DEAR PDN, YOU'RE WELCOME :)

Posted by Tim

On August 22, I submitted the following "letter to the editor" to the PDN.
In his August 19 statement, Archbishop Hon accused Archbishop Apuron of defying a papal order to return the mega-million dollar “seminary property” to the Archdiocese of Agana.

While Apuron is probably guilty of committing an ecclesial crime by alienating the property without the requisite approval of the Holy See, the truth is he did not return the property because he could not.

On November 22, 2011, Apuron recorded a document at the Department of Land Management called “Declaration of Deed Restriction.” Despite its innocuous name, the document conveyed title to the mega-million dollar Yona property to the Neocatechumenal Way-controlled Redemptoris Mater Seminary.

This was confirmed by the Concerned Catholics of Guam in the Legal Opinion by Guam real estate attorney Jaques Bronze who wrote: “The Declaration…operates to transfer a present interest and is an absolute conveyance in fee simple of the subject real property…”

Hon was given this exact information during his January 2015 visit, both by the CCOG and by former archdiocesan finance council president, Richard Untalan, who was fired by Apuron for his opposition to the conveyance.

On August 11, 2016, it was explained to him again by the same Richard Untalan, joined by Attorney Robert Klitzkie, at a joint meeting with Hon and the presbyteral council.

At the meeting Untalan and Klitzkie spelled out how the title had been conveyed by Apuron to RMS in 2011, and how it could only be returned through a similar instrument of conveyance.

RMS is a Guam corporation, incorporated separately from the Archdiocese of Agana, and other than one vote on the Board of Directors, its decisions are not subject to the Archbishop of Agana.

In order for the Declaration to be “rescinded and annulled,” as the pope is said to have required, the board must first pass a resolution to convey title back to the archdiocese, and then compose, authorize, and record the conveyance.

But beyond the misfeasance of church officials, lies an even graver concern about the potential malfeasance of some Government of Guam officials.

To assist Apuron in his mega-million dollar cover up, Msgr. David C. Quitugua published a copy of a bogus certificate of title last November 29 in the archdiocesan newspaper.

The bogus certificate was acquired by the executive vice president of a local title company who is a member of the Neocatechumenal Way. The certificate was personally paid for by the same executive and Attorney Jacqueline T. Terlaje who is not only a member of the “Way,” but heads up Apuron’s neocatechumenal community.

The bogus certificate was issued by the Deputy Registrar of Titles, who, even after doing an abstract of title which included the Declaration only days before, released the certificate minus the Declaration, which as already noted, conveyed title to RMS.

After Attorney Robert Klitzkie brought this to the attention of the Director of Land Management, Klitzkie was advised that per the Attorney General’s counsel, the law required the Director to petition the court to correct the title.

The end was in sight. The property had been transferred to RMS in 2011 to protect it from a threat precipitated by Vice-Speaker Cruz’ 2011 attempt to lift the statute of limitations on sex crimes against minors. And as we now know, Apuron had good reason to be worried.

Subjecting the title issue to the court would expose the truth about Apuron’s big give-away and ultimately his secret reasons for doing so. We only needed the government to do its job. But then all went dark.

Two months later, we learned that the Attorney General reneged on her previous counsel and permitted a deal to be “worked out” with Attorney Jacqueline T. Terlaje. The issue never went to court and the truth remained safely hidden.

But then came May 17, and the first of Apuron’s ghosts from the 1970’s appeared in the flesh to call him to account.

RICHARD WON'T HESITATE TO SUE HIS ASS

In today's PDN story, Pius the Samnut says something worth noting: 

“Besides, these former finance officers of the Archdiocese are all my friends, some of them very dear, and brothers in Jesus Christ and I do not feel comfortable in wrangling and arguing publicly with them,” Sammut said.

Pius has had no problem "wrangling and arguing publicly" with anyone else over the last 3 years. What's different about "these former finance officers" who are "very dear, and brothers in Jesus Christ." 

LOL.

Don't worry, we're here to wade through the muck, shovel the manure and endure the stench so you don't have to.  Pius and his NCW cohorts, produce so much, you can say it "fuels" this website.  Ha!

Before the end of  the day of that very informative expose by the former Archdiocese Finance Council (AFC), Pius, through his herald, "Diana," was already beginning to churn the crap mill and began to excrete enough nuggets to keep a sewage worker employed through retirement.

WHO WILL BE THE PASTOR OF THE AGANA CATHEDRAL AND WHY THE FIGHT GOES ON

Posted by Tim

At the root of Msgr. James' Canon Law case is whether or not he, as rector of the Cathedral, was also in fact the pastor of the Agana Cathedral parish. If he was, then he has canonical rights that were violated by his abrupt removal by Apuron and the evil step-sisters (David and Adrian). 

HELP US DEFROCK APURON THIS SUNDAY--9 AM CATHEDRAL

Posted by Bob
To laicize or defrock, that is the question.  For months Catholics asked that Archbishop Anthony Apuron resign. Then they asked that Archbishop Apuron be removed. When Roy, Doris, Walter and Roland came forward  and Apuron publicly trashed Roy and Doris the signs changed to:

THROW THE BUMS OUT!

In response to the CCOG criticism that RMS only has 3 "permanent" professors for 7 listed departments, Pius the Samnut told KUAM today:

"Eight permanent professors and five adjunct professors are teaching at the Institute. In addition, three priests, former students of the Institute, Fathers Miguel Angel, Julio Caesar and Edivaldo have already acquired the Licentiate in Theology at the Lateran University in Rome or at the Lugano University in Switzerland; Father Fabio is studying to acquire the licentiate; they will continue their studies toward their Masters and eventually make part of the permanent faculty of the Institute."

CAN YOU SMELL THE LOVE?

(Posted by Glaucon Jr)



Ever since I began writing posts dealing with the Neocatechumenal Way, I have in faith and in charity been compelling to become immersed in their theology. I knew there was grave error present if only from the de facto liturgical schism on Guam as well as the shockingly prideful statements of the superiority of NCW member faith over “traditional Catholics” whom they regard as quasi-Catholics, half-pagan and wholly immature in everything Christ.

So we had to get into the nitty-gritty, and man, this is nasty, pungent stuff!

IS RMS A SEMINARY FOR GUAM? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

IN THE NEWS

Posted by Chuck White

In today's Guam Daily Post, page 7:

DECREE OF REMOVAL OF FR. PIUS SAMMUT.

Posted by Webster.

One day before Apuron issued his Declaration to Archbishop Hon and the media, Fr. Pius made an identical statement to the media. The press release made by Fr. Pius as Rector of the Neo RMS is acutely embarrassing to the current leadership of the Catholic Church in Guam. It defies our Apostolic Administrator, Archbishop Hon, and he was even smug, arrogant, and condescending about it.  

Pius has basically told our Apostolic Administrator, our clergy and religious, and the rest of Guam's Catholics, to shove it where the sun don't shine. He tells Archbishop Hon he is wrong about the property transfer to the RMS. He had a hand in the firing of the former AFC members. He had Apuron sign the deed giving the property away to the Neo RMS for free.

Pius is smug because he knows that the NEO now owns and controls the most valuable piece of property that this archdiocese has ever owned. He's in the driver's seat. And he is not worried about Apuron because he has Apuron in his pocket. Who else can immediately get Apuron to issue a Declaration that backs up the statements and position that Pius issued the day before? I mean, Apuron's whereabouts is unknown to Archbishop Hon, but Pius can get Apuron to issue a declaration within 24 hours of his? Imagine that! That is power and control indeed.

Think about it. Apuron is backing up Pius, not the other way around. Just who is in control here? Pius of course.

Fr. Pius must be immediately removed as Rector of the RMS, sent back to his order in Malta, and ban from taking part in any Catholic activity in Guam.  The Presbyteral Council must pass a resolution to that effect, and Archbishop Hon must issue a Decree of Removal.

We need to take back our Church in Guam from the likes of Pius and his putrid cronies.

Pius has indeed become putrid to Guam's Catholics.

Archbishop Hon: Are you getting this?

SEDE VACANTE! SEDE VACANTE! SEDE VACANTE!

Posted by Webster.

The Declaration of Apuron is in itself an act of defiance against the Holy See. It defies the Pope through his representative Archbishop Savio Hon, the Apostolic Administrator. It subverts and undermines the authority of the Holy See. It is total disobedience.

This is a grave and serious matter. It cannot be ignored. This is grounds for the immediate removal of Apuron as archbishop of the Archdiocese of Agana.

It is time that the Episcopal See of the Archdiocese of Agana enter a period of SEDE VACANTE.

SEDE VACANTE! SEDE VACANTE! SEDE VACANTE!

THE PRIMARY...AND A WARNING

Posted by Tim Rohr

While the pay raise issue probably figured into part of these results, no doubt, the bill permanently lifting the statute of limitations on sex crimes against minors appears to have played a part as well. Senator Frank Blas introduced the bill and Senator Frank Aguon, Jr. shepherded it through his committee, holding a total of three public hearings. Both figured at the top of their respective heaps. 

Looking at the incumbent Democrats from the bottom, Respicio didn't bother to show up for any of the hearings. Won Pat appeared visibly critical of Bob Klitzkie's public testimony, and Barnes was a no show. The same seems to hold for the Republican side. Of the incumbents, McCreadie was not present at any of the hearings and was absent for the vote to report the bill out of committee. The rest of the incumbent republicans were present for at least one of the hearings. 


HIGH NOON FOR FOR ARCHBISHOP HON

“High Noon (1952) [starring Gary Cooper] is possibly the all-time best Western film ever made - a successful box-office production by Stanley Kramer and director Fred Zinnemann (who also directed From Here to Eternity (1953) and A Man For All Seasons (1966)). The Western genre was employed to tell an uncharacteristic social problem tale about civic responsibility, without much of the typical frontier violence, panoramic landscapes, or tribes of marauding Indians.” AMC Filmsite
                                     My plot summary

In a territory a man was sent in to clean up a really bad situation. He does and sends the really bad dude away. Just as he’s about to begin living happily-ever-after news breaks that the really bad dude has been let out and will arrive at high noon.  The man is faced with a choice. He can face down the really bad dude and in what amounts to a winner-take-all battle or move on and leave his honor behind.
