Seriously "Diana", did you check with your catechist before you posted this? I guess now we know that you really are just an ordinary "walker". Archbishop, do you actually allow this????

Interesting comment by Diana.. Please note last paragraph...WE ARE TOLD.....
In the Neocatechumenal Way, the members receive the Body of Christ by hand standing up. After receiving the Body of Christ by hand standing up, we sit down still holding the Body of Christ. We do not consume the Body of Christ because the priest did not receive Holy Communion yet.
For those who do not believe what I just stated above or do not find my statement above credible, you are always welcome to go to the Eucharist of the Way this Saturday and see for yourself.
At any rate, we do not consume the Body of Christ immediately because the priest did not receive Holy Communion yet. Before consuming the Body of Christ, the priest proceeds to say "Behold the Body of Christ........" Then the members say, "Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof....." Then, we consume the Body of Christ together after the priest receives Holy Communion. And we consume the Body of Christ, sitting down.
If your next question is 'why we consume the Body of Christ sitting down, ' the answer is because we are told to do so by the Team Catechists. The members are obedient to the Team Catechists who is in communion with Kiko Arguello who is in communion with the Pope. According to the Team Catechists, these instructions came from Kiko who in turn received the same instructions from the Pope.
