We were forewarned that the NeoCatechumenal Way would be approved, in spite of the fact that “The Neocatechumenals typically celebrate their Masses not on Sunday, but on Saturday evening, in small groups, separated from the rest of the parish community. And because each Neocatechumenal group corresponds to a particular stage of the Way, each group has its own Mass, in different places. “ , etc. etc.


Read about it in the most recent post at Rorate.

(edited) There was a most apropos comment made at CatholicCulture.org regarding the approbation given by Rome. It reads:  “This pronouncement neatly avoids the issue of how the Neo Cats celebrate Holy Mass — which IS a liturgical celebration. They have their own little specialities, which are not addressed. Also, if they are to follow the local bishops, what of Japan, where the bishops voted to suspend the Neo Cat activities for 5 years? The Holy See overruled the bishops of Japan on this a year ago. Kiko won a battle in Rome, but he caused the Japanese bishops to “lose face” in public –tragedy for the Church.”

    Excuse me…but wha…what is this picture? Is that dude in the get up a Catholic priest? Is that a “Mass” going on there?

      Hi, there!

      What you see is supposed to be a “Mass”, the Kiko way. Did you notice the gal at the very left with the boots on? And the priest with a shawl covering his head?

      There is something very, very wrong in the Church when liturgies like that are not just tolerated, but given a warm welcome in parishes. Ask for a TLM though, and boy, those in authority who should be of assistance, drag their feet, obstruct, hinder, and give you the run-around.

      But, we trudge on.

      God bless!

      Carol, your comment triggered an idea for a new category for this blog: “How bad is it?” I’ll have to think about it.
