the pastor called the same way by the bishop.

      If you want the second example, there he served: several bishops, in various parts of the world, and especially in Latin America, in the old days they did not want the Jesuits in their dioceses and others have just expelled them from their dioceses, motivating all in virtue of the fact that they fomented various doctrinal tendencies and socio-political. Well, say today – is an example grotesque, of course! – in these same diocese the Jesuits organize cults in Manitou revered by the Sioux tribe. Do you think one of these bishops expel them from his diocese? They were Benedictines, Augustinian, Franciscans, of Dominicans, Carmelite … and, expel them, but who would dare touch the Jesuits today, even if they were dancing around the totem praising Manitù ?

      Since she complains that she wrote to the competent department of the Holy See and that he never received response, if the thing can console – because when it comes to digestive after the hearty meal we just have to console ourselves with their misfortunes – I can tell you that long ago, because of a small group of monsignorini very much Misses, It was masterminded a bad despite in a dicastery of the Holy See, and all in flagrant and contemptuous violation of all fundamental canon law. Well you think – always to comfort – the pygmy put to chair the department in his capacity as prefect, when I wrote to him complaining about this serious and unprecedented violation of all the canonical norms, I've answered?

      If we want to throw it into a joke, place that the irony will save us, then you know that this same prefect, whose intellectual acuity is equal to his stature that does not reach the meter and a half in height, oblivious to the serious injustice done to a priest, shortly afterwards he complained to the press the way “not human” where it was received after the extradition to Italy's former ruthless murderer Cesare Battisti.

      Now, she understand: if we do not react with a touch of irony, really in danger of dying, in excruciating spasms, with liver cancer.

      As for that Bohemian eighty played by Kiko Arguello who tells how she would narrate before the bishops that he commands the Demons and I suppose cow them even with their orders, there would be enough that only one of the bishops, It equipped with only a glimmer of virility – rare commodity today! -, He had risen and had made him a pat on the head, just like any elementary school teacher would any ten year old boy taken by a fit of elation and convinced that Mac Tayson that stretches all the ground, or Francesco Totti in its full splendor football scores a goal after the other.

      A caress, it would only be a caress enough, then eighty child excited that we have seen repeatedly pontificate during the liturgical action to the presence of two hundred bishops come to the facts house of Galilee Worldwide, with paid tickets and expensed to the nines, to go to celebrate “new pharaoh” …

      Anyway, try to understand and to share with its bishops and priests perhaps a bigger ancòra of her grief, because the worst thing that can be reduced by a shepherd in the care of souls is the utter helplessness, although it is still the Eucharistic Sacrifice and offering prayer, that no one will ever take away.

      How strange, I do not know if I'm getting old, if by chance I'm almost becoming even wiser, or if I'm simply senile …

  15. Dear brother,

    Also this time you hit the, in conclusion, if I had not done the priest, you could have done the specialist in microsurgery.

    I add my poor and perhaps unnecessary comment that comes from my forty years of experience pastor.

    This movement who declined to be named movement has always been for the dioceses (I speak of those Italian) a big problem, from its earliest settlements.

    Let's face with an example: from morning till night, suddenly we passed by the faithful at the end of Mass greeted the priest kissed the hand (until the end of the '60s even early 70s) neocat the greenhorn that pointed the finger at the senior priests, saying in an imperious tone “you” … (the late 70s / early 80s).

    For the faithful or newbies a boarding, do not respect the priests, young or old they are, It is always risky, because if the priests do not feel respected in their indelible sacramental character that has turned them ontologically, it's difficult, if not impossible, do you set foot in the parishes ( or to use a father francesismo Ariel … that you do put er ass on the benches!).

    But it seems that some saint, the early 80s, It believed that the future of the church was in the movements. Some saints are not wrong, while Father Ariel explains (Deep and rightly) that even the saints can take glaring blunders without this makes them less holy or unholy.

    However, if the specific case believe this movimentista bright future of the church is the Holy Father, the bishops will have to take note and comply. And from this arise problems: many of our bishops open to neocat not because they wanted to open, but because he was made to understand, or they themselves have sought to understand, they had to open, and that's!

    Thus,Italian movimentista explosion of springtime of the Spirit, I saw in the early '80s seventy priests weep bitter tears with the Neocatechumenals that invaded the parishes, of which then became, in fact, authentic owners and managers. And what these priests complained? They complained: “pushy people … arrogant … disrespectful … ready to attack accusing the other of being closed to the Spirit, to that Spirit who spoke through them …”

    Several times the faithful from parishes ousted, or forced to flee from parishes totally neocatecumenalizzate, if they are taken to death with bishops and pastors. And then, If anything, after having made bruises were leaving (in those '80s and' 90s) to go to clap in St Peter's Square or in the classroom at the time Nervi, Today Paul VI.

    What we had to say, we bishops, pastors elderly and young priests to these faithful? Maybe that's responsible for what was one to whom went to clap in St Peter's Square or in Nervi then Paul VI Hall ?

    So, us parish priests, to hand over all, most of our bishops and the first of the bishops of the church, we were beaten by the Neocatechumenal we invaded parishes, we have not been supported by the bishops that it replicated “… She wants him”, then we were beaten by the faithful forced to flee from the Neocatechumenal parishes that had invaded and placed before an implicit choice: or become one of our or …

    Certain, the long and painful illness, I believe that “his” I have first of all purified, then really led to holiness. And I truly believe that it is holy, But the fact remains that, of errors, in this as in other cases, He has committed many, if the facts are facts and if the fruits are those products that today we have before.

    All it expressed with tender disenchantment born of faith, that as often reiterates Father Ariel is not born by emotional feelings, but by reason.

  16. God reward her dear father Ariel, for being, as they say, bread bread and wine wine, without many uncertain terms. For years, with other, Observatory on the blog on the Neocatechumenal Way, relentlessly denounce the serious deviations of this heretical sect decorated mock Catholicism, the damage it does to the psyche and the soul, the wounds it inflicts to the Church (in spite of the supposed fruits), and bullying, I profanity, the lies, scams, abuses perpetrated by many high-ranking members of the sect.
    They are more than a mafia, branched at all levels, both ecclesial and civil. They had they all talked as she talks the way today would not exist.
    Thanks again, for his zeal.

      Dear Friends,

      I thank you and especially I apologize because in truth I did not know your site, although several friends, including fellow priests, I have reported it in these two days, and little by little I'm reading it with interest.

      As Editions The island of Patmos we intend to publish as soon as possible a book that can serve as information and thus guide our faithful, limiting ourselves to report only and exclusively proven facts and rigorously documented.

      As a priest he also wrote in these public lines, It is no secret that I have for years confessor to a considerable number of my confreres, whose age is between 28 he 86 year old.

      I felt many bad fruit, and so many painful situations, both in the inner hole in which the outer hole, right in my relationship with numerous priests from their experiences with the Neocatechumenal Way were often deeply scarred and severely injured.

      I quote only one case to give you the reach of all, and it is a documented fact, although thank God not resulted either in a scandal in the press nor in a court case.

      A pastor fifty, that he tried to put them in line in the parish assigned to him, He was found to be very larvatamente but equally effective rumored to have special care for kids (!?). Needless to say: nowadays, a similar sigh, would in any knee priest, terrorizing as they say to death.

      These hints of chatter sottintendevano a clear blackmail: or do as we say, or we spoil you with two simple chatter circulated without anyone knowing about who you are and who leaked certain sighs two-way.

      The Brother spoke with me, and it was really terrified. At that point I called a few friends and lawyers together all three of the istruimmo what to do. I go to the conclusion of the fact: identified the two mega-makers catechists, these, convened in a completely informal at the local police station, Three soldiers surrendered before a private letter of apology to the priest when he was signed that the widespread larvatamente rumors were completely false; and in exchange for that letter, they were sued.

      The letter is a real and existing document, as they are still existing three carabinieri and the two lawyer friends who accompanied the priest to the police station to withdraw the letter of apology written and signed by the parties concerned.

      The soul and the conscience of a priest is a very delicate world, in which only one other priest who enjoys the full confidence of a brother, It can approach intimately with great delicacy, as on occasion I repeated to family or friends who wanted to see and greet the priests seriously ill, without being allowed to do. And when, if anything after two hours, I left the room and I met their displeasure eyes, almost as if I were in there to “to steal” around the time of others, I turned to them saying: "Always, but especially in a time like this, a priest needs another priest. Or maybe, someone of you, It is believed to be able to do, especially sacramentally, what can I do instead, entering with the tear to the eye and the hand stroking semi-cold?».

      That's why often, you lay faithful, have difficulty putting together concrete and documented testimonies of priests. Difficulties that instead I not, that the evidence and testimony we have gathered enough, unfortunately!

      Therefore, if the gentlemen in question dare, to me, disruptive actions, for example by means of that group of prelates toward them complacent, for reasons and for reasons unclear, I can guarantee that they will end “hanged” with the ropes that they themselves will be prepared.

      How did you know I consider this movement bad for the Church and for our people suffering from pain and fragility of various kinds, even without having ever denied that through this medium, vitiated by doctrinal errors and serious liturgical abuses sometimes verges on sacrilege Eucharistic, God's grace, if he wants, can lead to the salvation of souls. Nor have I ever claimed and will claim that the Neocatechumenal Movement is made up of bad people, indeed I think teeming with so many good people animated by good faith and with good intentions.

      However, it remains fixed point and usually the clear warning of the Holy Gospel:

      "So every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit; A good tree can not bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. By their fruits ye shall know them " [Mt 7, 17-20].

      And from the fruits, unfortunately, we are acknowledging this tree, that is not a healthy tree.

      I wish you every sincere and good grace from the Lord,

      Ariel, presbìtero

  17. Dear Don Francesco,

    Twenty years ago, priest from just 4 year old, after two years as assistant pastor I was appointed parish priest and assigned to a parish neocatechumenal. I had to ask for ten days the tabernacle keys reproduced in several copies from the Neocatechumenal. The eleventh day I took the Blessed Sacrament, I called a locksmith to change the lock and made him.
    They protested saying “you are not the master of the Passover bread”, It said that it was called the Eucharist and the Blessed Sacrament, I was not at all master, but but I was loyal and legitimate guardian.
    That was welcome, we can add that I had to also change the key of the canonical, because I do not even know how many copies had between them duplicate the keys.

    The introverted characters tend to internalize, with what ensues, and so, after a year and a half, priest by half past five, I asked the bishop to give me a year off because I needed to treat myself and regenerate. This request prostrated me most, I feared that the bishop thought that the first job I collapsed before the first difficulties. But the bishop was fatherly and I took off from the embarrassment telling “I am that I was wrong to send first assignment in a parish where the Neocatechumenal Way is rooted in twenty years”.

    The bishop was finally forced to appoint parish administrator of that parish a Latin American priest left the seminary Redemptoris Mater them because no priest of our presbytery wanted to go. That parish today is similar to a house meetings (the canonical), a tavern and a discotheque (the church), a collection point for people psychologically issues (indiscriminately all the local parish) …

    In the region Campania, officially,the Neocatechumenal parishes 140 circa, de facto, but, there are many more [Ed: the list of 2012 is WHO, today there are many more].
    Case in: the Diocese of Ischia. Population less than 60.000, 25 parishes (some of which are more than just another title), and these parishes 7 totally in the hands of the Neocatechumenal. What does it mean: an entire diocese in the hands of the Neocatechumenal.

    I too believe in the sanctity …”of him” and I loved him very much, I believe, to the test, that was not perfect, But I believe,to the test, that is holy, and has left us a beautiful teaching.

  18. Caro father Ariel,

    I would like to ask: it is true that the process of beatification and canonization after the council are reformed? First we wanted 4 miracles compared to 2 Today?

    1. Dear Fabio,

      I think I can respond, perhaps with some knowledge, because I am dedicated to the study first and then the Causes of Saints, before they reached relatively happy times …

      The process discipline, over the centuries, It has been subject to numerous variations. Suffice to know is that the distinction “grade” including Blessed and Saints, It has been defined only around the fifteenth century, earlier, say, Blessed or Saints, It was the same, this I can also understand the liturgical texts, where it still refers to the Blessed Apostles, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and so on.

      Today beatifications and canonizations are attributed to the Holy See that has created a special department, the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, previously it had jurisdiction of the Congregation for the rites; but especially, for many centuries, until the eleventh century around, canonizations were of competence of the bishops of the dioceses.

      The number of required miracles dependent and may vary from ecclesiastical disciplines approved or changed over time, as well as a Roman Pontiff, being supreme legislator, may, for example “dispense” a candidate for beatification and canonization by the miracle ascertained, and it happened several times recently also.

      No miracles are required for the beatification of the martyrs, because it has always, The Church, considers the miracle of martyrdom acceptance and the offering of life for the salvation of faith, the Church and the People of God.

      In the pages of Theologically L'Patmos Island can find my own studio where I explain to the public the evolution of procedures and ecclesiastical laws, can find it WHO

  19. Gentile don Ariel,

    I read his essay unnecessarily long and I have to say that I agree with Mr.. Alberto. The essay seems written by riot or by one of his so-called observers. Same slang hater, same language of contempt for the walk and especially the same editing. For me she might just blaze, but this is not my problem, but its. I do not think that will be enough 1200 characters to be able to rebut every point of his writing kilometric (riot says the same things, with the same hatred antineocatecumenale, with many fewer words), but some of these are. 1) talks about doctrinal blunders, but it is absolutely false, because the catechetical directory was approved in 2010 and it contains all the catechesis that are made during the itinerary. Among other things, the legendary giant corrections that told her and her clone blaze, never existed, because the PCL merely insert this note at bottom of page with its references to church documents.

    2) She speaks, as well as his clone, the "abuses" that there would in the celebration according to the Neocatechumenal practice and here we go again in the legendary, as there are no. They only put legends standing by those unfamiliar with the Way or denigrate those who want to satisfy his thirst for personal revenge. there are not the "homilies of the laity", but only, as approved constitution "brief commentaries on the readings". There are no "dances during the celebration", but dance (that is not the Assyrian Babylonian as she creeps, but the Davidic) begins just finished celebrating, as also evidenced by the video she posted). It is false that you receive communion seated, but instead, as approved constitution, He is receiving standing. It is false that there are steps the cup (she calls him "Coppone", but this is his problem), as it is the presbyter that passes through the faithful, who stand up, take a sip of wine and return the cup to the priest. It is false that the bread is packaged in accordance with the rules of Kiko. Kiko showed only signs to be tracked on the bread and the psalm be recited during packaging.

    as well as the names of the commentators are always the same on his blog and on to blaze (coincidentally). I said that she speaks of these testimonies "terrible", but obviously it omits to mention positive ones (oh yeah ... those are brainwashed as you call them haters). Rightly he said that John Paul II has not approved the definitive statutes, but only those "experimentally", In fact, Benedict XVI was to do so in 2008. Finally I invite you to also read all of the Popes speeches on the Neocatechumenal Way in 50 year old, not only that of Benedict XVI (famous amongst you haters, like that of 3 bend the ears, that never was so and said so in a letter next). All the talk of the Popes, by Paul VI to finish the letter of greetings to Kiko for its 80 years of Pope Francis (not "Francis I" as shown by her. But this hope was a typo).

    Anyway, to conclude, the time lost mileage to write this article, full of mistakes on the way, who obviously did not know or have known only through the writings of Father zoffoli, also packed with nonsense, in his place I would have spent in the confessional, or to evangelize. Through the Way I met many holy priests who lose their lives to evangelize. In poor countries, Congo, India, Nigeria, between mice and snakes or Europe dechristianized. Leather, humiliated and see a good priest like her, waste time doing the hater of the Neocatechumenal Way and to point the finger at the bishops and cardinals is really sad.

    I noticed that the comment is incomplete and probably when sending comments, something must not have worked and missing part, which I think must be the IV. In the next comment I will post the missing part. I apologize incident.

    PART IV.

    The bread is packaged in accordance with the general standards order of the Roman Missal, both in terms of the materials to use and the times, both the nature of the sign. We arrive to another legend, one that makes more anger, the legend “the carelessness and the dispersion of the fragments of the Eucharist”. It's false! The distribution of the Eucharistic species is always so scrupulous and manic, under the supervision of priests or deacons. In thirty years I have never seen a crumb fall into the ground and not be restored. Being in a circle, the priest who distributes the Eucharist there are always at least 100 eyes, more his. It is false that the sacred vessels are not cleansed properly, In fact, the purification is always made by Priest or Deacon or in the absence of a Deacon, the data processor and can assure you that in all the celebrations I attended, this operation takes place in an increasingly manic. You talk about some testimonials “terrible”, which then curiously they are always the same four or five, on all anticammino blog always play the same,

    1. dear Mr. Massimiliano,

      Do you mind.
      She consciously lies.
      She lied.
      You mind as mind Kiko and how they lie all the catechists and priests Neocatechumenal.
      You're lying when he says that the Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way has been approved in 2010 as it appeared. You're lying when he says that the congregation has nothing incorrect: catechists parents possess ALL volumes directory, pre and post approval.

      All Heresies previous editions have disappeared, many sentences were even completely transformed. Try to read synopsis of the first edition of catechesis on the Eucharist and approved edition. do it. And try to repeat that there have been no fixes.

      And’ obviously a rhetorical request, because, I repeat, she would continue to lie and to deny the evidence, as he was taught by his catechists “believe against reason, obey without understanding”.

      I said that her mind. Mind, because until 2005 all of the Neocatechumenal communities of the world omitted Gloria, the belief, the washbasin, l’brother, praywith, L 'Agnus Dei and Lord I'm not worthy, Kiko order and Carmen (and Farnes I presume) against the liturgical norms.

      Even today they commit serious abuses, she, lying, care.

      The Neocatechumenal celebrate stubbornly on a table, they call "mess" and never altar. Celebrate on a table even in the presence of an altar, Although, They prefer to "celebrate" in the halls, if the churches are not sufficiently neocatecumenalizzabili.
      The Neocatechumenal slavishly follow and so Trent the rubrics of Kiko: The songs, the arrangement of the chairs, the cover lectern, le penny, goblets, the menorah, the Icon of Our Lady, the processional cross etc.. everything must be strictly kikiano, and this does not compromise.

      The Offertory is nonexistent, as the celebrant says the prayers provided by the Missal as we exchange the sign of peace to the sound of "for the sake of my brothers" or "Look how beautiful" or "Evenu Shalom”. Besides Kiko he teaches that in the Mass does not offer anything to God, ergo the offertory neocatecumenale is conceived as mere "preparation of the occurrence" and does not deserve any emphasis.

      The "priest" is always singing and only the second Eucharistic Prayer as the only supreme music by Kiko, and also changes in different words of the same.

      And 'it is forbidden to kneel at the consecration in the sci-made NC (serious abuse).

      The communion is simultaneous assembly and priest (serious and forbidden by the Instruction Abuse Sacramentum she being a catechist neocatecumenale and liar, ignore.

      You're lying when he says that you receive communion standing: with a deft (but stupid) pun you able to interpret the new statutes and to make him say what they do not tell; there is no difference between "receiving" and "do" the communion. Instead you, cunning and evil, you receive it standing and sitting fairies. It is also prohibited by catechists receive Communion kneeling or on the tongue.
      Also there Menorah on the table is an abuse.

      Although the dance is an abuse, although not prohibited by the rubrics (Embee, the rubrics do not prohibit burping during the proclamation of the Gospel!).

      The shape and the bread drawings ...

      … I could go on with your serious and sacrilegious abuse. Having no time, I will just mention that in the celebrations of the Neocatechumenal Way purification of sacred vessels, It is done by laymen, moreover AFTER the blessing (usually, during the dance).

      forgot, dear Massimiliano, of finally reiterate: she MIND.

    2. Dear Massimiliano,

      I might indicate an element that seems to escape her. A little bad, on the contrary, I assure you there's nothing wrong. For it is good that provide a fundamental explanation: I'm not really a free citizen but it depends in all respects by the legitimate ecclesiastical authority which does not bind me “employment contract for an indefinite period”, but a sacrament of grace that implies that my devout and filial obedience to this same ecclesiastical authority, personified forward at all from the figure of the Bishop, upon which the valid and licit celebration of the Eucharistic Sacrifice celebrated by me to the mandate received by the Bishop and exercising my ministry in perfect communion with the Bishop in communion with Rome Vescvo. This is called “obedience”, what I, Minister bosomes, I have always respected.

      If I am what she says, namely a 'hater' then a public speaker of hate, in this case to know that in all human and moral aspects, should commit a “crime” much more serious than what could be the secret fling with a woman and then the violation of chastity to which I am bound by solemn promise to keep me celibate, which implies not the mere celibacy, but precisely chastity.

      Long before he was elected Pope Francis I, I I warned in my writings public, in my catechesis and in my sermons, that the worst sins are those that go "from the waist up," not "from the waist down,". In this regard, I have always remembered, with great theological rigor, that the queen of all the deadly sins is pride, not lust; not the case, in the list of deadly sins, pride is on the first place.

      Therefore, a priest who hates and spreading public hatred, It is by far a lot worse, but really much worse than a priest who secretly keeps a mistress.

      Questions in this regard to any bishop, or to any doctor of sacred moral theology, to confirm what I just said and written, all to clarify that, if I were the person depicted in his commentary, as soon as she should fulfill its inescapable duty of the Christian conscience: immediately notify the Ecclesiastical Authority that a priest, to say the least unworthy, It is sowing scandal among the People of God by spreading it between hatred and falsehood.

      It therefore hasten to do so, because it is a duty of the Christian conscience to which she can not and must not shirk, the more, belonging to a movement that has the Holy Spirit in your pocket and always ready for use, it should thus particularly easy esserle.

      Ecclesiastical Authority she can also produce my reply to his speech, in which I say now as follows: on the basis of what he writes and the way she writes it, she is comparable – it is only a paradoxical example to make the idea – a prostitute beating the sidewalk on Via Casilina and before a police patrol which stops in front of her and demand “ti stai prostituendo?” she answers “Are you crazy? How dare you and how dare you, I'm acting all five mysteries of the Holy Rosary. Shame on you, you are the haters of the holy apostles of the Holy Rosary!”».

      Here, she is doing the same thing, offending among other things my intelligence, which incidentally is not really my, is a gift of grace that God has given me in “comodato d'uso” and of which I will have to respond as indicated by the Parable of the Talents [Mt 25, 14-30].

      Now I'll explain why she, denying the evidence and stating that the Police “under the street lamp of Via Casilina” in truth it is only “reciting all five mysteries of the Holy Rosary”, It offends my intelligence and that of many other people:

      1. I do not write and do not ever say anything in public to hear, I speak only on the basis of documented evidence that they can be exhibited to the Ecclesiastical Authority in case you were in any way called to account and reason for what I say;

      2. I am preparing a guide for good CThe Peace sure the Neocatechumenal Way, indicating its pitfalls and mistakes, all things that can be publicly affirmed and disseminated through publications, only and exclusively through trial try;

      3. I start from the scientific principle that everything in the field of accusations and allegations can not be proven, It can not and should never be presented as true.

      That said, while she pontificates on the Holy Rosary under the streetlight Via Casilina, explaining that the Neocatechumenal Way is the essence of the liturgy orthodoxy and respect of the Holy Eucharist, I threw them – to her as to Alberto to which she does recall and that commented before her from beneath another lamppost – a public challenge to please collect, namely, the following:

      Let me call in your presence before the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and then before the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in my formulating the load of hate and false charges of spreading news against the Holy Neocatechumenal, at that point I'll answer this way:

      1. I ask that a large screen is mounted and will demand that they are viewed from beginning to end a total of 14 hours and twenty minutes of footage in which were taken, around the world, various Masses of the Neocatechumenal in which takes place every sort of abomination on Holy Eucharist;

      2. will perform in the original copy of the letters and the reports of the bishops and priests that those movies I provided them;

      3.It will produce a total of 41 hours and eight minutes recorded catechesis made by the various mega-catechists around Italy alone, inside of which are expressed, contained and diffuse the worst heresies pneumatological, Christological, Trinitarian and ecclesiological, then I will perform the original copy of the letters of those who, those recordings, I supplied it.

      At that point she will deny, with all the grace that his personal Holy Spirit will infuse, The authenticity of these video images and recorded contents of the catecheses accompanied by reports and testimonial letters.

      So you will have to prove that hours and hours of video footage that contain sequences documenting the most serious liturgical abuses and often authentic Eucharistic sacrilege, followed by dozens of hours of recordings heretical catechesis, then the letters of bishops and priests who have provided me with all these materials detailing dates, places, people, groups and above all unnecessary calls made to them over time, are all false materials, ergo I am a "hater" who spread hatred.

      I await the complaint on your part and the consequent my call at the relevant departments to account and reason of what I have written and said. All the rest, believe me: it is only the justification of a prostitute under the street lamp of the Via Casilina which belies the police stating that she is in that place to play all five Mysteries of the Holy Rosary and that is part of the holy apostles of the Holy Rosary.

      Hers, such Alberto who spoke and wrote before her, I remember and repeat that stick to this way, without considering the merits, refuting the arguments presented with the usual rigmarole "we have been approved … we have been approved …», unfortunately it implies on your part to make first of all a great disservice to the Neocatechumenal Way, before a person who speaks only and exclusively on the basis of documentary evidence and not subject to denial.

      1. Gentile don Ariel,
        She knows that nobody never denuncierei, let alone a man of God. I do not lie as he says with violence and hatred the apostate (name omen), what it was happening before the provisional statutes has been corrected and all communities celebrate under the provisions of the Holy See. It happened again to be hosted in many communities, in Italy and in Europe and I must say that you feel everywhere at home, with the celebration that takes place in the same way everywhere. So I repeat, the sacrileges abuse etc, are myths circulated by those who hate the Way.
        She says she would do a great disservice to the Way. But I'm not defending the Way, how could I? The Way defends Christ and His Church, enjoying good fruit. The conversion, seminars worldwide, infertile marriages that start with joy to life, families who leave their safety to evangelize in places don have never heard of Jesus Christ. Rather dear Father Ariel, I would think good on the service that makes the priestly ministry, if he spends much of his time with finger pointing.

    3. Dear Massimiliano C. ,

      firmarsi “Don Andrea” means nothing, and I had my way I would put (as my use), name, surname, cities and even tax code. I do not do it for two reasons: the first, because I am the principal of a higher institute of religious sciences, and even repeat it in every language known to me that I speak only for myself, I risk to involve my institution, I can not do; the second, why can not I engage my archdiocese and my Archbishop.

      I'm not a fantasy nik, Ariel's father, who for years knows me deeply and that carries on with impeccable professionalism this useful magazine, is the first witness to what.

      Here's the story …

      The Archbishop entrusts me a small parish near the center of our institute of religious sciences, I am hoping that as a theologian able to put in line the catechists of the Neocatechumenal that in that context had to 25 years their staff. Li summoned for a series of reflections taken from me, which not only did not accept, because when I touched the dogmatic aspects of faith, in a manner insolent and brash came to laugh in my face.

      knowing thank God to be able to count on the support of my archbishop (all obvious thing for a priest!) I began shortly after with the prohibitions: 1) put anything on Saturday night with the exception of the faithful, 2) no private Masses in the parish halls, 3) nothing Masses celebrated in the church on a table set up on the altar instead of consecrated, 4) anything “introductions” and “resonances” who were then in fact true homilies, especially stuffed with serious doctrinal errors.

      Part of their protest at the archbishop who even receives them and which assigns them to the Vicar General, who was verbally assaulted when he said that the provisions are dictated by the parish priest in accordance with the diocesan ordinary.

      Not being able to do as he pleased, Neocatechumenals abandon the parish, but without finding priests of other parishes willing to give in use the parish hall for catechesis and private Masses celebrated behind closed doors between them.

      On my account start running rumors about alleged moral flaws and violations related to the sixth commandment. I had a lot of trouble to convince two precious collaborators of the institute of religious sciences not to resign from their positions. One managed to convince her, thanks to the help given by her husband, the other I could not convince her. For those who have not understood … were my lovers (!?).
      When one was, the other went, rumor was that my two lovers had quarreled with each other out of jealousy (!?).

      I worked for years with these collaborators, it's more, but raw, He was issued a single sigh, everything broke loose after my friction with the Neocatechumenals. Let's say that this is pure coincidence.

      These people portrayed as so zealous and respectful of all rules from Mr.. Massimiliano, in complete disobedience to the bishop began to use the halls of a local hotel, doing come rolling two priests Neocatechumenals from outside the diocese, emerged from Redemtoris Mater, provided that no ordinary diocesan approval celebrating private masses in unconsecrated places. For the uninitiated we clarify that no priest from another diocese who is not authorized can exercise the sacred ministry in the canonical territory of another bishop, liturgies celebrating species not satisfying the liturgical books and in unconsecrated space.

      Taking my father the answer Ariel and player “Tomista ex NC”, I must tell, Themselves. Massimiliano, that things are in two terms, where one excludes the other: a lei, as it has been said, consciously lies, or, as perhaps can be, instead she belongs to another Neocatechumenal, compliance with the provisions of the bishops, those of parish priests, the liturgical books etc. .. etc. …

      When after a few months the chancellor Archbishop notified to the two priests who were not allowed to celebrate in the diocesan territory without the authorization required, They ceased their celebrations, and a month later, when the archbishop went to a parish to administer Confirmations, the churchyard a group of people, without reason and reason, He yelled as he entered “Judah” and “clown”. Also this, but, is no coincidence, because how can you explain Mr.. Massimiliano, ever, the Neocatechumenal put in row, They would lack of respect to a bishop.

      Know that you are one of several priests who with their name, surname , address and even tax code, Ariel's father has provided a report to 30 pages where I summarize the whole story in my capacity as eyewitness.

      1. Dear Father Andrea,

        Not by the merits of his experience, not knowing the other also “Bell”, but from what I told you in fact allowed them to do the Way. According to the statutes of the Way it has precise rules, I would say “statutizzate” and the rules she had imposed, in fact, they did not ensure the continuation of the journey as it is. A little bad, it may happen that after the bishop “who loves” the way in his diocese, can change their minds, or a collaborator has any reserves towards this “gift of the Holy Spirit”, as he called him the Holy Father. A little bad, If the Way you can not do in his parish, there will be another who will welcome you and will make possible its smooth conduct. But I think, which of you priests there are many prejudices towards the Neocatechumenal Way. Perhaps because it is inconvenient, because it is the wee hours, long celebrations, but I assure you that the benefits drawn from them, compared with some inconveniences are many more. The fruits of conversion, openness to life and especially to repay by far the few sacrifices faith.

        1. Dear Massimiliano,

          the Way I know nothing apart from the personal knowledge of some Neocatechumenal, They have always seemed good people and with whom I never had anything to say.

          But don Andrea wrote of having imposed the following prohibitions:

          1) put anything on Saturday night with the exception of the faithful,
          2) no private Masses in the parish halls,
          3) nothing Masses celebrated in the church on a table set up on the altar instead of consecrated,
          4) nothing "introductions" and "resonance" that were then in fact true homilies….

          She said that Don Andrea, de facto, thus it is forbidden to do the Way. I believe that anyone did not know anything, like me, This offering an insight fairly reliable. Even assuming that Don Andrea is wrong on the serious doctrinal errors, What however improbable, It is not even her doubt, rereading the above, that there may be some problems a little’ sometimes more serious than do the small hours?

          to me, ignorantly, It seems to be almost the institution of another church. Even without denying the possibility of positive results, however, that no one here has denied, it seems to me

          1. Dear Klaus,
            The article 13, comma 2 of the Statute states that the neocatechumens celebrate the Sunday Eucharist “in the small community, after the first vespers of Sunday”, that is, on Saturday night. These celebrations, while it is also part of the Parish and then open pastoral to other faithful, I think they can not lose its nature “the small community”. So I guess it is the discernment of the parish priest or persons responsible for distributing the faithful who request, in several communities. If for “no private Masses in the parish halls”, means “nothing made for a few”, then you understand that you go out in Article 13 comma 2 (celebrated in small communities).
            The introductions and resonances (short) They are prescribed by statute. Sometimes you may exceed, but in that case the priest can stop the brother who exceeds (It happens to us).
            I have not dared to say that Don Andrea is wrong on doctrinal errors (of which I have spoken), Instead I said elsewhere that the catechetical directory was approved.
            On the fact that sometimes you do the small hours, I can tell you to do a celebration without the pressure of time and clock…

  20. Caro father Ariel,

    He wrote in his kind reply: “…that Bohemian eighty played by Kiko Arguello who tells how she would narrate before the bishops that he commands the Demons…”.

    Tolga well as the conditional! I point the link to Youtube Kiko hear where it claims to do more and exorcisms and cast out demons and to have received a "sign" from the Holy Spirit (minute 07,52) to always speak by divine inspiration (minute 15,40) and calls “of left”of priests guilty of daring to challenge it whistling (minute 13,55).

    He knows that Carmen boasted of being appealed by Madonna “blessed are you among women” and he has been commissioned to rebuild the Church ? It was also the site of the Way.

    Believe me, a lot of neocat the ape trying to do too exorcisms. Is it possible that even that could shake up the congregation? And I was not the only one to write. I understand the difficulties of the priests with the Way, but their silence in the polls when catechists violate consciences and destroy people. They are responsible for the souls.
    Thanks again for the good he does.

  21. Caro father Ariel,

    thank you very much for this his masterful masterpiece, I'm taking care to spread among the priests who know.

    I am the son of the Neocatechumenal, grown in Kiko head (I have never been taught to kneel during the consecration, genuflettermi in front of the Tabernacle and discovered Eucharistic adoration as an adult). In 13 years I have been forced to begin the journey, I abandoned after 16 years for spiritual reasons, theological and liturgical. I took ten years to make this difficult decision, because I had the illusion that they can change the path from the inside.

    In CN I have been humbled, continually silenced (by parents and catechists) and psychologically destroyed. I was a catechist and singer, and passed through hell whenever azzardavo me not to uniformarmi Kiko thought- (One intellect of the way, avveroisticamente intended): my knowledge of the Catechism and Sacred Theology were regarded as forms of pride and spiritual pride, my love for the Holy Mass and for the respect of the liturgical books for self-righteous and hypocritical legalism, my love for the Holy Mass and for the respect of the liturgical books for self-righteous and hypocritical legalism, my attempt to give liturgical chant a certain decorum for perfectionism and hysteria and Carib (I was once reprimanded for having kneeling during the Eucharistic Prayer, because it did not respect the assembly ... one more time for composing songs, because "we the living charisma!!! You're nobody to make songs! Kiko has not composed anything, He has just discovered the music that has the Word of God when it comes out of his mouth!!! If you think you know you are proud!!).

    When I communicated catechists my decision to leave the way, They threatened me as boss Cosa Nostra: "The devil will destroy your marriage!! God has called you in the Way, and if you leave you're turning your back on God!!!”

    My Perdoni will keep l'anonymity, But being a teacher of Catholic religion, I do not care to see me revoked the suitability for their criminal retaliation.

    My parents and catechists treat me as an apostate, deceived by the devil, who has lost all discernment, and especially can not stand that I have a priest as Spiritual Director.

    In greet, I ask you to remember all of us former Neocatechumenal in prayer, but above all in the Holy Mass.
    Finally I ask an opinion on these two items, written by me:



    Praised be Jesus Christ

  22. Massimialiano C., I was going to read his comments in which needlessly wordy, as is usual between you kikobots, refutes decades of documented evidence of a piteous serqua “it's not true”, “I never happened”, but I had to stop immediately the first lie from peanuts: the approval of the Executive Board.
    1) the approved volumes have secrets, because you have done so many and such pressures to make such, unique case in the history of the Church, so the approval does not make sense to exist, whereas that document included the publication of the volumes.
    2) the original texts were so unorthodox that I have virtually rewritten it from scratch, and in some places even they have deleted entire sections, as in the case of “comment” epileptic possessed of your guru heretic present in the volume of tra.
    Therefore, what are we talking about?
    3) The dance is not the liturgical? Maybe we want to warn about the Gnostic dinner with milk and honey celebrated by way of Eucharist, within your set during the first week of Easter?

    1. Dear bps,
      What should I tell her any more than we said on fb or blog. As proof of what I said to Don Ariel said that, that there are many experiences or former, you are always the same. As you see on this blog are the same haters. See Don Ariel? Where are all these negative experiences? They are always the same ten people, simply multiply their time on the internet to speak ill of the way for reasons of personal hatred.
      Bps, the ritual of which he spoke, It was approved along with all the rites contained in catechetical directory.
      There was not any “rewrite” of catechesis, but simply the footnotes of explanatory page that bring to church documents.

      1. No, No, just rewritten. The original texts (I from first to last) They were altered in the edition 2010. Other than footnotes page! But there are none so deaf as those who will not hear, so you are responsible for your condemnation.

      2. Massimiliano C., I answer on both points:

        The first: we are always the same haters, up to a dozen people…
        Mistake that it is so well. Few of you are writing assiduously, but we spokesman for many who do not intervene; that means nothing.
        We have repeatedly analyzed the “drift” of the way and how it is drying to the source. As long as they can continue to wave numeroni nonexistent? …shouting: Miracles! Impressive!…to pull the wool over the eyes to the unsuspecting walkers who, over time, They are increasingly savvy?
        This applies to catechesis in parishes, for vocations to fill too many seminars around the world…
        The details you can find them all in the numerous articles of “Observatory” on these issues.

        Second: no "rewriting", but only notes.
        Namely, the notes would be made ONLY to confirm the orthodoxy of catechesis. It gives us a surprising confirmation: Kiko and travel intentionally lie to walkers as the one you carry over is the popular version by the way leaders in communities. Confirming that do not accept correction and are determined to disobey…

  23. I confirm, if proof were needed, As stated by former NC Tomista in his reply to “Massimiliano” of 14.07. First I confirm that Massimiliano consciously lies.

    I started back in the catechesis 1990 yet even when the statutes were talking.
    In the Eucharistic celebrations (commissioning) They were omitted Gloria, the belief, the washbasin, l Prayers, O Lord, I am not worthy to be the Lamb of God 's e U L', The Creed was beginning to recite (just always sung the same way… I-ooo…) only after the end of Redditio, and if they celebrated together two or more communities, and even one of them had not made the Redditio, and therefore he had not received (SIC!) the belief, This was omitted altogether.
    I confirm that all the furnishings and liturgical instrumentario must be strictly of the way. I confirm that the offertory is nonexistent, it is simply a transfer of the occurrence for the elevation from the canteen service small table (no altar, that is non-existent). forbidden to bow. If someone did, it would be so much rejected and rebuked you would not dare repeat the gesture.

    I continue to confirm the veracity of the allegation made by Tomista ex CN in its response to the Massimiliano 14.07. Until the approval of the statutes of the Eucharist is received and consumed seated sitting after the priest or other person (strictly male, even without a specific training) He had distributed a piece of unleavened bread at all. After the distribution and before the consummation of the bread, only the priest said, "The body of Christ keep us for eternal life, to the congregation responded "Amen". After approval has been re-introduced the Agnus Dei, and the recitation of the formula "Lord, I am not worthy .... but 'just a word, and I shall be healed ". Communion is received only standing, but it continues to be consumed together with the priest after the distribution to all. In fact, there stands up for a few seconds just to get his hands on a piece of bread by the priest or his. In practice it is a farce, a kind of sop to the church authorities.
    With regard to bread, I do not know if it follows "General ordination norms of the Roman Missal", but I know that to those who must prepare is given ...

    1. Paola, as I said above, the approval of the statutes and of catechetical directory, He has radically changed the Way, so what it was once just a pass on things orally, now everything “statutizzato”, so the mistakes that were made, Now you can no longer do. I, too, have joined in the walk 1990 and I lived on my skin this change. I remember that we were scared of the changes introduced, but instead they have been a blessing. I do not know since I do not witness a celebration with the Neocatechumenal communities, but now (actually a 15 ina years) It is exactly like a regular Mass, so much so that by the statutes, Mass has entered in fact in the service of the parish that welcomes the Way. It is open to all, Come and see for yourself.

      1. But really?
        Now “the celebration with the Neocatechumenal communities”
        “It is exactly like a regular Mass”?

        So first it was a tune-normal?

        So respected to the letter Liturgical Books? Go in procession to receive Communion with the Host and with the same mode of distribution that we see in our Parishes?
        Finally you have sorted the provisions of the Letter Arinze? Now that's news! In fact there had been granted two years, only two, by the 2005. But as they say? Better late than never.


        1. Pax face,

          The statutes of the Neocatechumenal Way, to the number 13, comma 3 says:

          “as regards the distribution of Holy Communion under both species the neocatechumens receive standing, remain in place”.

          Then as I said in another comment:

          “As for the matter of the Eucharist, The general regulation of the Roman missal to the point 320 recital: "Bread for the celebration of the Eucharist, It must be exclusively of wheat, packaged recently and unleavened, according to the ancient tradition of the Latin Church ". So how do you see, there is no mention Ostia, which over the centuries it has been adopted for obvious practical situations from church, but bread”.

          Then in step 321 dell'ogmr says: the nature of REQUIRES sign that matter THESE REALLY IS AS FOOD.

          Then at the end of this article reads:

          “the gesture of breaking bread, in which the Eucharist was in apostolic time, It brings out more clearly the force and importance of the sign of the unity of all in the one bread and the sign of charity, the fact that "ONE BREAD IS DISTRIBUTED AMONG THE BROTHERS”


          1. So it is not true that the Neocatechumenal celebration ” now (in fact for fifteen years) It is exactly like a regular Mass” !

            The truth is that to ensure compatibility fixes and we do not even think, Instead of obeying the Church, continue to exhibit your arbitrary and partial interpretations of the Roman Missal (as you do with the Word of God) to legitimize your outlandish practices. After years of violent raids of Carmen at the Vatican you have got Arinze's letter that you have subtly undermined.

            That "Holy Communion under both kinds the neocatechumens receive standing, remaining in place "does not mean that you are allowed to get back you sat holding my bread to eat it all together to the priest who presides, he sat, after deployment. This is your arbitrary behavior perpetuated by stubbornly and woe origins who you touch it. Ditto for the distribution of wine, made a second round. Far from being the Body and Blood of the One Christ sacrificed for us, for you are two signs, separate and distinct, one of slavery-death-resurrection of freedom the other.

  24. I continue to confirm the veracity of the allegation made by Tomista ex CN in its response to the Massimiliano 14.07. Until the approval of the statutes of the Eucharist is received and consumed seated sitting after the priest or other person (strictly male, even without a specific training) He had distributed a piece of unleavened bread at all. After the distribution and before the consummation of the bread, only the priest said “The body of Christ bring us to everlasting life, to the congregation he responded “amen”. After approval has been re-introduced the’Agnus Dei and the recitation of the formula “Lord, not worthy…. But say’ just a word, and I shall be healed”. Communion is received only standing, but it continues to be consumed together with the priest after the distribution to all. In fact, there stands up for a few seconds just to get his hands on a piece of bread by the priest or his. In practice it is a farce, a kind of sop to the church authorities.

    With regard to bread, I do not know if it follows “General ordination norms of the Roman Missal”, but I know that to those who must prepare is given… [Ed. incomplete sentence, missing a piece of text, It was not cut by the editorial staff]

    The bread is prepared according to a precise recipe on how to prepare and drawings to do. You may only use flour type 00. I do not know if the preparation of such bread follow "the general ordination norms of the Roman Missal", but I know that this bread is made and used as a "host" only in the Neocatechumenal Way. However, I must point out that you actually care not to spill as much bread crumbs, either during or after the consummation of the Eucharist, during the "purification". Purification but I have NEVER seen it done by a priest or a deacon, but only by managers, porters or other person strictly male.
    Another thing of which you are not told, but which I believe is planned in the statutes is that at least once a month to celebrate the Eucharist with the parish community, then in a Mass open to tutti.Tali celebrations, when they are not open all. First are made fully Neocatechumenals, only celebrated in church. But the doors of the church are always strictly closed and always leads somewhere side entrance, so that from outside no one can guess that the church will take place in ... [Ed. incomplete sentence, missing a piece of text, It was not cut by the editorial staff]

    Finally, one thing that struck me very (very negatively) and perhaps I find one of the poisoned fruit of the way, an aberration is the rejection and repudiation suffered by some former NC by their parents, that should be the people we love the most. I am referring both to Tomista ex CN that the two former seminarians mother of The Redeemer, now pastors, who gave their testimony. These are phenomena that characterize totalitarian regimes or sects such as the Jehovah's Witnesses. What one fails to mother and no longer love and her son away just because it came out the way I find it an aberration gravissima.Spero for them that God will open your eyes to these parents and make them review and apologize to the children while there is still time (alive).It is for you, children treated neither more nor less than as outcasts, I implore the infinite love of God, that can help to soothe these wounds perhaps irremediable. For my part I can not understand but only remotely imagine your suffering, but I will remember you in my prayers. I was fortunate to be the only one in my family of origin on their way and this helped me to always keep a look ...

    1. Mrs. Paola,
      The general organization of the Roman Missal, to the point 320 recital: “bread for the celebration of the Eucharist, It must be exclusively of wheat, packaged recently and unleavened, according to the ancient tradition of the Latin Church”. So how do you see, there is no mention Ostia, which over the centuries it has been adopted for obvious practical situations from church, but bread.
      Then in step 321 dell'ogmr says: the nature of REQUIRES sign that the matter
      Then at the end of this article reads: the gesture of breaking bread, in which the Eucharist was in apostolic time, It brings out more clearly the force and importance of the sign of the unity of all in the one bread and the sign of charity, for the fact that “ONE BREAD IS DISTRIBUTED AMONG THE BROTHERS”
      I believe I need not add anything to what he says the general organization of the Roman Missal.

  25. On the fraudulent approval think of the fact that the Statute was approved BEFORE Directory. In other words, approved a statute based on still sub judice catechetetici texts and then proved crammed with heresies and blunders. Strange process, true?

    A Massimiliano which repeats the usual lies parrot, I remember all the main disobedience to your Constitution and the Missal:

    1- in the preparatory team MUST be the priest and there is never;

    2- admonitions and environment are the exception and not the rule;

    3-Eucharist: ONLY you can stand up in your place. You should tell AFTER the priest and each individually immediately received the Bread and not all together;

    4-Purification: Only the priest can do it, deacon or an instituted acolyte, and instead it provides ostiarius or responsible.
    I confirm the abuses listed by Paola. I witnessed.

    Not to mention the obligation of the tithe, the claim of catechists to give orders of consciousness, freedom, family, sexuality, work, children, goods and so on, the sins confessed publicly in ruthless ballots.

    Massimiliano, Jesus forgave all but the hypocrites. You and regulator… [Ed. incomplete sentence, missing a piece of text, It was not cut by the editorial staff]

  26. Dear Massimiliano
    My ex-brother in faith neocatechumenal.
    You say that in catechetical directory of Neocatechumenal Way approved in 2010 the Church there is nothing correct but there is only a few notes taken by the CCC .
    Well, I think that what you say does not correspond to the truth.
    We can solve this thing very easily, do so and ways to publish all the Catechetical Directory so all of us haters professionals we can think again and embrace the new aesthetic Neocatechumenal again.
    See how easy it is!!!!

    1. Dear Luca,
      As you well know, the article 8 of the Statute of the Neocatechumenal, states that the route is divided into stages, with its celebrations and catechesis for each stage. I think it's so obvious, catechetical directory that can not be published and accessible to all, but only “insiders “, catechists, pastor, bishop etc.. An advice, Ask your pastor to be able to inspect, I should welcome your inquiry.

      1. Dear Massimiliano,

        My pastor has no catechetical directory of the Neocatechumenal Way.

        I wrote to the Pontifical Commission for the Laity, and they told me to ask the Neocatechumenal Way.

        I went to your location in Via del Mascherino in Rome, and they told me that the volumes are not for sale but can be bought at 10 euro a volume, only by the Neocatechumenal catechists but volume on the stage that should bring to their communities.

        Massimiliano, but what “insiders” We were talking.

        You're the only Neocatechumenal movement born after Vatican II that you have a “private catechism” inaccessible to the Christian people.

        Massimiliano you are the only movement that produces 4 documents the year that are repeated only and exclusively behind closed doors between you, without any approval of the Church and no publication.

        I speak of the beginning of the year catechesis and the catechesis of the Church strong times, ie Advent,Christmas, Lent and Easter.
        In 50 I speak of years of walking 200 reserved and segregated documents that will sing and you will play among YOU.

        Massimiliano when you start to do serious?

      2. Dear Massimiliano,
        On the statute there is no article that explains the Catechetical Directory should be segregated.
        If the Neocatechumenal Way was a serious movement would stop doing these little games of the three cards with the Church and with people.
        There are no secrets authentic documents and segregated.
        There are no reference documents of movements that are not public and published.
        What are you hiding and those who are hiding?
        Why do you refuse to make fun of people.
        If you have a document produced by your founder, where there is all the doctrine of the movement because you are afraid to publish.
        And do not tell me you ruined the surprise to your followers, because it becomes ridiculous.
        You decline the comparison, Rejected transparency, rejected the clarity towards the people, Your steps are an open secret
        If not published, corroborated the suspicion that the paper you use is not what you approved the Church.
        There is clear the problem?
        Massimiliano to me that's fine too , be conspiratorial and liars is perhaps the best way to turn people away.
        It could be something good. Sin,you are a wasted opportunity!!!…

        1. Dear Luca,
          Really on the Statute do not even written by many volumes make up the directory and even the type of paper used. I do not understand this controversy. The Neocatechumenate, with the latest statutes, It is also used as “adult catechumenate”, so I do not see what the problem is whether the documents relating to the catechumenate, They are usable only by experts. There is surely nothing to hide, since they are documents held by competent ecclesiastical organs, of the parish priests and catechists, but especially, if in case of catechesis or passages, they are made aware of the neocatechumens (or catechumens). It can not then be any suspicion that the documents used for catechesis, other than those approved, simply because the same documents the pastor has them and the parish priest or his assistant is always present during the Catechesis. If they were “secreted”, as you say mischievously, would not be in possession of any.

          1. Dear Massimiliano.

            I told you that the Catechetical Directory is not in possession of my pastor is not even his collaborators. They only catechists of the Neocatechumenal Way, and not even all but volume on the stage that are enabled by their catechists to bring only orally in the community at their assigned.

            During these catechesis can not make recordings you can not even take notes or ask questions.

            You have to just listen and there is just one-way communication, the catechist speaks and listens to the catechumen unrelated or explanation of the content served up.

            The catechist is called to carefully follow the Catechetical Directory that goes learned almost by heart. It does so because the catechist requires no religious preparation, doctrinal or liturgical, to become catechists enough to be rated by the community and have a listen to the catechesis report its catechumens.

            That's why applications are not accepted because the average catechist can not answer, only knows the way and the catechesis which must contain and Kiko nothing else.


          2. Dear Massimiliano
            Another great genius idea of ​​your Lord and master Kiko Arguello was to not even define how many books of catechetical directory, so can continue undeterred adding stages of stages in its infinite path to nowhere.
            Article 22 Statute Continuing Education:

            "The Neocatechumenal communities: persevering in the weekly celebration of the Word and of the Sunday Eucharist and fellowship actively inserted into the pastoral work of the parish community, Unity of love to give signs'

            But who sees them to church on Sunday and in the pastoral parish of love and unity, continue on their behalf and under the command of catechists even after they have finished the path.

            Other than the parish renewal.


          3. I intervene calmly expressing that I appreciate Mr.. Massimiliano (and I say this without irony, with genuine sincerity). I appreciate the passion with which he defended on one side, But not giving satisfactory answers from the other. And always reiterating my sincerity devoid of any irony, I think he deserves all the respect due to a court-appointed lawyer who finds himself defending a thief arrested with the stolen goods in the hands of the police after the security cameras were shooting from start to finish all of the robbery scene. That thief needs of defense, and must be defended. And since most lawyers have refused, The task fell to the lawyer office, to which, I repeat, It must render all the honor of the event, because he deserves it.

            I am a priest ambrosiano. I've never been owner pastor because I work as a canon lawyer activity in some diocesan offices, the defender of the bond and the teaching of this subject. With this various kinds of commitments I could not hold a parish, But I've always lived in the parish, and added parochial vicar.

            Dear Father Ariel mentions, in his work, our late Bishop, card. Carlo Maria Martini, narrating that the Neocatechumenal Way in the diocese, did not like them. He said the real, and other details should be added, But better to avoid doing so. I can say, anyway, that our diocese of Milan is a somewhat’ particular, because it has its own rite (the Ambrosian) which typically, all the priests, by so-called conservatives to progressives, They are rather jealous. And this was a big problem, the Way, which in fact claims the use of a … “rite”.

            Our diocese has more than 1.100 parishes for a number of faithful than 5 million and, if I do not go astray, in the city of Milan, parishes where the Neocatechumenal is present, they are 3 the 4. This already makes it clear throughout: de facto, this movement, by us is non-existent. Multiple attempts were made over time and with more priests, This is my personal experience: when they came to the pastor of my parish of residence of “itinerant catechists”, the priest said that we were not a mission land and that our diocese has sent missionaries to the world since the time of St. Charles Borromeo, and which still has a considerable number of its priests in various mission lands.

            They changed register and, after a few months, They reappeared, and they did it in another way. That was when the pastor asked me to see clearly and deeply, first of all by a canonical point of view. First of all, ask to be able to see their statutes but above all the texts of the approved catechism. To answer all introduced me to the decree of the Pontifical Council for the Laity who in 2012 He approves the statutes. I said again that I did not watch a decree, instantly available on the website of the Holy See, but the texts in their statutes and especially the catechism adopted and approved by the Holy See. Tergiversarono in various ways, reaffirming (as I read in various interventions in this discussion page), they had been approved and had been promoted by the church and by the popes. But it, these statutes and above all the texts of the approved catechism, They never jumped out, and they never were exhibited.

            I can testify that there have been various other similar attempts with several other parishes in Milan, and several other pastors have turned to me, knowing that I have been involved on several occasions in the past the various legal aspects of lay movements. All approached parish priests have asked the statutes and above all the texts of the approved catechism, all received the same answers, and none were given.

            I can only conclude by saying that anyone who comes to me and ask me to esibirgli the Code of Canon Law, I take the code and tell him I perform, and, if someone tells me he wants to read it, or tell him where he can buy, or, in a gentle way, I offer him a loan,telling him to take care to give it back when you have read.

            So these statutes but above the approved texts of the catechism, where they are available? I do not care to read them, and he does not even cared to different parishes of which I said above, but if a lay movement demand to enter into a parish and of taking for its activities of a parish, It must consider that it is moving, how it is structured and organized, what are your goals written black on white and above, having an approved catechism, what kind of catechetical line follows. This fact does not say and does not explain a decree of approval of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, which by the way does not indicate at all: “They are approved, take them sight unseen!”. Paragraph? Otherwise, It would be enough to take the decree of approval of a law, and to enforce the law without knowing the text of the law, but only its decree of approval.

            Don Giovanni da Milano

  27. I remained in silence after reading his splendid masterpiece, dear Father Ariel.
    It amazed me as an immense, unexpected long-desired gift but that more can not be believed now receive.
    I feel the overwhelming need to make them reach the deepest expression of my immense gratitude.
    I thank God that he allowed to devote so much time to this meritorious work.
    Its biggest advantage is that you are a priest, Finally!

    From the father's time Zoffoli lacked an outlet of such net position, put pen to paper.
    For years, we fight alone (I also collaborate to Blog "in truth Observatory on C.N."), so I thought, with great sadness that just our Pastors, at all levels, they left us alone.
    Very we owe to Tripudio that always has been spent on this mission to make "Truth" without ever having personally part of the Way, as Lino List, He died recently and, I'm sure, He continues with his prayers to support us.

    I also witnessed the futility (related?) of all our complaints to parish, Bishops, Cardinals, Congregations and even the Pope himself.

    I read that she, in support of his claims, a rich archive of experiences of priests who have signed and certified their testimonies. This comforts me and restores me hope. One of the greatest pains with which I had to live it was the sense of abandonment by those who had to take care of the flock from wolves ravaged with impunity under their eyes and see the complicity of some shepherds with the wolves themselves, very able to dress up as sheep, or to bribe - if necessary - with economic or insurance ecclesiastical promotions sinecures (This also were able, and I am a witness).

    I'm not intervened so far in order not to write freely as I could and possibly adding very little.

    This is why I started with the "silence" expression but I'm ready, for my part - I want to tell him - to intervene if any were needed to support and sustain what she says from the clergy, one way or another, It had to do with the Neocatechumenal Way. Namely, I am ready to confirm, with my thirty years of experience in the journey, who brought me up to pay for a long time a catechist service in the midst of travel, under the direct guidance of Kiko and Carmen, so that I was able to "learn" firsthand. So I do not speak from hearsay.

    For years I have known no avail inability to change things from within, until I realized that nothing had to be changed because the journey is rotten to her and the seed that generated it is not that of the Good Sower, but the devil disguised as an angel of light. It is now a long time since Kiko threw the mask and only his associates, who they like him for that gain from this shameful Ambaradan, or her lobotomized followers and reduced to slavery perfect - in a kind of addiction from which they are afraid to go out - are doing their utmost in giving evidence to still believe in him.

    But doubts creep, an increasing malaise spreads and nothing happens, since all these unfortunates would ideally like to take out alone while continuing on the carousel of kikolandia that keeps them from looking at the reality of life of which they are afraid and in which now they would move as total misfits. Which is why many of the exiles end up on the couch to psychiatrists and psychoanalysts who can not find cure. Nice way for adults! Beautiful training, I do not say to form "adult Christians" but only "mature men".
    I stop here.

    Only two points I want to emphasize and bring out:

    1. The threatened complaints in extremis.
    They are ridiculous clowns. When the battle comes the last act put you in front of the formidable specter of the complaint. I had the honor of hearing addressed this threat by Kiko imbestialito.
    To this day I'm still waiting, because I told him that I was really happy with this decision and that I could not wait to race against him and Carmen before the competent offices (the complaint to the Holy See was to focus, to begin, on the refusal to obey).

    Needless to clarify, but I do the same, who was careful not to sue, as always! For our part we have forwarded many times and so exposed to the Holy See, without ever being summoned and without ever receiving any response in writing.

    2. Here we enter the second point:

    It is surprising, but maybe not, given the subject in question: while on the one hand, as it was easy to predict, no complaint has ever playing their part in us (mica are fools!) - departed, instead, and go and sign a number of "slander" of any kind against our people, especially aimed at tarnishing morally. adultery, twin crises and their children, stragglers children, obviously, swallowed by the world around ....

    That's their modus operandi. This is seedy and - this yes - established "practice of the Neocatechumenal Way". On other words it does not spend. The Lord himself has defended and preserved us, making us walk among snakes and scorpions. Giving us strength to rebuild a shattered life that was all geared to the journey, the Lord has sustained us and blessed, and today everything is much better than when we were with them and not imagine what it would be today if we had remained in their midst! I get goose skin and pity those who know very well and is still there.

    I add only that I am painful witness, especially with regard to parish priests and even bishops who considered "enemies" they have fielded and always on time this strategy of slander. For some it was put about the rumor that had been the lover (who then promptly he was the one who commanded in the parish .... that's why the way "holy" was persecuted ... Obviously the "great whore"!) for other, worthy of a more refined treatment, the worst voice (lie) they put around was that they were pedophiles, cunningly practice against the boys or girls.
    But look a little; only to discover that among their greatest friends and powerful patrons are just the most famous serial of shame pedophiles who prowl in the Church!
    Excuse my speech.

    Thanks for everything and thanks again, on behalf of all those like me, that many wounds, inflicted by the ruthless way kikiano / carmeniano, They had to care, and we are many!


  28. Good morning Don Ariel,
    They Massimiliano and I apologize if I rise again. I am given that yesterday I sent a response to Mrs. Paola accusing me of being a liar and did not see the publication of the message. Anyway, I wanted to invite you to look into the blog observatory and observe the fruits of hatred instilled through his post. As you can see, I am subjected to a lynch, absolutely in absentia, only for expressing my opinion on his blog. That's what I meant yesterday, if we create division among Christians, these are the fruits that we collect and we are certainly bearers of peace. Bringing but Division, inimicizie, I hate and just. I greet you and thank you.

    1. After his alert was entered, It did not depend on us, but by the fact that his text was made from pieces sent several times by sticking together.
      If what is published is not correct you send it back we correct or insert.

      Thank you very much.

  29. A Massimiliano
    Apostate because by that they treated me when I left.
    hate,violence? Ever since my former kikatekisti with unfortunates who were crying during the fierce ballots. If you look real hatred, catechists say that does not give the tithe because he did alms, I will hate!
    What do you think of Kiko exorcist and those who imitate? Ask a real exorcist what it means.
    Statute approved? Without hate wonder: she obeys the Church?
    More precisely, according to the Statute :
    In the group of preparation there must always be a priest.
    Yellow Cards, environmental and resonances are held only in exceptional cases and not always.
    The celebration should be open to all, your parish's timetable?
    Use an altar, with candles “normal” ?
    The Communion do it AFTER the priest and everyone immediately received the Bread?
    Purification makes the priest, deacon or an instituted acolyte?
    Do thanks at the end instead of the Ballet?
    Last question. because liturkikia is untouchable and no Liturgy?
    He obeys his community to… [Ed. incomplete sentence, missing a piece of text, It was not cut by the editorial staff]

  30. For Massimiliano
    No one is lynching. Let's just say her mind and knows how to lie, how it can realize anyone witnessing a Eucharist (mass) neocatecumenale.

  31. Dear Massimiliano
    There is no moral lynching.
    You may raise questions.
    You say things.
    You give the other a liar.
    You think you talk to people who do not know the Neocatechumenal Way.
    Massimiliano is not so.
    Who says you and makes you questions that you do not answer, He knows very well the reality of the Neocatechumenal Way.
    Massimiliano stop being the victim if you want a constructive dialogue enter into the merits of the issues.
    Reply with objective facts of objective facts that you are offered.
    If you are not able to argue stop saying things you can not prove and stop complaining.
    Massimiliano're a little’ confused and out of reality.
    I suggest you talk to your catechists and ask them what they must write.
    Make a better service to your Lord and master Kiko Arguello stopping to say nonsense.

  32. The intention of this Don Ariel is clear, just wants to provoke and increase your visibility. The rest is the same thing that all those like him have done and want to do, then dear belonging to the Way, because it always falls? As writes Don Ariel is a staggering banality and even the most unprepared, those belonging to the Way, would know disprove, what are the usual nonsense. Why waste your time with them? They just want to sell a book visibility. We do care what you think Don Ariel? The Church has approved it? The Pope supports us? Do not waste your time following these stupidaggini.Buona day.

    1. Dear John,

      I direct a magazine that over the last three years has exceeded thirty million visits. She believes that this happened due to the criticism of the Neocatechumenal, to which I had never previously devoted an essay? Or maybe you think that this paper published today has given visibility to our magazine … retroactive?

      we come to banality of which she accuses me, I answer: trivial is your false prophet and bad teacher Kiko Arguello who claims publicly to perform exorcisms and command the Demons [ cf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl1vv1dEiiU ] etc. … etc. …

      I who am a minister in sacred, in order to exercise the ministry of exorcist – exercised only a few times and at the request of some exorcists seniors who thought they did not have the necessary physical strength and psychological demand particularly from those turbulent cases – I first receive the ministry by the bishop, with written permission and be filed, then it was further authorized to exercise precise rules and conditions. I might rather know, the lay Kiko, Who gave this mandate, saw that the priests themselves, without the express permission of the bishop, They may not exercise the ministry of exorcist ?

      The answer about the fact that I would say piffle: she thinks, before an audience of 100 people, It can hold up and support me, I do not say a theological discourse, but seriously a speech marked by the Catechism of the Catholic Church, responding with full knowledge and cognition to every question? If you can do it, tell me at which we can find public hall before an audience of listeners.

      The answer about the fact that her not interested What do you think Ariel: in lei lo sa, or better is clear, that this “fool” Don Ariel, by mandate received from the Holy Church, celebrates the Eucharistic Sacrifice, baptizes, It absolves from sins, administers the anointing of the sick, and he received, Sacramento of the triple grace office: teaching, steersmanship, sanctificandi no one has ever given instead to lay confusing Kiko and Carmen? And she calls me diffuser “piffle” which does not listen?

      Then follows his rhyme: the Church has approved it … Pope supports us …
      Well how come, She, denying the evidence, fails to accept and admit that the Church has approved of whole cloth after having rewritten the statutes and that Benedict XVI and Francis I support you to the point that, every official speech, They have made repeated and stern warnings, that if she could read, You might find all of them published in the official documents of the Holy See? Because in my writing, I report the facts and the official acts.

      Denying the evidence is typical of sectarian belonging to psycho-sects. And now tell me, which of them, She or I, It is a fool who says stupid things?

      Thank you, however, and in any case, She has given public confirmation of the way, Kiliani the messianic and elected among the elect, They are routinely used to treat priests.

      1. Sorry Don Ariel,As writes deserves no reply, though I could easily refute point for punto.Non because it has a special wisdom or intelligence,but because his views are those hackneyed,also quite trivial,said since other. I think it would not hurt if he had more respect for the Popes who have come and gone and I seem to have more than risposto.Mi sorry to say but this is something that would be better put into overcome soffitta.Lei knows very well that in the Church there are the appropriate bodies the protection of the orthodoxy of the faith,if you are not sure maybe ,the appropriate course ,essi.Parafrasando would turn to the famous letter of Card.Ruini, sent to Zoffoli,I would ask not to make judgments,leaving, to the proper authorities,the task of monitoring. I do not know if he read the words of St Paul VI and St. John Paul II,Benedict XVI and Pope Francis,on the Way,if he did not,I invite you to do so ,I do not think it pentirà.Sono convinced that she is just looking for excuse the visibilità.mi franchezza.Non I have more to aggiungere.le nice day and remember you in my prayers

        1. I'm sorry, I am that I can not replicate. Faced with those who reject the reality and the fact, I can only, following the example of Christ the Lord, stoop down quietly writing on the sand [cf. GV 8, 3-6].

          Unfortunately she stubbornly denies that documents written by the relevant ministries, both in the speeches of Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis I, There are hard and stern warnings to:

          1. the total respect of the liturgical books and in particular of education Sacramentum;
          3. respect of pastors and priests who are not ancillary figures to those of the lay ;
          4. the severe invitation to respect the parish community ;
          5. the very strict invitation not occur in the zones of mission with preset modes and especially taxation;
          6. the freedom of people to choose a different path from faith Way;

          etc. … etc. …

          needless to reiterate what I wrote, if she does not intend to read it or if she attempts to manipulate reality, so am i pray for you, because the Holy Spirit, the true one, your minds open and not close.

          Axel Theimer [visit our minds] … Kindle a light [may it be the light of the intellect]

          1. Dear brother Ariel, Praised be Jesus Christ! And thanks for the laudable and useful work you did.

            I am a Roman presbyter, I have 82 year old, it gives 4 He retired to private life with various health ailments, Today army chaplain functions early in an institute of religious in the Castelli Romani area and prepare myself to my encounter with God.

            I wanted to write a testimonial but your blow / response with this gentleman I was blown away: What about? Just a few words, since he mentions among other Cardinal. Camillo Ruini, I have known very well and for various reasons.

            At the time I was pastor of a parish in Rome I called the Neocatechumenal (I found that there already settled for years) to compliance with various rules, from liturgical ones, but above all I clarified that if they wanted the catechesis on specific themes of their choice, we would have made me and the other three parochial vicars, and then their catechists could speak and instruct them to walk.

            The head of catechists I literally attacked, and publicly he accused me of not having respect for the laity in the Church, and he mocked me in front of everyone. Finally he said, I quote it verbatim reporting: “you of the council thou hast not understand a dick, study it!”.

            Let's clarify: then I had 68 years and had taught for 30 ecclesiology years and for years was one of the trainers at the Roman Major Seminary. How true Ariel when you speak of in your great job … respectable builders fell from the scaffolding filled with the Holy Spirit who throw barbs and give lessons to the whole world.

            Practically it happened to me that, a hospital attendant, before all, He had told the surgeon to learn what had surgery.

            Which brings us to the then Cardinal Vicar Camillo Ruini cited unjustly and pro domo sua this gentleman: after slamming off the Neocatechumenals from the parish, if dal Cardinal Vicario, and I rehearsed the fact, and the decision taken by me. the answer was as follows: “You did well. But you know, unfortunately, They are particular subjects and not always easy to manage”.

            Point, I have nothing else to add.

            Letter Signed

        2. For John:

          If you respond to documented statements of Don Ariel it is so simple, because it does? For the same reason that no Neocatechumenal NEVER responds point by point to the comments on the various liturgical irregularities, let's say so, and non-compliance with the statutes and other practices not in line with the Catholic Church (see ballots “scarnificatori” the consciences, I’ Inquisition, see obedience to the catechists, see text of catechesis inaccessible to the ordinary faithful and parish priests, etc.).

          And the reason is that he would not know what to say, not being able to do so. Massimiliano quoted the Roman Missal about the bread, but on all other points he has been silent.

    2. Start as well to refute, Mr. John.

      We will wait anxiously her work.
      Demonstrate that the Way does not perform any liturgical abuse, that catechists during the ballots respect the inner hole (as well as provides your status), that tithing does not exist, that the “mamotreti” They have not been corrected with respect to the sacrifice of the Mass, the real presence, the redemption, the vicarious satisfaction, the ministerial priesthood, the Sacrament of Penance, all'escatologia intermediate, exegesis on the binding of Isaac, a “need of the devil” (controls…checks as well, fifth volume, “Initiation to prayer”), the brackets Constantine, et cetera, etc.

      Or the Catholic Church has changed Doctrine and canonized heresy or Kiko is heretical (but if it was, and he has come, however, he has not retracted nor publicly asked forgiveness).
      Third party.

      Respond with topics they can and pass up the slogans.

  33. I waited a long time to write my experience because still I am part of the way and I married a woman who has begun the journey as a young man and made me know. And’ a wonderful wife who has a very clear his wife and mother vocation. I must admit that this is due to what they said on the journey on the beauty of marriage etc. but also to the fact that he attended the courses of Assisi (vocational and engaged P. Marini). So an abnormal kikiana, because he did not follow only the path.

    But I come to my experience: My wife invited me, honestly without pressure, to enter the way, because we wanted to make a common faith journey and we seemed to do the right thing. The community that we frequent is made from 90% the sons of the way, all good guys and even the managers are good people. Until recently we had catechists “soft”. But since they put new megacatechisti arrived from Rome, things are done “serie”. They are more rigid and inflexible on the frequency to the path. Everything they say is accepted because their “the Spirit speaks” and there is no question.

    If you do not go to the Eucharist on Saturday because you have strong grounds, and you can go the next day at Mass in the parish, order you that instead you have to go to the celebration of the Sabbath. I confirm that the Eucharist that makes the journey is in fact another Mass, closer to Protestant than Catholic. If you think that Paul VI, the liturgical reform abolished the ancient liturgies and beautiful (He was saved thanks to the Ambrosiana Card. Colombo and perhaps some other) in the name of unity, CN because it has come up with a personality all its?

    It hurts, for example see the face of Jesus in the Eucharist you will never kneel, at most a bow and in the end the most important moment is the liturgy of the Word and not the Eucharistic liturgy, certainly not seen as a sin offering banquet and worship. However the utmost concern I have lived in so-called Lent ads, Advent etc. where the secular megacatechista talk for hours like a man possessed, hopefully with priests and monks silent. Undoubtedly I also saw the good, lives changed and conversions, but if the result is to create a parallel church did what good is all this?

    1. Last year, after 10 year old, I got out of the way to perceive all these things and see testimonials from people who have gone. In fact we see the fruits, but like you said do not work if you are creating a parallel church.

      I see this Massimiliano which rejects all evidence that the Way is doing harm to the Church, just to see these fruits, but he prefers not to see that this has had serious consequences.

      Would not it be better for us to try to produce the same fruits that claims to exist within the church, so that all people can taste them and not just the members of the Way?

      The peace of Christ to all.

      Congratulations for your courage, Dom Ariel (I do not know if it is well translated from Portuguese to Italian, I used the google translator)

      1. Dear lady,

        you have a good translator, because the translation from Portuguese to Italian is very understandable.


        Dear lady,

        It has a good translator, because its translation from Italian Portuguese is very understandable.

    2. Dear anonymous,

      I was almost in fireplace 30 year old, entering at twenty.

      I started the walk with my husband, that does not belong to you. Also I saw the beginning of good fruit, But along with many negative examples by catechists, communities of older brothers and their children, summed up in one word, rather two: rudeness and arrogance.

      I always thought and said that a good Christian no longer be rude and arrogant, because the next is to hate, nothing but love! To this statement I have always been looked upon as a strange.

      With the years, the few positive results (mainly dependent on the good-hearted and sincere disposition of a few mood, as it is often noticed) are increasingly diminished, while negative values ​​have increased.

      What I finally realized is that the path setting is rotten and wrong at the base, and from there they derive the poisoned fruit, first of blind obedience to the catechists and their dominance, The Catholics do not speak ill of neocat., To persevere in sin (no one must strive to do good, God will do for you!), the humiliation of the next, many liturgical abuses …

  34. Of course it's a genius this insult, lie and then greet with “peace”. But then, exclusively by grammatical or syntactical point of view, what the hell is going to mean “peace”? It is a subject? A direct object? It implies “be with you / you”? propose, for not adapt to kikiano jargon, to conclude our interventions using other random words, I do not know…”the chair”, “the door”, “ass”, “the consortium”, the “the direction”.

  35. Excellent choice Giovanni, she can refute it does not. I believe that his role model is Geppo the crowds, surreal singer played by Celentano in 1978:

    I know what you think but I do not, I do not do it.
    And that is why I am strong.
    Because I could but I do not.
    And you too, dai,
    Do not do what
    You'd only
    Why can

  36. I wanted to ask you not to mistreat the poor Massimiliano and Giovanni. It's true, they are rough, inacculturati and incredibly arrogant in his ignorance. But they are trying to respond, to defend their Way, They are the small of the Way, who hopelessly circumcised reason. Is it any wonder they are able to overcome control * not * a robot to comment.

    Where are the wise, the doctors of Sacred Theology, Catechists of fifty years experience, priests of the Way? There is one that keeps even the most religious programs, another who founded a newspaper that has wide circulation. Where am I?
    Where are the more than one hundred seminary rectors? Where Gennarini, i Donnini, i Voltage?

    I asked my friends of the Way to keep an eye on the comments space, because I did not expect to see appear these giants of the Way. But honestly I am surprised that they left here alone to answer for poor people who have never even seen the books of the Directory and Kiko original and do not know how heavy were the corrections that they could be approved.

    Besides these are the lies we tell.

  37. How easily predictable, no Neocatechumenal has bothered to refute anything.
    So I decided to drop an atomic bomb, that will put all neocatechumens facing a choice: continue the Way in bad faith against the immutable doctrine of the Church, or abandon it once and for all. You will not go to anyone to think as before.

    Through a trivial logical process, I will show that the assumption on which is based the Neocatechumenal, It is a false assumption, historically and theologically.

    Kiko teaches that since the Edict of Milan (313 D.C.) the Catholic Church to please the pagan, He was amending its doctrine, especially about the Holy Mass, and she would introduce you bid ideas and Sacrifice, totally unrelated to the primitive Church, who lived the Eucharist as "singing at Glorious Christ", celebrating his passage from death to life.

    It is useless to dwell, the network is the full text of catechesis in question, easily accessible by people of all walks of life.

    We come to the point. Let's see if you can deny the evidence also facing a self-evident contradiction.

    Let me give you a little present, an excerpt from Chapter IV of 'against heresies Saint Irenaeus of Lyons (which apparently it was not a magician pagan nature religion), written in the 180 D.C., that is 133 years before the edict that you think would cause a break in the history / liturgy / Doctrine of the Church.
    Here is the passage in question:

    "The selection of the Church, that the Lord commanded to present worldwide, It is considered by God and is a pure sacrifice he accepts. Not that he needs the sacrifice on our part, but rather it is that the bidder, If his gift is welcomed, he receives glory in what it offers. In fact, with the gift is manifested to the king is the honor that love. Wanting the Lord that we were to offer in simplicity and purity of heart, He warned us, saying,: "If you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, Leave there thy gift before the altar and go 'first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer your gift " (Mt 5, 23)

    Is it a duty to offer to God the first fruits of created things as also saith Moses: "No one shall appear before the Lord empty-handed" (Is 23, 15), hence man, expressing his gratitude for the middle of things give Him freely by God, You will receive the honor that comes from him.

    The offers they were always presented to God, once among the Jews, Now in the Church. God delights in the latter, but he did not reject the first. From this we can not conclude that they are identical. Equally there is only the appearance. In fact the first were made by servants, the second by children. One and the same is Lord, but the offer of the servants has its own character, and another on the other hand the offer of the children, because freedom is made evident also by means of tenders.

    With God nothing is in fact worthless, or meaningless. And therefore those consecrated to God the tithe of their products, while those who have received the freedom of the children consecrated to God all who belong to them: give in joy and freedom that is most valuable, sure to be rewarded with superior goods.

    They just like the poor widow of the Gospel, which puts everything into the storehouse whose lives. It is necessary that we make the offer to God and show us all thankful to the Creator, in the sincerity of language and faith without hypocrisy, in the firm hope, burning love, offering the first fruits of those created things that belong. Only the Church offers to God the Creator this pure offering, presenting in thanksgiving as it comes from the action divine creative. In fact we offer things that are his, proclaiming conveniently communion and unity, and confessing the resurrection of the flesh and spirit. As the earthly bread after having received the invocation of God is no longer common bread, but Eucharist, and it includes two realities, the earthly and the heavenly, so too our bodies, receiving the Eucharist, They are no longer corruptible, but they possess the hope of resurrection. "

    Questions for catechists Neocatechumenal.

    St. Irenaeus was a heretic? He did not have “known Easter”? The text is a false history? Or rather Kiko Carmen has built their entire building on a patently heretical theory?

    1. Dear brother priests and dear friends all,

      78 years and a priest for 52, always read The Island of Patmos, The council also to different people, for example, when complaining about Sunday heard in Sunday homilies unsatisfactory, and all I have thanked the board, because the father Ariel Capuchin Father and Dominican father offer every week of “Omela compensation” in the face of so many nonsense that we hear from the pulpit these days, especially from those higher. So all the other interesting items.

      I insert because the discussion was civil, even when you are busy, but always with due respect for those who say, Who denies and says to those who denied, and that is good.

      None of us, at least we priests, from what I have read, from really great essay by Father Ariel on the Neocatechumenal Way, imputed guilt to the members of this movement. the faults, if there are, They are all of the Holy See, who has not handled the problem, When the Way revealed herself, precisely, a problem that was controlled.

      A little bad, our history has known full religious orders that had to crear many problems, but the Church, when yet he decided, He ordered and cured, or the acceptance and approval or condemnation and severe punishment, He has always solved.

      Do not come to argue, dear friends Neocatechumenals, you have been approved by holy popes, because in the history of the Church, some saints popes, the damage they have done galore, and also particularly of large.

      They are a modest church historian and I could hold you for a long and illustrating, above all, showing that, if he had not been below that capable and determined man of government that was Boniface VIII that remedied, the damage done in a few months by Pope Celestine V, below canonised, They would be no small. And do not be fooled by posthumous black legends created between the '700 and the’ '800 by anticlerical of Boniface VIII, it was instead the right man at the right time. But it is not our speech …

      Since when 5 years ago I ceased to teach and to be a parish priest, I focus mainly on confessions, spiritual direction and preaching. I've known all right, Neocatechumenal, here in our area we have “possession” of dozens of parishes. And they are all, these Neocatechumenal, good people moved by good intentions. But when these people finally decide to turn to an outside priest to movement, they do it because they understood that this move is a journey that has a beginning and an end, and the end is not always pleasant.

      My experience has taught me that people entering the CN are mostly people who did not have a mature faith, or they did not own a faith. So, through NC, They have returned to the Church, or the idea of ​​the Church that this movement was given to them.

      Then people grow, accrues, They have relationships with other believers and ecclesial realities, and so discover that, the Way by which returned in faith, It is not the center of the election and perfection; if anything well discover that it is affected by many gaps and by not a few superficial and controversial doctrines, to this is added the lack of culture and theological preparation of many of his catechists, I too have had the opportunity to investigate.

      Then I said: What happens then when people wake up? Sad but true, the experience teaches me that: weak and frail people in the faith, They remain in the structure that supports them and makes them feel protected, others, acquired a certain awareness and strength, leave to practice the Way, almost always never good, nor painlessly, to undertake ecclesial paths and much more demanding and mature faith. And you know the first thing they ask the priests what? This: “Which texts can I study the doctrine of the Church?”.

      This is the good that the Way has made many people, especially to those which are outputs from the Way, but that the Way must, anyhow, their rapprochement to the faith and the Church.

      I believe that the Way is near the end of his journey. This is the classic movement born in the total chaos of the post-conciliar, where everything had to be experienced, rebuilt and brought back to unspecified and known origins. His time did it, and now he began his path to the end.

      The Holy See, after many years, He approved before to experiment with St. John Paul II, then finally with Pope Benedict XVI 2012, His statutes. Come to think, but, He approved them to accompany him, in a dignified and decorous, toward the tomb of the post council deceased, where I will be certainly erected a day, in that corner of the cemetery, a monument in memory and honor of the fallen movements.

      To their undoubted merit, will be sure to return to the Church people who did not even know the Our father and that they did not even make the sign of the cross. And this we shall always be grateful. And then, those who during this journey have truly learned and developed something, from that movement they have come out, and then, November, we explained to him what they really mean, the sign of the cross and Our father.

  38. And’ useless to ask Catechumenals refute doctrinal writings of Don Ariel, nobody knows anything about anything the Church, its documents, of his theology and his doctrine. even Kiko. Maybe some priest, but obviously unsuitable for those formats to mother of The Redeemer, as demonstrated by the two former priests seminarians Neocatechumenal.

    I did the catechist 25 years and the only thing required is to learn almost mind mamotreti: nothing added and nothing removed, as the Gospels. Who has not even made the catechist then, much less.

    I discovered the true Church only when I left and I had the chance to learn about things in the way I had never heard.

    The fact is that, as Kiko boasts, the Neocatechumenal preaching reaches almost exclusively “pagani” that, not knowing anything, Trust (as I trusted I) that kikiana preaching represents the Church.

    Among the laity, who has the most in-depth prior knowledge immediately he recognizes the smell and there falls. Among the priests is another thing, combine other components that I will not say.

    Giusto urge the refutation, but impossible…

  39. Good evening everyone,

    released by the CNC with my wife after 23 years to the stage of Election. Well I can only confirm all the distortions described by Father Ariel and other.

    Unknowingly liturgical deviations I suffered without giving too much weight while I had become intolerable intrusions of catechists, as I lay, without any training or ecclesiastical appointment that would justify the role.

    The parish where I was born and raised in decades is at the mercy of the CNC that have stifled any movement present. Of course the pastor is an ultra nc appointed by the Bishop probably because previous not indicated they could not change things (so it might as well turn the parish of 10.000 inhabitants in “Caliphate Nc”).

    Today I live a deep inner struggle because once you leave you have to rebuild normal and free ties with people who have not had this experience for me has always been troubled, view also my long training scout. I rediscovered Sunday mass and the simplicity of true hospitality in a different parish gestures.


  40. Massimiliano and Giovanni are the latest in a long series of hard-core that neocat, Observatory, in many years they have never been able to respond to anything.
    unique topics: we approved, to me does not happen, we approved, it's not true, we approved, you are in bad faith, we approved, you hate.
    There had never been one who had the courage to argue something, especially in the face of evidence of Kiko that strap on Youtube.
    How strange, but. They claim to be enlightened and discerning, to have the Spirit H24 and then confronted with facts and arguments flee.
    Why Is That?

    A Tomista.
    I always appreciate what you write, but do not kid yourself Irenaeus to move them. Irenaeus was not in the community and therefore could not understand, and they are still approved.
    And’ the same logic of Kiko, when he says that man is the slave of the devil and can not do evil. For this set the penitential, to repent of sins committed unintentionally and be forgiven of unwanted faults.
    The amended Mamotreti are sealed so as not to compare them with catechesis unchanged. No community has made partnerships to correct the heresies taught in…

  41. Dear Don Ariel softly let me point out that she mistakenly calls the Way "movement",but how can read St. John Paul II,It does not define it as such but OF CATHOLIC EDUCATION ITINERARY,that is one of the ways of Christian Initiation of adulti.Credo that the conceptual difference is ...

    "May I humbly remind, some short speech excerpts of recent popes on the Way,the capitalized shares are mine:

    Pope Francis:"Dear brothers and sisters, YOUR CHARISMA AND 'A GREAT GIFT OF GOD for the Church of our time. We thank the Lord for these fifty years: applause to fifty! And looking at his father, fraterna, and loving faithfulness, never lose faith: He will guard, , and encourage at the same time to go, as beloved disciples, to all peoples, with humble simplicity. I accompany you and encourage you:GO ON! And, Please, do not forget to pray for me, I stay here!”

    Pope Paul VI:"To live and to promote this awakening is what you call a way" after baptism ", which will renew in today's Christian communities those effects of maturity and deepening, that in the early Church, were realized by the period of preparation for Baptism .. ".

    From the letter Ogniqualcolta of the G.P.II 1990:”After over twenty years of life of the communities, spread in Five Continents, taking into account the new vitality which animates the parishes, the missionary impulse and the fruits of conversion which spring from the travel and, lately, by the work of the families who evangelize in de-Christianized areas of Europe and the world ; in view of vocations, arisen from this divine Way, the religious life and the priesthood, and the birth of diocesan colleges of formation to the presbyterate for the new evangelization, which the Redemptoris Mater of Rome ; Having examined the documentation submitted by you : granting the request made to me, I recognize the Neocatechumenal Way as an itinerary of Catholic formation, valid for our society and for our times”.

    Note laudatory of Mons.Annibale Bugnini:"" All the reforms, in the Church, provided new principles and new rules promoted, who put into practice the aims of the reform stessa.Così happened after the Council of Trent; nor could it be otherwise present day. The liturgical renewal has a strong influence on the life of the Church. There is need for the liturgical spirituality germinate new flowers of holiness and grace, as well as more intense and action spirituale.Un excellent model Christian apostolate of this renewal is in "Neocatechumenal Communities" that sprang up in Madrid, in 1962, initiative of some young lay people, with permission, the encouragement and blessing of the most excellent Shepherd Madrid, Casimiro Morcillo. The communities are designed to make visible in the parishes the sign of the Missionary Church, and strive to open way for the evangelization of those who have almost abandoned life cristiana.A this end, the members of the 'Community' are trying to live more intensely the Christian liturgical life, beginning with the new catechesis and preparation "catechumenal" Bugnini ... Mason was not.

    Still in G.P.II 2002 expermentum to the approval of the Statute:"" How can we not thank the Lord for the fruits brought by the Neocatechumenal Way in its more than thirty years of existence […] In a secularized society like ours, where religious indifference is spreading and many people live as if God did not exist, too many people in need of a new discovery of the sacraments of Christian initiation; especially that of baptism. The Way is certainly one of the providential answers to this urgent need. I wish to stress the importance of the newly approved Statutes for the present and future life of the Neocatechumenal Way, as I have said a few years ago, It constitutes "an itinerary of Catholic formation, valid for our society and for our times ". The statutes also form, an important help for all the pastors of the Church, especially for diocesan bishops, who are entrusted by the Lord, pastoral care and, in particular, Christian initiation of the people in the Diocese ...

    Decree of the Pontifical Council for the Laity 26 Dec 2010 prot. 1436/10/AIC "The above-mentioned volumes of Catechetical Directory have been revised by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith from 1997 until the 2003 and properly equipped with references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church related to the material covered in all catechesis. Recently, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, after having further examined the results of the above study, in order to give greater security to the implementation of the Neocatechumenal Way, as well as to offer doctrinal guarantees to all the pastors of the Church, It saw fit to deliver to the Pontifical Council for the Laity - the Department as following this ecclesial reality - the task to give specific approval to the Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way volumes (cf. letter of 20 November 2010, Prot. N. 36/75 – 33843)…

    Pope Benedict XVI:"" How can we not bless the Lord for the spiritual fruits that, through the method of evangelization carried out by you, They were able to collect over the years? How many fresh apostolic energies have been inspired, among both priests among the laity! How many men and women, and how many families, that turned away from the church community or had abandoned the practice of Christian life, through the proclamation of the kerygma and the itinerary of rediscovery of baptism we have been helped to rediscover the joy of faith and enthusiasm of evangelical witness! […] The recent approval of the Statutes of the Way has sealed the esteem and benevolence with which the Holy See follows the work that the Lord has inspired through your Initiators ...

    ,Regarding catechesis,even before they were examined by the Competent Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,They were examined by Cong.per the Clergy,through a Salesian theologian named Father Joseph Groppo.Dopo having analyzed the voumi,wrote a note that the transmit:"The novelty of these catechesis and the fundamental criterion for their interpretation is the fact that they are speaking of an experience of faith and conversion and thus it is an existential language, whose truth does not lie in the single sentence, but in the overall context: intensely lived experience does not lend itself to clear theoretical formulations, but it is always expressed in a somewhat 'chaotic, with frequent repetitions, with the use of paradoxes, for more images for concepts. I now wish to discover another aspect of these catecheses, or rather of this Neocatechumenal. As a scholar of the history of ancient catechesis must say that the attempt to Kiko and Carmen to actualize the catechumenate is a riuscito.L'esperienza attempt has hinted that deeply contained valuable institution of the first three ...

    As has noted ,I just posted the speeches of Popes and ufficiali.So documents that she will not be enough and that restrerà his idea.Spero But to have done riflettere.Grazie and good day.

    1. Dear John,

      the operation that she accomplished through these quotes is staggering and in scientific language is called “conceptual manipulation” and “lexical”. It is a very serious operation.

      Or better understood: showing devoid of critical and analytical sense, she takes the texts and draws as reference only and exclusively positive steps taken out of whole context, doing so to speak, in this case the documents of the Popes, what they do not tell.

      Anyone can then take the documents cited in my text, read them from start to finish and realize how severe were instead references in these Popes to the Neocatechumenal Way in liturgy, ecclesiological, pastoral and missionary.

      The operation that you have just made him explain a passage from the Gospel of the Apostle John Beato. In practice she takes the song of John's Gospel which tells attempting to prostitute stoning [cf. GV 7,53-8,11] and he cites in this way:

      [Then said Jesus] "Which one of you is without sin, first to throw a stone at her ". And again he stooped down, He wrote on the ground. but those, heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the eldest to the last. Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him. Then Jesus straightened up he said: “Donna, where am I? Has no one condemned?”. She replied,: “No One, Lord”. And Jesus said,: “Neither do I condemn” ».

      At this point, we can safely say and support:

      1. Jesus Christ, He has perhaps doomed prostitute? Not at all, so he had nothing against prostitutes ;
      2. Jesus Christ, Was it contrary to prostitution? Well, from how he behaved no, clearly she says to the prostitute who does not condemn ;

      Then, why not reopen the brothels and do not give legal regulation of prostitution?

      You could say and sustain that and more, on that page of the Gospel, simply omitting the only part of the final, but, after "Neither do I condemn you", He concluded his words by saying: «[…] will’ and from now on sin no more ".

      Citing this track pieces and omitting the final part, which implies the woman's repentance, the forgiveness of Jesus Christ and especially the warning to repent and to sin no more, It tells the Gospel, in this as in many other cases, what the Gospel does not say at all.

      And this is called manipulation and falsification of reality, you just need to read through the full texts of official speeches, I reported, John Paul II until Francis I, in which the Supreme Pontiffs are politely to the hair and the Neocatechumenal contropelo, all, and on several occasions.

      Some text of approval to experiment of 2002, you quote only what you want. What does it mean instead, when the Saint John Paul II's speech says:

      "I want to especially address a word to you priests, that you are committed to the service of the Neocatechumenal communities. Never forget that, as ministers of Christ, you have an irreplaceable role of sanctification, teaching and pastoral guidance to those who walk the route of the Way. Serve with love and generosity the communities entrusted to you!»

      Why it is aimed at priests and not the mega-catechists clarifying that it is they who must sanctify, teach and guide? Why Saint John Paul II clarified so that only she seems not to have understood, neocatecumentali that are entrusted to priests, however not mega-catechists, the priest sat sideways to make “Yes” his head while the mega-catechist pontificates ? This, St. John Paul II, He did not want, It'll clarified since the first approval to experiment.

      But above, what will you understand her, when St. John Paul II says:

      "It is now up to the competent offices of the Holy See to examine the Catechetical Directory and all the catechetical and liturgical practices of the Way. I am sure that its members will not fail to go along with generous availability indications that they will come from such authoritative sources ».

      I'll tell You, What are you saying the Holy Pontiff, exactly that:

      1. Now we will give you guidelines regarding statutes and catechetical courses and you will respect them ;
      2. we will give you the precise liturgical directives and will respect ;
      3. When the dicasteries of the Holy See will give you guidelines to follow, you will have to obey in every way to what will be commanded.

      Or maybe, instead making cuts and sew as better returns, these statements of St. John Paul II she interprets them in any other way?

  42. bless the Lord.

    Why the Neocatechumenal Way has contempt for the Catholic priesthood?
    Already in this matter it called in Catholic Church Pius XI called:

    " After all, as we mentioned from the beginning, themselves enemies of the Church, in their own way, show to hear all the dignity and importance of the Catholic priesthood, directing against this their first and fiercest blows, knowing how intimate the connection which intercedes between the Church and its priests. The fiercest enemies of the Catholic priesthood today are the same enemies of God: here is a title of honor that makes the most worthy of respect and veneration priesthood ".

  43. Thanks Don Ariel for having analyzed the Way and having highlighted all that was wrong. Even more so thank you for having exposed himself in the first person writing this article. For years, I am doing reading the documents I hear, after so much time and work, the usual phrases “we approved, Pope praises us and tells us to keep”.
    After many years of suffering with my spouse,now we live together like two strangers, we are close to separation. If you can ask her to also analyze this problem that is created when only one of the two is on the way .
    Thank you again so much and I pray the Lord to help increasingly in his mission.

    1. Anche io come Trilù vivo una condizione familiare disastrosa. La mia coniuge è neocatecumenale convinta, vede qualunque mio commento come il demonio che la tenta. Vita familiare completamente assente, ormai in guerra da anni e se non fosse per i figli e per un amore di fondo (ma travolto e seppellito dalle macerie) anche noi prossimi alla separazione. Ormai viviamo come due estranei sotto lo stesso tetto.
      Come è possibile che un movimento che si proclami cattolico e fedele alla Santa Chiesa permetta una tale divisione in famiglia? E che incoraggi ad abbandonare la famiglia per essere sempre più presente nella vita neocatecumenale anche con lo scopo (dichiarato ma non vero) di salvare in questo modo la famiglia stessa?

      1. Dear Reader,

        queste cose le sappiamo da molto tempo, unfortunately.

        Numerosi sono i vescovi che hanno ricevuto tante lamentele nel corso degli anni riguardo idivorzi causatitra coniugi uno dei quali non era neocatecumenale; e pure presso la Santa Sede, sono da sempre informati.

        Possa Dio concedere a lei la grazia del ravvedimento di sua moglie da questo incubo e possa concedere la misericordia del Purgatorio a tutta quelle autorità ecclesiastiche che, proprio mentre si adoperavano tanto a parlare di famiglia, di matrimonio, della salvezza della famiglia e della sacralità del matrimonio, permettevano ad una setta intra-ecclesiale di compiere cose di questo genere che, I repeat, le Autorità Ecclesiastiche conoscono bene.

        1. Thank you, Padre Ariel, per quello che mi ha scritto.
          Vorrei chiederle, se non sono di troppo disturbo, un suo parere: ma se le cose stanno così perché la Santa Sede e le Autorità Ecclesiastiche non intervengono in maniera più decisa? Forse per paura di perdere fedeli o svuotare le chiese? In my opinion, modesto e da ignorante, la vera Chiesa si stà svuotando proprio perché il CNC continua a dilagare e a farla da padrone in parecchie parrocchie circonducendo parecchi ignari e deboli fedeli in cerca di aiuto.

          1. Le uniche persone che da cinque/sei anni a questa parte vedono le piazze piene, che invece sono sempre più vuote; le chiese con incremento di fedeli, che ne sono invece usciti come una vera e propria emorragia; che fantasticano sull’aumento delle confessioni, mentre sui confessionali crescono le ragnatele; and so to follow, sono quei vaticanisti della Pravda che, come accadeva nel vecchio regime sovietico, presentano una realtà che non esiste.

            Le piazze una volta affollata da fedeli oggi sono semivuote, le chiese si stanno progressivamente e drammaticamente svuotando, l’afflusso alle Messe è drasticamente calato ed i confessionali sono disertati.

            A questo aggiunga i Neocatecumenali che, quando invadono una parrocchia, la riempiono dei propri affiliati e la svuotato degli altri fedeli.

            E chi non vede e non accetta questo, o è in malafede, o vive una realtà che no esiste, a partire dagli addetti della Pravda.

  44. Dear Don Ariel since the number of characters is limited I can not mention the documents in full,But if you accuse me of manipulating the documents they're wrong because this is falso.Io I stick to what the Catholic Church and its competent organs have ordered and established under the authority of the various popes who have succeeded and she should respect the Pope and the bodies of Chiesa.Se obedience to the Church and the Pope are equivalent to not having critical sense,I am proud not to have,Ubi Petrus ibi ecclesia recites a famous motto, and for me it really matter,I hope that I have for. I hope you do not feel superior to the Pope and to Cong.per the Doctrine of fede.sarebbe very grave.Lei makes claims falsely apodictic,without proving or documenting .No wants to question its preparation,but each topic is shown and she seems,I do not have fatto.E’ free to think what he wants on the Way,but do not confuse his thoughts with what the Church has officially said and done for the day cortesia.Buona.

  45. Dear Father Ariel,she can prove with documents,that the Popes that I mentioned have recalled the way sternly,rather than encourage him?I look forward to proving these claims. I do not handle anything,I only quoted excerpts of speeches of Popes and other documents,just because this page only allows a certain number of characters ,but the documents I mentioned are public and are available to everyone. I brought a letter of the late Mons.Annibale Bugnini,at the beginning of the seventies as head of Cong.per Worship Divino.E’ note laudatory,This means then that the celebrations of the communities were considered an excellent model resulted from post Vatican liturgical reform II.Probabilmente Paul VI also thought the same.

  46. Gentile Don Ariel,I do not see what I would have manipulated?She's a very personal interpretation of speech G.P.II,arbitrary and fantasiosa.E’ true that the Pope is addressed to priests,but just before he addressed the catechisti.Il fact that it appealed to priests does not erase all precedente.Il Pope's address stated in that speech:”I wish to stress the importance of the newly approved Statutes for the present and future life of the Neocatechumenal Way that,as I have said a few years ago,is a”itinerary of Catholic formation,valid for our society and for our times”(AAS 82 (1990)1515″.Meanwhile, I again note that he was wrong by calling the NC movement,how can read the Way is he not a movimento.Inotre the Pope speaks of initiation cattolica.Quanto the departments have placed in recent years is rispettato.Nel 2008 under Pope Benedict XVI has approved the statute definitively what has also been reaffirmed by Pope Francis,through Mons.Becciù,when some bishops wanted to prevent the celebration of Saturday evening, and the Easter Vigil.

    1. Dear John,

      She actually tried, before handling the texts - see answer above its long - then before my replica, I could not answer on the merits, who has just written these very words:

      "Pope Francis in his first audience with the Way,He said things, by detractors interpreted as a tirade of orecchie.Ma Mons. Dirt clarified exactly what he meant […]»

      Let me get: Perhaps we are dealing with a Supreme Pontiff, which is the guardian of the faith, supreme teacher and performer, that after speaking and being misunderstood by critics for its reproaches made to the Neocatechumenal Way, illuminatissimo requires the intervention of the equally famously lit S.It is. Mons. Angelo Dirt, time substitute at the Secretariat of State?

      Now I understand, how come we are living a great crisis and ecclesial and ecclesiastical decadence!

      Dear John, I guarantee that I am the last of the priests of the orb catholica, But this does not mean that by God's grace I have received:

      1. a liberal arts education;
      2. a philosophical formation;
      3. legal training;
      4. a theological-dogmatic-sacramentaria training;
      5. a historical-dogmatic education ;
      6. I continue to study day by day ...

      add to this that they know well and in the Roman Curia bottom, for various reasons and reasons that you do not need to explain.

      That said: if I do that without a calculator can not do even the divisions were invited to a conference of mathematicians, I put in a corner to listen in silence, trying to understand something, and at the end I would not understand anything, because they are devoid of mathematical notions.

      Taking the example of mathematical character that I just made wonder: because her instead, like me who can not do the divisions, It begins to argue with the mathematical?
      Perhaps because the Holy Spirit has given to that effect all the special gifts?

      sees, if she would entrust my spiritual direction, rather than that of some mega-lay catechists, It might be helped, first of all to develop and bring out the best that God has certainly given ability and good feelings, she just needs to be helped, from a mature priest, Free to develop reasoning and critical thinking.

  47. I am deeply moved.
    Faced with the praise bugniniano I can not help but bow down and recognize my incompetence and ignorance.
    Being praised by Bishop. Bugnini for the liturgy is a badge of honor.
    On the other hand, who would not want to be praised by the commander Schettino for their heroism?
    And who would not be proud to receive the award “Tommaseo” the dal. Antonio Razzi?
    But most of those who, among those who cultivate the virtue of perfect chastity, he never yearned (maybe even subconsciously) to hear publicly appreciation by Rocco Siffredi?

    1. Believe me: I do not know what to say.

      In my long work, that at this point I'm afraid that you have not read, But at the same launching into comments, she asks me to "try out" what I have shown in my writing, and in this regard she invites me to mention the documents of the Popes.

      Well, I tell me what I should "try", I am seen that in my writing I have faithfully reported the official documents of the Holy See that published and distributed this talk of the Popes? But the things that I have to "try"? Maybe I have to prove that just read my script and then read in full certain speeches of St. John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis I in this paper are all, faithfully and fully reproduced ?
      But she realizes that she is asking me to try what is proven in the official texts of the speeches of the Popes?

      As for the late Annibale Bugnini, It may explain why, This time late, the 4 January 1976 was raised by the Holy Pontiff Paul VI from all his positions in the Roman Curia and the same was appointed apostolic speak forth in the then Persia, now Iran? He explains to me because after that decision, the Holy Pontiff Paul VI, repeatedly he refused to receive, then why, as long as he lived, the late and meritorious Annibale Bugnini did not see him again?

  48. Take the words of Popes as a pretext to attack the Way, What it is not licit either corretta.Papa Francis in his first audience with the Way,He said things, by detractors interpreted as a tirade of orecchie.Ma Mons. Dirt clarified exactly what he meant:””SUCH WORDS (those of the Pope) DO NOT ALTER ANY STATUTES INDEED LI CONFIRM. With regard to the celebration of EASTER VIGIL AND SUNDAY EUCHARIST,you mention,articles 12 and 13 beds in INTEGRITA'COSTITUISCONO THEM SO THE REGULATORY FRAMEWORK”. The Way of the Statute provides that we celebrate the Eucharist after the first vespers, and communion be done to prejudice posto.Non see what we shall be committing abuses.
    I do not understand why she wants to sow discord?

  49. All the Neocatechumenal Way in four rows. Here are two questions that Kiko turns to his catechumen, in the context of a poll (Volume VI of the Catechetical Directory, “Tradition”, before approval):

    Kiko: Before the way you were blind? What you did not see?
    WITH.: Before the journey I was a bigot, because I was born in the Church and had a terrible morality, a terrible fear of hell. I always had to present the face of good, I never had a sin, the blame was always the other. I have done what I have wanted all my life and basically I have never believed sinner because I was a good person, because I always went to church and did not see me blind. One day I heard the”ad and through what the Lord grabbed me; after listening to all the catechization, after he started walking, the Lord has made it through his Word, through community, I begin To see that I was a pig. The Lord allowed, while I was in community, It has allowed that I might sin because they saw how I was. Inside the community, through the Word, the Lord has put me in front of my sins.

    Kiko: All the mud that was in you, the crap that was in you.
    WITH.: In quantity! I did not understand, before the journey, because one married would go with another; This did not understand. The Lord has permitted me you committed adultery, when I was already on the way. It made me see that I'm an adulterer, It showed me that I am a selfish, I love money; I showed me that I love no one, neither my wife, nor my children, I love only myself, I've always tried to benefit from others. This made me see the Lord through life!, I put mud on my eyes making me see that I'm blind because I could see that he loved me so, He did not have shit for my sins, I not despised me, He loved me! And I have seen this in the community, because knowing my sins, the Lord came up through the brothers; through my wife came up to me and wished me well. The Lord approached me in concrete persons, and he wished me well. So I have experienced that God loves me as I am, reduced to be an unfortunate.

  50. To John.

    Why not shows us the meaning of the papal sentence to you revolt “faithfully follow the Liturgical Books without additions or omissions”?
    Why do you keep doing what you like, indeed, as it seems to Mr. Arguello?
    Because in front of precise questions (see above) voi neocat ammutolite?
    And’ your dumb devil who intervenes, as they say the catechists to get you out all the details of your private life in the polls?

  51. Father Ariel Caro,she repeated that I would try to manipulate the speeches of Popes reported,but then he does not say how I would repeat fatto.Le,This page only allows a certain number of characters,otherwise I would have no problem publishing them in their interezza.Ma.come,I have already said,The documents are available on the Way site available to all,Sorry, I did not understand my answer,then I'll explain,When Pope Francis gave his first speech to the Way,said that maybe it was the case that they gave up something to improve comunione.Qualche Bishop played this evil speech thinking that doevvamo renounce the celebrations in small comunità.Ma the Pope did not say what and why the error rectified through Mons.Becciu .Pertamto the Pope's will is that the Communities do the CN as envisaged by the Statuto.E the Statute provides for the Eucharist in the small community and then waking separata.Che no sense elitist exaggeration and separatist,but they have training videos,as well as the Sacrosanctum Concilium provides states that the liturgy also has educational purpose as it is written to 33 of that constitution.

  52. Like so many others, I am unfortunately forced to use a pseudonym to steal my loved ones to the relentless vengeance neocat (both the ecclesial and civil field, and they do not give up even if they are mobilized law enforcement).

    There would not even need to say: Don Ariel did a great job (it is a pleasure to hear an amateur in comparison), and the Lord will reward.

    I would just like to clarify some points.

    1) The neocatecumenalismo assign new meanings to certain words of the Christian lexicon, for the express purpose of deceiving even the educated.
    “We are persecuted because they do evangelism”, they tell you, and actually it means “someone takes the bait our trap”.
    Or: “openness to life”, which actually means “irresponsible fatherhood”, sfornar children like rabbits, Sometimes we think the babysitter, then bragging coexistence “I have twenty children including eight in the sky” (counting miscarriages and – understood – those volunteers).
    Or again, “a bishop has asked to open a Redemkikos Mater Seminary”, to translate into “we made him an offer he could not refuse”

    2) The neocatecumenalismo has its own internal jargon that you should always translate:
    "Environmental": homily secular preparatory to the celebration
    "Monition": systematic homily layman before a reading of the Mass
    "Resonance, do Kerygma, give a testimony ... ": extemporaneous sermons of the laity
    "Scrutiny": stripping of consciences with questions that would make even a confessor
    "Tour of experience": stripping of the fast version consciences
    "Lift": response ritual (the rise) to "vocational call" Kiko the provoker of vocations
    "Domestic partnership": meeting in the hotel (unnecessarily far and unnecessarily expensive) to celebrate the kikismo-carmenismo (the so-called "catechists" and their companions are not charged)

    3) The neocatecumenalismo demands to deceive.
    Example: "For any admonitions issued before the readings, should be short ' (letter of 1 December 2005), I walk in hand are not "possible" but "omnipresent", and are not "short" but they last forever. Or: "We do the Communion under both kinds" ...

    Although they realize the manipulation, however, they insist to want to fool the next ...

  53. Good evening, Father Ariel,

    regarding the continuing claims of the Neocatechumenal gentlemen about the last Popes have encouraged the Way as a valid path of Christian life, I would not be wrong but it seems to me that in any case the judgment of a pope of an ecclesial reality does not touch those cases in which you exercise the charism of infallibility except that it is a judgment in final form. What the CNC there was.

    I am wrong?

    1. Dear Enzo,

      a Roman Pontiff can be expressed in the form final is in shape definitional, which implies, in one and in the other case, recourse to the infallible teaching, albeit exercised in different degree, just read St. John Paul II To defend the faith].

      This text explains the following:

      – in the case of truths of paragraph 1, ie teaching definitional, the assent is based directly on faith in the Word of God;

      – in the case of the 2nd paragraph of truth, ie in the case of teaching not definitional the definitive, this is based on faith in the Holy Spirit to the Magisterium and on the Catholic doctrine of the Magisterium " [cf. n. 8].

      Those who do not accept a teaching definitional They fall into heresy public and shows as well as excommunication automatic, those who do not accept a teaching definitive, fall into error, but not heresy.

      What does it all? I'll try to explain very briefly:

      – To definitional It means the proclamation of the dogma of the Catholic faith, example: the dogma of the assumption into heaven of the Virgin Mary, the last of the Marian dogmas proclaimed by the Servant of God Pius XII in 1950.

      – To definitive instead it means a teaching that is not proposed as a dogma of faith, but which it is, however, expression of the infallible teaching. An example of a final ruling is St. John Paul II in his Apostolic Letter Priestly ordination of 1994 states: "The Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church's faithful"

      On all other issues or acts of the supreme magisterium, it may happen instead of the Roman Pontiff, or his successor, decides to change the teachings and certain subjects for reasons of expediency, for example pastoral, as well as might disapprove, for various reason or for unexpected reasons, what his predecessor has established. Example: There were Popes who have approved a religious order or congregation, and then there were their successors that, This same order or congregation, the suppressed.

      Sincerely – and I mean it with real affection – in the Neocatechumenal here have interjected and with all those with whom I interjected me over time, I encountered widespread ignorance in historical context, ecclesiological, theological and juridical. Ignorance move far from bad faith, but precisely from ignorance, that is, from ignorance, to the point of really fall into the grotesque, changing as the approval of a lay movement by the Pontifical Council for the Laity, in a real dogma of the Catholic faith to put more or less the same level of Christological dogma or the dogma of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. If then, as I did for the umpteenth time even in my reply, one tries to explain certain facts them with all the proper theological and juridical science, expressing everything with due pastoral loveliness, we find ourselves before a real rants of people, without getting in the least about how you answered, They really replicate with absurd arguments.

      Surely I'm losing precious time that maybe I could make better use instead of going to knock on a clear glass ceiling. And saying this I reiterate that I believe that these people are not to blame, even when they try to refute absurd arguments with those certain subjects and disciplines he knows them and studies them for a lifetime.

      They were formed and de-formed in this way. And maybe, many of them, justified by their invincible ignorance, Paradise will long before us. I do not believe that the gates of Paradise are closed to those who, invincible ignorance, they start showing discuss, discussion questioned, have neither a sense of proportion nor the common sense of the ridiculous.

  54. Remarks Mons.Juan Ignacio Arrieta Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts
    Already President of the Institute of Canon Law Saint Pius X in Venice

    The Holy See has approved definitively the legal statutes of the Neocatechumenal Way. With the formal handover of the approval decree by the President of the Pontifical Council for the Laity to the initiators of the Way, Kiko Argüello and Carmen Hernández, and Father Mario Pezzi, it was concluded on the morning of 13 June 2008 the legal process started six years ago when it was experimentally approved the text of the Statutes. A few months earlier, the Council for the Laity had been indicated by the Servant of God John Paul II as the dicastery that had to assume on behalf of the Holy See the approval of the work of these Statutes, while not a question of an association of faithful. With this Act, the Pontifical Council has fulfilled the Papa.I that position the new Statutes substantially follow the wording of those approved six years ago. Thirty-five articles and a transitional provision contained the provisional text of 2002, and the same items have now the norm ...

    Even from the record of Mons.Arrieta:"With this act the Pontifical Council has fulfilled the Papa.I that position the new Statutes substantially follow the wording of those approved six years ago. Thirty-five articles and a transitional provision contained the provisional text of 2002, and the same items now owns the final rule. Beyond the news, at all secondary, to which I shall refer below, no fundamental change has been made in this new passage of the Statutes, and almost all articles are exact reproduction of the old ones. These six years served sleep, however, to make greater clarity as to the original formulation of the texts and to improve the norm both from a technical point of view and from that structural

    The Neocatechumenal Way is confirmed in the new Statutes as a post-baptismal catechumenate model that shall be given under the direction of the diocesan bishops or, as he called Pope John Paul II in the words transcribed in Art. 1° of the Articles of Association, as an "itinerary of Catholic formation": a training program for the Christian life of the person, Practice primarily catechetical and liturgical, imparted in community and conducted according to specific rhythms and methods. What it contains the Statute of the Way, and what now approves the Holy See, it is not an association of persons, or an "ecclesial movement" of faithful. The Church has given its approval not to what might normally be called a "gathering of people", but to a "Catholic formation method", although the approval of the ecclesiastical authority of the method and content commitments reflexively those who propose or receive such means to respect the rules, without creating any associative link between them, as with all normality among classmates or colleagues college.
    Note well that Mons.Arrieta reiterates that the NC is not a movement.

    Please read carefully the following passage:"In my view, the greatest consequence of this public personality, applied to the itinerary of formation neocatecumenale, regards the particular ecclesial authority with which, under the direction of the diocesan bishops, s'impartisce so far the Way, and in the particular commitment that, as a result, It assumes why it is proposed - as resulted before, but now with renewed legal commitment - through people specially selected and specially trained ".
    NB Mons.Arrieta speaks of particular ecclesial authority. How far are we from the description given by you,that is, a heretical sect.

    Still from Mons.Arrieta annotations:"Only in this way can be interpreted the term" neocatechumens "used in reference to people that" propose "the Way or that" do "the Way. To be fair, although not a typed institutional category as such in the canonical, that to be constructed requires the use of the analogy than other canonical norms - the legal entity, associations, foundations, etc.. –, must also be said that this setting, He received six years ago as a novelty, it later served to better understand other realities that are recognized with difficulty in conventional systems associativi.A unlike the text of 2002, Statutes approved now affirm the public juridical personality of the Neocatechumenal Way (art 1 § 3), erection happened to the initiative of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, with Decree 28 October 2004. The point is of particular importance because it brings us to the real news that, around, It is seen in the new Statutes ".

    He noted that the Catholic Church has granted public juridical personality to the Way? Now it is difficult to imagine such a thing,if as you say,we are a sect.

    Regarding, at last, liturgical ceremonies, and concretely the Eucharistic celebration, The text of the Statute defined has certainly benefited the progress and adjustments of these years. Here, too, we have come to a clear text, which is divided into four principles laid down by Article. 13 Statutes. First, that Neocatechumenals celebrate the Eucharist in small communities, after the first vespers of Sunday. Second, that such a celebration after the first vespers takes place in accordance with the diocesan bishop. Third, that these celebrations - as I said - are part of parish ministry and as a result are open to all the faithful. bedroom, that these celebrations will follow the approved liturgical books of the Roman Rite, "With the exception of the explicit concessions from the Holy See" (use of unleavened bread for communion, move the Rite of Peace, communion under both species, Brief remarks and resonances)…
    Note well the admonitions and resonances are granted are not so abusi.I Neocatechumenals celebrate the Eucharist on Saturday night,Therefore the bishops that do not impede the spiritual good of neocatechumens.

    Finally, the last part of the annotations:"Regarding, in fine, Communion, the aforementioned Article. 13 § 3 It is of a particular nettezza: "With regard to the distribution of Holy Communion under the two species, the neocatechumens receive standing, remaining in their places ".Who will take the commitment to control the variations between the provisional text of the Statutes of 2002 and the definitive one now published, You will see that, in addition to those mentioned in these few pages, there are no significant changes in the document body. Changes, as I said at the beginning, were very few, although significant as we segnalato.E 'certainly good for the Church that the Neocatechumenal Way has come now to the final approval of their Statutes. It remains to us, with the help of the Lord and of Our Lady, make sure that these standards are applied in concrete cases rightness of the Church's pastoral ".
    As you can read the Church has approved the Statute which provides for an exception in that it provides for the Roman Missal,Therefore communion can be made remains in place,without making the procession.

    I note, therefore, that, beyond the concessions listed,the Roman Missal includes the possibility of communion under both specie.Anzi already Cost.Dog Sacrosanctum Concilium n. 55,reintroduzione.Il included the Roman Missal prescribes the n. 281: "The Holy Communion, in reason of the sign, It assumes fuller form, if it is done under the two species. It appears most obvious sign of the Eucharistic banquet is most clearly expressed the divine will to ratify the new and eternal covenant in the blood of the Lord, and is more intuitive relationship between the Eucharistic banquet and the eschatological banquet in the Father's kingdom "

    About the use of unleavened bread, the Roman Missal prescribes:”320. The bread for celebrating the Eucharist must be made only from wheat, packaged recently and unleavened, according to the ancient tradition of the Latin Church.
    321. The sign demands that the material for the Eucharistic celebration truly like food. It should, therefore, that the Eucharistic bread, even though it unleavened and packaged in the traditional form, It is done so that the priest at Mass with a congregation is able to break it into parts for distribution to at least some of the faithful. Small hosts are, however all excluded, when the number of communicants, or other pastoral needs require it. The gesture of breaking bread, in which the Eucharist was in apostolic time, It brings out more clearly the force and importance of the sign of 'unity of all in the one bread and the sign of charity, the fact that the one bread is distributed among the brothers.

    Communion on the palms posed Cross,in addition to being a very ancient discipline,dating back to Jesus himself and used,as the only way,in the early Church for at least eight to nine centuries,It was reintroduced after Vatican II,with the Education Memorial Domains,demandava that the episcopal conferences to the decision of many countries concederla.In,including Italy,CEI allows this discipline,therefore,which speaks of abuse?Thanks,good night and I'm sorry for the length.

    1. Dear John,

      asking God for the grace of the virtue of holy patience, please read, first, the answer that I gave it over to Enzo, in which there is a clear, precise and orthodox doctrinal exposition in which I explain what is the dogma and when a defined truth is a truth of faith.

      Instead of sending another papyrus like the one that sent, for not responding then only final to the various questions that have been placed, try now, In brief – Read the answer to Enzo – to answer these three easy and simple questions:

      – She believes that the approval of the statute of a lay movement by the Pontifical Council for the Laity, constitute a truth of faith expressed in a definitive way or definitional ?

      – she believes, therefore, that that approval of the Neocatechumenal Way, imply a pronouncement by the Church's infallible teaching binding on all Catholics to pay total membership as if it were a defined truth of faith ?

      – She believes that, those who do not believe the Neocatechumenal Way a Catholic movement marked the doctrinal and liturgical orthodoxy, They are less obedient deference owed by all the faithful to the deposit of the Catholic faith ?

      Three simple questions, which I hope will answer.

      If, however, I will send in response to another papyrus which speaks of quite different things diverting elsewhere speech, know in advance that you do not publish, because even the holy patience can oblige in any way to a sterile dialogue between a priest and a theologian who tries in every way to explain, and a deaf man in every way shown not to want to understand.

      I repeat: Three simple questions.

      1. They are simple for those who have read his previous answers and detailed explanations contained in them and those who acted in good faith. For those not in good faith and deny the evidence, are simply not answer questions that. To ignorance and arrogance, the neocat believe they are custodians of absolute truth, and they are always instructed not to talk to those who think like them. Clearly, even if they tried, hardly would be able to find valid arguments, because they are ignorant of theology average, also basilar, and also, unfortunately, They do not know the Catechism of the Catholic Church. They are also imbued with Neocatechumenal terminology and can not get out of there.
        In this regard I wanted to ask: in the Neocatechumenal Way he is said and repeated to exhaustion that death is sin, namely, that Jesus Christ rose from the dead and conquered death, conquered sin. And this is constantly repeating in various catechetical, almost obsessively. But it is precisely in this way? That this is the only interpretation? Or even that opened the way to eternal life? Excuse me for the approximation of my question…

  55. Quite right father Ariel, Neocatechumenals know nothing, nor simple, nor great leaders.
    Since I left the way I started to inform me, to read a lot and talking to some priests do not Neocatechumenal. I realized that he knew nothing and, what I seemed to me to know, He was often distorted. And yet, in those conditions, I made the catechist for more than 25 year old.

    These days I have taken over the mamotreto the second ballot, I have the old one, before approval.

    With the consciousness of today I found there many statements and questionable concepts but, I am aware of not knowing, I feel the desire that someone competent could explain.

    I know that priests are always very busy but wonder, for my benefit and a little’ of all, What if you could at least identify some priest who can come to the aid.

    We escaped, especially people like me who has been 35 years on the road and came from “paganism”, Sometimes we feel scattered. We need guidance and language training, We have many questions, but priests often have little time to spend on the individual.
    Thank you for any help you can…

  56. I wonder if the Neocatechumenal Way to be considered approved if it violates its own Statutes, under which received approval.
    In particular, the statutes of the Neocatechumenal Way predict that this route should place itself at the service of the bishops. I wonder then how do you justify the fact that Kiko, its catechists, report that the bishops did not complacent with the Way invited to Domus Galileae (expensed around) they were “full of demons” and how, After a Eucharist in the Upper Room, of these had come down the “Holy Spirit” and, FIVE!, them had “converted” the Way. Even, After this conversion, a bishop would have exclaimed “let's get to follow him” ie to follow Kiko.
    What logic is that a Way you should ask yourself in obedience to the bishops possessed consider them when they exercise their free judgment power?
    Notice that these statements by Kiko, made during a coexistence of travel to P.S.Giorgio, you can listen to the audio.
    Here you can read the transcript:

  57. To John.


    She writes:

    “these celebrations … They are part of parish ministry and as a result are open to all the faithful”
    False. Not only do not appear in the timetable Parish, but outsiders are not allowed to enter. Who wants to try to determine if this person.

    “in these celebrations will follow the approved liturgical books of the Roman Rite, "With the exception of the explicit concessions from the Holy See" (use of unleavened bread for communion, move the Rite of Peace, communion under both species, Brief remarks and resonances)”

    False. Liturgical Books ordering that communicates BEFORE the priest, and AFTER the faithful, everyone just received the bread and without waiting for others, STAYING standing. Instead you take up the bread, Then you sit and wait for others. You have invented the distinction between Communion and consuming of.

    “introductions and resonances are granted are not therefore abuse”
    False. are any, exceptions and not the rule, should be short and not homiletic.

    Not to mention the use of plank instead consecrated altar etc..

    She did not respond to anything.
    Now I ask: because to defend the Way… [Ed. lack of conclusive words that have not come, It is not our cutting]

  58. Dear Father Ariel,

    in my simple experience “Catholic parishioner” I have often touched upon various movements but keeping me away, mainly because of experiences heard or statements of belonging that left confused and upset me and did not seem at all Orthodox.

    By reading his paper I can only thank you for having explained with competence and knowledge of the facts, about the Neocatechumenal, what I can only guess.

    Currently several acquaintances, always in vain, I invite you to approach this or that movement, I absolutely refuse to put all these experiences on the same plane (charismatics, renovation, focolarini …), I did not intend it, but I am convinced from experience, that some situations represent a serious danger for the soul of us faithful.

    And’ possible to obtain light of these movements? Where can you find balanced information to avoid falling into dangerous pitfalls, in a period of serious confusion like this, where the thirst for salvation and ignorance lead us to get close to the flames as moths?

    Thank you in advance for your attention and for his work.

    1. How Dafne,

      I believe it is necessary to admit that the basis of “issue movements” there was an excess of enthusiasm that has misled John Paul II, Why then, historically and ecclesially, who really ferried and had to manage all the phenomena of the real post-council it was he. The Holy Pope Paul VI began to have to deal with the serious problem between the 1966 and the 1978, but the bulk of all, the theological consequences to those socio-political get in and Extras ecclesial, I fell on the Holy Father John Paul II.

      The John Paul II was this error: faced with an unprecedented crisis of religious life for men and women, with historical religious orders and congregations that between 1966 and the 1976 They had suffered heavy losses numerical; before these orders and congregations of the statistics 1986 They were, some of them, in two decades, more than halved the number of men and women religious, he believed – like many other – that the future of the Church was in the movements.

      Today I know and I talk frequently with bishops ultra octogenarians, players who were excited to do so in those years, who do nothing but repeat myself as a sort of MEA culpa: "What errors of assessment, time, We made all of us together with John Paul II !».

      I state: what I think is totally irrelevant and therefore should be taken only as a free and private staff thought expressed in public. Having said that I can tell you that I believe that these movements, all, We have already completed its cycle, not to say that in many respects they failed.

      Empirical evidence shows, Movements have not favored the Church's unity but division lasua, They have not favored the unified identity of the ecclesial body but have created within the Church of personalities sometimes even exasperated and exasperating.

      Characteristic of all these movements is the inevitable conviction of having received gifts and very special gifts from the Holy Spirit, often forgetting that the charisms are authentic and valid if recognized by the Church, Church-approved, regulated by the Church and exercised in the manner commanded by the Church. Even though instead, to the test, many of these movements have taken the approval of the Church, But unless done and continue to do what they want and how they want.

      These Movements, do all, They have started to incorporate its elements and details in the sacred liturgy, often creating misunderstandings of this kind: “I'm going to the Neocatechumenal Mass … I go to the Charismatic Mass … I go to Mass Focolare …”
      And here go to making people understand that the Mass is not that or that other Movement!

      Other error occurred under Pope St. John Paul II: have allowed several of these movements, for lack of priests in certain regions of the world, to open and operate their own seminaries for the formation of diocesan priests, which in fact they are then results, more than priests the bishop, Movement of the Priests of formats for the Movement and the Movement service. Is this, sincerely, John Paul II never should have that, and today they are reaping the consequences, often unfortunately also very unhappy.

      This season that began since the early seventies, all they believed to rediscover suddenly the Holy Spirit, that the early Church, however, was down two millennia before; although many have believed and thought that it had finally come down only at the beginning of the Sixties. And in the name of the Holy Spirit, we have actually witnessed one of the largest intra-ecclesial confusion that we had never had.

      What to do?

      You choose a parish which takes place at least a decent living, and in which a priest, the bishop follows the portion of the People of God entrusted to it, carrying out their ministry to the bishop and the diocese of service Christi fideles.

      And if anything,, say a prayer from time to time to the movements at sunset. If anything, even a prayer for those who have nothing better to do than to open the process of beatification of certain founders of lay movements, if anything, even as the Carabinieri and the Guardia di Finanza arrested for serious crimes of fraud, peculation, misappropriation, falsification of official acts, etc. … several of the members of that movement, which they had entered from the first hour and in which they had been trained by the founder of the Movement in person, almost as if a tree does not recognize the fruits that …

      1. … but why do not they appoint cardinal secretary of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, maybe we solve some problems.

        1. No, forget it: the problems would instead increased dramatically.
          And then I do not think of becoming a red dress, I prefer to wear black for a lifetime.
          Although well whores on duty to dress in red, however with a difference: at least they have the professional series and you always assume all the responsibilities arising from their work.

          1. La volgarità del prete Ariel, prima o poi salta sempre fuori,
            To this, November, nel Cammino non siamo abituati.
            E ciò la qualifica!

          2. Caro Leonardo,

            io credo che ci siano dei limiti a tutto, persino all’ipocrisia.
            Questo scambio di battute tra un mio confratello napoletano e me, per stemperare l’aria, non ha nulla di volgare.
            A meno che lei non voglia censurare il 90% dei film di Alberto Sordi, proiettati da anni e anni nei cinema parrocchiali.

            In privato, St. John Paul II, ai prelati stranieri che prendevano servizio a Roma, soleva dire «Se vuoi capire la romanità, devi vedere The Marchese del Grillo».

            Se vuole invece la informo io a dovere: correva esattamente l’anno 1985 quando a Roma vi fu un incontro tra i responsabili e fondatori dei vari Movimenti, tra cui Kiko e Carmen. Tra i presenti anche quella delicatissima e amabile Signora di Chiara Lubic e quell’indubbio sant’uomo del Padre Luigi Giussani.

            E fu proprio il fondatore di Comunione e Liberazione che, dopo aver visto ripetutamente impallidire Chiara Lubic, richiamò la diva Carmen Hernandez ad un linguaggio più consono, perché in pubblico, del tutto incurante della presenza di uomini e donne, di sacerdoti e di un vescovo, animandosi nel discorso prese a dire «cazzo, dick!» ogni quattro o cinque parole.

            Io non ero presente, però erano presenti ben quattro sacerdoti che oggi sono rispettivamente: due arcivescovi emeriti, uno dei quali cardinale, un vescovo diocesano tutt’oggi in carica, ed un’altro sacerdote che attualmente è arcivescovo segretario di un dicastero della Santa Sede.

            E tutti sono sani, vegeti e pronti all’occorrenza a confermare come testimoni oculari quel che ho appena detto.

            Therefore, in risposta al suo autentico eccesso di pudore, posso assicurarle che, se allo scoccare dei cinque anni dalla morte, troverete un vescovo diocesano disposto ad aprire la prima fase del processo diocesano per la beatificazione della diva Carmen, molto ragionevolmente, con le debite prove e testimonianze, la proporremmo come la «Beata del cazzo!».

            Al suo scandalo per la altrui volgaritàperaltro laddove la volgarità non c’èaggiunga il fatto che nella sola Italia esiste un esercito di preti che a nominargli la parola Neocatecumenali impallidiscono, perché dai Neocatecumenali sono stati aggrediti e offesi in pubblico davvero a male parole.

            Al Padre Ciro, che ha fatto questa battuta alla quale io ho risposto con un’altra battuta, un catechista neocatecumenale lo interruppe mentre durante la Santa Messa teneva la omelia nella propria parrocchia, years ago, dicendo ad alta voce ai fratelli e sorelle del Cammino «uscite assieme a me e non ascoltate queste cazzate!».

            Riprendiamo dunque il discorso da capo: chi sarebbe, il volgare?

          3. allora diciamola tutta: eravamo nel 2002 e quella domenica di Pentecoste feci un’omelia sui doni dello Spirito Santo.
            Senza riferimento a nessuno, tanto meno ai neocat.

            Un catechista, che aveva sproloquiato in precedenza in varie catechesi sullo Spirito Santo (ma io questo non lo sapevo e non potevo saperlo), si sentì, like, “criticatodinanzi ai suoi catechizzandi, e per essere precisi esordì così (le decine di persone che erano presenti lo ricordano sempre) :

            «Ma smettila, clown!». E rivolto ai suoi disse: «Andiamo via perché non dovete sentire queste cazzate, why this, in dieci minuti, rovina quel che io ho fatto con voi in mesi di catechesi».

            Le persone rimasero allibite.

            Sono un cosiddetto povero dottore in diritto canonico e posso dire che sia per la legge canonica sia per la legge penale italiana, interrompere a questo modo una azione di culto riconosciuta dallo Stato che si svolge all’interno di un luogo di culto riconosciuto, è un reato penalmente perseguibile, yesterday and today, perché il codice di diritto penale è rimasto sempre lo stesso, ed il codice di diritto canonico, pure.

            Non so se sei più bugiardo o ipocrita. Basta leggersi i mamotreti per vedere l’innumerevole quantità di turpiloquio presente.
            In più DA NESSUNO ho mai sentito chiamate “asshole” un sacerdotetranne da membri del cammino.
            In questo siete perfettamente riconoscibili.

            I peggiori bigotti rispetto a voi sono dei santi.

      2. Don Ariel ha dato una risposta da par suo, pur con molta umiltà non volendo innalzarla a più di un’opinione personale. I, da semplice fedele, mi ci ritrovo e benedico Iddio per aver ispirato la mia famiglia a non inserirmi in alcuna conventicola, nonostante le insistenze dell’allora parroco (for charity, sant’uomo per molti aspetti). Perché se ci sono state responsabilità in alto, va detto che c’è stata (e c’è tutt’ora) una specie di ossessione da parte dei preti adinfilarela gente in questo o quel movimento; sospetto per una forma particolare di clericalismo, per poter poi mantenere una forma di controllo indiretto.

        A Dafne vorrei solo aggiungere, avendo dovuto fare un paio ditraslochiparrocchiali, tre criteri iniziali per testare un buon prete: to) che sia ortodosso b) che celebri in modo rispettoso e riverente c) che sia umile. Le prime due cose sono facilmente verificabili. Per la terza: se trova un prete amato dai parrocchiani, ma senza esaltazioni e con un tasso fisiologico di mormorazione (cosa pur brutta in sé), questi sono per me buoni segni. Se trova una superstar esaltata da tutti, vuol dire che quel prete si è costruito la sua setta personale, and it's…

  59. Dear Don Ariel patiently I read his esposizione.La appreciate but wonder:What to do with our discussion?We are not discussing the dogmas of the Church,nor we said that the approval of the Statute is a definitive truth of faith or is definitional etc.Le I ever made similar statements?I do not think so,I do not understand then his speech vaguely resembling the character of Don Quixote,who built, fancifully , nonexistent castles to lash contro.Non was never told that the Way is a dogma ,But the problem is that between dogma and not be “sect” the “heretic” there is a clear differenza.Il Way will not be a dogma,who ever said it,but it certainly is not a sect or a receptacle of heretics,as she instead mistakenly sostiene.Del rest say that the Way is heretical sect or the same as saying that the catechism of children's sectarian and heretical because it takes place in the children's classes and separatamente.Perchè perhaps you do not understand that the Way is neither an association nor a movement,but a post-baptismal Catholic Initiation for Adults.

  60. If she does not publish I mean it is unable to get on ,the rest I'm not his schoolboy,nor am I obliged to answer his domande.Pensavo you could discuss calmly ,But if she does not intend to continue, You tell me openly ritirerò.Penso of them responded abundantly,Then if you are looking specious arguments and specious say it would be useless to continue. I would just ask if you just accept the extraordinary Magisterium, infallible , definitional and the Ordinary Magisterium of the Pope and definitive?Dismisses then everything else ?Do not accept the ordinary and authentic Magisterium?For if she is among those who reject Vatican II?I hope not poprio!The approval of the Way is not a dogma ,my Dad it,who is the Vicar of Christ,welcomes and encourages this journey of faith,which it means that the positive believes. Believing that the Camino is a heretic sect or,It is equivalent to think that the Successor of Peter wrong to encourage him and what,somehow,tantamount to question the authority of many bishops refuse Papa.Del rest Summorum Pontificum and not take kindly groups Tridentine Mass?I do know some.

    1. … scusi, why her – evidently ignorant catechists – They never given a proper definition of the magisterium?
      MDL, What it is the teaching and what teaching?
      She is proving, scrambling as a person who has an idea to say the least confusing to Catholic doctrine and ecclesiology, He did not know precisely the rudiments of the doctrine of the faith.

      And remember that the Roman Pontiff, Vicar of Christ, even when it is repeatedly said there, orally and in writing:

      1. to abide scrupulously liturgical books ;
      2. not to omit and add nothing to the Roman Missal;
      3. not exclusively use the Second Eucharistic Prayer, but also all other, understood and including the Roman Canon.

      Even if that was the Vicar of Christ, but at any time can be tested without penalty denial that these provisions given and repeated by the Vicar of Christ, you do not force yourself, evidently because you have another vicar: Kiko Arguello.

      These are the proven facts, his are rather talk.

  61. About Mons.Annibale Bugnini ,to inform you that I personally knew one of his secretaries who worked for him in the years of the liturgical reform. I also know one of his students. She repeats the usual clichés of Bugnini detractors,the fact is that on the internet on sites pseudo traditionalists circulating some news but I have some news, a person who knew him personally, and attended to the facts ,perhaps not even when she was born or was little more than infants. The person I met told me that Pope Paul VI was in tears when he had to dismiss Bugnini and they had to pacify the environment of the Curia. The prosecution then to belong to Freemasonry is a hoax invented by some cardinal of the Curia,which even I know the name,but say nothing of Christian charity and also because .is passed away,peace to sua.Le charges against Bugnini are false because it is attributed to the faults of the liturgical reform,which was commissioned by Pope Paul VI.Padre Bugnini was only an executor.

    The accusation of belonging to Freemasonry is based on the Mino Pecorelli newspaper called OP? We know very well how ambiguous was the journalist and hung around in troubled waters. It not by chance was murdered mercilessly. A character is connected to the secret services diverted. I remind you that the grand master of the Masons then, Lino Salvini ,the 10 August then declared the newspaper Panorama:"Cardinals in the lodge we do not have. In this list (of 114 prelates published on Panorama,)I know of only four people, and it does not mean that they are Masons. Besides the masonry files there is nothing that resembles the sequence of registration date, badge number, monogram, that appears in the list '. And the head of the French Freemasonry Richard Dupuy pointed to the TV not without a touch of contempt: 'After the abbot Baruel and Leo Taxil Bishop. Lefebvre took over the old rancid themes of Freemasonry ' ".

    Therefore BUAN code name and the initials attached that read on OP are falsehoods. What Pope Paul VI had believed,It proves nothing.

    Therefore BUAN code name and the initials attached that read on OP are falsità.Che Pope Paul VI had believed,It proves nothing.

    1. In my response / question I have not referred to these urban legends, Masonry from the plots and the plots various, because I always tried to be a serious scholar.

      Therefore, the history of the Church, dogmatic sacramental, the liturgy and the movement of the liturgical reform that comes to life at the end of the nineteenth, I have not studied them on the Internet, but in many other ways and on many other sources.

      Based on a fact, I just wondered why the Holy Pope Paul VI sent Hannibal Bugnini in Persia, today Iran, why he would not receive him, and would never see him again. In all urban legends from her tumbler and she widely known because as she says circulating for years on the Internet, I have not even had the vaguest allusion, precisely because they are well other sources to which I draw.

      I agree with you that:

      "What Pope Paul VI had believed, nothing proves ".

      Although I doubt that a fine mind like that of Paul VI, and great connoisseur of the Roman Curia in which he spent most of his life before he was appointed by Pope Pius XII Archbishop of Milan, he believed in such things. But even if he believed there, what is irrelevant.

      Instead, if St. John Paul II to experiment, Benedict XVI definitively and precise conditions, approve the Directory of the Neocatechumenal, This perhaps proves conclusively that the Way is absolutely the Holy Spirit and that all the faithful are to accept this as an element of faith, as “established” two by the Pontiffs their congratulations at the beginning of a speech but to which they immediately followed twenty different reminders to get in line and to comply with bishops, pastors, parish communities, individual freedom to leave the Way, compliance of mission areas populations, the liturgical books, etc. …?

      Again, I believe we can and that we should apply the following principle: John Paul II and Benedict XVI have possibly believed the tall tales of Kiko and Carmen, this does not prove anything, but above all it does not bind to an adherence of faith towards the other Catholics Way.

  62. The John speeches I have heard them hundreds of times. And’ useless to hope in a slightest awareness also of simple absurdity of certain of its arguments.

    Rather I would ask him if he has any thoughts on DEFINITIVE condemnation of the Neocatechumenal bishop of GUAM, Apuron, for pedophilia.

    Guam has for decades been a place where the path he did what he wanted. In which esautoravano priests who were not part and forced – I stress forced -, the seminarians to be part of it.

    The same Kiko Arguello has publicly defended talking about “persecution” and, proof of this, the bishop (convicted at first instance) He was present on stage for the fifty years of the journey to Rome.

    Apuron was publicly defended in every way, licit and illicit, from the way in the person of its high places: Gennarini (responsible for the United States) and Kiko Arguello same.

    Dear John, I want to refute?
    What do you think?

  63. Someone, for example, explains, as never before in Nc Mass we will never kneel during the Consecration and that always recite the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed never-Constantinople?

    On this second venture an answer my question: It has to do with the fact that it was composed and promulgated during the reign of the infamous Constantine?

    And if not why, because I never recite the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed?

    Because this (and other) Unlike the Mass of Paul VI?

  64. Scusi Don Ariel perché lei chiama ignoranti persone che nemmeno conosce? Offendere le persone è peccato e lei lo sa benissimo. Sa benissimo che S. Paolo disse:”Nessuna parola cattiva esca più dalla vostra bocca”. Perchè questa presunzione di giudicare cose e persone che non conosce?Giudicare e sentenziare su cose che forse non ha capito?E’ una persona colta?Ok va bene ed io la rispetto,ma dovrebbe avere lo stesso rispetto per gli altri. Sarà anche colto, non ne dubito, ma non è mica infallibile? Le rammento che S.Paolo ha detto che se non abbiamo la carità ,non abbiamo nulla. Lei esprime la sua opinione ed io la rispetto,non le piace il Cammino?All right, lo accetto, non è detto che debba piacere a tutti,ma perché pronuncia questi giudizi temerari tacciando addirittura di “eresia” e di “settarismo”‘?

    L’infallibilità del Magistero Papale è riservata a pochi casi,come lei stesso ha detto quindi non tutto il magistero investe l’infallibilità. Tuttavia non è pensabile che esiste un magistero fallibile, per cui il Papa, possa sbagliare in qualche suo pronunciamento. La parola Magistero e errore sono in contrasto. Il magistero del Papa è dupilce,come lei sa, può essere un magistero ordinario infallibile, se propone un insegnamento definitivo. Oppure può essere un magistero ordinario autentico e basta. Pensare che questo ultimo tipo di magistero sia fallibile è certamente un errore e non voglio credere che lei pensi questo. Il magistero in quanto tale, soprattutto perché è garantito, non può contenere errori,pertanto non è fallibile. La Chiesa nel suo magistero non impegna sempre il suo carisma di infallibilità,questo è il caso del Cammino, infatti la Chiesa si limita a proporlo,come itinerario di formazione cattolica,ma non lo impone,ma dato che il carisma delle chiavi è stato dato solo a Pietro ed i suoi successori,questi ha più discernimento nella Chiesa,di chiunque altro Vescovo,pertanto se questi,,approva Cammino,come itinerario di fede,significa che viene da Dio.

    Ma mi faccia capire, lei pensa che Giovanni Paolo II, Benedetto XVI e Papa Francesco abbiamo sbagliato ad approvare e sostenere il Cammino? Se ho capito bene,lei affermerebbe che, poiché il Cammino non è dogma, nè appartiene al Magistero infallibile e irreformabile, allora è possibile che la sua approvazione sia errata e pertanto può essere rifiutata? Dice questo? Queste sono, more or less, le stesse tesi di quelli che vogliono mettere in dubbio la validità del Vaticano II, sostenendo che lo Spirito Santo si sarebbe ritirato dalla Chiesa e poiché è un Concilio pastorale può essere rifiutato? Beh se dice questo credo proprio che si sbagli. Anche se l’approvazione del Cammino ,non investe l’ infallibilità del Papa,non è pensabile che Giovanni Paolo II abbia errato perché il Papa ,proprio perchè è particolarmente assistito dallo Spirito,ha un discernimento maggiore di chiunque altro nella Chiesa. Negarlo significherebbe mettere in dubbio l’azione dello Spirito Santo e ciò non è accettabile per un cattolico. Lei sa bene che lo Spirito assiste il Papa anche quando non si esprime ex cathedra. Se pensa il contrario,non sono assolutamente d’accordo. Se fosse così saremmo come i protestanti.

    1. Dear John,

      Le chiarisco anzitutto che “ignoranza” o “ignorante” non è un’offesa. L’etimo deriva dal latino ignorantia, in greco ἀμάθεια, ed in entrambi i casi indica la mancanza di sapere, di conoscenza basilare o approfondita di una data cosa. Quindi non è un’offesa, né un termine dispregiativo, al punto che nel lessico sia filosofico sia teologico si parla di learned ignorance the holy ignorance, soprattutto per indicare persone di buona volontà e intenzioni, che però mancano di conoscenza, ed alle quali non è affatto preclusa la santità, dato che gli elenchi dei santi sono pieni di clamorosi ignoranti nel senso etimologico del termine; abbiamo persino una analfabeta proclamata dottore della Chiesa, St. Caterina da Siena. Pertanto non scomodi, first, San Paolo Apostolo a sproposito in questo contesto.

      A lei non è forse chiaro – poco male – di essersi messo a interloquire con un teologo dogmatico, dogmatico-sacramentario e storico del dogma, poco male, no problem, può capitare. Allora le ricordo che la dogmatica è la branca delle teologia più complessa, che richiede di necessità anche profonde cognizioni storiche, perché i dogmi e le relative discipline, si inseriscono in storie molto antiche e molto complesse. Da qui nascono le vere e proprie idiozie affermate nel corso degli anni da Kiko e Carmen, specie quando si riempivano la bocca di «ritorno alle origini» o «chiesa delle origini», dimostrando con i loro sproloqui di non conoscere – e ripeto dimostrando – né le origini né la Chiesa delle origini.

      Inutilmente io le ho portato in precedenza l’esempio che lei ha rifiutato però di cogliere, quando a proposito delle mie personali ignoranze le ho detto: «io senza calcolatrice non sono capace neppure a fare le divisioni, per questo se fossi invitato ad un convegno di matematici, non oserei mai aprire bocca, mi metterei in un angolo, ascolterei e di sicuro non capirei niente, perché sono un ignorante».

      Io sono stato chiarissimo, ad esempio indicandole una delle mie tante ignoranze, che non è certo l’unica. Lei che però dimostra di essere cresciuto nel meglio del peggio del Cammino Neocatecumenale a pane, superbia e Spirito Santo elettivo, è stato sordo a qualsiasi genere di ragionevole richiamo, seguitando a inviare commenti che non stanno né in cielo né in terra, come chiunque può appurare leggendoli e come quest’ultimo nel quale mi dice:

      «Ma mi faccia capire, lei pensa che Giovanni Paolo II, Benedetto XVI e Papa Francesco abbiamo sbagliato ad approvare e sostenere il Cammino? Se ho capito bene,lei affermerebbe che, poiché il Cammino non è dogma, nè appartiene al Magistero infallibile e irreformabile, allora è possibile che la sua approvazione sia errata e pertanto può essere rifiutata? Dice questo? Queste sono, more or less, le stesse tesi di quelli che vogliono mettere in dubbio la validità del Vaticano II, sostenendo che lo Spirito Santo si sarebbe ritirato dalla Chiesa e poiché è un Concilio pastorale può essere rifiutato

      Questa sua affermazione è un autentico delirio che insulta non me, ma qualsiasi intelligenza cattolica. Il tutto per varie ragioni, from the first: per come si esprime e dal modo confuso in cui si esprime, è presto deducibile che lei, per di più con uno studioso della materia, cita il Concilio Vaticano II come se fosse uno slogan, ma purtroppo non sarebbe mai capace, dinanzi ad una platea di ascoltatori, di analizzare ed illustrare uno solo dei suoi documenti. E questo non lo dico e non lo affermo io, ma lo dimostra lei stesso, con ciò che scrive e per come lo scrive.

      Quindi lei giunge ad accusare tra le righe il suo interlocutore, sacerdote e teologo, che coloro che mettono in dubbio la validità del Cammino Neocatecumenale sono come quelli che vogliono mettere in dubbio la validità del Concilio Vaticano II. Affermazione non semplicemente inqualificabile, ma veramente aberrante [da latino aberrare, ossia errare].

      Le rispondo quindi dicendole senza problema che sì, io credo che Giovanni Paolo II, Benedetto XVI e Francesco I abbiano sbagliato ad approvare il Cammino e che questa loro scelta non è ad alcun titolo vincolante né è materia ed oggetto di fede. Esattamente come molti loro predecessori hanno sbagliato a prendere tante altre decisioni, sia pastorali sia politiche, che non implicavano da parte dei fedeli alcun genere di obbligo a prestare ad esse adesione di fede e condivisione.

      Lei ha dato ripetuto ed ostinato saggio di quello che è il perfetto neocatecumenale emotivo, irrazionale e privo di senso logico.

      Potete strillare da mattino a sera tutte le approvazioni pontificie che volete, ma resta il fatto che non siete mai stati approvati con un motu proprio summorum pontificum esteso a tutta la Chiesa Cattolica, ma con un decreto del Pontificio Consiglio per i Laici, attraverso un atto di natura puramente amministrativa, do not magisteriale e meno che mai dottrinale.

      Le ribadisco e quindi le faccio di nuovo notare che la tanto sbandierata approvazione del 2012 [see text WHO], è un atto di natura puramente amministrativa di dieci righe stringate e striminzite, nelle quali non è nominato né direttamente né indirettamente il Romano Pontefice, come invece avviene in molti altri decreti dei Dicasteri o dei Pontifici segretariati della Santa Sede, nel quale è usata invece la formula: «Il Sommo Pontefice ne ha richiesta l’approvazione», oppure «il Sommo Pontefice ha visto ed approvato». Therefore, whether you like it or not – ma questi sono i fatti reali e non passibili di smentita – to 43 anni di distanza dalla fondazione del Cammino Neocatecumenale voi avete infine ricevuto dieci righe firmate dal Presidente del Pontificio Segretariato per i Laici e senza alcun riferimento neppure indiretto al Sommo Pontefice. Vuole forse negarlo?
      E lei mi paragona la non accettazione di dieci righe amministrative scritte da un Cardinale a quella che è l’adesione di fede dovuta ad un concilio ecumenico !?!

      Se lei prende invece una istruzione della Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti, nella quale tra l’altro sono condannati tutti gli abusi liturgici che da decenni i neocatecumenali compiono in modo ostinato, namely Redempionis Sacramentum, potrà appurare che anche questo documento è firmato da un Cardinaleil vostro “friend” Francis Arinze e dall’Arcivescovo segretario Domenico Sorrentinoma alla fine di esso vi troverà scritte queste parole:

      «Questa Istruzione, redatta, per disposizione del Sommo Pontefice Giovanni Paolo II, dalla Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti d’intesa con la Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, è stata approvata dallo stesso Pontefice il 19 March 2004, nella solennità di san Giuseppe, il quale ne ha disposto la pubblicazione e l’immediata osservanza da parte di tutti coloro a cui spetta».

      Tutte queste cose elementari, to her, non sono proprio chiare?

      Eppure ho cercato, perdendo non poco tempo, di spiegargliele in ogni modo. Dunque le ripeto: Finché un Romano Pontefice non dichiara questa vostra approvazione vincolante per tutti i fedeli della Chiesa Cattolica che devono quindi accoglierla con l’adesione di fede richiesta da un atto di magistero, io resto libero di dire quel che dico, compreso il fatto che a mio parere, questi Sommi Pontefici, hanno sbagliato a dare riconoscimento a quel covo di ignoranti, presuntuosi ed eretici che lei, obstinately, sta purtroppo rappresentando in modo davvero mirabile.

      E se ritiene di avere ragioni contro di me, si rivolga al mio Ordinario Diocesano e alla Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, ma non ci scriva più di simili scemenze, perché la pazienza è stata esaurita e noi non le pubblicheremo più sproloqui di questo genere, non altro per il rispetto che dobbiamo avere del nostro tempo e del cui buon impiego dovremo rendere conto seriamente a Dio.

      Believe me, la peggiore amarezza di un pastore in cura d’anime, ma proprio la peggiore in assoluto, è quella di perdere tempo, come ho fatto io, con soggetti che come lei si dicono cattolici, ma che rifiutano di capire, non vogliono capire e stravolgono in modo polemico tutto ciò che di dottrinalmente ragionevole gli dici.

      E dinanzi a questa gente, it is clear, non ha fallito né la Chiesa né i sacerdoti come me, hanno clamorosamente fallito Kiko e Carmen dando vita, to the test, ad un mostro, quindi a dei settari che rifiutano di capire, che non vogliono capire e che stravolgono in modo polemico tutto ciò che di dottrinalmente ragionevole gli dici.

      Il Signore la benedica e l’assista nel cammino verso la vera fede battesimale.

      1. Ariel Caro,

        mentre rispondevi al Sig. John, avresti potuto impiegare quel tempo per scrivere chissà quale interessante articolo. Soddisfacente per te, a livello teologico e pastorale, e utile per noi, che ti leggiamo sempre tanto volentieri, e che prendiamo non pochi spunti, come ad esempio io per le mie omelie.
        In queste lunghe e ripetute risposte, con chi di fatto nega e rifiuta ogni ragionamento, e che butta tutto in botta/risposta polemici e fini a se stessi, si percepisce veramente il tuo cuore sacerdotale.
        Potevi limitarti a cestinare il tutto e a non perdere tempo, ma evidentemente tu credi per davvero, e fino in fondo, all’importanza del riportare la pecora sulla retta via verso l’ovile.
        Se da tutto questo il Sig. Giovanni non ha imparato niente, to me, as a priest, hai imparato molto, e ricordato molto, di quella che è la nostra missione.

        1. Don Alberto,

          hai ragione e condivido tutto di ciò che hai scritto, d’altronde conosciamo il confratello in questione e sappiamo (conoscendolo) a quali livelli è amorevole proprio quando cerca, for instance, di essere severo, la dove è necessario esserlo.
          A te ed a chi ci leggi dico in breve questo, to clarify, ed ai laici lo dico invece per chiarire quella che a volte è la nostra difficilissima situazione di parroci

          Adesso immaginate un prete di 33 anni mandato in una parrocchia dove da 20 erano insediati i neocatecumenali, dove i gruppi neocatecumenali presenti erano in totale 7.
          Here, immaginatevi un prete di 33 anni che deve comunicare, scontrarsi e prendersi improperi non da un Sig. John, ma da 30/40 Themselves. John!

          Quando non ce la fece più, venne in parrocchia con me, in 2013, di anni ne aveva 35, e per riprendersi fisicamente e psicologicamente ci ha impiegato due anni. E volete sapere, a ogni tentativo che compì per metterli un minimo in ordine, che cosa replicavano i 30/40 vari Sig. John? This: “la Chiesa ci ha approvati! Il Papa ci ha approvati!”. Therefore: se tu non fai come diciamo noi, non sei con il Papa e non sei nella Chiesa.

          Ma a noi preti, chi ci pensa più, da diversi decenni a questa parte, chi ci pensa più?

          1. Salve Confratelli,

            offro un breve contributo.
            Io non conosco padre Ariel se non per i suoi scritti, però ho conosciuto in passato, visitando miei familiari a Cagliari, another of the Fathers of the Island of Patmos, father Ivano, quando era al convento dei cappuccini, adesso è cappellano nell’ospedale di questa città, ottimo uomo, frate e sacerdote.
            Ritengo che il sig. John, in quella che è la scala dei neocat sia una persona molto tranquilla, pensate, io quando ero parroco della prima parrocchia a me affidata 15 years ago, rischiai di essere preso a botte da queste gran care persone, solo per aver osato dire che alla veglia pasquale non volevo il preconio schitarrato sulle musiche di Kiko, e non è un modo di dire, rischiai proprio di essere preso a botte sul serio.

            EH, dear Don Angelo, say well … “chi ci pensa a noi preti”?

            Un saluto da Sassari
            don Giovanni

          2. Ma stiamo scherzando !?
            Un decreto amministrativo del Pontificio consiglio per i laici messo sul solito piano della accettazione de fide di un concilio ecumenico?
            E se con questi tipi noi cerchiamo di parlare di cose ovvie, assolutamente ovvie, ci rimbrottano pure in questo modo, come se loro fossero i maestri e noi gli scolaretti?

            Allora se il Pontificio consiglio per la cultura pubblica un testo nel quale pone in risalto l’architettura sacra moderna, cosa vuol dire? Che io, parroco di una chiesa del XVI secolo, devo abbatterla e ricostruirla su altri criteri?
            Come dice sacrosantamente padre Ariel: sono dieci righe di un decreto amministrativo concesso dopo quasi mezzo secolo e con la ulteriore speranza di metterli in riga, solo e nient’altro che un decreto di un pontificio consiglio firmato dal cardinal presidente. Un decreto che non obbliga nessun vescovo, nessun sacerdote e nessun fedele né a condividerli né ad accettarli.

            Con questo è presto detto in quali tremende situazioni ci siamo ritrovati noi parroci quando dopo il 2012 ci si presentavano i NC nelle parrocchie sbattendoci queste dieci righe in faccia e dicendoci (come diceva sopra Don Angelo) che la Chiesa li aveva approvati, i Papi li avevano approvati, sicché noi eravamo obbligati. Ma obbligati a che cosa, forse a mettergli in mano le parrocchie, a fargli montare tavoli da trattoria dentro le chiese, a voltare le spalle all’altare consacrato, e a fargli fare ciò che volevano?

            Con me il discorso dell’approvazione lo fece anche un diacono NC che io rimproverai dicendogli di non azzardarsi più a stare in piedi impettito all’altare davanti all’assemblea durante la Preghiera Eucaristica mentre io mi genuflettevo due volte. Ecco subito la tiritera “la Chiesa ci ha approvati, i Papi ci hanno approvati”. Gli dissi “fammi vedere dove la Chiesa e i Papi approvano che il diacono stia in piedi durante la Preghiera Eucaristica davanti a tutti mentre il presbitero si genuflette due volte”. E gli dissi “tu, nella mia parrocchia, non sei gradito, e non devi tornare più a prestar servizio”.
            Andò a protestare dal vescovo, dicendo anche a lui“la Chiesa ci ha approvati, i Papi ci hanno approvati”. Il vescovo gli rispose: “se il parroco non ti gradisce, avrà i suoi motivi pastorali, se poi il motivo è quello che mi hai detto, sappi che sono d’accordo con il parroco, why me, che sono il vescovo, mi inginocchio sempre”.

            In conclusion, è inutile … non ci si ragiona, non ci si ragiona …

  65. Penso che il comportamento di Giovanni sia emblematico.

    Due aspetti mi sembrano molto gravi: il fatto che i neocatecumenali manchino di logica (soprattutto del principio di non contraddizione e del principio di identità) e la loro diffusa ignoranza e incultura (le due cose sono legate). Non capiscono che dire una cosa e poi l’opposto non ha senso. Non sanno cosa sia il culto e perché si fa in un modo o in un altro: arriva uno con la voce grossa che dice che è così perché lo dice la Madonna, e pensano che sia così. Oppure “si faceva nei primi secoli”, ma nessuno saprebbe verificare se è vero. Stessa cosa per teologia e tutto il resto.
    An example?

    Il pittore iberico negli anni ’70 deliziava i suoi satrapi con bestemmie di tale portata:

    «Forse che Dio ha bisogno del sangue del suo Figlio, del suo sacrificio, per placarsi? What kind of God we did? Siamo arrivati a pensare che Dio placava la sua ira nel sacrificio del suo Figlio alla maniera degli dei pagani. Per questo gli atei dicevano: “che tipo di Dio sarà quello che riversa la sua ira contro suo Figlio nella Croce?”» (p. 333 del Direttorio, pre-approvazione).

    Salvo poi contraddirsi dopo decenni. Nel suo libro “Il Kerigma” scrive infatti:

    «Pensate che santi come Abramo, Isacco, Moses, Davide non potevano entrare in Cielo. Hanno dovuto rimanere nello sheol, perchè il Cielo era chiuso. Why? Perchè non è lo stesso che tu dia uno schiaffo ad un ragazzino che un pugno ad un poliziotto, per non dire al capo dello Stato, true? Well, il peccato originale ha un peso infinito, un valore infinito, perchè ha offeso Dio, e solamente potevamo essere redenti da Dio stesso. Cristo è Dio e perciò la sua morte redentrice ha un valore infinito ed ha potuto aprire il Cielo per tutta l’umanità»

    Non vi siete resi conto dell’inversione a U? Non sarebbe intellettualmente onesto ritrattare e chiedere perdono per i gravi errori diffusi (in questo caso nell’ambito della soteriologia)?

    E dato che l’intera prassi liturgica del Cammino si basa su una dogmatica eterodossa, una volta modificata la lex credendi, non sarebbe logico (dato che ne è l’esplicazione) cambiare una volta per tutte la lex orandi?

    Se Kiko (come spero) adesso accetta la teologia della soddisfazione vicaria (che è dogma di Fede) perché non mostra di aver cambiato idea ad esempio invitando i sacerdoti del Cammino a celebrare la Santa Messa risaltandone l’aspetto primariamente sacrificale, mediante il rispetto delle norme liturgiche?

    1. perché non mostra di aver cambiato idea ad esempio invitando i sacerdoti del Cammino a celebrare la Santa Messa risaltandone l’aspetto primariamente sacrificale, mediante il rispetto delle norme liturgiche?

      Forse perché la liturgia può essere didatticamente molto più efficace delle parole scritte in un documento? Così che uno può dire: i documenti sono stati cambiati, io sono a posto; nel frattempo la liturgia continua a veicolare i contenuti precedenti

  66. Touché!
    Hai centrato in pieno il contenuto implicito del mio commento.
    Il fatto è che loro ne fanno una questione di carta bollata, adesso che hanno il timbro, ciò che era eretico diventa di punto in bianco magicamente ortodosso.

    Grazie Fabrizio

  67. Rev.do Don Ariel, prendo atto del fatto che lei pensi che tre Papi abbiano sbagliato a sostenere ed approvare il Cammino.Evidentemente lei ha più discernimento di questi quattro Papi di cui due santi.Cosa dire?Non ci sono commenti da fare,la cosa si commenta da sola.Le faccio notare però che alcuni Vescovi e Sacerdoti,pensano la stessa cosa del Summorum Pontificum,lo ritengono un errore pastorale di Benedetto XVI,qualcuno sostiene anche teologico,dato che l’approvazione del nuovo Messale di Paolo VI nel 1969,avrebbe fatto decadere quello di Pio V,essendo il secondo la versione riformata del primo.Non è il mio pensiero questo,ma c’è qualche presule,ache eminente,che lo pensa.Lei quindi si sente maggiormente favorito dallo Spirito Santo del dono del discernimento?Lo trovo strano,dal momento che a me hanno insegnato che il Papa,in the Church,ha più discernimento,per l’ufficio che ricopre,di qualsiasi altro battezzato,fosse anche Vescovo.Io non sono certamente un teologo, anche se studio teologia,ad un livello più basso del suo,ma un ragionamento simile mi desta molto sospetto.

    Lei afferma che l’approvazione del Cammino sarebbe un atto amministrativo non magisteriale.Mi sembra un cavillo giuridico piuttosto capzioso,che però non cambia la sostanza.La Costituzione Pastor Bonus ,approvata da San Giovanni Paolo II,delegava al Pontificio Consiglio per i laici ,la facoltà di esaminare,controllare ed approvare le realtà laicali.Essendo il Cammino una realtà prevlentemente laicale,non poteva che essere il suddetto dicastero ad occuparsene.A dire il vero il direttorio catechetico del Cammino è stato esaminato più volte,prima dalla Cong.per il Clero,i primi volumi,nel 1977,poi successivamente negli anni novanta,a seguito della polemica di Padre Enrico Zoffoli,poi nel periodo 1997-2008 se non sbaglio dalla Congregzione per la dottrina della fede.In ogni caso,anche accettando quello che lei dice,la sostanza non cambia,anche perché l’eventuale atto amministrativo è stato fatto con l’assenso del Papa.Anzi se prorprio lo vuole sapere lo Statuto fu voluto da G.P.II.Quindi se pensa che l’approvazione sia un qualcosa avvenuto a prescindere dal Papa,you are wrong.

    Lei continua a mettermi sulla bocca parole che non ho detto,non ho detto quello che lei riporta sul Vaticano II,ora è lei che manipola.Le faccio notare che la Sacramentum non fu scritta per condannare gli errori del Cammino,la sua è una interpretazione forzata ma èun documento universale, che non condanna affatto il Cammino. Dato che lei ama bearsi delle sottigliezze teologiche,le faccio notare che è entrato in contraddizione,given that, precedentemente ha affermato di ritenere l’approvazione del Cammino sbagliata,e di potrelo fare ,non essendo l’approvazione un atto magisteriale infallibile del Papa. Però poi si appella alla istruzione Redemptoris Sacramentum,che non è un atto magisteriale del Papa,nè tantomeno infallibile,ma della Cong.per il Culto Divino.Non è né una lettera apostolica, nè una enciclica,nè una esortazione apostolica,pertanto ragionando come fa lei, potrei pensare, ma non lo penso, che sia sbagliata e rifiutarla.Mi dice che le disposizioni contenenti sono emanazione della volontà del Papa?Beh perché lo Statuto cosa è?Fu voluto da Giovanni Paolo II e ratificato da Benedetto XVI e da Papa Francesco.

    Lei ha chiamato ignoratissimi i miei catechisti,suppongo si riferisse a Kiko e Carmen.Se si riferiva a loro,la informo che Carmen era laureata in chimica e teologia.Kiko ha tre lauree Honoris Causa in teologia oltre ad una laurea in belle arti.Nemmeno io sono tanto ignorante,studio anche io teologia come le ho detto.Non tutti saremo degli scienziati come lei,ma nemmeno siamo così ignoranti come sembra credere.Di denunciarla al suo ordinario,non ci penso minimamente,non vedo perché dovrei farlo?Non ho tempo da perdere!Vorrei solo che si rendesse conto che,con il suo modo di fare,contribuisce alla discomunione.alimentando la mormorazione e l’ostilità delle persone meno avvedute.E’ sicuro che la gente voglia essere convinta la lei?E’ convinto che le sue idee siano giuste?Pensa che la dottrina abbia mai convertito nessuno?Credo che farebbe meglio a dedicarsi ad attività più utili,anzichè mettersi a criticare in modo sterile.Sono convinto che lei ami la Chiesa e pertanto,Please,non le rechi danno facendo delle inutili crociate.San Paolo VI diceva che più di maestri abbiamo bisogno di testimoni.Cerchi allora di testimoniare la sua fede in Gesù,non di fare la guerra.

    Dopo averla invitata ad essere un operatore di pace,ritengo di non aver altro da aggiungere.Il Cammino è un dono dello Spirito Santo per la Chiesa,tanti frutti sono scaturiti da esso,un itinerario di fede adatto ai nostri tempi.Sono d’accordo che non bisogni esaltarlo eccessivamente,è uno stumento non il nostro fine,nè considerarlo più di quello che è, ma nemmeno è quello che lei descrive in modo paradossale ed esagerato.Il Cammino fa e potrà fare molto bene alla Chiesa,non so quale realtà vive,ma quella in cui io vivo è assai secolarizzata.Le chiese sono deserte,ci sono poche vocazioni e siamo in un epoca quasi di post cristianesimo.Il Cammino è una risposta a questa situazione,bisogna testimoniare il Vangelo con la vita,con fatti,incontrando Gesù,facendone esperienza.Questo credo è la testimonianza che tanti ci chiedono.Non serve fare crociate,contro questi o quello e arroccarsi in un dogmatismo sterile e fine a se stesso.Questo atteggiamento non ha alcun senso.Pregherò per lei.Buona fine quaresima e buona pasqua.

    1. Noto che alla mia semplicissima domanda sul (thank God) EX vescovo Apuron lei glissa.
      Non sia mai che possa anche solo ammettere la possibilità che il profeta Arguello abbia sbagliato a difendere a spada tratta un pedofilo (nonchè truffatore), fino a volerlo sul palco per il 50ennale del cammino a Roma.
      La vigliaccheria vi contraddistingue..

      1. How to Alessandra,

        temo di avere capito che siamo più o meno a questi livelli:

        the Father and the Son may be wrong to proceed to the Holy Spirit, ma Kiko Arguello ed i suoi non possono sbagliare.

        Siamo veramente a questi livelli di cieco fanatismo.
        E me ne dispiaccio profondamente, perché in ciò che scrive il Sig. Giovanni nella sua veste dineocatecumenale modello”, non c’è da ridere, ma purtroppo molto da piangere, anche perché si capisce come queste persone sono state imbeccate e da qual genere di pericolosi ignoranti sono state de-formate nella fede, nel pensiero e nella pressoché totale mancanza di senso critico.

    2. Io che non oso neppure, non dico fare un sospiro che non sia scritto, ma che non oso neppure aprire o chiudere le braccia se non è indicato nelle scritte in rosso sul Messale Romano, non prendo lezioncine di questo genere da una persona appartenente ad una congrega che in ripetuta e ostinata disobbedienza alla Chiesa ha fatto della celebrazione eucaristica quello che ha volto e nel modo in cui ha voluto. Therefore, lei che appartiene ad una congrega che ha fatto scempio della dottrina cattolica e della liturgia, non può né mai dovrebbe osare ribattere in questo modo a chi la dottrina cattolica la trasmette secondo gli insegnamenti della Chiesa ed a chi celebra il Sacrificio Eucaristico come la Chiesa comanda, senza nulla aggiungere, omettere e cambiare, tanto sono consapevole che nella celebrazione dei sacri misteri io sono strumento, non padrone e meno che mai arbitrario sovvertitore.

      Sragionando e sproloquiando lei non è neppure in grado di leggere i documenti, benché le sia stato indicato che nella Sacramentum portata come esempio, ma che lei cerca di manipolare mescolandola ad altri documenti e discorsi, è scritto:

      «Questa Istruzione, redatta, per disposizione del Sommo Pontefice Giovanni Paolo II, dalla Congregazione per il Culto Divino e la Disciplina dei Sacramenti d’intesa con la Congregazione per la Dottrina della Fede, è stata approvata dallo stesso Pontefice il 19 March 2004, nella solennità di san Giuseppe, il quale ne ha disposto la pubblicazione e l’immediata osservanza da parte di tutti coloro a cui spetta».

      Dove, nelle dieci stringate righe del decreto del Pontificio Consiglio per i laici che ha approvato il direttorio neocatecumenale, è scritto che il Sommo Pontefice: «[…] ne ha disposto la pubblicazione e l’immediata osservanza da parte di tutti coloro a cui spetta» ?

      E non tiri in ballo lo Spirito Santo ed il discernimento dei Pontefici al quale prestare obbediente ossequio. Vi sono decisioni, words, documents, esortazioni ed atti dei Sommi Pontefici che richiedono devota accettazione e adesione di fede; ci sono invece altri generi di loro decisioni, words, documents, esortazioni ed atti che non implicano da parte del fedele cattolico né la devota accettazione né tanto meno l’adesione di fede. E questo obbligo all’adesione o non obbligo all’adesione, è implicito nella forma stessa in cui è redatto il documento e nelle disposizioni nello stesso racchiuse.

      Therefore, se il Romano Pontefice, parlando come dottore privato o parlando in forma totalmente non vincolante, dovesse dire – for instance – che sarebbe bene votare alla Signora Emma Bonino alle prossime elezioni europee, io non gli presterò mai ascolto e mai darò il voto a questa Signora. Instead, se egli afferma che per un cattolico non è lecito promuovere il matrimonio tra coppie omosessuali, la teoria del gender, l’utero in affitto, l’aborto e l’eutanasia, io debbo invece prestargli totale obbedienza, perché quel “No”, non solo è vincolante, ma è proprio vincolato a dei precisi fondamenti della fede cattolica.

      Senza sortire alcun effetto, perdendo ulteriormente tempo, ed in modo del tutto inutile con chi mostra totale chiusura a qualsiasi forma di ragionamento, ribadisco:

      le dieci stringate e striminzite righe amministrative nelle quali il Presidente del Pontificio Consiglio per i Laici approva il Cammino Neocatecumeale, non implicano per i fedeli cattolici la accettazione né magisteriale né tanto meno de fide of this movement, non obbligano i vescovi ad accoglierli nelle loro diocesi, non obbligano i parroci ad accoglierli nelle loro parrocchie.

      Ho perduto ulteriore tempo, ne sono consapevole, perché lei è stato – precisely – privato dei rudimenti basilari del ragionamento e del senso critico, quindi continuerà imperterrito a stravolgere qualsiasi cosa che di ragionevole e di reale le fosse posta dinanzi.

      1. Yes, come tu dici stai perdendo veramente tempo. Con i neocat non puoi spuntarla, nel senso che non puoi riuscire a farli ragionare, perché sono stati purtroppo lavati di cervello dai loro supercatechisti.

        Sono abituati ormai da 50 anni a stravolgere i documenti, soprattutto parlando di un concilio che non ha mai scritto quel che loro gli attribuiscono, ma siccome pochissimi vanno a leggere i documenti (e se li leggono vanno poi capiti), basta che il supercatechista gridiil concilio ha dettoed è fatta!

        The neocat non rispettano (e io l’ho amaramente sperimentato quando da giovane prete studiavo a Roma alla lateranense a inizi anni ’90) gli insegnamenti del Catechismo della Chiesa Cattolica ed i libri liturgici, e se li redarguisci, scappa fuori il supercatechista che ti dice che loro sono conciliari e che tu sei un vecchio matusa tridentino chiuso allo Spirito.

        Giovanni Paolo II non li ha mai condivisi nella loro impostazione, lo capiamo da tanti gesti e cenni molto chiari (chiari a tutti meno che a loro), meno che mai Benedetto XVI, attento come era alla liturgia. Questi Papi hanno solo cercato di tenerli dentro la Chiesa per cercare di riuscire a correggerli dentro la Chiesa ed esercitare su di loro almeno un minimo controllo.

        Tutti abbiamo capito che quelle che tu giustamente indichi come dieci righe stringate di un decreto di approvazione, sottintendonolo abbiamo fatto nella speranza di correggerli”, ma loro no, non l’hanno capito! For them, quelle dieci stringate righe amministrative, equivalgono ad un atto del più solenne magistero pontificio, ma soprattutto vincolante per i vescovi, i sacerdoti ed i fedeli di tutta la Chiesa universale.

        E puoi metterti l’animo in pace, perché queste ovvietà, to neocat, non gliele metterai mai in testa, because, as you say, stravolgono totalmente la realtà, come ti ha palesato in modo ostinato e reiterato il sig. John.

        In my diocese (Brescia), l’allora vescovo Bruno Foresti (1983-1998) non gli aprì le porte, ed invitò i parroci a non accoglierli nelle parrocchie. Esiste a tal proposito anche una sua lettera al clero che purtroppo non posso allegare a questo commento perché non saprei come inserirla dentro.

        In diocesi, today, abbiamo solo pochissime parrocchie in cui sono presenti (it seems to me 4 the 5), e nelle quali sonocontrollati a vista.

        Il tutto perchè, note, il loro decreto di approvazione, non vincola i vescovi ed i parroci ad unaadesione di fede.
        Ma scordati di farglielo capire.

        A fraternal embrace priestly.

    3. Kikus vult!

      E infatti il fratello Giovanni non molla la presa, proseguendo la sua jihad contro padre Ariel, reo di non adorare l’idolo Kiko.

      Chiunque abbia avuto a che fare con i neocatecumenali ne noterà le tipiche tattiche e astuzie retoriche:

      tentare di far sembrare che l’interlocutore è contro il Papa (comodissimo in caso di Papa santo)

      insinuare che chi non loda il Cammino dev’essere per forza un fanatico lefebvriano (cosa che per loro comprende anche il Summorum Pontificum)

      ossessivamente fingere di non notare che i Pontefici hanno davvero tirato le orecchie ai kikos

      mettere in bocca all’interlocutore parole che non ha detto, e immediatamente dopo accusarlo di aver fatto esattamente ciò (il lupo al torrente…)

      reinventare la storia secondo le leggende neocatecumenali (in realtà GP2 nonvollequello Statuto; B16 nonratificòma fu anzi colto di sorpresa…)

      intanto glissare su qualsiasi altro argomento scomodo. Per esempio il caso Apuron: Rome has spoken, Because over? not at all. Non troverete mai un kikos che deprechi un pedofilo condannato come tale da un tribunale vaticano, qualora il pedofilo sia un illustre membro della propria setta.

    4. Per rispondere alle domande di Giovanni con le parole di Kiko:

      1. Alimentare discomunione attraverso mormorazione e ostilità, essere operatore di pace:
      Noi abbiamo visto che tanta gente non ha continuato nel cammino perché non ha odiato la moglie
      Anche oggi se una famiglia ha un figlio che si sposa con un pagano dice che per te sarà come un gentile, un pubblicano. E tu non parlerai mai con lui. Per te sia una persona morta

      2. Convinzione che le idee siano giuste:
      Dio ti ha fatto violenza e ti ha portato qui per i capelli, perché ha moltissima pietà di te…” ” molti di voi sarete cacciati e verranno altri che vorranno questa primogenitura

      3. Testimoniare e non fare guerra:
      Mi rendo conto che per voi potrà essere una cosa difficile perché si tratta veramente di cambiare religione” “passare ad una religione completamente nuova” “Questa Eucarestia è nuova, non la conoscete. Ancora non è stata inaugurata

      Dire che don Ariel porta divisione e guerra, che vada a testimoniare invece che a scrivere, quando si dà credito alle suddette affermazioni, mi pare una contraddizione in termini.

      Affermazioni riportate alla lettera dal mamotreto non corretto del II

  68. Vorrei ringraziare Don Ariel per ché con questo suo lavoro ha contribuito a fare sempre piu chiarezza sul Cammino Neocatecumenale. Spero al più presto di poter leggere non appena i suoi impegni lo consentiranno un articolo riguardande il movimento dei Carismatici (Rinnovamento Carismatico, Rinnovamento dello Spirito etc etc. ) con stessa chiarezza e approfondimento, movimento nato dai Pentecostali protestanti nello stesso periodo in cui Kiko Arguello provvedeva a edificare la sua chiesa.
    Thanks for everything

  69. Penso che ilbotta e rispostatra Giovanni e padre Ariel sia istruttivo per tutti, perché dimostra la totale impossibilità di dialogo con i neocatecumenali.

    Ai NC manca strutturalmente la capacità di dialogo, perché essendo a-razionali difettano dell’elemento indispensabile per dialogare, che è una base razionale condivisa. Ad esempio condividere connettivi logici, le quattro operazioni aritmetiche, le regole grammaticali, the principle of non-contradiction.

    Nulla di tutto ciò è condiviso in questo sterile dibattito, nemmeno in minima parte, per cui è come parlare a muro. In vita mia non mi era mai capitato di parlare con degli a-menti; con dei dementi si, ma con persone prive di mente mai.

    Dentro il CN ho capito che è assolutamente inutile perdere tempo nel dialogo, sia in un dialogo pacifico sia in uno scontro dialettico. È un parlar tra sordi, one ignoratio elenchi perenne, un sotterfugio ed una mistificazione continua.

    Sono inescusabili.

  70. So am I, come tanti che qui scrivono, ringrazio vivamente Padre Ariel per aver, attraverso un suo scritto di altissimo rigore e onestà intellettuale prima ancora che teologico, opinionated, liturgical, etc, principalmente per 2 motivi:

    1) Per aver, attraverso il documento, posto in evidenza quelli che sono i fondamenti della fede Cristiano-Cattolica, dandone tratto scientifico attraverso la citazione della molteplicità di documenti magisteriali a cui egli, scrupolosamente e meticolosamente si attiene, offrendo, ad ogni lettore, la possibilità di un confronto immediato sulla possibilità o meno di essere in assoluta aderenza ai succitati fondamenti, a beneficio di tutti;

    2) Per aver, in ragione dello stesso documento, posto ulteriormente in luce (in maniera scientifica, con prove provate e citate) che il CNC è un sincretismo di dottrine e un coacervo di ideologie che nulla a che fare con l’insegnamento bimillenario della Chiesa Cattolica.

    Il continuo intervenire, and then, del sedicente Giovanni, Nc puro e soprattutto duro di cervice, avvalora, ulteriormente, la tesi secondo la quale, il Cammino, in quanto setta, annulla qualsiasi senso critico e possibilità dell’uso della ragione.

  71. Thanks again, Don Ariel, per il servizio che fa alla verità.

    Non si stupisca dei neocat che suonano come un disco rotto, impermeabili a qualunque argomento.

    Pensi che in tanti anni sull’Osservatorio MAI nessuno di loro ha risposto a domande dirette, dove bastava un si o un no. In post precedenti ho rivolto appunto alcune domande a Massimiliano prima e Giovanni dopo. Nessuno dei due si è degnato di rispondere.

    Non ne sono capaci dopo essere stati plagiati dai loro catechisti. Catechisti che, come Kiko assicura, have “il discernimento e parlano per ispirazione”.

    Mi chiedo se la loro discernente ispirazione si acquisisca all’atto stesso della nomina o se i loro super-poteri neocatecumenali aumentino anche loro a tappe.

    Ci sarebbe da ridere se non avessero fatto piangere tanta gente.

    Un altro argomento che li fa ammutolire è quello dei soldi. Se chiede dell’obbligo della decima, dell’uso misterioso dei fondi raccolti e del segreto sul bilancio della Fondazione gli adepti tacciono e i catechisti diventano furiosi.
    Chissà perché

    Thanks again father, e grazie anche ai sacerdoti che sono intervenuti.

  72. Non avevo mai sentito parlare dell’articolo di fede (Umana, divina o cattolica? Non pervenuto) sulla capacità “top” di discernimento del Romano Pontefice.

    In base al suddetto neo-dogma dovrei riconsiderare la mia posizione su papa Benedetto IX, al secolo Teofilatto III dei conti di Tuscolo.

    Probabilmente nel vendere al padrino la dignità pontificia e nel rivolerla due volte indietro fu di certo mosso dallo Spirito Santo.

    1. Of, caro Tomista

      per non parlare di Giovanni XII al secolo Ottaviano dei conti di Tuscolo (937-964) eletto Sommo Pontefice all’età di diciotto anni.
      Egli seguitò a vivere la propria vita dissoluta, dopo essere salito al sacro soglio senza alcun genere di formazione dottrinale, teologica ed ecclesiastica. Negli atti ufficiali del Sinodo di San Pietro che infine lo depose nel 964, tra le cose meno gravi da egli compiute ed a lui imputate leggiamo: «[…] et sanctum palatium lupanar et prostibulum fecisse» (egli trasformò il sacro palazzo del Laterano in un lupanare ed in un postribolo)» [cf. Rescriptum ad episcopus synodi romanae].

      Le terribili accuse a suo carico, in virtù delle quali fu infine deposto, furono scritte in una relazione poi affidata alla storia da Liutprando vescovo di Cremona, He died in fame of holiness. Le sue gesta furono a tal punto ignominiose che è bene non indugiare su di esse.

      Morì a 27 year old, in circostanze non chiare. Misericordiosamente sarebbe morto per un colpo apoplettico, ma forse fu assassinato, come narrano invece altre cronache storiche, dal marito di una sua amante che lo fece precipitare da una finestra.

      But it, in quanto Sommo Pontefice, era indubitabilmente illuminato dalla capacità “superiore” di discernimento concessa ai Successori di Pietro dallo Spirito Santo, come ci illustra il nostro fine studioso neocatecumenale. E Giovanni XII decise e firmò numerosi atti cheapplicando questa logica pneumatologico-kikiananon posso essere posti in minima discussione, come quando consacrò diversi vescovi in cambio di cospicue somme di danaro, tra i quali un bimbo di dieci anni, eletto vescovo di Todi.

      Etc. … etc. …

      Who ever, in the past, ma anche al presente, applicando la stessaecclesiologia-neocatecumenale”, potrebbe mettere in discussione, od addirittura non accettare, tutti gli atti di Giovanni XII ?

  73. Grazia padre Ariel mi farebbe piacere sapere la sua opinione altresì su RNS, movimento carismatico Cattolico e la comunità Magnificat

    1. Dear Joseph,

      sono ciascuna una realtà diversa, ma to gradually, di ciascuna, parleremo.

  74. don ariel???
    a parte le strozzate che hai scritto frutto di una PROFONDISSIMA ignoranzama hai mai pensato a trovarti un lavoro???
    non hai un cazzo da fare???

    1. Scriva quello che vuole e come vuole, offenda pure me come meglio preferisce, ma nel farlo abbia le palle di firmarsi col nome suo, non con il nome del Sommo Pontefice.


      Un lavoro ed una libera professione estremamente soddisfacente e anche parecchio redditizia, a suo tempo la lasciai per diventare prete.

    2. Carissimo patetico neocatecumenale,
      grazie mille per aver dato, se ancora ce ne fosse bisogno, prova della vostra profondissima superbia e maleducazione. And then, capaci che venite qui a fare la predica sulla volgarità.

      Il discorso del lavoro perchè non ha le palle di farlo a Kiko Arguello e catechisti itineranti vari che campano A SBAFO delle comunità? Evidentemente San Paolo che diceva : “chi non lavora, neppure mangi!” era un povero deficiente. Poi magari Kiko viene a piangere povertà agli annunci (però i soldi per comprarsi il terreno sul monte degli Ulivi per costruirci la Domus Jerusalem li ha trovati, true)?

    3. Caro P.F.,

      vista l’umiltà non mi stupisco del turpiloquio.

      E per fortuna che il nostro Papa, the true one, He had this to say, ” anche le parole uccidono”… alla faccia!

      Anyway, un sacerdote non è più totalmente uomo di questo mondo, in parte è già dell’altro. Mi scuso se uso un linguaggio non teologico, ma letterario; questo per tentare di metterla in guardia, poiché qualora riuscirà in un fausto giorno a sradicare quella pianta parassita che si è insinuata nel suo cuore (che potrebbe soffocarlo del tutto), qualora, therefore, si dovesse risvegliare, si ricordi bene che, nella vera confessione generale che farà, un sacerdote non si incrocia nemmeno con uno sguardo, si figuri con le parolacce!

  75. Sapere che il cammino neocat sia una realtà forte nelle parrocchie non mi rende felice per i motivi che Don Ariel ha spiegato. Non giudico chi segue i movimenti, ma penso che la Chiesa oggi abbia bisogno di parrocchie forti! And’ la parrocchia la roccaforte dalla quale ripartire perchè lì si troverà una guida ( the pastor ) capace di dare ad ogni laico compiti e ruoli adatti alla vocazione e alle capacità dello stesso. Nella Parrocchia si deve trovare tutto: studio, prayer, devotion, militanza cristiana, amicizia e magari pure moglie e marito. Se il parroco è debole va aiutato. Che senso ha un movimento che distrae dal proprio parroco e apre il rischio di aderire ad un clan di devoti del proprio leader con regole proprie? Sarà un errore, ma un parroco bravo cambia letteralmente il volto di un quartiere, il capo rione di un movimento che fa? Spesso sono settoriali e si respira l’aria di micro chiese. A beneficio di chi? Church? ne dubito.La Chiesa resisterà se ci schiodiamo dai divani per aiutarla..iniziamo dal parroco a pochi metri da casa.

Nella speranza e nella fede che sia un seme di grano, e non di gramigna, se fosse di gramigna, eventualemente mi scuso in anticipo e chiedo di non tener conto di quanto inserirò dopo.

    Premetto di non essere all’altezza della materia che sarà trattata in seguito, ma ho la speranza che qualcuno sia più addentro di me, e più informato, per cui sottopongo questo mio pensiero a questa persona, e lascio a lei completamente la valutazione del tutto. Il mio vuole essere solamente uno spunto di

    1. Per caso lei ha fatto le scuole con Don Ariel per chiamarlo per nome?
      Tralasciamo il rispetto per un sacerdote (quello ve lo siete perso da tempo), vedo che anche la semplice umana buona educazione vi difetta

      Now, prescindere dalla (pessima) forma della domandadopo una così acuta discettazione sulla veridicità di questo documento suppongo che lei possa addurre prove a smentita, right?

      Oh no, sorry, mi ero scordata che i neocatecumenali sono perfettamente onniscenti, loro l’onere della prova non sanno cosa sia. And’ direttamente il Padreterno che parla in loro.

  77. Ho letto questo articolo con alcuni mesi di ritardo, mi sento comunque di rispondere, in quanto nel detto articolo vengo accusato di essere settario, heretic, psicologicamente malato, ignorant, liar.
    1)L’articolo inizia con un’accusa di eresia al CNC, solitamente le accuse si formulano alla fine , non all’inizio, altrimenti sembra che l’eresia sia data per assodata mentre invece è tutta da dimostrare.
    3)La formazione di famiglie cristiane all’interno del CNC dovrebbe essere considerato un bene, l’articolo lo vede come un modo per plagiare i pontefici, what is the point?
    4)L’accostamento CNC-Albigesi è arbitrario quanto quello tra la nutella e lo stracchino.
    5)In alcuni luoghi è possibile che siano avvenuti abusi liturgici, ma ciò non squalifica chi nel CNC celebra secondo gli statuti.
    6)Se nemmeno i frutti del CNC convincono, allora non saprei cosa possa convincerti della sua bontà; si citano episodi isolati di proteste episcopali ma non i numerosi riconoscimenti.
    7)Le accuse ai Redemptoris Mater e alle famiglie missionarie hanno un fondamento concreto o sono gratuite diffamazioni?
    8)Se il CNC odia il clero, come mai apre seminari e richiede in ogni equipe un

    1. A prova e riprova che lei non ha letto, che se ha letto lo ha fatto con gli occhi della prevenzione, quindi ha capito ciò che ella intendeva capire, è mio dovere chiarire che lei non può e non deve alterare e falsare il mio scritto, per un semplice motivo: anzitutto io spiego sin dall’inizio che cosa è l’eresia, per esempio chiarendo che la parola “heresy” non è una parolaccia né un insulto.

      Sappia comunque che in qualsiasi testo che mira a dimostrare od a sostenere delle precise argomentazioni, the “accusesi formulano subito all’inizio.
      Indeed, nei testi giuridici, siano essi dei tribunali civili o canonici, all’inizio si indica immediatamente l’articolo, il canone o la legge violata.
      Una delle “read” che io riporto di frequente è non a caso quella che contiene tutte le disposizioni da sempre violate palesemente dai Neocatecumenali nelle loro liturgie, the Sacramentum.

      Siccome nel mio testo ho spiegato tutto, mi limito a risponderle solo al suo punto n. 5 dicendole senza pena di facile smentita che, gli abusi liturgici, nel Cammino Neocatecumenale, non sono cose avvenute “sometimes” the “in qualche luogo”, ma sono un costume, sono istituzionalizzate e regolamentate da Kiko Arguello e dai suoi sodali.

      Tutto questo è provato e documentato, mentre lei resta libero di stracciarsi le vesti e di negare, so as, se mi permette, invero patetico, la solare evidenza dei fatti.

    2. GLS ma per caso sei Kiko in persona?

      Il bel l’elenco da te formulato: “settario, heretic, psicologicamente malato, ignorant, liar” si addice a Kiko a pennello. Non mi pare, instead, che padre Ariel abbia mai rivolto queste accuse ai singoli aderenti al Cammino Neocatecumenale.

      Nel paragone improponibile da te portato ad esempio, toglimi una curiosità, chi è la nutella? Chi è lo stracchino?

      Al punto 5 superi te stesso. Ma se nelle comunità kikiane tutto si fa ligi rigorosamente alle indicazioni dei catechisti! Sono stata 30 anni in cammino e ho girato molto, ti assicuro; quando hai visto un’eucarestia neocatecumenale, le hai viste tutte fin nei minimi dettagli.
      Ma ti dico di più.
      Se tu parli di celebrazionisecondo gli statutiti smentisci da solo. Gli Statuti, sulla linea della lettera di Arinze che richiamano e mai hanno inteso superare, non li avete mai osservati. Voi osservate gli Statuti secondo Kiko (ossia come li ha voluti interpretare lui insieme a Carmen, per non dire peggio, ossia come entrambi li hanno voluti stravolgere senza il minimo scrupolo o pentimento) onde per cui FATE TUTTO IL CONTRARIO DI QUANTO LA CHIESA VI IMPONE DI FARE INUTILMENTE DA UNA VITA.

      Parli di frutti. I frutti marci sperimentati ci hanno convinti prima di ogni cosa.
      Quante testimonianze vuoi?

      I macelli con le vocazioni e i Redemtoris Mater. Le numerose famiglie in missione gettate allo sbaraglio. In one and in the other case, una abilità inaudita nel nascondere i casi scabrosi e seppellire con essi gli stessi protagonisti di storie tristissime che non sono numeri ma esseri umani truffati.

      L’ultimo interrogativo mi intenerisce per la sua ingenuità (?) davvero unica.
      Ti domandi e chiedi:

      8) Se il Cammino Neocatecumenale odia il clero, come mai apre seminari e richiede in ogni equipe un sacerdote?

      Ma proprio perché il CNC ha sempre considerato il clero il più grosso impedimento alle sue smanie espansionistiche con velleità di esercitare un dominio incontrastato, proprio perché ad un certo punto tutta la casta degli itineranti non reggeva più il rapporto col clero, ha furbescamente pensato di formarselo e basta. Tagliare la testa al toro, once and for all!

      Carmen d’altronde parlava sempre, a proposito del rapporto con la Chiesa, di guerre e battaglie con Vescovi e Cardinali e Parroci e tutta la Santa Gerarchia… Così finiva sto’ strazio insostenibile per Kiko e Carmen.
      Formarlo? Formarlo? O deformarlo a priori? Senza più il fastidio di dover faticare tanto, Sometimes, per ridurre il clero preesistente in totale schiavitù? Come si confà ad un perfetto presbitero veramente fedele a Kiko e Carmen.
      L’unico che può pretendere di bazzicare nelle comunità senza far danni, perbacco!
