APURON'S VICTIMS (SOME DID NOT SURVIVE)

Note: This post is future-dated in order to keep it at the top of the blog. For now that's the only way it can be done. 

This post will stay at the top of this blog until these men receive justice. (For Sonny, it will be posthumously). We also know the identity of the boy involved in the "threesome" with Fr. Antonio Cruz (deceased) and then-seminarian, Anthony S. Apuron as described by Mr. Ray DePlata (here, here, here, and here). The boy is dead.

WHAT REAL COURAGE LOOKS LIKE. YESTERDAY, OCTOBER 19, WAS HIS FEAST DAY.

Blessed Jerzy Popieluszko

Born to a farm family. Ordained on 28 May 1972 in the archdiocese of Warsaw, Poland. Noted and vocal anti-Communist preacher during the period of Communist rule in Poland. Worked closely with the anti-Communist Solidarity union movement. When martial law was declared in Poland to suppress opposition, the Church continued to work against the Communists, and Father Jerzy’s sermons were broadcast on Radio Free Europe. The secret police threatened and pressured him to stop, but he ignored them. They trumped up evidence and arrested him in 1983, but the Church hierarchy indicated that they would fight the charges; the false charges were dropped, Father Jerzy was released, continued his work, and was pardoned in a general amnesty of 22 July 1984. The Communists tried several times to kill him and make it look like an accident or anonymous attack, but they quit hiding their intentions, and the secret police simply kidnapped and killed Father Jerzy. Martyr.

SECRECY AND EXCOMMUNICATION: ATTORNEYS DISCUSS APURON'S CANONICAL TRIAL

"We understand Your Honor, that the people are sworn to secrecy, and if they expose it that they'll be excommunicated if they expose it." - Attorney John Terlaje, Counsel for Archdiocese of Agana to Judge Gatewood


The attorneys representing Archbishop Apuron and the Archdiocese of Agana discussed the outcome of Archbishop Apuron's canonical trial the other day in federal court.

Does Rome really think that secrecy and threats of excommunication are going to work or make things better here or anywhere else?  SMH.

THE DEEP STATE AT THE UMATUNA

This article in the Umatuna is dated October 16, 2017, which means it will appear in this weekend's print version. The picture shows Deacon Frank Tenorio front and center. 


However, Deacon Tenorio was removed several months ago from his position at Kamalen Karidat. Sadly, Deacon Tenorio tarnished the image of Kamalin Karidat when he appeared in the infamous Edivaldo-produced "fist pump" video:

The Puppeteers with their puppet! from Undercover Neo on Vimeo.

According to our information, Tenorio is NOT involved with Kamalen Karidat in any capacity so apparently someone at the Umatuna wanted to make a statement by using this picture. 

It's a bad move

Faith and confidence in our archdiocesan leadership had just turned a corner with the announcement of the closure of RMS, with improved donations from the faithful on the horizon. 

We hope, Fr. Mike Crisostomo, the new director of Kamalen Karidat, will soon clear this up. And we hope as well that someone will start looking into the "deep state" that still exists at the chancery, especially at the Umatuna.

TONY ON MY MIND...

Pope Francis concludes with an exhortation: to look at the “icons of today's fools,” adding, “there are foolish Christians and even foolish shepherds,” in this day. “Saint Augustine,” he recalled, “takes the stick to them, with gusto,” because “the folly of the shepherds hurts the flock.”

FEDERAL JUDGE TO APURON: JOIN MEDIATION PROCESS

Chief judge orders Apuron to join mediation process

U.S. District Court Chief Judge Frances Tydingco-Gatewood on Tuesday ordered Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron, or his attorney, to participate in premediation talks to try to settle more than 130 Guam clergy sex abuse cases.

APURON TO ALTAR BOY: "GET OVER IT"

Lawsuit: Apuron tells altar boy to 'pray, get over' sexual abuse by another priest

Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron allegedly told an altar boy that he will get over an evil situation if he prays about it, after the boy told Apuron that Father Raymond Cepeda sexually abused him from around 1992 to 1999, a lawsuit filed in federal court on Tuesday says.

REFLECTIONS ON THE CLERGY SEX ABUSE ON GUAM

(posted by frenchie)

As many of us had suspected, the numbers of clergy sexual abuse claims have been piling up in both the State and the Federal courts here on Guam. That does not even take into account the numbers of victims that contacted the Fund set-up by the Archdiocese, for people who need help, without wanting to go through litigation.

While I was praying and reflecting on these problems, and the events that lead to our current situation here on Guam, I could not but conclude that my old adage: "nothing happens in vacuum" was once again proving itself to be true.

As we have seen over the last three years, since the Junglewatch started unraveling the web of lies and deceit that surrounded us from all directions; many have tried to use, to explain, to excuse, to manipulate, to exploit, to divert the personal dramas of the victims of these sexual abuses.

We were able to clearly identify that the abuses did happened because of an environment which was conducive to that abuse and to its coverup.

As recent events have demonstrated, I shall show that these problems are not specific, nor limited to the Catholic Church, or to failings related to cultural shortcomings of the Chamorro Culture, as some would love to reduce it too, but rather that it did occur, because we failed to recognize the danger, and remained silent for too long.
Unfortunately our painful experience is another example of the truism that " whom ever stays silent, agrees".

EXCOMMUNICATED

Posted by Tim


The Kikos and Dianas have a fetish for the word "excommunicate," usually leveling it at us and specifically me. It's laughable, and continues to prove the ignorance inside the Neocatechumenal Way, however, in general, it is a discipline not well understood by most. This article by Cathy Caridi, J.C.L., in Canon Law Made Easy, is a good introduction. Have a good Sunday.

2017-18 BEGINNING OF THE YEAR CONVIVENCE

Posted by Chuck White
The secret schema for the Neocatechumenal Way’s 2017-18 Beginning of the Year Convivence just arrived in my inbox from a friend in Europe. This Convivence occurs annually at the sect’s headquarters in Porto San Giorgio, Italy, and then is successively repeated throughout the world until the youngest of the Way’s communities celebrate it. This year it was occurred from September 28 through October 1.

Kiko outdoes himself, I assure you. Take, for example, his spiel on page 12...Read more.


SO, WE ASK AGAIN....

..WHY isn't Apuron DEMANDING his "day in court" instead of DEMANDING that there NEVER be a "day in court."

"Apuron has been asking the court to dismiss the cases, stating the allegations are barred by a previous statute of limitations and they infringe upon rights guaranteed by the Organic Act of Guam." - Pacific Daily News, October 10, 2017 

The Diana's and the Trained Lawyer have been hollering about Apuron's right to "due process." Well here it is. And now they don't want it?

AS OF OCTOBER 7, 2017 - FEAST OF OUR LADY OF VICTORY!


By the way, today, October 7, is the "Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, formerly known as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory and Feast of the Holy Rosary, is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church, celebrated on 7 October, the anniversary of the decisive victory of the combined fleet of the Holy League of 1571 over the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Lepanto."




Also, by the way. I intend to retire this blog before it reaches NINE MILLION...or at least this long, sad, very ugly saga of Apuron's Archdiocese of Agana. Looking forward to the future. Courage. :)

LOL. IT GET'S MORE FUN EVERY DAY.

FAITH BETRAYED - GUAM'S DAY OF RECKONING


SOLUTION? EASY.

It's instructive to note that apparently The Diana thinks that we poor little lay people have and had more influence on local decisions by this Archbishop than her massively powerful friends in the Vatican, including one so powerful he is called "The Red Pope." 


Actually, it appears Filoni-Baloney actually helped Byrnes make his decision. Since Filoni-Baloney demanded that Byrnes keep the named institutions "housed" on the property, he decided not to argue with Filoni-Baloney and just close them. Solution? Easy. 


By the way Filoni-Baloney's interference in our affairs proves Dave Lujan's point about Vatican control of this diocese and easily exposes the Vatican to liability. 



RMS WAS NOT A FAILURE

Several comments have referred to RMS as a "failed" seminary. RMS was anything but a failure. In fact it was massively successful. 

  • It succeeded in ripping off millions from the local Catholic faithful under the guise of "a seminary for Guam," when it was really only "a seminary IN Guam," and of course it never was a "seminary." 
  • It succeeded in keeping local young men from being ordained to the "real" diocesan priesthood. 
  • It succeeded in stealing away our diocese's largest material asset, a mega-million dollar property, which it appropriated as its own exclusive seaside resort where visitors were forced to make "reservations."
  • It succeeded in ordaining seventeen presbyters and inserting them into our parishes and were well on the way to breaking them. 
  • It succeeded in destroying Fr. Paul Gofigan and Msgr. James Benavente and eventually every other non-neo priest.
  • It succeeded in ridding Guam of the Capuchins. 
  • It succeeded in covering for decades of sex abuse by covering for Apuron. 
  • It succeeded in keeping Archbishop Apuron Archbishop of Agana and seeing to either Adrian or David as his successor.
  • It succeeded in the absolute destruction of the diocesan priesthood on Guam.
  • It succeeded....

Wait, you say. Didn't "we" stop all that? Didn't "we" turn all that around? Didn't "we" save our diocese and our parishes? 

Well? Did you? Did you picket? Did you call in to talk radio? Did you write letters to the editor? Did you join the CCOG? Did you stand up somewhere, sometime, some place? Did you testify at the public hearings for the bill which lifted the statute of limitations? Did you put your face on TV? Did you risk anything? 

Just wondering. 

If you did not, no worries. There's still time. All of the above could come true tomorrow if Apuron is exonerated and restored. So where are you?

SO WHAT DID ARCHBISHOP BYRNES REALLY SAY? AND BYE, BYE RMS.


Latin class at RMS (you'll understand later)

FIRST HERE'S THE TRANSCRIPT (of this KUAM live feed)

What has led me to this decision is a very simple thing. The model of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary envisions a type of priesthood, and the producing of priests, that, frankly, while it works in places like Denver where there’s over a million Catholics or like Miami where there’s a couple million Catholics that have this type of seminary, it’s very sustainable. 

But in a small island like ours, and as I look back on the history of this, as I’ve paid attention personally to the Redemptoris Mater Seminary here, the main reason for closing the seminary here is that it is not a sustainable model for the archdiocese of Agana. 

I have worked with the review committee, followed up on the review committee that Archbishop Hon installed last year. I’ve consulted with our presbyteral council, with our finance council, the college of consultors, everybody I could consult with, the seminary senior officers, and this has been my determination.

The current semester that is underway will be the final semester of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary. The semester ends in the first couple of weeks in December. So certainly by the end of the year, the seminary will be officially closed. 

In that connection, in the coming weeks, I will establish a transition team to deal with important points of closing the seminary. 

RMS TO CLOSE

SO THIS JUST HAPPENED....

While the Kiko's are drunk with their fictitious "victory" of Archbishop Hon's supposed "demotion" for opposing their beloved Tony....ummm, this JUST happened!

THE RED POPE, THE GREAT PANIC, & STANDING UP TO THE VATICAN BULLIES

During my private meeting with Archbishop Hon in January of 2015 when he was sent here as a "visitator," it was immediately clear to me that Hon had been sent to Guam with two orders: 1) shut down the dissent, and 2) save the Neocatechumenal Way. 

At Hon's meeting with the clergy a couple days later, Hon left no doubt about his script: 1) shut down the dissent, and 2) save the Neocatechumenal Way. During the meeting, one member of the clergy texted: "We're SOL." 

Upon Hon's return to Guam in June of 2016 as Apostolic Administrator, it was immediately clear that Hon had been given the same marching orders: 1) shut down dissent, 2) save the Neocatechumenal Way, and now there was a third: discredit all claims of sex abuse against Apuron. 

Number 3 was made abundantly clear when Hon addressed the diocese at St. Anthony's parish at a special meeting on June 9. He completely avoided any mention of the allegations against Apuron, which at that point were from Roy Quintanilla, Doris Concepcion, and Walter Denton. Roland Sondia would come forward the following week.

At a prayer service a few days later, as if to mock Apuron's accusers, Hon specifically mentioned allegations against clergy which he said turned out to be unproven. And on Sunday, June 12, 2016, Hon made his intent to protect Apuron, and by extension, the neocats, visible, by publicly ignoring Walter Denton on the steps of the Cathedral before Mass. 

Archbishop Savio Hon Tai Fai greets Catholic Protesters in Guam from Undercover Neo on Vimeo.

(At about 00:35 Walter Denton can be seen telling the priest with Hon that he wants to talk to him.)

It was clear from the outset that Hon was Filoni's puppet and that he had been given a script he had to stick with. And the fact that Hon, an archbishop with no experience of ever running a diocese, was sent to fix the most troubled diocese in the world, was all the more confirmation that he was only here to run interference for Apuron and preserve the Neocatechumenal Way. 

But there was something Filoni and Hon didn't count on: FACTS. Facts, and people willing to stand up to the Vatican bullies. 

In August of 2016, Hon was finally cornered with those facts by certain lay people at a meeting with the presbyteral council. Hon was cornered. He had no alternative but to admit that Apuron and the neocat hierarchy had conspired against the faithful of the Archdiocese of Agana and had covered the conspiracy with the most remarkable lies - the same lies that recently appeared in the dutiful groveling of a fourth rate Italian version of the Enquirer which still reports Elvis sightings. 

But Hon's real downfall came when he publicly mocked the bill lifting the statute of limitations. Initially the bill only targeted individuals, not institutions. However, Hon's mockery of the effort led to an angry public hearing and the modification of the bill to hold institutions accountable - since it became evident that doing so would be the only thing which might make Hon finally cast off his Filoni-provided script and face the truth about Apuron and the Gennarini agenda.

Upon the unanimous passage of the bill, Hon immediately sought to appease us by running to Rome to ask for Apuron's resignation.


Full letter

But now that put him directly in the crosshairs of Kiko Arguello and Filoni Baloney. Arguello and Filoni flew into action and got Hon out of Guam PRONTO! - replacing him with a bishop from Detroit who admittedly had no prior knowledge of Guam's problems. 

Upon Byrnes' assignment, Filoni ordered Gennarini to meet with Byrnes before actually going to Guam. I don't know if Gennarini ever got to him, but I know there were several attempts. The assignment of Byrnes was another red flag. Why assign a bishop who knows nothing of Guam to the most troubled diocese in the world? It was easy to see why: 1) the people of Guam historically have respect for "American" authorities, and 2) Filoni and Gennarini saw Byrnes as malleable. 

Byrnes' pastoral and more so his "American" image was meant to disarm us while Filoni and Gennarini would work on him behind the scenes. However, Byrnes soon ran into the same wall called FACTS that Hon ultimately ran into, and it wasn't too long before Byrnes publicly declared Apuron a "DISASTER."




So now Byrnes is in Filoni and Kiko's crosshairs. However, Byrnes is not in the same position as Hon who is an employee of the Curia and only appointed temporarily. Byrnes is a coadjutor bishop with full rights of succession to the episcopal chair of this diocese once it is declared "vacant."

In short, Byrnes is not under Filoni's authority or control. To remove him would require a canonical process similar to Apuron's. Of course, the pope can still act unilaterally, albeit in contradiction to canon law, and who knows, maybe Byrnes would much rather go back to Detroit. (Who could blame him.) 

All of this intrusion by Filoni, Kiko, and Gennarini, including the recent so-called "demotion" of Hon to nuncio to Greece, is a loud declaration that Apuron is NOT INNOCENT. For if he was, it would have simply been declared and there would not be the very obvious great panic to deflect, deny, discredit and destroy - which is the neocat calling card. 

Maybe the Red Pope, (aka Filoni) should spend some time in the Sistine chapel staring at the back wall.
