Yes, it was. Now I can understand why Kiko and Carmen were so determined to defend the little one in front of the massive. This is the only thing they prefer "in a few". 

These pictures are from Seminary Redemptoris Mater of Brasilia website and show the pure super holy way to celebrate the New Year's coming in any particular living room.

First dinner with loved ones (supposedly they were at upper neocat catechist's home in that country) and after that, a little neocatechumenal Eucharist at home. 

Pictures are from the times the founders visited Brasilia, Brazil, before RM Seminary was built. We are talking around 90's of past century. Note they yet used all neo-liturgical items Kiko has impossed during decades for the whole neocatechumenal universe.

It is nice to look at the little table on the corner, where are the silverware and else for the previous dinner. Very familiar. I hope they did not forget to clean the tablecloth before celebrating.

They are so few that is not needed for Father Mario Pezzi to make an extra effort. The one who seats close to Carmen is a presbyter, he passes her the chalice for Communion although he has not celebrated as a priest.

NOTE 1: I can not offer the link because suddenly it is broken. The main web is www.rmater.org.br Of course, I have not included those pictures were the house owners appeared.

NOTE 2: If you are thinking on having a Eucharist at your home with your most loved and relatives, please ask catholic Church for orientation, because if you are not Kiko or Carmen you will not be easily allowed. But only if you want to obey to be right.
If you prefer doing things as neocatechumenals use to do, then do not ask for any permission.

  1. Thank You Lapaz for sharing this piece on how the NCW founders celebrate their eucharist. I have always understood that the Altar located in Church are sanctified and consecrated primarily for the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and that celebrations any where else are permitted by the bishop only in extra ordinary circumstances. The NCW practice of haphazardly celebrating their eucharist anywhere does not give reverence to the Holy God of the Universe who deserve the very best of what we can offer. It also makes one wonder if the table or location where they celebrate was desecrated by some unholy action, e.g. did someone have sex on that picnic table the night before? To those of us who are concerned about the very gifts we offer to Almighty God, It matters that not only should our hearts be pure, we also have to honor God with the best liturgy, best choir, best offerings, for he is a Holy God.. "For from the rising of the sun to its setting my name is great among the nations, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a pure offering; for my name is great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts. But you profane it when you say that the LORD's table is polluted, and the food for it may be despised. 'What a weariness this is,' you say, and you sniff at me, says the LORD of hosts. You bring what has been taken by violence or is lame or sick, and this you bring as your offering! Shall I accept that from your hand? says the LORD. Cursed be the cheat who has a male in his flock, and vows it, and yet sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished; for I am a great King, says the LORD of hosts, and my name is feared among the nations. Malachi 1:11-14 RSVCE
