The odd Mass of the Neocatechumenal Way

The Neocatechumenal Way, a popular Spanish community, celebrates Mass in a peculiar manner.  First of all, the community ignores the altar, preferring to sit around a table.  There are also interludes for catechetical "monitions," as well as for "resonances," which sound to us like the dreaded "sharing."  There is, of course, a Bugnini connection.

The Vatican has been reviewing the Way's liturgy, and later this month will pronounce its verdict.  Sandro Magister has more here.
