DID WE JUST SEE A DIVINE SHOT ACROSS OUR BOW LAST WEEK?

(Posted by Frenchie)


Was last week well publicized fiery cataclysm of Notre Dame of Paris
a divine sign for both the French and the Universal Church?


With the help of 24 hours media coverage, many people were able to witness the destruction by fire of one of the iconic building of western Catholicism: the Cathedral of  our Lady of Paris.
Believers, lovers of the art and tourists alike were shocked that such a well recognized building.
Notre Dame is in fact the most visited building of the Paris landscape with 12 millions visitors yearly.


A sense of awe and despair was felt by tens of thousands of people around the world as people witnessed the expression of adoration,which came to symbolize the faith of the builders of such an exquisite piece of architecture, literally go up in smoke in front of our eyes. 


To most practicing Catholics, the fact that this plague would happen at the beginning of the Holy week, was not lost.
Yet few commented on the fact that the end of Holy week, the beginning of our Year, the celebration of the rising of our Lord Jesus Christ was also marked by another awful event: the Martyrdom of hundreds of innocent worshipers in Sri Lanka. 



Could this be a divine sign, a warning, of things to come, if we continue to not follow the advises of our Lord and Savior?

MEMORIAL MASS FOR JOHN TOVES THIS COMING SATURDAY

(Posted by Frenchie)

As many of you have already noted through different notifications in the PDN and on social media, our dear friend John Toves, has left us last Wednesday, just before the Easter Tridium.
After a long and difficult fight against cancer, he has now moved on to a better and more just world.

As Tim, and other commentators have noted, we owe John Toves a debt of gratitude, for being the first courageous person to publicly denounced Apuron for the sick person he is.
He became the Catalyst which allowed for many survivors to come forward.






The funeral will take place in the Bay Area in California, on Saturday the 27th of April.

Here on Guam, a Memorial Mass will be celebrated on Saturday April the 27th, at 1PM at our Lady of Lourdes Church in Yigo.

You are all invited to participate

A pot luck meal will take place after Mass at the Hall of our Lady of Lourdes.

Fr Paul Gofigan will be the celebrant.

If you have any question, feel free to contact us.

PDN: LAWSUITS AGAINST THE ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA

PDN: CHURCH AT CROSSROADS

People of faith reflect on the Catholic Church at a crossroads

Johnny S. Villagomez said he's lost trust in the Catholic priests who have been named in clergy sex abuse lawsuits against the Archdiocese of Agana. But he hasn'tt lost faith in God and the Catholic Church.

“Who else is going to take care of the church if not us, the believers?” Villagomez said, after he and his wife, Linda, attended Palm Sunday Mass.

WE COUDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU

As I have no interest in what The Diana says or has ever said, I don't waste my time there, but that is not to say that I don't appreciate it when others send me postings which help to advance JungleWatch. 

In fact, I almost wish that I did not have this automatic reflex to vomit whenever I do see The Diana's postings because - since I don't watch TV - I could probably use the comic relief that sometimes the regular TV news can afford you.

Apparently, thanks to Zoltan's letter in the PDN, The Diana once again has her panties in a twist over her blog being characterized as "Neocat blog," or as a "semi-official" Neocat blog as Zoltan characterized it. 

The fact is of course - and this is a point that we have always made - so long as The Diana chooses to be The Diana - instead of a real person with a name (like me), then ALL OF US are free, to not only characterize her blog however we want, but also to name her whatever and whoever we want. 

I choose to name The Diana "May Llanes" because, well this:


And this:


And then when we posted about this a couple years ago, within a few days, we got this:


Actually, Zoltan and The Diana used to be friends:


But while we all may laugh at the laughingstock that is The Diana, I would admonish you to also offer prayers of thanks. 

As I've shared before, The Diana, almost singlehandedly brought down Apuron, and has wrought (though it still may take awhile) the death of Kiko's Heresy. 

Thanks to The Diana, she kept the conversation going after The Father Paul Thing, when there really wasn't anything to talk about, and two years before Apuron's first victim took to the streets. 

In fact, I learned later, that it was the ongoing tit for tat between The Jungle and The Diana that awoke the sleeping monster that Apuron had long since thought he had killed and buried. 

Personally, I want to thank The Diana for pushing The Jungle to nearly NINE MILLION VIEWS. 

Seriously, Diana, we couldn't have done it without you. Oh, and about "the other thing," your time is coming. 

COURAGE...May. 

P.S. Just for fun (if you're looking for some) JungleWatch has over 140 posts exposing The Diana, or more precisely, the Agenda of Pius, the Fake Monk. 

WILL AGANA BURN?



“If the Shepherds of the Church refuse to do penance for the spiritual conflagration of the past fifty years, and for the betrayal of Christ’s universal command to evangelize, should we then not fear that God might send another and more shocking sign, like a devastating conflagration or earthquake that would destroy St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome? God will not indefinitely and shamelessly be mocked by so many Shepherds of the Church of our own day, through their betrayal of the Faith, their sycophantic serving of the world and their neo-pagan worship of temporal and earthly realities. To them as well are addressed these words of Christ, ‘I tell you, unless you repent you will all likewise perish.’” (Lk 13:5) - Bishop Schneider: Notre Dame fire is sign of ‘spiritual conflagration’ in the Church 


REPORTED IN USA TODAY:
Apuron said this climate, "shown by the local media, which hampered the work of the court of first instance, testifies to the presence of a pressure group that plotted to destroy me, and which has made itself clearly known even to authorities in Rome."

ZOLTAN

Letter: Neocatechumenal Way needs openness, transparency

"An oppression of dissent, including merciless censorship of content and comments at the Way’s semi-official Guam blog, is evidence of fear of openness and transparency. Reality should regain its true meaning as the things we see around us in the light of Catholic teaching."

Because of the significant events that have shaken our Catholic Church on Guam, it is indispensable to face the new realities of religious life to appreciate necessary changes that will ensue. Of particular interest is the future of the worldwide Catholic semi-charismatic movement, the Neocatechumenal Way, on Guam, which has played a significant role in Catholic life during the past 15 to 20 years.  CONTINUED

SAVING APURON...THE REST OF THE STORY...FOR NOW

During an in-flight interview on August 26, 2018 from Dublin to Rome, Pope Francis, speaking of his decision to personally entertain Apuron's appeal, said: “It is a complicated case, on one hand, but not difficult because the evidence is clear.” 

Given all the trouble we had had in getting Rome to even take notice, all the bait and switch, the deflection, the denial, the threats of suits against those of us who spoke up, the pulling back the curtain on Cardinal Filoni's role in confounding our efforts, the very vague Sentence that left doubt about what Apuron was actually found guilty of, and Apuron's own threat to exonerate himself in the appeal by "discrediting the witnesses" (starting with me - or didn't you think I knew that), we had every reason to ask WHAT NEXT? when the Pope, in personally taking on Apuron's appeal, decided to bypass the tribunal and then characterized the case as both "not difficult" but "complicated."

And then there was the matter that Apuron had taken advantage of the vague Sentence (which stated only that he had been found guilty of "certain accusations") by inferring that the main accusations - sexual abuse of minors - was not among the "certain accusations," by saying upon submitting his appeal: "I am relieved that the tribunal dismissed the majority of the accusations against me."

For those of us who had been in this battle from the beginning, we knew exactly what was going on. 

Everything must be seen through the lens of the hierarchy of the Neocatechumenal Way. I am not speaking here of most people's personal experience of the NCW, I am speaking of the parasitical power bosses that run the NCW and use it as a Trojan horse in the Church to suck off power, money, and control. 

To understand just how parasitic and powerful these bad guys are, one has only to read the sordid history of how the NCW hierarchy finagled away the Yona Property, our local church's largest material asset, under the guise of establishing a seminary, and then hid the transaction for years. (For just a taste, read Certificate of Title Fiasco - wherein these operators were able to worm their way even into GovGuam - and The Ultimate Treachery - wherein they tried to pervert a Carmelite Superior.)

So when Pope Francis first said the he was going to bypass the Vatican tribunal process and personally hear Apuron's appeal, and then said that the case was both "not difficult" (because the "evidence is clear") but "complicated," we knew exactly what was going on: the same parasites were at work in Rome to save Apuron - NOT because they cared about Apuron, and not even because they cared about the NCW, but because they cared about their power.

To even begin to understand this mess, one must first understand that Apuron was the NCW's mascot bishop. Apuron was the only bishop in the world known to be one of the "brothers," i.e. just one other member of a Neocat "community." And we on Guam, beginning with Apuron's infamous public slamming of a Vatican directive in 2006 (and in particular his on-air challenge to the legitimate authority of a Cardinal-Prefect), were well aware that Apuron was OWNED by the Neocat power bosses, and that they, not the Pope, were his superiors. 

It is very clear that those bosses never thought things would go as far as they did. In the beginning it was just this noisome blog that wouldn't shut up. But in their attempt to shut down this blog, they made a big mistake. In fact, if anything or anyone can be directly credited with bringing Apuron down, it was the deluge of hateful, threatening, and mostly anonymous comments (nearly 70,000). These comments kept people around the world coming back to watch the war, and every log-on added another number to the page view counter. And every number on that counter was another thump of the "tell tale heart" buried beneath Apuron's chancery floor. 

As the page views climbed into the millions and the country counter began registering nearly every nation in the world, the press began to take notice, but more importantly, on the other side of the Pacific, a certain John Toves began to take notice. And John knew what we didn't: "THE AGAT BOYS." And I assume you know the story from there. All hell broke loose. 

In fact, Apuron foresaw what was going to happen. For decades, he had been quite sure that his secrets were secure. But this blog thing presented a problem he hadn't anticipated: people talking, or, more specifically, people talking anonymously (i.e. without consequences), and in a venue that the whole world could see. At some point, Apuron knew that it would only be a matter of time before the boys he had long since buried deep 'neath the dirt of his power, would wake from their sleep of shame and grief and begin to speak. And speak they did. 

This is why Apuron went to Rome in October of 2013 to try to shut me down. I still remember my amusement when I got that letter from Cardinal Edwin O'Brien, Grand Master of the Equestrian Knights of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, threatening me to "desist" from going after Apuron. 

I found his letter amusing because first it was obvious that O'Brien hadn't written the letter himself. Second, it was laughably obvious that English was a second language for the writer of the letter (and O'Brien is an American). Third, it was just as obvious that O'Brien hadn't even read the letter or he would have corrected the grammatical errors. And fourth, it was very clear that Apuron or his people had approached O'Brien to shut me up because it is highly doubtful that a powerful Vatican Cardinal would spend his evenings drinking wine and reading JungleWatch - which at that time, had less than 50,000 views.

It wasn't until John Toves showed up that I began to put the pieces together. Apuron knew that the growing attention to this blog, and its venue for anonymous comments, would soon attract the attention of something he had long since suffocated in the dark cellar of his personal history, even if he (and he alone) could never completely shut out the dull thumping of those tell tale hearts. Thus, his run to Rome and his (and O'Brien's) attempt to bully me into silence. 

(BTW, the story gets even wilder when in the aftermath of the McCarrick thing, Archbishop Vigano names O'Brien in his August 2018 letter as one of the prelates caught up in the homosexual cabal that is running the Vatican. But I'm saving that story.)

Given just the few items mentioned in the foregoing, one can already get a feel for what the Pope meant when he said Apuron's case was "complicated." What was complicated for the Pope was not whether or not Apuron was guilty. The Pope had already said the "evidence is clear" on that matter. What was complicated was how he was going to navigate through the same sort of treachery that we have had to navigate here at Ground Zero Guam these many years. 

Pope Francis' marching orders appear to have been clear: he was to exonerate Apuron. We know this because the power brokers who ordered the Pope to do this were the same masterminds who wrote Apuron's appeal letter for him wherein he aggressively declares that he will be exonerated through his appeal. Apuron's handlers would not have written and stated this so publicly had they not had assurances that Apuron's exoneration and restoration to power was forthcoming. They had their guarantees (most likely from "the Red Pope").

At this point though, it was no longer about the NCW power bosses saving Apuron, it was about Apuron saving the NCW bosses' power. Because Apuron had been so celebrated throughout the NCW, Apuron's flaming fall from his exalted place, especially as the first bishop to be tried and found guilty by a Vatican tribunal in modern times, would so wound the NCW (i.e. undermine its wealth base - the "black trash bags") that it too would follow Apuron down in flames. 

Remember now that we are not talking about the NCW "on the ground" - the evangelism and the communities and what happens there, we are talking about the drivers of the Trojan horse, the power bosses who drive the horse under the guise of "the new evangelization" and have cancerously wormed their way into the veins of wealth and power in almost every corner of the Universal Church. 

This is a topic for another day, but even the sinister NCW bosses are puppets of a higher power, because at root, Kiko's theology is (in the words of Bishop Schneider) a "Jewish-Protestant heresy." And heresy has only one Author: the same who said "you will not die." 

Apuron was well on his way to being exonerated, and if not exonerated, at least he would be given cover to hide under the crafty term "certain accusations," so that the world, and specifically the NCW world, might think that the whole deal was about some mere mismanagement, and that Apuron (per his own story) was the victim of a nefarious real estate salesman (me) who allegedly was in league with a Chinese gambling interest. (SMH)

But then came the McCarrick thing. 

McCarrick, as archbishop of Washinton D.C., had bestrode the the U.S. Catholic world for many years, and in retirement, as we now know, had slithered and slimed his way in to the highest halls of power in Rome, and, specifically, with Pope Francis, had become a king maker, directing Francis (or so we are now learning) as to which of his buddies (think Cupich) would make archbishops and cardinals of powerful, rich American dioceses. 

McCarrick's history proved to be too sordid for Francis to ignore, and as the World glared in on him over the McCarrick thing, Francis' options to help the Neocats (via Filoni) save Apuron, quickly dissipated.

With the Apuron thing hanging over his head, Francis could not very well exonerate the first bishop to be convicted by a Vatican tribunal led by one of the world's most well known and trusted Cardinals (Burke), even if Apuron was a no name himself from a place most of the world knows little about. So Apuron was doomed.

But not yet.

Remember, this is not about the NCW saving Apuron, this is about Apuron saving the NCW...by saving Apuron, even if the lies have to get bigger. Thus, Apuron's response to even the Pope finding him guilty on appeal. As we know, Apuron (actually, his handlers) continues to maintain his innocence, but (and I know exactly who this is aimed at) he continues to cast himself as the target of a calculated conspiracy. 

Yes, "the evidence is clear," but the case is "complicated." And now you know why. And soon, the day is coming when you will know "the rest of the story."

ISHIZAKI: APURON NEEDS TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY

Ishizaki: Anthony Apuron needs to take responsibility for his crimes

The fall from grace of former Archbishop Anthony Apuron has been adjudicated by the Vatican. But what about closure for the victims?

The church has gone through tumultuous times, with conflicts over sexual abuse of children over many years and the internal squabble between traditionalists and Neocatechumenal Way. CONTINUED
