Make no mistake. This is a rally in support of Msgr. James Benavente and a public protest against Archbishop Apuron. It is only because of the class and integrity of Msgr. James, the love he bears our church, and the respect he still has for the office of the bishop, despite his cruel and unjust treatment by the man who currently occupies that office, that it has been toned down to the level of a more general prayer service for the good of our church.
To the press: Catholics do not normally gather on the steps of their church to pray. They go inside. There is a reason they are standing outside the church. It is no longer theirs. That's the story. The real one.
