As you have seen, I have pretty much just reposted Bert & Ernie's, er I mean, Diana & Ernie's drivel about Kiko the Prophet without comment since, for intelligent people, none was needed. 

No half way thinking person could confuse the baptismal call to prophesy with actually assuming the title of Prophet and elevating oneself to the level of a Moses or Ezekiel. 

Diana's* idiocy that in speaking of the baptismal call to prophesy without assuming the actual title of "Prophet" is somehow a descent into symbolism, is, well, just idiocy...which is why I simply reposted "her" comment without even so much as an LOL or an SMH. 

In other words, I assume the intelligence of this readership. 

However, when we get over the LOL's and SMH's, what "Diana" usually gives us is a catechetical moment: an opportunity to contrast the sanity of authentic Catholic teaching with the screwy exegesis and catechetical contortions of the heavily medicated "Diana's" and "Ernie's". 

I was hoping to get to the "sanity of authentic Catholic teaching" today in a more complete way than the few comments I've been able to insert into the slimy mess that passes for Kiko's theology a la "Diana & Ernie", when I received a comment where someone did it for me. So here it is. And thanks Rol M.

* For those who are new to the blog, "Diana" is the anonymous default neocatechumenal spokesperson for the neocatechumenal Archbishop Apuron (since he won't speak for himself). 

  1. We recognize our father in Faith Abraham, and all the prophets that God has sent throughout time, along with the different covenants that God has established with his people, however these prophets and covenants are a only a typology or foreshadow of something greater to come in the NT. We surely do not believe that the shadow is ever greater than the fulfillment.

    The coming of Christ in essence superseded all the types of sacrifices mandated in the OT and established a greater universal covenant with man in Christ’s Paschal Mystery.(Mat 26:28 & CCC1322-1421)                                                                                                                                      
    Circumcision for example has been superceded by the Sacrament of Baptism, the sacrifice of animals by that of Christ Himself, the old priesthood, by that of Christ, and his sacrament of Holy Orders that he established at the Last Supper.

    Divine revelation found in Sacred Scripture and Tradition has revealed to us what God has laid out as the plan of Salvation, namely, He established a “Church” and entrusted to her all the means of supernatural grace through the Sacraments. The Church in her Magisterial, Sacramental and Pastoral offices (CCC 888-892) is responsible for teaching all that Christ taught, Administer the Sacraments and guard the deposits of truth until he comes again.(Mat 28: 19,20) This Church, the body of Christ is the fullness of one who fills all things in every way (Eph1:22,23) The Bride of Christ according to Scripture is built upon the foundations of the apostles and prophets with Christ as its head. (Eph 2:19-22), It has the characteristic of being the “Pillar and Foundation of Truth” (1Tim 3:15) and by these attributes possesses the responsibility for the care of souls (Mat 18: 15-18).        
    The power to forgive sins (Jn 20:23), and the power to speak with Christ’s voice (Lk 10:16).

    I do not believe that God has changed this plan and entrusted our salvation to one sole prophet. No one person, Bishop, Priest, Deacon by himself is the Church.

    I believe the question we should be asking is, Is Kiko’s teaching in line with what the Church is teaching? Is he obedient to the Church in the administration of the sacraments?                                
    After all, the Church is mandated to protect the sacredness of the sacraments entrusted to her by instituting certain rituals and practices relevant to the ministers, form, matter and recipients of God’s precious gifts. I do not believe that any one person, priest, bishop has that capacity to deviate from the Church’s mandate.

    Brothers & Sisters In closing, our Lord tells us in scripture to test all spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world (1:Jn 4:1), or another passage to test everything that is said, and to hold on to what is good. (1 Thes 5:21).

    The issues with our faith we have on hand are not just mundane issues to think about and
    debate for the sake of winning. It is a matter of finding out what is the truth, our eternal salvation hinges on knowing what this truth is.

    God Bless,
    Rol M.
