It would be so easy to silence us. Provide the documents which permit you to worship differently. Provide the "catechism" (Kiko's) which you say we get wrong. Well then, prove us wrong! Prove this writer wrong:

Until you do, we must assume you are gnostics. Oh, you point to the bishops who support you and sing your praises? Be reminded that the majority of the church's bishops at one time also supported Arius.

  1. Card. Burke: «even after the admonition, [Kiko’s Mass] doesn’t seem to be coherent with the liturgical magisterium of the Pope»

    fractio panis made also by the laymen (!)

    Here we present some recent articles about the case of the “crows in the Vatican” published by the Italian newspaper Repubblica: the only reason why we want to cite them is the fact that they point out another detail about the anomalous “approval” of the NCW.

    In a letter, addressed to Cardinal Bertone at the Secretariat of State, signed by Cardinal Leo Raymond Burke, the chief of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura writes that he found on his desktop an invitation to participate to a celebration that would have been held by the Pope six days later, ‘in the occasion of the approval of the NCW’s liturgy.’ The letter is dated January 14th, 2012 and the postmark shows that it has been received on January 16th.

    The high priest appears to be very upset by the fact, even angry. ‘As a Cardinal and as a member of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments—we read—cannot avoid expressing he surprise this invitation caused me. I do not recall having heard about a consultation regarding a particular liturgy for this ecclesial movement. In recent days, many people—even a highly esteemed American Bishop—sent me expressions of concern regarding the possibility that the Pope may give such approval, which they already knew about. I regarded them as rumor or speculation. Now I’ve discovered that they were right.’

    That’s how Cardinal Burke ends his letter to Bertone: ‘As a faithful student of the teaching of the Holy Father with regard to liturgical reform, which is fundamental for the New Evangelization, I believe the approval of such liturgical innovations, even after the corrections on the part of the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, does not seem coherent with the liturgical magisterium of the Pope.’

    Please read again with care his words: Cardinal Burke states: ‘even after the corrections’ to the ‘liturgical innovations’ of the NCW, Neocatechumenal liturgy ‘does not seem coherent with the liturgical magisterium of the Pope.’

    It’s a very soft way to say that the Neocatechumenals go against the Pope. It’s something that arises ‘concerns’ among Bishops. Also, these are maneuvers carried out—as everybody knows— ‘without the Pope’s knowledge.’

    Another article reports Pope Benedict XVI’s reply, two lines in his own writing (note well the date: January 20th, the very same day of the Neocatechumenal auto-celebration before the Pope):

    ‘I send [Burke’s letter] back to Cardinal Bertone, inviting Cardinal Burke to report maybe also this extremely just observations in the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.’ B XVI 20. I.12
