AN INVITATION

We have been working on getting the National Museum of the Dulce Nombre de Maria Cathedral Basilica ready and we would like to invite everyone to the museum tomorrow from 6:30 am -1:30 pm Sunday Aug 3. The opening was announced at the masses at the Cathedral last week. The timing is unfortunate but we had the special privilege of completing one of Monsignor James' last projects here at the Cathedral.

This project has been a vision of Monsignor James and we would like to honor him and his commitment to all of us. The museum is reflection of Monsignor's desire to share and preserve the rich history of the catholic church.There were so many hours of joy poured into this project. I hope that you will find time to visit the museum tomorrow on the second floor of the St. Therese Chapel. The completion of this project is a tribute to Monsignor James. 

I am humbled to have been a part of this special project. 

thank you ..Vangie Lujan

PS....it really is incredibly beautiful. I hope you think so too.

  1. We will attend and show support to Monsignor James for all great work he has done for the Cathedral-Basilica and the Museum. But, we won't be attending Mass at the Cathedral anymore since it has officially been overthrown by Neo Priests! What ever happened to One Holy and Apostolic Church? Did we forget this as Catholics? Take a stand or risk loosing everything the Church has been built on!!!

  2. That's the problem. We see the Eucharist now as neo. We forgot that the host consecrated by a priest who received the laying on off hands from a bishop in line with apostolic succession is the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus regardless of what the priest is, neo, non neo, diocesan, capuchin, jesuit, sinner or holy.

    1. Does the intent of the priest matter?

    2. Mass being called Eucharist = Neo

      We nonNeos are not listening!

    3. Just wondering.....how are the Diaconate candidates doing? Imagine the list would dwindle with all this chaos.

    Will Monsignor James be attending? I'm torn. I feel like if I go I'd be honoring thieves who stole the crown. I'm sure it's great, though. Monsignor James is great in taking lemons and making the best lemonade.

  4. The Cathedral announced at the Sunday 5:45am Mass that after today's open house, the museum will be closed and dismantled.

    1. Yes. After several years of building a place to honor Guam's cultural and Catholic history, it will now be turned into a neocatechumenary.

    2. Sad but I'm not surprised because those in "The Way" would view the museum as one of their material "idols" which they teach to reject. Just like how they pass around bags for "trash" which they tell their members to fill with money. Because money is an "idol" too. I'm not saying this to attack but to just state the facts. All of these things are published in Anti-neo websites from all throughout the world. And many of these facts were exposed by brave Christians who were lucky enough to pry themselves way from the NCW. Without these ex Neos exposing the truth, we wouldn't know some of the complex ways this group operates. GOD BLESS ALL YOU EX NEOS! May many more of you come to see the Light and help bring forth the truth.

    3. Tim, @7:47 is this a fact about the expansive area of the museum turned into an neocatechumenary???????

    4. Yah a neocathecumenary museum! Displays will consists of KIKO'S guitar, his black outfit ( make sure it's fumigated)', Pius vestments, the GENARINNIS seal of approval, and the widows will be changed to stain glasses with the paintings of Kiko and a full blown page by page of the Kikolitist statutes!

    5. You see? Just as Diana said. Bullying. Internet bullying is a cause of suicide. She has proclaimed JW to be high level of bullying. Tim Rohr. Shame.

    6. Monsignor made some nice arrangements in honor of his Bishop in his new Bishops office. Are you going to tear those down too, Archbishop in your frenzied anger?

      Delete
    7. @2:12 pm don't forget another important display for the museum: the ADDIDAS T-shirt the coarse woman Carmen Hernandez wore to see Benedict 16. That would be precious if we could aquire it! Probably need fumigation too. But it would be a prize.

  5. What? Closed after I donated for the exhibits? Oh HELL no. That is it. My families wealth will no longer support the Archbishop. We will just give it to the friars. Maybe Fr. Eric can open a museum. He did such a great job at government house with the exhibit.

    1. Ask for a refund. @7:51. Tell them about the INTENT of your gift. I think the benefactor of Yona property should ask funds to be returned too. Not just. And surely all this fuss was not the intent. FATHER PIUS.

  6. This destructive behavior must stop. Irrational, out of control Archbishop. Someone help him.

    1. Just reading Catholic News New Zealand. Wonder if Nuncio reads it? Nice headline about Guam Museum. Excellent article. great quotes of Monsignor James. I think someone should let them know the news that the museum was previewed and then dismantled. That's historical. Pope Francis making a lot of changes. But at least he kept Vatican Museum. Those things are the patrimony of our Church and people. Speak up!

    These people do not appreciate the true the good and the beautiful. They will never appreciate art or culture so don't expect them to appreciate a museum. There are some things money will not buy and that is culture and taste. It comes with good family character and values.

    1. Father Michael, we know they do not appreciate our culture as per the statement of Father Francesco. It is our culture that seems to be the problem here on island, but a culture he so enjoys with his fellow priests and seminarians...the JOY of stuffing your face with the food laid on our tables during fiestas, funerals, baptismos, etc. The culture of us giving you a stipend whenever you say our funeral massese, wedding, baptism etc. The culture of family unity that will probably NOW DESTROY if it hasn't happened already that we so value in our hearts. Yes, it is our culture that had polluted your minds. Our hospitality will no longer be available to you. So seek and go find Neo members to fill in the gaps.

      Yes, we must change our culture and practice of giving so that we don't spend meellions and mellions of dollars to your cause!

  8. Maybe they need a place to store their tambourines for the Saturday Eucharist Celebration @ 7:30 pm. The Archbishop should also post their celebration in the aganacathedral.org website, so we can watch exactly what they do? If it's so right and everyone is invited then why so secret squirrel? Oh I forgot maybe its because you have to be invited to join. So it is a different Church or group after all.

  10. Maybe it's time to picket the Church on Saturday evening mass...or leave blank envelopes with a note saying...NO MORE MONEY UNTIL ARCHBISHOP APURON STEPS DOWN OR IS REMOVED!

  11. Did anyone take pictures of the museum? I was not able to attend and now I hear it's being dismantled??? This makes me really sad. Why??? As our Entrance Antiphon for the 18th Sunday in Ordinary Time states: O God, come to my assistance; O Lord, make haste to help me! You are my rescuer, my help; O Lord, do not delay. Please God, help us!
