There is no denying the tumult which eventually follows in the wake of the introduction of the Neocatechumenal Way into a region. What is happening on Guam is just another chapter, and a short one at that, compared to the long string of clashes that have plagued dioceses and parishes around the world.
Neocatechumenals will always point to their fruits to validate their Way. But they are the same fruits that almost any other religion will claim. In fact, Guam's non-Catholic churches are filled with former Catholics who will speak of having found God, how they came to know the word of God for the first time, how their marriages were saved, how their families were bettered, how they were able to overcome addictions, how they would be dead now if not for their new faith, etc.
So if the NCW is producing all this good, then why the long and growing tumult, the never ending clashes with authority, the social implosion, and eventually the threats which you have seen on this blog. The host of an Italian blog which has also chosen to challenge the NCW wrote to me not long ago expressing amazement that I would identify myself in this debate. She explained that in Italy they literally fear for their lives, and that there have been physical altercations, which is something I am now beginning to understand.
