Kiko Arguello: “The next Pope needs to be an apostle and martyr”

2013-03-11

KIKO ARGÜELLO
Initiator of the Neocatechumenal Way
"We directly see the urgent need to evangelize in Asia, so countries like India, China, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia. We spoke to the bishop of Mongolia and he said: 'I have 6 millions non Christians to help me.  I only have 700 Christians and no priests.' So we are planning on sending families, and doing whatever is needed.”

Argüello knows Benedict XVI quite well. They met for the first time in Germany in 1974. Back then, professor Ratzinger, expressed interest in the Neocatechumenal Way. He even recommended this type of Catholic formation for adults to some parishes in Munich. Benedict  XVI, approved the statues of the Neocatechumenal Way in 2008 and in 2012, some of their liturgies.

Now that the Pope has resigned, Kiko Argüello says he has a clear idea of what the Church needs in its next Pontiff.

"If you really want to know I would say an apostle and a martyr. Benedict XVI told the Roman clergy that Vatican II, still needs to be fully  implemented. So the next Pope should help put the ideas of the Council into practice.  Above all he has to prepare the Church for a profound New Evangelization in different levels. But first we need to have adult Christians practicing the faith.”

Argüello says Benedict  XVI could have reduced the number of trips he took and perhaps changed his schedule to one that's more appropriate for his age, but his decision to resign took great courage, says Argüello, because above all Benedict XVI was thinking about the best thing for the Church.
