He is able to give instructions from how to cook the eucharisty's azim bread until which prayer you have to recite during the process, from how the tunic for Elected might be (couture dressmaker) to how the responsible has to bless sons and daughters of his community during Laudes prayer.
One of his least commented talents is his work as a teacher during time of his youth: "I bless the Lord I have been for ten years a teacher in a school and I have had much contact with kids" (Kiko, Mamotrete for Didascalons of Neocatechumenal Way, Madrid, 1985, original in Spanish here).
If you read the said mamotreto for Didascalons, you will find a lot of his pearls which supposedly Holy See and competent n-Dicasteries had approved. For example, that one when Kiko says, without any embarrasment, that a Sunday mass for neocatechumenal children means 20 in front of 100 of their neo-eucharisty.
"(...) Neocatechumenal children who are preparating for First Communion with the parish (we do not make a separated preparation), the parish has a Mass for the children of the First Communion and they want our children at that Mass, which we disagre. Because our children do not live the situation of other children who go to those catechesis, absolutely, it is completely different. It would make them pass from one thing worth one hundred to one thing worth twenty" (ibid.)
Original in Spanish:
" (...) los niños del Camino Neocatecumenal que se preparan a la Primera Comunión con la parroquia (nosotros no hacemos una preparación aparte) ésta tiene una misa para los niños de la Primera Comunión y quisiera que fueran los nuestros a esa misa, con lo cual nosotros no estamos de acuerdo. Porque nuestros niños no viven la situación de los otros niños que vienen a las catequesis, absolutamente, es completamente distinto. Sería pasarles de una cosa que vale cien a una cosa que vale como veinte".
Kiko always knows better. Kiko is such a new Leonardo DaVinci but in pure christian. If you doubt it, you must listen how he brings authority over Didascalons as ancient kings appointed knights. If you have a charism, then everybody should respect you! If somebody doesn't, then must go to your catechists for a clarification.
Kiko is not a father in a literal way, although he has got a million and a half of spiritual sons and daughters. That is why he also knows better how parents are in their deepest: they always worship their children. They always use to put them before community celebrations and holy neo-works. They are such hysterical...(Hummm, Kiko, "hysterical" is not a conception of Psychoanalysis?)
"Let's start talking about the Eucharist of children who have made their first communion. In this regard we have to have very clear ideas because you, as Didascalon, sometimes you have to fight with certain sentimental attitudes of parents; in this regard you must have authority. You are a Didascalon, a child's teacher, and it is assumed that if the community, the Lord has given you a mission, you have a charisma and in that sense they have to respect it. If you have any problems with parents, for that you have to catechists, they can clarify things. Because there are always parents who are a little neurotic or have emotional attitudes, they can not bear the child sufferings anyway and they make many mistakes" (ibid.)
Yes, Kiko, parents make many mistakes. Everybody makes many mistakes. It is a human being. Have you ever make any mistake? Could you tell us just one of them? I have never heard you asking for forgiveness, I have never read a word from your mouth in that sense. It is true that maybe you are always among people who only see your face of holiness, It is impossible to say something against a living saint as you are, isn't it?
I have just remembered a little letter sent to the main newspaper in Spain, El País, by two men, not neocatechumenals at all and -by their words- absolutely securarized, who were your pupils. It is a pity, they did not convert and even worst, they thank you for their lack of faith. I understand they do not agree with your way of belief.

To our teacher Kiko Argüello
Remembered teacher, although we do not like at all your paintings and your sermons, we celebrate you devote yourself painting cathedrals for royal weddings and never more teaching as you did in the past.
You may not remember us, but we have not forgotten your smacking, and capones (raps on heads) and collejas (slaps on the back of the head) we had to endure in your drawing class at Decroly school in Madrid, back in the late fifties of the twentieth century.
Against you, we learned secular values and to revile religious fanaticism that only causes pain and violence. We knew then and we know now, as the Scriptures say, for your works (Byzantine, of course). Thank you, Kiko!
Note: to qualify something as being "bizantine" means to be something pointless, without goal, a waste of time. It comes from the times when Ottoman Empire's forces surrounded Constantinopla in XV century, while in the city theologians were discussing without end some questions impossible to solve. It is said that a controversy is Byzantine when the reached end is the same point from where it started.
By the authors of this letter, Kiko is known by his Byzantine works: in fact Kiko's style copies Byzantine Art, but in that double sense, even Kiko himself is like a "Byzantine" one.
Impossible stairs, like byzantine Kiko....
For conclusion: Kiko, I think your public image among your followers, the neocatechumenals, is absolutely different than your image in front of non neocatechumenal people. This time I even will consider there are some people among ordinary catholics who still belive in the first one.
How is it possible that having no more merits than real saints you will be considered so holy? How is possible than some eminences from catholic Hierarchy could still belive whatever you tell them? How is possible than after a great deceiver as Macial Maciel none of them had demanded an exhaustive checking of each of your words with reality?
One bellow another but still both are in the same side of Moebious' Strip
They could investigate from your supposed visions of Virgin Mary to the supposed meeellions and meeellions of neocatechumenal fruits from a tree which a duobius quality. Macial Maciel and Legion of Christ was the turning point, when distinguishing the roots of evil was so difficult only watching so wonderful and so many apparently fruits. How was it possible?
Legion of Christ was a tree so splendorous....meeellions of meeellions of vocations for consecrated and non consecrated religious life, of schools, institutes, universities....And all of those fruits come from the worst criminal: a man who reached priesthood with lies and actions against human dignity and against God.
Maybe we must turn on the focus from good fruits to bad fruits. It is impossible for a bad tree to give good fruits. Maybe with Maciel were most people who only wanted to see which apparently were good while just a few were able to see the bad ones, and they were never belived but accused of lying and doing the Devil's job.
If you do not see any bad fruit, you will think all the fruits are good. But, what happens when the problem is being unable to see any bad fruit? Is there any possibility for the hyphotesis "bad fruits are being hidden" for the eyes of those who supposedly had to value them?
If abused by Maciel were stopped once and twice...to avoid their accusations could reach Holy See, if they were silenced by decades to avoid whey could break Legions' holy empire, it is clear it was impossible for catholic Church to know what kind of Satanic man was Maciel.
"Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente" we say in Spanish. "Eyes don't see, Heart don't feel".
If Kiko was not a healthy mind since the beginnings, if he lies constantly about everything because he is a compulsive megalomaniac lier, the Church should have enough means to bring him to light. But Church, through some fat and happy shepered who feast and enjoy full freely in Domus, seems unable to move a finger, why?
If Schonborn and Pell and O'Malley realy loved Kiko so much, they should order a deep investigation to demonstrate if Kiko's marian visions were true or if he was just a fake. Maybe he had them but in his mind. Those cardinals might be the most interested on clarifying things about Kiko and his inspired Way. Why catholic Church does nothing about?
I am only a normal person. With my eyes I see how Kiko has been elected Doctor Honoris Causa by his contribution to family. Ok. I see Kiko loves extra size families and he encourages all neocatechumenals to have a lot of children. Ok.
So: Why there are not any pictures of Kiko Argüello with children? NONE!!!!
Mother Teresa lived among poors and miserables (truly miserables, I say). You can see a lot of pictures of her with poorest everywhere she passed through. What about Kiko and his holy defense of family? Why he never stays among meeellions and meeellions of children from his neocatechumenal Way? The only time he has maybe perhaps a few children near is when the Pope meets with neocatechumenal families at the Vatican.
Please, think and tie up loose ends.
