After posting the news link about Archbishop Byrnes' letter regarding the NCW to my Facebook Timeline, I received a few comments asking "what does this mean?"

Here is my reply:

At the root of many of the problems in the Archdiocese of Agana is the sinister insinuation of the beliefs and practices of a man named Kiko Arguello who founded the Neocatechumenal Way. 

Kiko's teaching are at odds with true Catholic teaching, specifically as regards the Eucharist. He does not believe or teach that the Eucharist, the consecrated bread and wine, actually are the Real Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, but that Christ is simply present amongst the community during their "eucharist."  

Because Kiko believes different it is critical for his members to practice different since the "law of prayer is the law of belief." In other words, what we do not only expresses what we believe, it determines it.

This is why, on January 17, 2006, five days after Pope Benedict XVI publicly pleaded with Kiko Arguello to obey the CDW instruction "issued in my name," Arguello answered the pope with a very public and clear "NO!" 

Kiko has been brilliant in inserting himself and his teachings into the Catholic Church, masking them behind apparent orthodox "lip service" to the Roman Magisterium, and he has also been brilliant at buying influence within that same Magisterium. 

In short, all of this is an evil heresy that is, like all heresies, the work of Satan to rip apart the Bride of Christ, the Church. 

With this letter, Archbishop Byrnes takes dead aim at the aberrant and illicit NCW communion rite which is distorted from the communion rite required by Rome. The letter strikes at the heart of Kiko's heresy, though few will yet call it that. 

On Guam, the heresy was particularly abhorrent because its leaders bought the archbishop (Apuron,) in order to have unrestricted access to the diocese in turn for protecting Apuron from the law suits Apuron knew would one day come.

It's an extremely sick and twisted mess and sadly, many are losing their faith over this. The challenge always remains: we can get bitter or we can get better. Satan doesn't care how he wins your soul, as long as he does. It's your choice.

Note: Related to this choice, I would like to offer, once again, the reason for WHY I'M CATHOLIC (and why we must STAY Catholic). My ebook can be ordered here for free or any price you'd like to pay for it. It can also be ordered at
