AROUND A NEOCATECHUMENAL GLASS CHALICE WITH MILK AND HONEY

Posted by LaPaz, Jungle Watch Correspondant from Spain.

In my last post I wrote about Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of Sacraments, meeting Kiko Argüello in Domus Galilaeae with many other Bishops and Cardinals. We suggested that perhaps his presence there did not mean a claudication to the charm of the trickster Kiko but to reasons related to his mission to ensure that the liturgy is valid and lawful and denounce the abuses that are committed.


But we have a real problem. Cardinal Sarah could not verify some of the most serious neocatechumenal abuses related with liturgy of Eucharist because Kiko has stipulated those are absolutely SECRET for anybody who has not done and finished the Neocatechumenal Way. 



I am talking of the daily Eucharist celebrated by elected brothers and sisters of the NNW during the Pascal Fifty. They have to wear a white linen robe, very expensive, by the way, over their clothes and stay with hands clasped over chest in prayerful pose. 

The most serious of these celebrations is not that strange attire and so contrived way of standing -I tell you that vision causes fear because they look like total sectarians- but the distribution of the Holy Communion with an added element: a glass copon with warm milk and honey, during Easter octave.

Today in Cruxsancta blog, for the first time ever, is published in internet the prayer which the celebrant priest has to say with the specification of when has to be recited. For many years there was only the testimony of former members who had finished the NCW, like me, who had told that aberration. 


But neocatechumenals first denied it, saying we were just liars, as always. When they could no longer hide it, then they said it was a sign introduced after the Eucharist celebration had finished, trying to avoid confusion.

Here there is the transcription of the original mamotrete in Spanish, as seen in picture below (published in Cruxsancta). I want to copy it in Spanish for potential help if any Spanish speaker needs it:


Bendición de la leche y la miel (después de la oración Post-comunio)

Bendice Señor 
esta leche y esta miel que tú has creado 
y sacia a tus siervos 
en esta fuente de agua viva 
que es el Espíritu de la Verdad.

Nutrenos con esta leche y esta miel 
pues tú has prometido a nuestros padres 
Abraham, Isaac y Jacob 
introducirnos en la Tierra prometida 
que mana leche y miel.

Conjunta y une por tanto Señor
estos siervos tuyos con el Espíritu Santo
como están unidas juntas esta miel y esta leche, 
representando la unión 
de la naturaleza celeste con la substancia terrestre, 
en Cristo Jesús Señor nuestro 
por medio del cual has hecho para nosotros 
todas estas cosas. 

Él, que vive y reina contigo, en la unidad del Espíritu Santo por los siglos de los siglos.
(Antes de entregar la copa con leche y miel el presbítero dice)
Gustad y ved qué bueno es el Señor
(y todos responden)
Dichoso el que se refugia en Él
(las mismas palabras se repiten al entregar la copa con leche y miel a cada hermano).


Here is the translation (sorry if it is not well adapted):

Blessing of milk and honey (after the Post-communion prayer)

Bless this milk and this honey 
that you have created 
and satiate your servants 
in this fountain of living water 
that is the Spirit of Truth.

Nurture us with this milk and honey 
with the as you have promised our parents
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob 
to introduce us to the Promised Land 
flowing with milk and honey.

Together and therefore, Lord,
unite these servants of yours with the Holy Spirit 
as they are united together this honey and this milk, 
representing the union
of the celestial nature with the terrestrial substance, 
in Christ Jesus our Lord
by means of which you have made for us 
all these things.

He who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
(Before delivering the cup with milk and honey the priest says)
Taste and see how good the Lord is
(And all respond)
Blessed is he who takes refuge in him
(The same words are repeated by handing the glass with milk and honey to each brother).



Let's see what does the Church say about the Prayer after Communion and how the Eucharist concludes:

From General Instruction of the Roman Misal

89. To bring to completion the prayer of the People of God, and also to conclude the entire Communion Rite, the priest says the Prayer after Communion, in which he prays for the fruits of the mystery just celebrated.
In the Mass only one prayer after Communion is said, which ends with a shorter conclusion; that is,
  • If the prayer is directed to the Father: Per Christum Dominum nostrum (Through Christ our Lord);
  • If it is directed to the Father, but the Son is mentioned at the end: Qui vivit et regnat in saecula saeculorum (Who lives and reigns forever and ever);
  • If it is directed to the Son: Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum (You live and reign forever and ever).
The people make the prayer their own by the acclamation, Amen.

D. The Concluding Rites
90. The concluding rites consist of
  1. Brief announcements, if they are necessary;
  2. The priest’s greeting and blessing, which on certain days and occasions is enriched and expressed in the prayer over the People or another more solemn formula;
  3. The dismissal of the people by the deacon or the priest, so that each may go out to do good works, praising and blessing God;
  4. The kissing of the altar by the priest and the deacon, followed by a profound bow to the altar by the priest, the deacon, and the other ministers.
(...)
163. When the distribution of Communion is finished, the priest himself immediately and completely consumes at the altar any consecrated wine that happens to remain; as for any consecrated hosts that are left, he either consumes them at the altar or carries them to the place designated for the reservation of the Eucharist.

Upon returning to the altar, the priest collects any fragments that may remain. Then, standing at the altar or at the credence table, he purifies the paten or ciborium over the chalice, then purifies the chalice, saying quietly, Quod ore sumpsimus (Lord, may I receive), and dries the chalice with a purificator. If the vessels are purified at the altar, they are carried to the credence table by a minister. Nevertheless, it is also permitted, especially if there are several vessels to be purified, to leave them suitably covered on a corporal, either at the altar or at the credence table, and to purify them immediately after Mass following the dismissal of the people.

164. Afterwards, the priest may return to the chair. A sacred silence may now be observed for some period of time, or a Psalm or another canticle of praise or a hymn may be sung (cf. no. 88).

165. Then, standing at the chair or at the altar and facing the people the priest, with hands joined says, Oremus (Let us pray); then, with hands extended, he recites the prayer after Communion. A brief period of silence may precede the prayer, unless this has been already observed immediately after Communion. At the end of the prayer the people say the acclamation, Amen.

The Concluding Rites

166. When the prayer after Communion is concluded, brief announcements to the people may be made, if they are needed.

167. Then the priest, extending his hands, greets the people, saying, Dominus vobiscum (The Lord be with you). They answer, Et cum spiritu tuo (And also with you). The priest, joining his hands again and then immediately placing his left hand on his breast, raises his right hand and adds, Benedicat vos omnipotens Deus (May Almighty God bless you) and, as he makes the Sign of the Cross over the people, continues, Pater, et Filius, et Spiritus Sanctus (the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit). All answer, Amen.
On certain days and occasions this blessing, in accordance with the rubrics, is expanded and expressed by a prayer over the People or another more solemn formula.
A Bishop blesses the people with the appropriate formula, making the Sign of the Cross three times over the people.[99]

168. Immediately after the blessing, with hands joined, the priest adds, Ite, missa est (The Mass is ended, go in peace), and all answer, Deo gratias (Thanks be to God).

169. Then, as a rule, the priest venerates the altar with a kiss and, after making a profound bow with the lay ministers, departs with them.

170. If, however, another liturgical action follows the Mass, the concluding rites, that is, the greeting, the blessing, and the dismissal, are omitted.




It seems Kiko and his liturgist could have twisted again the general norm entering through a rear window. They introduce the milk and honey ritual clutching point 170, considering that invented strange sign could be considered as "another liturgical action" which follows the Mass.

At this moment I would like to ask Cardinal Sarah why each new sign invented by Kiko could be considered as a liturgical action and not those introduced by any other theologian or priest. 

Why the Catholic Church teaches there is impossible to add anything to the perfect Holy Communion, but Kiko is allowed to consider this sign of the milk and honey comes to make Eucharist more perfect. 

If protestants do not belive in Eucharist as Catholics do, why Kiko as a catholic can introduce some changes which would be a reason for separation between protestants and Catholics?


If Vatican has approved this judaizing annexed ritual as a legitimate way of concluding the Eucharist, why Kiko never celebrates this kind of special mass for elected neocatechumenals with Bishops and Cardinals and even the Pope? 

I do not understand anything at all. 


Anyway, for help I copy here how the Eucharist with milk and honey during Easter octave has to be concluded, first in original Spanish and then in English:

Bendición Solemne

El Dios, que por la resurrección de su unigénito
os ha redimido y adoptado como hijos,
os llene de la alegría con sus bendiciones.

R. Amén

Y ya que por la redención de Cristo
recibisteis el don de la libertad verdadera,
por su bondad recibáis también la vida eterna.

R. Amén

Y pues, confesando la fe
habéis resucitado con Cristo en el bautismo, 
por vuestras buenas obras
merezcáis ser admitidos en la patria del cielo.

R. Amén

Y la bendición de Dios todopoderoso, 
Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo,
descienda sobre vosotros.

R. Amén



Translation:

Solemn Blessing

The God, who by the resurrection of his only begotten
Has redeemed and adopted you as children,
Fill you with joy with your blessings.

A. Amen

And since for the redemption of Christ
You received the gift of true freedom,
By his goodness you also receive eternal life.

A. Amen

And then, confessing the faith
You have been raised with Christ in baptism,
For your good works
You deserve to be admitted into the Fatherland of heaven.

A. Amen

And the blessing of Almighty God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Come down on you.

A. Amen

-----

After that, elected neocatechumenals wearing white linen robe start dancing around the table during the final chant. Meanwhile, priests go out in procession because Eucharist has finished.


More doubts now than before: Could we consider there are two different liturgical celebrations, first the Eucharist and second the milk and honey rite, joined one after another, as said in n. 170 General Instruction of Roman Misal, if after the milk and honey the priest gives a solemn blessing as if it was the end of the Mass? 

Or we are talking about a same only celebration, the Eucharist, with a non liturgical part annexed before the concluding blessing?

I wish Cardinal Sarah would give appropiate clarifications. This is a truly confusion.

  1. Thank you, La Paz! How precious, that the "Elect", in the final stage of the Way, celebrate a new, contrived rite of eating and drinking immediately after the Eucharistic rite! And we are told that the Church approves of this secret rite!

    JW readers will be delighted to learn of "il Viaggio di Nozze" or "Honeymoon" trip to Israel associated with this latter stage of the Way. More to come, folks.

    1. Don't forget the 70 raisins promised to anyone who gets to heaven.

  3. This is even more proof that the NCW celebration is a Protestant-Judeo gathering that tries to portray the characteristics of the Mass but is actually empty of any divine content. Therefore this celebration is NOT a mass and they are not consuming the Body and Blood of Christ at this gathering.

  4. NCW = Non-Catholic Worshippers.

  5. Apparently for the NCW, the very Body and Blood of Christ is not enough of a sign and reality, Kiko perhaps thinks he needs to introduce more signs to make up for that which is lacking in the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ, he introduces inferior natural elements of milk and honey in place of that which is supernatural, and of divine origins, The very Body and blood of Christ, the ultimate and absolute of all perfect offerings. How he has conned his followers to such foolishness, and people are falling for this crap from a mere man?

    1. With only 30% of "real" Catholics believing in the REAL PRESENCE, thanks to the decades of heresies and plain foolishness preached and practiced by many of our really hip "real" clergy, "real" Catholics are easy prey.

      Delete
    2. The 70% who don't believe in the Real Presence, Judas priests included, are fake Catholics who receive Communion with blasphemous regularity.

      They receive the Eucharist every Sunday, along with overt abortion advocates who are well known to the grinning clergy and EM's. All of those traitors should be excommunicated for denying the foundation of our Faith.

  6. What number of catholics would have to be Neocats in order for their liturgy to become the norm? 2 million? 3 million? 10 million? It wont be long!

    1. You must be a NEO, always concerned about the numbers. Its not the numbers that make the liturgy, its believing what the Son of God proclaimed that makes the liturgy, "Take and Eat, This is my Body, Take and Drink, This is my Blood." Blood that was offered for the remission of sins, that makes it a sacrifice, A sacrifice that happens at a consecrated altar, and not some beautifully decorated banquet table. Flesh and blood of the unblemished lamb of God are offered not milk and honey that Kiko and the NCW proposes. So the liturgy is the Liturgy because Christ and his church say it is, regardless if everyone in the world including KIKO and his NCW define it to be something else. We follow Christ and his Church.

    2. Unchecked the NCW will grow exponentially! Unchecked the NCW liturgy will become the norm. Realistically the nightmare scenario will take place unless the PEOPLE open their eyes and prevent it!

  7. Hopefully, Cardinal Sarah isn't a ringer like Zambia's former exorcist-Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo who was rightfully defrocked and excommunicated by B16. Milingo added exorcisms to his wild Masses and like Kiko, refused to stop his horrid liturgical abuses.

    Milingo was an idol of the sanctimonious, including Rome's famous chief exorcist Fr. Gabriele Amorth (d. 2016) who effusively praised him in one of his globally bestselling books. Diabolic Milingo publically married a Korean Moonie, left the Church and started an African movement advocating married Catholic priests.
