"I am not violating any liturgical principles because the way the Neocatechumenal Way celebrates the liturgy has been approved by the popes from Paul VI all the way down to the present pope..."
- Archbishop Apuron to members of the clergy, Monday, July 14, 2014
"The Decree approving the celebrations listed in the 'Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way' has just been read. They are not strictly speaking liturgical but are part of the itinerary of growth in faith...It is the task of the celebration in the small communities — regulated by the liturgical books that must be faithfully followed, with the details approved in the Statue of the Way..."
- ADDRESS OF HIS HOLINESS BENEDICT XVI TO THE COMMUNITY OF THE NEOCATECHUMENAL WAY, Paul VI Hall, Friday, 20 January 2012
Archbishop. PLEASE stop obeying and parroting your Neocatechumenal masters. The way YOU celebrate the Neocatechumenal liturgy IS NOT APPROVED. What is approved are the liturgical variants contained within your CHARTER, as Pope Francis recently put it. Your charter, the Statute of the Neocatechumenal Way, DOES NOT ALLOW YOU to distribute the consecrated bread BEFORE you yourself receive. Nor does it allow the communicants to continue holding the consecrated bread until all have received, sit, and then consume. What is it that you don't understand about:
"It is the task of the celebration in the small communities — regulated by the liturgical books that must be faithfully followed..."
- Love, THE POPE
The Popes DO NOT APPROVE of your celebration other than what is permitted in your Statute. As we can clearly see, as recently as 20 January 2012, Pope Benedict, in front of the whole world, approved ONLY those "celebrations listed in the Catechetical Directory of the Neocatechumenal Way...that are NOT LITURGICAL.
SERIOUSLY. WHY MUST WE PUT UP WITH THESE LIES, LIES, LIES! Unless you don't even know you are lying anymore.
