And how long has the Archbishop known? At least for ten years. The L.A. Archdiocese was forced to cough up this list in 2004:

"Blogs are evil" - Archbishop Apuron

NOTE: The statement from the chancery saying that the Archbishop has removed Wadeson from "active and public ministry" MEANS NOTHING. He was not functioning in "public ministry". He was functioning as a neo-presbyter. And he will continue to function as a neo-presbyter. The neo has their own rules and their own hierarchy. They will circle the wagons around him. BUT, this isn't about Wadeson. This is about Apuron. How about ZERO TOLERANCE for bishops too. It's coming.

  1. We need confirmation that he has been released from the Archdiocese. Also, are we now going to play a game of "Where Is Wadeson?" This press release is not enough and not satisfactory. This is not just a matter of washed hands. There also is the matter of accountability for even letting this go this far! Who was responsible?!

  2. If they knew about it ten years ago, then this means that there are others...it just hasn't reached the front pages. And more disturbing, what if the NCW's seminarians also were in the same boat and passed around to touch other boys and children throughout the world? I say, NO MORE I-20's for these non-U.S. citizens or greencard holders or permanent residents. Period. Target the I-20's Tim - their Visa's into the United States. It will debilitate them!

  4. "the Archbishop has decided to remove Father Wadeson from active and public ministry at this time." I wonder if this means that he can still conduct his private NCW activities and stay on the payroll?

  5. Tony Apuron won't say this, but I will: Thank you to Tim Rohr and his Jungle Watch Blog for bringing John Wadeson and his past out in the open.

    And Tony Apuron says that the Jungle Watch Blog is evil?

  10. But if you had not revealed this information, the Archbishop would have never taken action. How many more priests like Wadeson is the Archbishop hiding?

  13. According to what I read, Father Wadeson was incarnated here after he was banned from the Diocese of Los Angeles and no investigation or letter of recommendation from his previous diocese? If he is removed from active public ministry, this should include all RMS activities. There is no ifs, whats, or buts about it. He should be put on sabbatical until further notice.

    He should have no contact or engage in the formation of the seminarians. CUT! CUT! CUT! from ALL ACTIVITIES!

    1. DO NOT MISS THE POINT. Apuron would like nothing better than for all of this to be focused on Wadeson. Wadeson did not incardinate himself.

      Delete
    2. Exactly! Do not lose focus. This piece of "scrap" that the Archbishop is throwing to the masses, can just be for appeasement purposes. There are other issues that need to be addressed and he is hoping we will all forget about it. Continue the fight.

    3. I do understand that Archbishop Apuron had and still has the responsibility of investigating the background of priests before Incardination takes place. My question now is, with the upcoming ordination in November, were there background investigations on all the seminarians coming form foreign countries? Are there letters of recommendations from these men's Diocesan Bishops?

    4. When and why did he leave his SVD order? Another question. CREDIBLE accusations, not silly accusations. Why is he back here now? There are Guam sons in RMS right now. If one was my son I would drag him home in time for dinner TONIGHT.

    5. Was wondering why Archbishop did not leave using health or some such reason. Now I see that more and more disease will be discovered the longer he stays. God's will.....all the cancer must be removed for the body of our Church to recover. We'll have to suffer some more before we get better.

  15. Wadeson did not incardinate himself. Why did aaa incardinate? Why why why why?

    1. Why, why, why did he incardinate without proper consultation. Some of us are thinking Archbishop Anthony will move on sooner than later. BUT, what will happen with the seminary full of men from foreign countries? Who is doing all the immigration work for them? That is not free. Wadeson a Formator....just goes to show what we have been talking about the quality of education. What a huge fiasco. God Bless people who remain faithful to Christ's Church.

  16. So the Archdiocese of Agana has finally announced that “they are removing Father John Howard Wadeson from active ministry.” Does this also mean he is no longer a “Formator” at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary? Or is that not considered “active ministry”?

    While Fr. Wadeson has been removed from “active ministry,” there was no mention of his excardination — per the Catholic Encyclopedia, “full and perpetual transference of a given person from the jurisdiction of one bishop to that of another.” Does Fr. Wadeson need to find a “benevolent bishop” before the Archbishop can excardinate him? Does the Archbishop even plan to excardinate him? Or did he remove Fr. Wadeson from “active ministry” as an attempt to placate those who have voiced concerns about this controversy?

    At this point, it seems to me that Fr. Wadeson is still incardinated in the Archdiocese of Agana and, if his victims decide to sue, the Archdiocese would be liable. That is unacceptable. The Archbishop should tell Fr. John Howard Wadeson the same thing he told Fr. Paul Gofigan on 16 July 2013: “I hereby release you from this Archdiocese to go and look for a benevolent bishop willing to accept you.”

  19. As Tim Rohr pointed out, he kept the info from us because it was a mere allegation. And it was only went Wadeson opened his mouth to praise the archbishop and his shenanigans, that Tim was forced to spill the beans on Wadeson. God truly works in mysterious ways. Thank you, Lord. I wonder what kind of spin they will do in reporting this in the U Matuna. Or maybe, nothing will be said of this in the U Matuna.

    For those who think Cardinal Tagle doesn't care about what is happening in Guam and just came and gone for Msgr Benavente's anniversary. Folks, he cares. He was quoted as saying that criticism of a bishop is a criticism of all bishops. So, he must be hurting all over with what is happening here. I was wondering why he just didn't let it pass about his "invitation" to the Way. It seemed so trivial to correct that. But I guess he doesn't want to be misunderstood. He wants his yes to mean yes and his no, to mean no. He doesn't want anybody misunderstanding him and then later on he has to apologize for it because it was not correctly conveyed (sounds familiar?). Some people value their every word. Other people just value themselves.

  20. Archdiocese moral decay.

  21. Let's add more juice here. Father Wadeson was incardinated in 2000 or so. Funny that the vice rector RMS, Father J Julio Cesar Sanchez Magalon celebrated his first mass in San Francisco and guess who was there, Father Wadeson. Did Father Julio also know of this allegations? Did he have something to do with Father Wadeson working in SFO.

    Pictures can be seen on SFO Camino blog! father Julio celebrates first Mass.

    Are these RMS priests covering up for each other????????

  23. Applying his own standard of justice, shouldn't the Archbishop now be forced to resign his position?

    ReplyDelete

    1. What can we DO to force Antonio Apuron to resign or, failing that, have him removed or replaced? He is so thick-skinned and/or surrounded by neos who are insulating him from the real world by appealing to his vanity that just asking him to resign will get us nowhere.

      What can we do?

      For starters, let us apply sanctions, such as:
      1) Boycott his Masses and any function where he presides.
      2) Boycott any Mass presided by a known Neo priest.
      3) Don't support him and his neo-priests financially.

      If he cannot feel our displeasure, his wallet surely will. Then, he surely will get our message!

      Readers, do you have other suggestions?

    2. If Wadeson was incardinated, inspite of "allegations" because the "allegations" were just that, then, what changed? Why was he "removed" now?

      Could it be that the "evil" blog known as Jungle Watch exposed the TRUTH?

    3. I agree with all Frank, but add that we not give money to any parish except in the form of direct payment for utilities and necessities. Do not put money in any basket that the Arch and the Kikos can dip their hands into.

      We need to cut them out completely.

    Here is another suggestion. The Apostolic Delegate thinks that this problem is limited to a small number of people. start a petition, get at least a thousand signatures, then they will have to pay attention.
