I am catholic and trust pope John 2nd desicions, he was guided by the Holy Spirit, I dont believe he would have aproved a "cult"
In the first times of the church, was necessary to acept and love Jesus, ( called Kerygma) the announment of the Lord !!
Jesus is alive, ! that was the predication of the apostles,
then the person was baptized ( for adults) no the other way around, of course babies were also baptized when parents wished.
This is what is done in Neocatechumenate.
Person has to know , love Jesus and acept Him as Lord and Saviour, no matter if the person has already baptized ( mostly all catholics, we are baptized when babies )
It is a re-discover
Then they received the Holy Spirit …
Its almost like the charismatic movement here in Mexico
They fight for the conversion of adults in order to love Jesus and love His Church…
First love to the Lord, then Apologetics to love the Church
I believe is a very smart way to evangelize
becuase who might have interest in the church if theres no love for Jesus first?
I think this is one of the reason many catholics leave the church… they say : now Jesus is my Lord and my Saviour !.. the point is … as catholics we also believe in this…and besides we are in the Church that Jesus built
