DON'T BLAME HIM!

Hey, don't blame him. 

He is the product of Kiko's theology (see "Kiko and Purgatory") and Apuron's (fake) seminary. According to Kiko, there is no Purgatory. And the only reason for All Souls Day (today in Guam) is to pray for the Poor Souls in Purgatory.

So this priest makes the best of it... (sort of). 



However, let 's not get too excited about blaming Kiko or this priest or even the NCW. Almost all funeral sermons and nearly every funeral announcement in our local media - placed there by well-meaning families - misled by mostly cowardly teaching from cowardly clerics, canonizes their dearly departed loved ones as "already in heaven," or even an "ANGEL!" When in fact, they are probably suffering in Purgatory like most of us will.

Heaven, Probably Not Your Next Stop!

Personal note: Sadly. I like this priest. He normally celebrates the Mass in a reverential way which I seldom see anywhere else. Maybe the new archbishop will help. Meanwhile, the rest of us can stop "angel-icizing" and canonizing our departed relatives. They most likely need our prayers, not our platitudes.



NOT GUILTY

As part of their quest to exonerate their man, Apuron supporters were hoping that David Sablan, president of the Concerned Catholics of Guam ("CCOG") - which played a main role in exposing Apuron and having him removed as Guam's archbishop, would be found guilty in the GHURA case. Unlike Apuron, Sablan didn't run. Sablan didn't hide. He stayed and fought for the truth. That's what you do when you have nothing to hide

Stand tall, Dave. 


Former GHURA commissioners not guilty


The verdict is in and former Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority Commissioners David Sablan, Cecile Suda and Roland Selvidge have been found not guilty. CONTINUED

CLERICALISM? .

From a culture of silence to cover-ups: How Guam ended up with 280 clergy sex abuse claims


A 9-year-old boy confided in his grandmother on several occasions that the parish priest was sexually abusing him.

The grandmother spanked the boy, identified in court documents only by C.B.D. to protect his privacy. She lectured him that the priest was "God's representative and not capable of such actions."

MSN vs LLG - NOT NEW

On 10/8/19, Bob Klitzkie - on his radio show TALL TALES - noted that the current public feud between Michael San Nicolas, Guam's Delegate to the U.S. Congress, and Lou Leon Guerrero, Guam's current governor, may go back to November 2013. (It occurs just after the top of the 2nd hour.)



On November 14, 2013, San Nicolas took on Guam's shameful culture of abortion - as championed by the current governor (since at least 1990) - when he went "off script" (i.e. the Democrat pro-abortion platform), and gave an impassioned speech in support of legislation which required "proper life-saving or life-sustaining treatment" for children who survive an abortion.

The bill had been vehemently opposed by our now-current governor (then-President of Bank of Guam) at a public hearing on October 10, 2013.


Leon Guerrero argued that with this bill, the Legislature was intruding on "the discretion, the responsibly, the acumen and the judgement of (the) Medical Professional…who is more equipped to make (these) decisions." (See Full Committee Report here.)

The bill was not about abortion. It was about infanticide. The child survives the abortion and is alive on the abortion table. The decision then is whether to kill the child, leave it to die, or provide medical care normally given to any other child struggling for life once born.

Bill 195-32 argued that a child, born alive, has the same right to life and normal medical care as any other child. However, Leon Guerrero argued that only medical professionals can make that decision.

San Nicolas' support of the Bill 195-32 pushed the bill to a vote:

Ten senators voted to let the baby live. Five senators voted to let the baby die. The bill was signed into law by Governor Calvo as PL 32-090

Given that this was about killing a child outside the womb and not inside, the bill brought into focus the hideousness that is abortion. There is little doubt that this bill, along with the steady stream of other bills brought to bear on the abortion industry by the The Esperansa Project, has resulted in the complete shutting down of an abortion industry on Guam which once killed 600 babies a year*, most of them Chamorro. 


* "Let me tell you, at the rate Guam Memorial Hospital is aborting children, between 400-600 a year, and most of them are not even reported. Where are the lives that we are going to protect and preserve? Here we go talking about indigenous rights and self-determination. What good is all that if we don't have our followers to follow and enjoy the fruits of our labor, of this generation's labor, of your labor and my labor to fix this island and have autonomous rights to govern our people?" Senator Elizabeth Arriola - quoted in: Asian/Pacific Islander American Women: A Historical Anthology, pg. 372, edited by Shirley Hume, Gail M. Nomura


And given the current governor's QUEST, and use of the public's resources, to find a "medical professional" to come to Guam to continue to kill mostly Chamorro babies (since no local doctor will do it), perhaps LLG has not forgotten MSN's  2013 "off script" finger to the face to his own Party power brokers. Speaking truth to power always has a price.

PDN: "Capuchins...more Guam sex abuse claims"

Many Catholics on Guam want to grant an exception to the Capuchins. "We have an 'Capuchin' parish," they say. But they forget. Apuron was a Capuchin. And he learned his filthy trade early. And he was NOT ALONE. 


Capuchins, Boy Scouts offer confidential amounts to settle more Guam sex abuse claims


Capuchin Franciscans and the Boy Scouts of America offered confidential amounts to settle additional Guam clergy sex abuse claims, which are still subject to court approval. CONTINUED

ADRIAN CRISTOBAL CONTINUED

Last week, we did a post titled THE CRISTOBAL FACTOR. The post was motivated by an sudden uptick in the page views of a 2016 story about Adrian Cristobal's rejection of his being assigned to San Dionisio Parish in Umatac by Archbishop Hon, the Vatican-assigned Administrator. As we hadn't heard anything from or about Cristobal in awhile, we were curious as to the sudden surge in traffic. 

As some know, Cristobal, the bully who happily helped oust Fr. Paul Gofigan and Msgr. James Benavente, ran away - just like Apuron - at the first mention of an abuse allegation against him. And like Apuron, remains in hiding. Yesterday, there was news about Cristobal in the PDN: 

Archdiocese sends to Vatican Father Cristobal's case on alleged sex abuses of minors

CURIOUS - THE CRISTOBAL FACTOR

Our "page views" have always told us a lot - and indeed - have been the main driver of this blog, which we now know eventually led to not just the overthrow of an evil bishop, but opened up the dark perverted recesses that have led directly to the heart of the Vatican. 


So why would a post from 2016 (per our page view stats) be getting the second most VIEWS this week...(September, 2019)?

Could it be an upcoming trial scheduled for November? 



By "The Way"....where is he?

TANQUAM NON FUERIT - Part 2: THE CHURCH HAS NO AUTHORITY TO BLAME "THE WORLD"


In the first installment of this series, I noted that the bishops at Vatican II (for the most part) "partied, drank, and signed" where the "Periti" (the theological experts) told them to.

The point is, that while Ben 16, et al. may want to blame the 60's and its so-called "sexual revolution" ... the "Church" (aka, it's Leadership) has...

NO AUTHORITY to blame "The World."

Jesus Christ, God, Himself, Incarnate, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, SMOTE himself upon the Wood of the Cross and leaked every last ounce of HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD into the DIRT of Golgatha - that we might have every power "in Heaven and on Earth" to OVERCOME THE WORLD.



Thus, we, ESPECIALLY CATHOLICS, and ESPECIALLY our BISHOPS, have NO RIGHT to BLAME "THE WORLD," which the Lord, Himself said that we "are the light of..." (Mt 5:14). 

SHAME ON US and SHAME ON THEM.

WE, Catholics, like no others, have the power of THE BODY, BLOOD, SOUL and DIVINITY -  of OUR DEALY BELOVED, LORD,  JESUS CHRIST, CRUCIFIED - to OVERCOME this sordid, pathetic, shameful, little "World." 

How dare we blame this temporal, diabolical diversion from the stupid, sex-soaked 60's for the FILTH IN THE CHURCH, when in fact it was the FILTH IN THE CHURCH which gave us "the stupid, sex-soaked 60's and the "sexual revolution" in the first place?

What don't these pretty Prelates get? 

But then BAD bishops...and priests...started with Judas...and, 



...Jesus picked him.

TANQUAM NON FUERIT - Part 1

Recently, both Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and our own archbishop (of Agana, who was probably just echoing Benedict) have lain at least part of the blame - for what Benedict himself once called “the filth in the Church” - at the feet of “The Sexual Revolution.”



Reuters reported that Benedict wrote:


“Among the freedoms that the Revolution of 1968 sought to fight for was this all-out sexual freedom, one which no longer conceded any norms.”

As much as I love and respect Benedict 16 (and our new archbishop), Ben 16 must be fingered as one of the progenitors of the problem which he now wants to criticize at age 91.

Several years before 1968, and "Woodstock (1969), there was Vatican II (1961),  the Original Revolution.

Now, hang on, hear me out. I'm not the Latin Mass reactionary that some think I am (I don't even attend the only Latin Mass available on Guam - for reasons I may reveal someday).

Ben 16 himself said that he participated in throwing out the "schema" of John 23 on the FIRST day of the Council.

I copy here part of a column I wrote for the Umatuna, and titled "The Lost Synod,"  published on 3/3/13:

Pope Benedict is one of the last living major figures who was present at the Council and he has spent much of his pontificate orienting the church towards its true meaning. Thus, the news that he would be holding an informal “chat” (as he called it) about the Council just days before retirement, had the air of a sort of “tell all” - a sharing of thoughts not normally shared in the otherwise careful and restrictive world of papal statements.

The pope did not disappoint - and left us much upon which to reflect. But the comment which caught my attention was his passing reference to the “Roman Synod”. It caught my attention because the Roman Synod is rarely if ever referenced by church authorities, and is considered by some to be a “lost synod” - erased, actually.

According to the Italian historian, Romano Amerio, there is no trace of the texts of the Roman Synod in any diocesan curias or archives, and can only be found in secular libraries. (1) Given the significance of the Synod, it’s erasure from church records is a clue to why disorientation appears to plague the legacy of the Council to this day.

The Roman Synod was convened by Pope John XXIII in January, 1960. It was meant to be the “solemn forerunner of the larger gathering (Vatican II) which it was meant to prefigure and anticipate” (2), and at which, the schema, the plans for the Council, as prepared by the pope’s preparatory commission, were finalized and promulgated.

According to Amerio, Pope John believed the Council would be completed in a couple of months. The pope’s hope for a speedy council was prompted by his belief that his preparatory commission had adequately prepared the schema for the Council. Thus the Council itself would be a rather simple and straightforward affair of fleshing out the schema and ratifying the final documents. “Over by Christmas”, said the Pope on October 11, 1962, the first day of the Council. (3)

Of course the Council was NOT “over by Christmas” nor the next, nor the next. The Council carried on for three years during which Pope John died. But it could be said that his plans for the Council died first. For as Amerio recounts, and Benedict reflects, the bishops’ first order of business at the Council was to set aside every one of the prepared schema, effectively negating nearly two year’s of work by the pope’s preparatory commission and nullifying all that he promulgated at the Roman Synod. (4)

In fact, as if to emphasize that this was their Council (the bishops) and NOT the pope’s, Amerio records that not only was the Synod never referenced in any Council document,  every trace of it was deleted from church archives. It was treated, as Amerio says, “tanquam non fuerit” (“as if it had never been”). (5)

Throwing the pope’s agenda in the trash is a pretty profound way to commence an ecumenical council, especially one of the size and impact of Vatican II. However, even Pope Benedict saw this as a good thing. In his “chat”, Benedict labeled the Roman Synod a “negative model” - a view which implies that he saw the tossing of its texts overboard (even if they did contain the papal desires) a sign that the Holy Spirit was present at the Council from the beginning.

In short, the Council, immediately upon convening, unmoored itself from the pope who had convened it. And while such an action may well be evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit guiding the Council beyond the mere wishes of a particular pope, it calls into question the credibility of those who insist that the effects of the Council were envisioned by John XXIII. As we just saw, and as Benedict affirmed, they were not.

In fact, not only did the final documents of the Council NOT embody Pope John’s vision as promulgated at the Roman Synod, according to Amerio, the papal agenda “was contradicted and negated in almost every detail.” (6) Nowhere is this more obvious than in the liturgical legislation called for by Pope John at the Roman Synod.

Later, both John Paul II and Benedict XVI, would be warriors for "Tradition." However, at Vatican II, in the sex-soaked 60's, they were both young revolutionaries - members of the "Periti" - the theological "experts" who ran Vatican II while the bishops, descendants of the Apostles, partied, drank, and signed (remember: Judas was an Apostle) wherever the Periti told them to - for much less than "30 pieces of silver."
