Madrid, 20 de mayo de 2017
Perdonad estas letras, pero necesitamos que nos ayudéis.
Terminado el curso de 2017 y preparándonos para el próximo curso, ahora en Junio tendremos la convivencia de todos los equipos itinerantes de Europa, donde revisaremos la situación del Camino en Escandinavia, sobre todo en Dinamarca, Suecia, Finlandia, etc., además del Reino Unido, Holanda, Alemania, Austria, Suiza, Checoslovaquia, todos los países de la ex-Yugoslavia como Croacia, Montenegro, Bosnia, etc. Además de todos los países que han estado bajo el comunismo como Ucrania, Letonia, Lituania, Georgia, etc. Además de esta convivencia tenemos el próximo 25 de Mayo la convivencia de las Familias, porque los itinerantes de todo el mundo nos piden cerca de 156 familias para reforzar la misión en sus naciones.
Pasado el verano tendremos primero la convivencia de sacerdotes y seminaristas de Italia y España, donde serán enviados sin dinero a anunciar el Evangelio de dos en dos. Después tendremos la convivencia de los rectores de los diversos seminarios, que nos reuniremos para acoger y distribuir a los cerca de 300 chicos que ya están preparados para entrar en un seminario misionero Redemptoris Mater. Después tendremos la convivencia de inicio de curso y al final de Enero tendremos, como todos los años, la convivencia mundial de todos los itinerantes del mundo, los rectores y también los responsables más antiguos del Camino. Allí veremos la situación de África, Asia y Oceanía, puesto que ya hemos visto Europa.
Of course it is not the first time at all that we know Kiko asks his followers urgently for money. For those, like me, who had been into the Neocatechumenal Way, it is something quite familiar. Kiko is always asking for more money and every year there are some extra-bags for all neocatechumenal members related with those collections.
The real surprise this time is we have the exclusive opportunity to read specific written instructions about the common procedure to make all that large ammount of money run from each community's bag to his hands. The responsible of each community collects cash donations. He is not told to deposit that money into a bank account in the name of the corresponding NCW's Foundation. Surely he has to hand over the donated money to his neocatechumenal parish's responsible, who uses to be one of the oldest community. Then, that parish's responsible has to collect the entire money from all communities and deliver it in person at the Neocatechumenal Center of the city or the region.
For example: the responsible of Saint Katherine of Labouré's neocatechumenal communities has to deliver 6.000 euro in cash to the Neocatechumenal Center of Madrid, Spain. Those 6.000 euro come from: 1st community 1.000 euros; 2 nd community 1.894 euros...6 th community 798 euros. I suppose that the Neocatechumenal Center of Madrid, Spain, will annotate in a private accounting how much money comes from each parish per each vicarage or something like that: Saint Ketherine of Labouré 6.000 euros; Saint Katherine of Sienna 8.000 euros; Saint Joseph 10.000 euros...
By the date, I have never seen any public accounting of the Neocatechumenal Way through its countless foundations. The thing I want to underline here is the fact that hundreds of thousands of euros in cash donations -from each neocatechumenal community around the world- are moved without any fiscal control because Kiko Argüello and his followers are accustomed to not operating with bank accounts. There is no trace of those donations. If they hidde the accountability of money it is because are evading taxes.
With the Neocatechumenal Way, everything travels in filth bags. Surprisingly people in the Way are used to belive Kiko's scarce explanations: money in cash because the NCW has no properties, because it is the best way to live in divine providence. A need arises and God provides the exact amount of money in cash, in hand, far from human eyes, far from any control because every control comes from the Devil. Only Judas cares about money. Anybody asks. Everybody looks away.
This letter shows what is the real fuel of the NCW. Sadly, if money stops then miracles finish. Since the tithe is one of the real tripod for each re-born in the faith (you will be asked monthly by your garantes, until your death, even having finished the Way about 1) tithe-diezmo; 2) opened to life 3) walking (=prayer, preparations, assistance, etc.), Kiko has made sure that money will never stop. As long as there is neo-faith. there will be cash money.
It is impossible to stay walking in a neo-community without non bringing cash. You can sing melodies, your catechist will never allow you to give your donations for the New Evangelization through a bank account. If personally you do want to suscribe your periodic donations for a RM Seminary, for example, by your bank account it is something absolutely apart. But you will never be allowed to give your tithe or make a donative for Kiko's questions but in cash and in bag.
Of course of course you will never ask your responsible what happens with your donations or your tithe. It is prohibited any question on how much money or why or when or who. The responsible only gives explanations to the catechist about it. And if a responsible does not agree with that way, then he will be miracously replaced by another person (yes, the result of community elections for the responsible always fits with the catechist election to ensure money and obedience).
Kiko is a master on spending other's money with too much generosity. He will not cry if twelve children in mission have nothing to eat in a strange country or if a woman has to suffer ten cesarean section without anesthesia. But he will die of sadness if there isn't enough money to pay for all included luxury stances and travel for two hundred bishops and cardinals in Domus. Of course Kiko's concerns on how to gain more power and influence are the truly priorities.
My mother has stayed near six years working for free in a RM Seminar. She has not got any written paper where her condition of missionary was recognised. Of course she used to say she was a missionary trying to translate to common language for common people why did she spend some years far from her family and her home. Any document to show she was living for six years cleaning, ironing, cooking and washing there as a volunteer.
It means zero, not only from the catholic Church (any official document) but from the NCW's official foundations or similar. Ethically this is an abuse. She did it because she wanted it. Of course nobody put a gun on the forehead, but she is an old woman, a widow. If Kiko doesn't care about litte babies in mission, then less about her.
I guess if bishops know that inmoral explotation. How do bishops value that extralimitation in grace? Do bishops have similar workers for free in their diocesan seminars? Do bishops pay in cash tax free for all the services they need in their dioceses? Do they receive their salary in envelopes or bags from the Vatican?
Black. Everything will turn on black in a few hours if Kiko finds the tap closed. And I want to highlight that "closed tap" maybe will not mean the bags and the envelopes should stop. Further, just declaring with transparency about incomes...just paying taxes for products and services...just telling the truth.
It is clear Kiko does not live according the principles he preaches for his followers. "Humilty, simplicity and praise" are the three stages of the NCW itinerary. Kiko's humilty consists in asking for half a million of euros in cash when he shows off a kind of charity of 50 euros bill for a poor man each morning, when he visits a church near his luxury secret home in Rome. Kiko's simplicity shines in his burgeoise way of life, with a private plane and paying in cash some thousands of euros from his pocket when Carmen needed a surgery (as I told in a post). Praise of the toast with the best champaigne when he enjoys life as a multimillionaire while his many of his followers live in misery working for free in the so called new evangelization.
