Due to the "anguish" caused by the Neocatechumenal Way in the diocese
The Church paralyzes the recruitment of 'Kikos' in Guam for one year
The archbishop will appoint an episcopal delegate to review the Catechetical Directory of the movement

(Cameron Doody) .- A hard blow to the Kikos of Guam. Archbishop of Agana, Michael J. Byrnes, has announced a "pause" for the recruitment of new members of the Neocatechumenal Way on the island for a year, along with the appointment of an Episcopal delegate to review his Catechetical Directory, The "anguish" felt in the local Church by some of the movement's distinctive practices.

Since being appointed to Guam last October, Byrnes has worked to dismantle the influence of the Camino on the island, which had reached exaggerated proportions thanks to the patronage of Archbishop Anthony Apuron, the former leader of the Guamian Church currently suspended between Accusations that he sexually abused altar boys in the 1970s. Such work has, for example, taken control of one of the seminars in the United States, property with a multi-million dollar value that Apuron would have transferred to Camino leaders based in the state of New Jersey.


But now, with a pastoral letter dated March 15, Byrnes goes one step further in his intervention of the Kikos. Appealing to the special commission given him by Pope Francis when he appointed him coadjutor bishop of Agana - that of "bringing healing to the divisions" that had spread among the faithful of Guam after the Apuron affair - Byrnes points out his intention to confront "the anguish Growing with regard to the multiplication of small communities in some parishes and to the differences in the manner in which the Mass is celebrated in the small communities of the Neocatechumenal Way. "

Among other measures, the Archbishop forbids the Neocatechumenals to recruit new members for a period of "about a year" and reminds them that they must ensure that their catechists are "sufficiently trained and certified to play their part."

Although there are "some permits for the celebration of the Eucharist particular to the Way," observes Byrnes - in regard to the moment of the Rite of Peace, for example, or to the admonitions that are inserted before the readings - This does not prevent that there can be no "clarity and unity" throughout the diocesan Church as to the form of this sacrament.

For this reason, the bishop states that "every solemnity of small communities (of the Way) must be celebrated on a consecrated altar, either in the main sanctuary or in an authorized chapel." And although the bishop continues, the Kikos Masses are organized on the fringes of other parish celebrations of the Eucharist every week after Sunday's eve, "some part" of the collection that is collected in these Masses "should go to the parish In order to cover costs".

Another element of the Way Masses that Archbishop Byrnes seeks to end is the "backwardness" with which, he says, the Kikos consume the sacred form. While it is true that members of small communities can stand for the dispensation of receiving bread and wine not in the communion, but "standing, standing in their place," it is also, says the archbishop, that "the Communicants are to consume the Body and Blood of Christ as soon as they are given the host or chalice in their hands." "These norms concerning the consummation of the Sacred Species are to be followed in every celebration of the Eucharist," says the archbishop of Agana.

After the controversy raised by his letter, Archbishop Byrnes issued the day after its publication a statement reaffirming that, although it recognizes "the good that has brought the Neocatechumenal Way to the lives of the people of Guam" and other sites , "The need to achieve conformity with liturgical norms is imperative ... and will only enrich the fruits" of the movement.

"The sooner we have unity and universal adherence as an Archdiocese to the norms established by the Church" in regard to the celebration of the Mass, "writes Byrnes in the press note,"before we will be on the path to reconcile with each other and heal our Diocese divided ". (End)

  1. Placing the NCW on notice is a good start but it'll take time for the Catholics on Guam to heal it's division and trust in the management of funds will have to be earned back over time. The damaged caused by the NCW was just too deeply seeded.

  2. The NCW has no intention of obeying Bp. Byrnes. They will continue to expand by any devious means. It's up to you to throw them out of your churches if their liturgical abuses and recruiting continue.

  4. Diana is looking at recruiting the other islands. So if there are other islanders within the pacific, BEWARE, and protect your parishes from the damage the NCW will cause after draining your islands financially.

  5. Our hope is that many other Bishops around the world will call for a review of the NCW in their diocese and request a pause in the recruitment of new members to the NCW until their reviews are completed and the deficiencies/heresies of the NCW are addressed.

    We should all make this one of our daily prayer intentions especially for for this coming Easter.

    1. The Statutes (where every liturgy is explained including the eucharist, the way communion is received,etc.) have been approved by 3 popes already. You guys are not only going against the NCW you're going against the Catholic Church, because wether you like it or not, WE ARE PART OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. So I would seriously reflect about what you guys are doing, because so much hate as you show in your comments is anything but Christian. God bless

    2. We're used to your kikocat bullshit. Show us where the statutes were "approved by 3 popes," and I mean official approval, not some "approving" words that the popes give almost everybody. Like I said, we know your bullshit.

      And even if the statute was approved - YOU DON'T FOLLOW IT. That's not me talking, that's the new Archbishop of Agana.

      Unfortunately for Anon 1:42 his/her defense of the NCW here in JungleWatch did a disservice to the NCW. Instead, he/she proved JungleWatchers’ point that many, if not most, of the NCW practices are arbitrarily “made up” by Kiko defended by "the pope approved." Perhaps Anon 1:42 came late to the JungleWatch party and is unfamiliar with how very very very familiar JungleWatchers are with that NCW same old tired line, “the pope approved” [even better in the specific comment above --- THREE, not just one, but THREE popes approved!] as a way of legitimizing its heretical teachings and practices. To make the statement that “the pope approved” doesn’t hold water in JungleWatch. As Tim wrote above, if Anon 1:42’s defense of the NCW is to be taken seriously, then produce a corrected and updated version of its 2008 Statutes to conform with fixes that Pope Benedict XVI cited “… the catecheses are in need of ulterior corrections, not being in full conformity with the Magisterium of the Church…” and to produce the indult authorizing non-conformance to the Church’s GIRM as requested by Fr. Paul last month. To date JungleWatchers (and beyond) are still waiting for the production of both materials.

    4. The Vatican never approved the NCW's liturgical abuses, and the lying heretics know it.

      Bp. Byrnes sudden moratorium on Neocat expansion is making them panic. If their blasphemous cult is technically part of the Catholic Church, it should be irrevocably excommunicated asap.

      Delete
    5. Our medieval bishop lets local Neocats do whatever they want because of the baksheesh they pay him. They're a small group that's only found in a few small, ethnically exclusive/racist parishes.

    6. Careful with the word "medieval." Our Church was more advanced then that it is now.

      Delete
    7. Then switch it to Renaissance, the late medieval tribute to wanton corruption and excess.

  6. Noticed how quiet tricky dick Eusebio has been silenced? What a moron.... And where is Monsignor David quitugua the tall idiot who is trained in canon law? Did the archdiocese finally remove that sorry a$$?

    Isn't it ironic how Diana would always blog that the jungle folks should write to the Vatican but now Diana is eating her blog cause now the NCW has been silenced (at least for a year)....

    1. We did write to the Vatican, and the Vatican - straight from Pope Francis through Archbishop Byrnes - has answered. So Diana, your turn to write to the Vatican. LOL.

    2. I wonder which identity Diana will use when writing to the Vatican. Diana is a FRAUD just like her beloved NCW. What a joke! LOL

  7. As Catholics parents have the responsibility to catechise their children how they choose! The Bishop cannot stop NCW children joining the NCW if parents decide that is best for them.
    DECISION TIME NEO MEMBERS!
    Who is influencing your decisions by manipulating the truth? Now is the time of favour-get up in the night and pray that you will not be deceived. Who has cast this spell on you? Where do you see corruption, deception and causes of division? The final deception would be for someONE to try and influence you that God has called you to ------. Let God show you not some human with vested interests!

    1. Yes, CATHOLIC parents are to catechize their children. But you aren't Catholic. But you're right. The bishop cannot stop parents from forcing their children to join another church. Go for it heretic.

    2. anonymous 4.40 again. I am advocating that Neos pray earnestly to ensure that they are not misled by catechists who have been proven to be dishonest, corrupt and self interested. I am advocating that they invoke God in prayer and to trust Him alone and the Pope's chosen representative. They can be assured that there is life after the NCW - I left 5 years ago!

    3. Perverts who force defenseless minors into the NCW should be arrested for child abuse, starting with parents. Credible documentation on how the theiving cult is designed to destroy lives is endless.

  8. Given the NCW's heretical catechesis on the Eucharist alone, there are more than adequate grounds to officially excommunicate it. What is Byrnes waiting for?!

    Given the Neocats' demonic beliefs, there is no need for ordained Catholic priests because there are no sacrificial elements or transubstantiated Species in the Mass. No Mass = No Catholic Church! Precisely what Kiko wants!

  9. Archbishop Byrnes said that "every solemnity of small communities (of the Way) must be celebrated on a consecrated altar, either in the main sanctuary or in an authorized chapel." I saw an NCW community gathering this morning in Asan parishes social hall. I drove by later on this afternoon and they were still gathered in the back of the church and not inside the main sanctuary. Looks like they celebrated on the banquet table again instead of the consecrated altar as directed. Nothing new here because the NCW is notorious for not following direct instruction.

    1. Let's be proactive about this. Write out what you saw, sign it and include your contact info. Put it in an envelope CONFIDENTIAL TO ARCHBISHOP BYRNES, and drop it off at the chancery office.

    2. Will do. Thank you Tim.

  10. NEOs are canvassing in Asan village at 6:00 pm, 6 April 2017.

  11. IT'S A KNOWN FACT ASAN IS OVER RULED AND OVER RUN BY NEOS...THAT'S THE REASON WE GO TO ANOTHER VILLAGE TO ATTEND MASS AND OTHER SERVICES..

    1. You should take back what rightfully belongs to the village and not let them takeover your parish. Don't let a few NEOs run you out of your beloved church.

  12. NEOS must be losing their MIDAS touch if they are out their Canvassing in their beloved Village...
