The Neocatechumenal Way celebrates its 40th anniversary of its arrival in Berlin with a concert performance of ‘The Suffering of the Innocents’, a symphony by its founder, Kiko Argüello. The symphony, ‘The Suffering of the Innocents’ presents Talmudic Judaism as if it is the Old Testament religion practiced by the Holy Family. Can you imagine Jesus the Christ praying to Hashem (i.e. The Name)? Or the Blessed Virgin Mary abandoning her son, Jesus, at the foot of Cross in order that she can cry with the Talmudic Jews (who brag they killed her son, see Talmud Sanhedrin 43a (Steinsaltz Edition) page 158 & page 159) in the ‘gas chambers’ while they recite the Shema Yisrael? (Which is a denial of the divinity of Jesus the Christ.) Look no further than the absurd mockery composed by Kiko Argüello. He and the rabbis have been bringing the altar of the ‘Holocaust’ to the members of the Neocatechumenal Way and the world for years, masquerading as Catholicism. The Neocatechumenal Way sells itself as having rediscovered early Christianity — converting pagans into Christians — when the reality is the Neocatechumenal Way converts gentiles into noahide members of Holocaustianity who look to their Christ denying and Christ killing ‘elder brothers’ for guidance. Francis, Benedict XVI, and John Paul II love this garbage. It’s not a stretch to say that they are in agreement with the rabbis in cursing those who don’t go along with this charade. If these outright falsehoods, accepted and celebrated by the hierarchy and pewsitters of the Novus Ordo, don’t send cold shivers down your spine, what would?

To His Excellency Most Reverend Msgr. Heiner Koch, Archbishop of Berlin
Pope Francis has joyfully heard that the execution of the symphony "The Suffering of the Innocents" by Kiko Argüello is to be held in Berlin and greets all those who agreed to the occasion of this event at the Berliner Philharmonie. Rooted in tradition and inspired by biblical lamentations, this symphony commemorates the many victims of the Shoah. Never must the memory of the atrocious violence, the indescribable pain and the extermination of a people cease. It is rather a constant warning to all of us of a commitment to reconciliation, mutual understanding and love towards the "elder brothers", the Jews, and at the same time to a life dedicated to the suffering, the needy and all those who from the profound yearning to salvation.
With the best personal wishes.
Pietro Cardinal Parolin Secretary of State of His Holiness

A message from the composer, Kiko Argüello
Dear brothers and sisters: How could I presume to compose music? Is it my pride? Or my vanity? Be that as it may, an elderly priest once told me: “Never avoid doing good for fear of vanity, because that comes from the devil.”
To do good...” Is it good to try to compose music? I present to you a small musical composition, which I would like to be a homage to the suffering of the innocents. Can music, perhaps, say something more profound on such a significant theme...? The suffering of the innocents... The philosopher Sartre said: “Woe to the man whom the anger of God crushes against the wall,” and Nietzsche: “If God exists and does not help those who suffer, he is a monster, and if he cannot help them, he is not God, he does not exist.”
To be crushed against the wall. Men lying on the street, dying of cold. Children abandoned and housed in horrific orphanages, where they suffer violence and are abused. That woman, whom I knew in that neighborhood, suffering from Parkinson's disease, abandoned by her husband, whose mentally-ill son beat her with a stick, and was begging for alms. I was overwhelmed…
What a mystery the suffering of so many innocents who bear the sin of others: incest, a violence unheard of, that line of naked women and children going towards the gas chamber, and that deep pain of one of the guards who was hearing inside his heart a voice: get in line with them and go with them to die; and he did not know where that voice was coming from…
Many say that after the horror of Auschwitz it is no longer possible to believe in God. No! It is not true!
In this symphony, Mary is portrayed totally submitted to the scandal of the suffering of the innocents in her own flesh. “Oh, what pain!” a voice sings as a sword pierces her soul, united to all the mothers that watched their children being killed in the concentration camps, that wept while singing Shema Yisrael. We wish to offer this work as a bridge of love and reconciliation.
