Was going to take a little break for Easter, but just came home from Easter Vigil and saw this comment which deserves a response.

  1. The Dungbat continues to blog deceptive messages on its interpretation on the Popes call for unity.

    Dear Anonymous at 3:56 am,

    I can only speak about the NCW on Guam as I walk in the community here. From what I see, there are a few brothers in the Way who are arrogant and feel they are better than others, but these brothers so not represent the entire NCW. We are all human and can make mistakes. However, some of these brothers have come to realize that they were wrong.

    As for unity, we are in unity, the Pope calls us into unity. We are called to be in unity with the Bishops and Pope. And we will strive for that. Do you see us opposing the Archbishop??? Of course not. What You want is for the NCW to oppose Archbishop Apuron. Is that correct?
The reference is to the pope's recent lecturing of the Neocatechumenal Way in which the dominant message was unity. And it is not for naught that the pope hammered on this. We'll take a deeper look at the lecture another time (I call it a lecture on purpose). 

And now to the Dungbat's point.

For those who don't know, The Dungbat is the affectionate name for The Diana, a group of people who speak for Pius the Samnut and are too fearful of the truth to let their identities be known.

My answer to the above was left as this comment:

It is the archbishop who is not in unity. He publicly rejected the authority of the pope and not only has never recanted nor apologized, not only did he try to get me and others to lie for him to cover it up, he continues to reject that authority by persisting in performing the ncw's illicit communion rite.

Of course we are not called to be in union with a bishop who demonstrably lies and steals from us, nor should we be in union with a bishop who himself publicly rejects the magisterial teaching authority of the Church. 

The Church throughout history has had its share of such scoundrels and each time it was ultimately the laity who stood up against these impostors and rid their Church of them. And we shall do the same with this one.

While I would like to delve into a rant at this point - since the despicable deeds just mentioned are only a fraction of what this man has perpetrated on this Church and some of its most vulnerable members - in the spirit of Easter I want to address a more tame point.


For years we have been spit upon by the Dungbat and its cadre of Kiko's whenever we mention their illicit communion rite. Their common refrain is "well, write Rome," or "Rome hasn't stopped us," or "the Pope knows and he hasn't said anything, " etc. 

My answer is EXACTLY. 

Those of us who actually know something about our Church know enough to know that when the Church does not say something then what has come before is to remain. The Church doesn't go around policing  liturgies. It provides the liturgical books and unless it manifestly approves a particular departure, the Church expects us to be mature enough to know that we are not to make stuff up and wait for Her to spank our hands.

Archbishop Socrates Villegas, THE HEAD of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, made this point when he recently addressed the illicit practice of standing after the consecration until the AMEN:

March 22, 2016, 11:11a.m. - THE HEAD of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has announced that kneeling during the most important part of Holy Mass would be returned, as is practiced in the rest of the Universal Church.
In a pastoral letter dated March 19, Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas, the CBCP president, said the practice of standing during the Memorial Acclamation, in which the faithful affirm Christ’s death, resurrection and future return, was a mere liturgical adaptation that did not have Vatican approval.
“We must abandon the practice of standing after the consecration until the Amen as we do not have the authority to make such an adaptation nor do we have the authority to implement it,” Villegas said in his pastoral letter. 
As a result, the faithful must kneel “after the Sanctus (Holy, Holy, Holy Lord …) until the end of the Eucharistic prayer” or the “Great Amen.”
The decision was made by the CBCP Permanent Council, based on the Philippine Edition of the Vatican-approved Roman Missal of 2011. The issue was raised during the 112th CBCP Plenary Assembly in Cebu last January, when the country hosted the International Eucharistic Congress.
In 1990, the “Guidelines for the Eucharist” allowed the faithful not to kneel during the Memorial Acclamation. This was also included in the Philippine Adaptations to the General Instructions of the Roman Missal 2002 proposed during the 86th CBCP Plenary Assembly. Liturgists wanted the faithful to stand during the Memorial Acclamation and kneel after the Agnus Dei or Lamb of God.
Villegas said no “recognition” or formal reply was granted by Rome as regards the two proposed guidelines. According to canon lawyers, no answer or silence from Rome means that the recognition has not been given, he said.
The prelate pointed out that kneeling is an important part of Christian culture. “We cannot abandon or set aside the culture of kneeling in favor of the culture that says as free men we must face God on our feet. Bending the knee before the tabernacle in genuflection, kneeling down at the celebration of the Eucharist, kneeling down to adore the exposed Blessed Sacrament—these are little but sublime acts of adoration that we must preserve and protect.

Now, let me draw your attention to the second to the last paragraph:

Villegas said no “recognition” or formal reply was granted by Rome as regards the two proposed guidelines. According to canon lawyers, no answer or silence from Rome means that the recognition has not been given, he said.

This is the answer to the Dungbat and the Kiko's: 


But beyond this, there is the issue that the Kiko's continue to demonstrate that they are NOT part of our Church, for not only do they illicitly stand from the Consecration to the Amen, they STAND even during the consecration as per Archbishop Apuron's instruction and permission to do so:

Thus, anyone who desires to be in UNITY with the Holy Catholic Church MUST REJECT the example of Archbishop Apuron who continues to violate our Church's Sacred Liturgy and continues to perform an illicit rite according to the "liturgical books" of Kiko Arugello. 

Archbishop Apuron is NOT our bishop so long as he continues to violate what our Holy Catholic Church requires. He and his neo-cult must be rejected

Of course there is a reason they do not kneel. They do not kneel because they do not adore. And they do not adore because they do not believe that this is Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity.
