TWO MILESTONES

The most traffic ever over the last 3 days: 1000 hits per day, twice the normal. (Thanks, June. Your post received the most hits. Looking forward to more phone calls like yours.)

And total page views just passed my other blog at www.themassneverends.com. However, I've had the other blog since 2006. I've only been using Jungle Watch since July of this year (though I've posted some older stories on it since).

  1. I was astounded to learn the extent to which the Archbishop was under the control of the Neos! It was one thing to deal with the fact that he was doing all in his power to ensure that as many parishes as possible start at least one Neo community. But to read that he has signed over the Redemptoris Mater Seminary to them, after having dismissed the Archdiocesan Finance Council when they refused to rubber-stamp his decision, was shocking. To continue to accept donations from people who believed that they were supporting a seminary that belonging to the Archdiocese is so wrong!!! He may be the Archbishop but he needs to be held accountable. I honestly believe that his decision to maintain the ILLUSION that the RMS is a seminary that belongs to the Archdiocese as a means to collect more money from the Faithful is deceitful, possibly even fraudulent!

  2. Tim, many of us appreciate that you keep us up-to-date on the ordeal Fr. Paul Gofigan is going through. Many of us are afraid of speaking out our thoughts and feelings openly. I hope you pass on to him the deeply caring comments we write. I think many of us also appreciate knowing the truth about the neo-catechumenate movement. Myself I think if the movement was as great as their members think it is they would not have to force it on others so aggressively.

  3. The seminary property has not yet been signed over to the Neo corporation. The objection of the Finance Council, the "firing" of the 4 of the 5 members (the only one not fired was the Vicar General), the reporting of the matter to the Papal Nuncio, and the subsequent audit of the Archdiocese ordered by Rome, probably has put the transfer on hold, at least for now.

  4. Now might be the time to suggest to people to prayerfully consider their contributions to the Church in the light of the malfeasance we are witnessing. Perhaps we should steer some of our monetary gifts to alternative apostolates and activities.

  5. Please can someone clarify......If the men studying at RMS are considered part of our Archdiocese yet at the same time missionaries, who is actually in authority to send these men to various parts of the world to spread the Good News? Is it the Bishop, or Father Pius Summit? Why send seminarians to Guam? Why not send them to remote countries that are in need of evangelization, the way San Vitores came to us to preach Good News?

    I hate to say this, but I do not understand their homilies. They look at their watches to make sure they are covering the time allowed to preach. They preach in circles not knowing when to land the plane.

  6. How was the Seminary obtained in the first place? Am I being selfish by only thinking of our church here on island? Should I be looking at the Universal Church, and how I can be of help to that mission?

  7. I am going to answer your question in a post. Look for it.

  8. Correct me if I am wrong. The seminary was built with the understanding that the Redemptoris in New Jersey was to pay the loan then backed out. The loan fell on the hands of the archdiocese. People within the Neo put their homes up for mortgages to help defray the cost.
