We have to assume that the gems we continue to get from Zoltan are precisely what is taught in the Neocatechumenal Way. No one has stepped forward on this blog to discredit anything he has said. And obviously he has not been reined in by any Catechist. In fact, by the looks of it, he is encouraged to sally forth on this blog in the name of the Neocatechumenal Way. So we will let him speak:
Tim, I would not ignore criticism of cultural nature. You act like someone viewing himself in the helmet of the Inquisition. The people on tiny island has no real knowledge of the history of Catholic Inquisition, this shameful and murderous past of the Church that is better forgotten than reenacted. They don't know the pain and suffering that was inflicted on the faithful by self-appointed thugs in reverend, who took on the helmet of Inquisition against them, tortured and burned them alive. Are you proud of this past?
Ah, you see dear people of Guam? You see what they are taught in the Neocatechumenal Way: our island is "tiny", we are stupid, we have no real knowledge of anything outside our tiny little make believe church on Guam. And any criticism of the NCW is tantamount to re-enacting the Inquisition. Referencing the Inquisition, by the way, is a typical anti-Catholic ploy. You appear to know little to nothing of the Inquisition. Someday I'll enlighten you. However, your referencing it is expected since Kiko teaches that the Church apostatized after Constantine and is only now being restored by him.
So it would be better if you do not try to implant the same self-appointed thug mentality here among unsuspecting people. Please acknowledge that the time of Inquisition, persecution and free murder by church capos is irrevocably over. You see, you raise a fringe Catholic group here, who think it is normal to spy on their Catholic sisters and brothers and accuse them with all different kinds of heresies with no reason. This is alien from this culture that has mutual respect and acceptance as its foundation. This is also alien from the Spirit of love who has a real presence in the communities of the Church.
Ah, you see you poor "unsuspecting people". The great White Zoltan is here to save you from the evil Church which burned people alive before the time of Kiko. And as for spying, ummm, there was no need. The Archbishop publicly told us all that the NCW would do what it wants and to hell with Rome. No need to spy. Oh, and you see, of course it is I who am raising a "fringe Catholic group" as if this all didn't exist long before me. And remember folks, this man is a professor at UOG. God help your children. He teaches math, but usually math requires some skill in logic. Obviously its missing.
If you have proof that the Catholic Magisterium rejected the Neocatechumenal Way, then please produce the document. Very simple. What holds you back. If you are unable to produce the document, then please do not act as a self-appointment inquisitor. Is this too much to ask for?
Hard not to laugh. Okay, there. I laughed...and then sighed, sighed because people who think like this are what the Archbishop is encouraging or at least providing a home for at our expense. But to the answer. Zoltan, the document is the Statute of the Neocatechumenal Way. In so far as your communities and practices conform to that Statute, they are legitimate. In so far as they do not conform, the are illegitimate.
So, here we go again. The manner in which the NCW distributes communion is not permitted in the Statute and is in fact forbidden in footnote 49. You know this. And your answer is "so what?" But we'll deal with that in our next installment of "MORE FUN WITH ZOLTAN." Thanks for keeping it interesting.
