Pope to Celebrate Huge Mass With Neocatechumente

Edit: you see who he supports and why.

The movement was founded in 1964 and claims to exist in 124 nations with around 25,000 communities in almost 1,500 dioceses.

Rome ( On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Roman branch of the "Neocatechumenal Way", Pope Francis will celebrate a service with its members in Rome on 5 May. Tens of thousands of participants are expected to attend the celebration at the University of Tor Vergata on the outskirts of Rome.

The Community of Neocatechumenate (Camino Neocatecumenal / Neocatechumenal Way) was born in 1964 in Madrid from the spiritual teachings of the then 25-year-old Spanish artist Francisco "Kiko" Argüello among the poor of Madrid. Argüellos was the employee of the now deceased Carmen Hernandez.

The Neocatechumenate wants to accompany baptized Christians in the long term on their way of faith and to intensify their religious life. A solid tribe of people who are to live the faith and carry it on. The name of the community, which was finally officially recognized by the Vatican after a two-decade trial in 2008, is inspired by the introduction of baptismal candidates ("catechumenate") into the Christian faith. Camino members are accompanied on their journey of faith to intensify their religious life. The members try that through spiritual exercises as well as the formation of solid groups, which exist over a period of at least 15 years. In 2005, the Vatican urged that members integrate more strongly than before into existing parish structures.

The movement claims to exist in 124 nations with around 25,000 communities in almost 1,500 dioceses. There are more than 100 neocatechumenal seminaries with 2,000 students, all bearing the name "Redemptoris Mater" (Mother of the Redeemer) - including one in the Archdiocese of Vienna. In the dioceses, the movement is usually active at the invitation of the local bishop.

In Austria, the first community of Neocatechumenate was born in the spring of 1974 in the Viennese parish Döbling-St. Paul. Today there are communities and priests from the "Neocatechumenal Way" in several Austrian dioceses, including Vienna, Linz, St. Pölten, Graz and Salzburg. The "Mission College Redemptoris Mater" is located in Vienna-Ober St. Veit.

They believe the church was "asleep" from Constantine till vc2, when it suddenly "woke up". So in rejecting all the dogmata defined by those interventing councils, they are heretics. They also reject the salvific value of the crucifixion.
Their consecration and consumption of the Eucharist is sacreligious.
They love Francis BTW.

They destroyed my former parish.
Most of the parishioners who joined them have subsequently left I've been told.

A cult. Read the book "The Pope's Armada."

The three comments documented are very interesting. "Emotion" is not for the long haul especially of 2000 years. To label this a cult and to state that the crucifixion is not a means of salvation is very disheartening.---My question would be the value of baptism to the current administration. If every man (woman) is equal in the sight of God, then what need is there for baptism. It would seem that the modern humanistic man (woman) and his (her) fulfillment is the new Christian image. Baptism would then only be a symbol for an ancient cult much like St. Patrick's feud with the Druids.----The rejection of the Crucifixion and the accentuation of the Resurrection should be a clue to the development of an earthly utopia instead of being part of the mystical body which has gone on from the Crucifixion based on God's covenant with Abraham and then Moses.---Moses preached right and wrong. "Amoris Laetitia" just does not do that. It appears to justify immorality for fornicators, adulterers, and sodomites.

Great book!

Athelstane said...

A remarkable expose of the charismatic groups, but that said, the publisher blurb speaks of "extreme right-wing values." If only!

Tancred said...

The author’s point of view has some shortcomings to be sure.

The Neocats employ the same recruiting methods as do the Masonic. The more time you spend with them they will gradually introduce more and more of their aberrant beliefs/practices. They know full well that the informed recruit would see through their nefarious ways if they expose them to all their rubbish at once. Clever tactic...the same method employed by Cranmer of Henry VIII' time.
