More of a question that a post. Does anyone have any personal contact with the Neocatechumenal Way? I never heard of them before, but I learned today that the Bishops of Japan have been trying to ban them from their entire country. The Wikipedia article is lengthy, but shows signs of having been edited by a partisan. According to Wikipedia, they have 250 communities in the US.
The idea of the movement sounds intriguing, but I noticed that its constitutions appoint leaders for life, which seems unhealthy.
