MSGR. JAMES BENAVENTE REMOVED AS RECTOR OF CATHEDRAL BASILICA

Note: a letter from Msgr. James has been added to the bottom of this post.
At 9:17 PM tonight, KUAM posted a story about the removal of Msgr. James Benavente as rector of the Cathedral. He was also removed from all his other ministries and archdiocesan duties. 

I just learned through another source that yesterday Archbishop Apuron had accused Msgr. James of financial mismanagement. Msgr. James asked for a list of the charges and asked for time to clear his name. The Archbishop agreed. 

However, this morning, Msgr. David C. Quitugua, the Vicar General, and Fr. Adrian Cristobal, Chancellor, delivered a letter to Msgr. James removing him from his position as rector of the Cathedral and his other duties. 


It appears that Apuron needs a scapegoat. In 2012, after Apuron tried to give away the Old Accion Hotel property to the Neocatechumenal Way and was blocked by the finance council of which Msgr. James was a member, Apuron received a note from Rome directing an audit on the archdiocese. 

The archdiocese' finances are in such a mess that Deacon Dominic Kim was heard to say at the recent meeting with the Apostolic Delegate that the archdiocese's finances were "in-audit-able". And even though the projects overseen by Msgr. James were given a clean bill of health by the Vatican-ordered audit, Apuron is blaming Msgr. James for the archdiocese's financial woes. 

But of course this is all a big lie. Apuron is continuing his war against the non-neo priests, which is exactly what I predicted he would do after he agreed to "build bridges" at the recent meeting with the Apostolic Delegate. 

Oh, and don't forget Apuron's insane jealousy of Msgr. James' close friendship with Cardinal Tagle.

People, it is now time to come out of the shadows. We must act now. Send me an email at JungleWatch.info@gmail.com if you wish to join me in a plan of action. We will meet soon. Rome will soon hear Guam groan!

Archbishop, stay tuned. We will all soon hear your nasty speech from Tagaytay.

The floor of hell, Apuron. The floor of hell.

      My My...our Archbishop certainly has an odd way of building bridges!
      Dear Nuncio - we respect your attempt to allow the Archbishop to make things right. What you did not know was the viciousness that he is capable of. We know because we have lived under this reign of terror for 30 years. All the while praying, hoping and believing things would get better. But just over a year ago our Archbishop woke the sleeping dog.
      We have been pleading and crying for intervention from Rome. We awaited your visit with great hope. We thank you for coming to see for yourself the real situation we have here on Guam. I respect the fact that you did not dress down the Archbishop in front of our clergy or others. But you now know for yourself that the three on the Hill are capable of anything and everything.
      Rome now needs to act, and they need to act quickly, because the people have now had enough. This move against Monsignor James will enrage many many people, and we will not stop until we know Rome is ready to make a change.
      You have seen, you have waited for our Archbishop to solve the problems, and now you see his solution.
      For the sake of our Church, we implore you to act now before we act.
      May God bless you in your swiftness.

    3. This is enough, already. Something really, really bad is going to happen. Can't be good outcome for a long time now. How can these priests of NEO ever make thier home here for life after this crisis. Let is be a lesson to the world. There is Kiko on the right waving his arms faster and faster. Look at him. He's been there for months and we have been lacking in COURAGE.

    7. I believe he is the only rich priest that still alive on Guam with a large net worth, I believe they should do an audit on the Arch Bishop Apuron. People have the right to choose their religion, and no one should have to be force to follow. Like they say, Christ is not sleeping and Karma has no religion.

    8. I thought that all the good of our church for our people and our Lord is to bring our church to one!!! We're to bring the lost to the found and have them understand what our Catholic is all about!!! I've always been taught that, WE'RE THE CHURCH, WE'RE GOD'S PEOPLE, WE'RE FAMILY not divide US into anything other than ONE!!! Why are we to side with others when we're supposed to be just ONE not TWO!!!! Praying hard for all the richness in materialistic items/monies/jealousy/EVIL to end for those who are rich in all those and let the poor continue to be rich in LOVING/KINDNESS/FORGIVING!!!

  7. Nice timing, Archbishop! Just right after he celebrated his 20th jubilee! Trust it is the front page of the Umatuna si Yu'os, this week! With all due respect, you are losing the respect of your people, the flock you were called to shepherd and most of all, your priests! If you truly are doing things in the best interest of the archdiocese, RESIGN! As your spiritual children, we implore you to do so!

  21. Your excellency Archbishop Apuron, you are our shepherd and are leading your sheep astray with the NCW! The Church Militant, the sheep you call "evil" are concerned for all souls including yours. My wife and I will continue to pray for all neos that have been deceived, but we will stand firm against this "kiko cult" that has invaded Guam. As "soldiers for Christ" we must defend our church though prayer, fasting and charity. Charity demands that the "truth" be defended and the error exposed and expunged. There can be only ONE TRUTH, ONE CHURCH and ONE POPE.
    Rome will not send the NEO packing, that's your bridge to dismantle before mending others.

  24. The parallels with how he fired Fr. Paul Gofigan is striking. Both are local non-Neo priests. Both are very popular and devoted priests. Both are charismatic. Both were ambushed. Both were called in and were read the litany of baseless and false charges. Both were fired without notice and due process. Apuron was not pastoral in both cases. Paul and James were favorites to be next bishop. AND...both stood in the way of the BIG THREE(Anthony, David, and Adrian) to mold Guam in the image of the Neo.

Shame on them for acting like spoiled divas who think that the church is their Barbie Dream house when they can move things at will just because it's what they want. They need to look in the mirror and deep into their compromised souls and realize that they will NEVER be loved and admired and respected the way priests like Monsignor James and Father Paul Gofigan. Shame on them. Apuron is a lost cause because he had been doing these kinds of things since he was a young priest. But I knew Adrian when he was at FD. I would have never believed that he would sell his soul to the devil.

It was an excruciating 500 years since that SanVitoris had taken hold of our “precious”, very soon my little one very soon the day of reckoning will be upon them and they will acquiesce through our subtle ingress we’ve made with our dear friends up in “the Hill”….hahahahahahahahaahaaha!

    Uncle Screw Tape: Be still Wormwood, be still, lest your premature glee disappoints you and your brothers below. We will now see the fruit of your efforts these last 30 years, when you hear the words of HIM who is the PRIZE! You can then rejoice the victory that you so persue! But be still little one be still, our brother TIME has set his hands in motion and promised not fail us.
    Wormwood: Yes Uncle...hehehe...we've had quite a year I must say! and yes! HIM who is THE PRIZE will be our greatest trophy, Ohh the heart of men are so delicate and naive with a little pride, arrogance and a kiss of persuasion.

  31. Who did the investigation on Msgr Benavente. Was it the Triple Tyrant? They bungled up the Wadeson investigation and it lasted more than 14 years, yet they were not able to afford Msgr James the courtesy to clear his name. AAA were you coerced by Pius the one eyed black jack.

    AAA I guess your boss Pius is here for you to rely on for guidance and comfort. Maybe you should move your ministry and the 500 neocats to Iraq so you can save the Arabs from ISIS. We the other 100,000 Catholics don't want you here to tell us that our culture is our problem. AAA is an island boy who grew up with our culture. AAA + culture = problem. Resign AAA and the problem will be automatically solved. That goes for the rest of the Triple Tyrants.

    1. Point of Clarification to Anonymous (July 27, 2014 at 1:17 AM): The quote you provided — "Folks he (TIM ROHR) just made a bold letter post to Archbishop burn in hell 3X. Msgr. James is out and believe me not obeying also." — was not made by "Diana," but by an Anonymous person who submitted the comment on July 26, 2014 at 11:06 PM.

      Yes, "Diana" seems to be obsessed with the topic of "obedience" and constantly points out how (1) being "obedient" brings harmony; (2) Fr. Paul was not "obedient" when he was told to open his parish to the NCW; and (3) the "rogue priest" (AKA "Judas Iscariot") was not "obedient" when he provided information about the secret meetings with the Nuncio to the "owner of the jungle," among others. I'm pretty certain that "Diana" considers the unwillingness of Msgr. James Benavente to rubber stamp Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron's plan to transfer RMS to the NCW as not being "obedient" to the Archbishop who, in her words, has been handpicked by God.

      I'm not sure how "Diana," who claims to be a young woman in her twenties and a co-responsible in the NCW after having walked for eight years, deems "herself" qualified to sit in judgment, but I believe we will soon hear how those who dared to speak out at the "secret" clergy meeting — Msgr. David I. A. Quitugua (the elder), Fr. Michael Crisostomo, Fr. Efren Adversario, Fr. Richard Kidd, Deacon Steve Martinez and Deacon Bill Hagen — have not been "obedient" as well. It's just a matter of time.

      In closing, I'm not sure which "bold letter post to Archbishop burn in hell 3X" the person in "Diana's" blog was referring to … Unless he/she misread (and miscounted) "The floor of hell, Apuron. The floor of hell." — a reference to the words of St. Athanasius/St. John Chrysostom, "The floor of hell is covered with the skulls of bishops." If that is the "bold letter post" to which the commenter referred, it's par for the course where "Diana" and "her" ilk are concerned.

  46. Does anyone have any background as to when the relationship between the Archbishop and Msgr. James began going sour? I was always under the impression that Msgr. James was a rising star in the Archdiocese. After all, it was the Archbishop who nominated Fr. James to become a Msgr. at such a young age. It's my understanding that Pope Francis is not even bestowing such titles on young priests at this time because he doesn't want to promote clericalism.

  51. I am absolutely disgusted by the bullying tactics of the Archbishop. I too have been a victim of bullying by an organization - this administration - and I know all too well what it feels like to be treated as Msgr. James is now being treated. He is a good man. The Archbishop has gone too far (of course I think that every time he does something but this time he is not even pretending to show that this is not a form of retaliation). I knew quite some time ago that the Father Paul issues was because he refused to force neo on his parish and I heard Father Patrick Garcia was next because Yigo is a big parish and the Archbishop wants the Neo forced in all parishes because they are required to tithe which means more money for the archbishop. I do not know the REAL reasons behind his latest attack on Msgr. James but I will wait for Jungle Watch to expose it. The Church on Guam is imploding and it makes regular Catholics like me so depressed. I still have my faith but my zeal for our archdiocese is no longer there. I won't sign my name yet but if you coordinate an event or protest or something count me in.

  53. My family and I are regulars at the 9:30 mass at the Cathedral, for reasons that have nothing to do with the fact that that's the Archbishop's mass. However, beginning today, we will no longer be attending that mass, for reasons that have EVERYTHING to do with the Archbishop. I hope (and suspect) that once more people get wind of this latest hatchet job of the Archbishop's (as the news is still kind of fresh), more and more 9:30 regulars, like us, may do the same. The scary thing about the concentration of power and wealth in the hands of the few -- and in the case of our loal church, in the hands of ONE man, guided by weak clergy and powerful laypersons -- is that that the more they get, the more they think they are owed. But to all such leaders out there, a word of caution: NEVER underestimate the power of a People Movement. My family and I stand ready to do whatever we must to ensure that this power does not continue unchecked, and that this "leader" (in Chamorro, I would call him dungi' (or coward)) will come to realize that he can't treat his flock and his fellow shepherds this way.

  54. Many people thought Monsignor James would become the new Bishop for Guam. He sure was on his way in that direction. This attack on him is Neo related and inspired by Satan to defeat our Church! God Bless everyone in our Church and help us at this time of need.

  55. Don't come to Our Lady of Peace and Safe Journey in Chalan Pago, it has been neo from the very beginning just like Barrigada and Agana, I am looking for a Catholic Parish near my home, and it will be either San Juan Bautista in Ordot, Santa Teresita in Mangilao, in the meantime I go to the Friary because of the Latin Mass that I loveso much from the time I was an altar server back in the late 40s through 1958 when I enlisted into the US Army. I have been the confirmation teacher since 1997 and if the Lord is wills it I wil be there until he calls me to rest, but I will not attend Mass there unless I am withmy students on special days. I love this parish but it seems different since the neos tok over, I don't feel the "Presence" when I go there.

    1. Jesus, God bless you. Please allow me to clarify a little. The Agana Cathedral-Basilica has never had a Neo rector and has served as sanctuary for those escaping the Neocats. Now that Msgr. James has been illegally fired, without due process and without merit, things might change for the worse. Expect AAA to appoint a Neo rector and for everything at the Cathedral-Basilica to go south quickly.

  60. Hmm....Food for thought!!!


    The Canon law of the Catholic Church explicitly mentions as special cases three offices of rectors:
    rectors of seminaries (c. 239 & c. 833 #6)
    rectors of churches that do not belong to a parish, a chapter of canons, or a religious order (c. 556 & 553)
    rectors of Catholic universities (c. 443 §3 #3 & c. 833 #7)

    However, these are not the only officials who exercise their functions using the title of rector. Since the term rector refers to the function of the particular office, a number of officials are not referred to as rectors even though they are rectors in actual practice. The diocesan bishop, for instance, is himself a rector, since he presides over both an ecclesiastical organization (the diocese) and an ecclesiastical building (his cathedral). In many dioceses, the bishop delegates the day-to-day operation of the cathedral to a priest, who is often incorrectly called a rector but whose specific title is plebanus or "people's pastor", especially if the cathedral operates as a parish church. Therefore, because a priest is designated head of a cathedral parish, he cannot be both rector and pastor, as a rector cannot canonically hold title over a parish (c.556). As a further example, the pastor of a parish (parochus in Latin) is pastor (not rector) over both his parish and the parish church. Finally, a president of a Catholic university is rector over the university and, if a priest, often the rector of any church that the university may operate, on the basis that it is not a canonical establishment of a parish (c. 557 §3).

  64. Tony Apuron seems to be burning his bridges behind him, rather than rebuilding them. It does not make sense until you realize that he, and especially his NEO-COHORTS DO NOT PLAN TO STAY ON GUAM indefinitely!

    That is why they are removing non-neo priests from positions of authority in the parishes to be replaced by neo-castrated sheep who will allow Apuron, or more specifically Apuron's handlers, to do as they wish with the parish's finances and fixed assets without question! Once they have transferred the funds and/or the assets of each parish, they will disappear!

    Perhaps, while waiting for independently audited financial statements from the Archdiocese of Agana, we should be asking each of our parishes to make an accounting also and setting up safeguards to protect its assets.

    Stay alert, people! We are under attack from within!!

  73. Tim, was this a result of asking the Archbishop for financial statements and he asked for the Cathedral's accounting revenue and expenses? Who runs the cemetery and gift shop?

    1. No. This is a result of Msgr. James simply being a superior person in every way compared to His Highness Apuron. It's the same with Fr. Paul. Both are excellent priests, make friends easily, and are much admired and loved. Apuron has to go off to Europe and South America and offer foreigners goodies in order to find someone to love him...or at least pretend to. Msgr. James has been one of the quietest, most obedient, and most servant-like of priests, especially when it comes to serving the Archbishop. However, he's not a neo-kiss ass and that's what Apuron wants. So death to all who won't kiss it.

      But it's also because Apuron thinks that Msgr. James is my informant. He’s not. I’m not stupid like the ding-dongs in the chancery, and neither is Msgr. James. Because of my involvement with the gift shop at the cathedral it would be too easy to link Msgr. to me, so I specifically distanced myself from him. I even relinquished my position as the manager of the store many months ago because I knew that Apuron would come after me through Msgr. James.

      Because Apuron is not man enough to engage legitimate criticism he simply bullies and terrorizes in the name of his episcopal hat. However, this is exactly what St. John Crysostom was referring to when he said “The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishop.” It is the fate of bishops who bully and terrorize in the name of the church.

But now that the chancery's own finances are so messed up that according to Deacon Kim" the finance officer, they are "in-audit-able", they have to put those money making entities back within the control of their greedy little mitts so they can keep the Kiko factory going.

  76. This might seem totally irrelevant, but it speaks somewhat to the character of at the time, Father Anthony Apuron, when he was assigned to Mt. Carmel Church. He was not only jealous of the other pastoral staff that were much loved by the community, he was often vindictive towards them. This was a person who really did not have the Lord in his heart. He was quite vain and more interested in getting hair permanents to curl his his straight hair than to humbly minister to the parish. Our community was so happy when he left. Now Archbishop, he is even more corrupt and dishonest and yet he is accusing Monsignor Benavente of wrongdoings that he himself perpetrated. Apuron is no man of God, but a man of Satan.

    4. He tried to close Mount Carmel School until the people led by a good man saved it. He then supposedly changed his mind because no money came out of his, I mean the diocese' s pocket. He planted someone to secretly undermine the efforts of those who wanted the school to succeed until she was caught and replaced. It is now an award winning school no thanks to a greedy archbishop. Apuron is the epitome of everything bad, broken, dishonest, and politically corrupt in our diocese. And shame on him/them for putting a pedophile priest among our children. Adrian Cristobal claims they were just allegations. Try justifying that to someone whose life was changed and whose spirit was murdered by a sexual abuser. Shame on them for making excuses about this criminal priest and even more so for passing him on to San Francisco instead of removing him from the church altogether.

His actions causes problems and his actions could be solutions, if he would just make wise decisions. After reading this even now I am confused....LOL! I hope you understand what I am trying say. Instead of trying to heal, he prefers to hurt. Makes me wonder why he still puts "OFM Cap." at the end of his name? It must just be meaningless letters because he doesn't seem to remember the meaning. St.Francis of Assisi must really be disappointed. Instead of rebuilding the church as St.Francis was instructed to do by the Lord, he is set on destroying it or remolding it into what he wants it to be. He needs to remember that a house divided cannot stand on it's own...or something like that. I just realized that his elevation to auxillary bishop was not on merit, but a reward....and maybe that's when the local church began to crumble. Instead of the Vatican choosing a new archbishop, they probably thought it was easier to elevate him than review other candidates. He needs to remember that one cannot serve two masters at the same time....look what happens. Regarding the finances of the Archdiocese....something is amiss...when one becomes defensive about such things, one is usually hiding something.

I have always kissed his ring as he so rightfully demands and he doesn't really say anything back. He is too busy looking mighty and powerful and important. I have never met a man of the cloth that is so out of touch with his flock. When I look at our Pope and how kind and open and compassionate and caring he is it saddens me that we are stuck with such a rude archbishop who makes you feel like he is so much better than you. Instead of walking away inspired by meeting him you walk away feeling like he is looking down on you. Msgr. Benavente would have made an amazing Archbishop who is charismatic, compassionate and so down to earth. This Archbishop makes me sick.

Therefore, you Anthony should get the axe. Stop hiding and blaming everybody under you for your responsibilities. Resign now and let someone who really cares for the flock run the church. Someone with a character like the Pope who is caring, Like Monsignor James who is charismatic or Father Paul who is forgiving. You have none of these qualities. I don't know how you became Archbishop you lack these qualities. You hide behind the chancery and you don't talk to your flock. You lack the qualities of being even a priest. I see at mass but you run out the back door after mass. I have seen parishioners ask for you and you are running out the door as if to avoid these parishioners. They are coming to ask either for confession, for guidance or just to say hi and kiss your ring. it's like you are scared of us. You don't know us and I don't know you, the only thing I know about you is that you sometimes say mass. After all this events, I am starting to see the kind of character you have and it is ugly. How many friends do you have? Are you a hermit? Don't you care for the church, the parishioners and me. It seems like you only care for the RMS and the way.

The Archbishop, in case he has forgotten, is the Pastor of Agana, and therefore, any "mismanagement" and all responsibility falls upon his shoulders.
      As for Adrian - "financial mismanagement?" Coming from a man who couldn't even handle the smallest parish on the island? Who never issued a financial report to the parishioners? The same with David. You two are the greediest, most corrupt "clergy" this island has ever witnessed, and all for the love of power! Your jealousy of Msgr. James and everything he has done has rotted your bones. You will never match up to him. NO ONE in this Archdiocese can do what Msgr. James can. He worked so hard to rebuild the Cathedral, the museum, the cemetery - all with the permission of the Archbishop and the finance council, and you accuse him of "financial mismanagement"? and pull the rug from under his feet.
      So where is this accusation coming from? It is all a LIE!!!!!! Tony, Adrian, and David are all good at this. Lying about Wadeson, lying about Fr. Paul, and now lying about Msgr. James. Let's not forget the lie to Aaron Quitugua. What kind of men would lie and cheat and deceive the people GOD entrusted to them? Only evil men who do not have the love of God in their hearts. Instead they choose to be "in persona Satan!" Only the devil himself would refuse young men to enter a seminary; only Satan himself would treat God's priests the way this Archbishop and his minions do; only Satan would glory in the mistreatment and abuse of God's people.

  96. I wonder how David will feel a few months from now when the banks foreclose on the Cathedral-Basilica for delinquent loan payments. For 20 years, Msgr. James was successful in making the monthly payments on Apuron's loans. David is unable to do the same but being a Neo would probably be forgiven because of illness. He's pretty good at creating psychosomatic symptoms.

  97. Archbishop you need to rethink your logic and reinstate Monsignor James ASAP! Save our Church before it's too late. It's ok to error or to misjudge. We are all human and we will forgive you. You owe it to your flock to do the right thing. God is not sleeping and justice will always prevail. God Bless The Church!!!!!! Amen....

  98. If mismanagement was the reason for removing Msgr. James, then why is Apuron still around?

  99. At 2:45pm I agree-- this is evident even by his actions at Mass. He never bothers to even stand up to receive the offertory gifts. I live in So Cal now and I have never seen Cardinal Mahony, Archbishop Gomez, or Bishop Vann do this. They always stand to receive the offertory. They also stick around after Mass to speak to their flock!

  100. Keep Msgr. James in your prayer, we still do not know exactly what they are going to do with him, where they are going to send him and the full detail of how they continue to mistreat him.
