Dear Anonymous at 8:38pm,
Dont be a coward, next time sign your name to your accusation. I probably know you because you obviously know that my automatic "signature" for my gmail account ends with the popular quote from Saint Pio, "PRAY, HOPE AND DONT WORRY".
Sorry to burst your bubble but the comment above is not from me.
While I have your attention let me speak directly to you and let you know how I feel about fake people like you.
You think that you....wait I really hate to call you it but since its a regular thing in here......you think you non-neos are the only ones getting nasty looks? No, I began getting it, the first day word went around that I was in a community.
You think you are the only one being shunned. No, I get shunned enough. Things and responsibilities in the church that i used to enjoy doing, I no longer get invitations to do this.
Are you the only one feeling out of place or put in awkward moments when someone asks you, what community are you from? No, the first thing that ever got me bothered was a priest who asked me, "Oh your in the Neo? I dont see a difference." what the heck did he mean by that?
Are you the only one being told that the Neo is THE WAY? No, as responsible of the community down here, I over heard a conversation between a lady and a member of my community, she went on saying, "Oh nevermind you only need the green catechism book I got it, its from Father Mike". I have so much respect for Father Mike, despite my differences in the past, but why is it so important to be from Father Mike.
The NCW is not forced on anyone down here. I attended a catechism on my free will.I agreed to continue walking on my own will.
I would like to meet with you(Annonymous 8:38pm). I would like to meet with you so that I could apologize to you for anything that I have done to cause you to go ahead and back stab me like this.
My closest friends, maybe even you, know that I have never not answered a question posed to me about the NCW. I have shared my honest opinion and personal experiences with each and everyone of you. This is why this hurts so much for me, for you to greet me with a sarcastic "Hello Mr. A.T." ........just fake....fake....fake......
You are probably a parishioner of San Dimas, dont worry, I have a recording of ministers and CCD Teachers and the coordinator, talking gossip of the NCW in the Church in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. You will never find the community wasting time on talk about the parishioners.
God Bless You! but please dont forget to send me an email if you forgot, it is email@example.com, or come to my house, since you know me that well. We can talk more about this.
DEAR TIM: I am not a coward and I do not appreciate the Anonymous Commenter at 8:38pm. For what it is worth, please post my comment. You can have all the fun you want with it.
While I think that your reply is a sad commentary on the divisive legacy of one Anthony S. Apuron, I am delighted to finally find ONE member of the Neocatechumenal Way who will actually use a real name and is agreeable to answering questions:
"know that I have never not answered a question posed to me about the NCW."
Thus, I look forward to your reply to the following.
In the celebration of the Eucharist in the neocatechumenal communities:
- Does the celebrant delay his own communion until after he has distributed the sacred species to all the communicants?
- Do the communicants delay consumption of the sacred host until the sacred host has been distributed to all the communicants?
- Do the communicants after standing to receive the sacred host then sit to consume?
If the answer is "yes" to any or all of these, would you kindly provide the source of your permission to do so. These practices vary from the communion rite as prescribed in the liturgical books to which, - other than remaining in your place and barring any other indult - the Statute of the Neocatechumenal Way (Art. 13, §3) requires compliance.
We know that a special permission or indult apart from the Statute must be granted in order for you to distribute and receive communion in this manner because of what Archbishop Apuron told the parishioners from Yona during his pastoral visit there on December 17, 2014. When asked where was the permission to distribute and receive communion in this manner, the Archbishop did not say it was permitted in the Statute (because it isn't). He said:
"Rome has given permission for that. And it’s somewhere I need to find out where exactly, but they told us that permission is given."
Antoine, as you can see from the counter in the right sidebar, as of today, it has been 63 days since Archbishop Apuron told the Yona parishioners that he would "find out where exactly". Since the Archbishop is too busy to answer the Yona parishioners, perhaps because you are a "responsible" for your community, he will answer you more readily.
I really don't want to have to put up another counter for the number of days since I have made this request directly to you, so I hope to hear from you soon. We know the document exists because the the Archbishop himself said that "it's somewhere". I do hope you can help him find it.
P.S. As you may or may not know, because the celebration of the Eucharist is both the "sacrament of unity" and "source and summit of our faith", indults or permits to vary from the prescriptions of the liturgical books is serious business and are always codified via an authoritative document from the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments (CDW) if not the pope himself. In other words Archbishop Apuron's "they told us" will not suffice.
Thank you again for your willingness to answer questions. You are a rare one indeed.
