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.”
