"...recent discussions regarding the Neocatechumenal Way smells of racism, xenophobia and hatred of non-islanders..."Since you brought it up, Fr. Pius, let's talk about the missionary arrogance, if not racism, of some of "our" seminary professors against the Chamorro people and their Catholic beliefs. See http://thoughtfulcatholic.com/?page_id=7587This man is a Neocatechumenal professor, an invited professor of the seminary and a faculty member at UOG. He quickly took down his sloppy words from the internet, but not before we retrieved them.
Talk about xenophobic in reverse. And this man teaches your children at UOG. Dr. Underwood, are you reading this! See link in above comment. The guy doesn't even know how to construct a sentence.
Are you another person who has the neo-cancer?! You know where your brain cells go dead after being brainwashed? Hatred for "Non-Islanders" Let me enlighten you and expand your mind Mr. White: 1) I am an Islander born and raised. 2) I have good relationships with many "Non Islanders". 3.) My girlfriend is a "Non Islander".Let me ask you Mr. White are you an Islander? Because you have a "Non Islander" last name! If you are not, and by saying all these comments, you be a lonely man.
Good Morning, Pius, Pizza be with you. Go home to your monastery and spend the rest of your days in prayer and penance. Is there some reason you haven't lived the life you love to write about for years? What's the reason? Have you shared it in community? Have you shared the reason with the Tall Woman you spend so much time with? Why are you explaining about the seminary, where is Archbishop?
And what about Neocatechumenal Fr. Asproni's words at the clergy meeting with Archbishop Krebs? Is THE CULTURE the problem as he says?
There is a very noticeable pattern with the NCW and those who speak for it. They love flipping things around and projecting at their opposition what they are in fact themselves. Was it not one of the neo-priests of Barrigada who in the presence of the nuncio complained that the problem within the church is not the NCW or its ways, but THE CULTURE? We've read testimonies from Japan and other international communities of how the NCW doesn't even respect the cultural beliefs of the countries they've invaded? Have we not seen in our very own churches here, their founder Kiko's plagiarized paintings painted on the sacred walls. Have we not heard that very distinct Spanish sounding music of Kiko's imposed on the people here? An ex neocat told me they were even forced to strum their guitars only in the way Kiko had instructed. Let's flip it around again and point things back to the true racists in this game. What will it take to remove this Father Pius from meddling in the affairs here in Guam?
So we have David Atienza de Fruto as well as Zoltan Szekely at the University of Guam spreading this hate and attacking non-neos. Why so many at UOG? Why are our tax dollars being spent on individuals who are filled with so hate and loathing for our people? Are there more there at UOG?
At 8:40am. I think you got Mr. White wrong. He was quoting Fr. Pius.
Father Paul was fired for harboring a sex offender? What is good for the goose is good for the gander. Shouldnt Archbishop Apuron be subject to the same standards?
Archbishops Mass homily lifted from somewhere. Hey, what is the missionary Presbyter to Asia doing back here? Aurelio from Austria, welcome back. So good to have THREE Neo priests for Mass. Transformation. COMPLETE. JOY!!!! Not.
And the neo crowd. Wow lots of new faces. I know who is in the NCW and they were there filling the pews. Sadly they looked lost, unattentive, and out of place. The singing get you lost? Not enough clapping and tambourines? The motions and GRIM get you lost? Need a translator? Are we doing it wrong since it is not what kiko, Carmen or Mario wants and it is against the 2008 statues. So many kiss kiss kiss. So easy to tell but they didn't want to be there. Don't go. Your a FREAKEN seat filler. Go to be with God and pray not cause your responsibles told you. How long can you keep up that farce? Oh and welcome back. That is what a church looks like. Well since the museum is closing you have a new place to meet on Tuesdays and Saturday nights! Ciao! I taunt you cause I care. Today at 930. There was too many salted people mixed in with us unsalted and too much salt causes high blood and spoils any meal or banquet.
Dear Anonymous August 3, 2014 at 9:17 AM, thank you for pointing out the hypocrisy of our Archbishop. There was one slight difference in the two situations. Father Gofigan was administering the faith and keeping him within the fold of the Church to a sinner. Apuron had a "man on the run" who seems to never have lived up to his sins or face up to fully answer the allegations or stand before his peers or superiors to be judged. "A man on the run", indeed witnessed by his hasty retreat from Guam and his provider of his concealment.
9:30am mass not as crowded as Tony would like., but definitely more crowded than other weeks..unfortunately I tuned in too late to catch the homily or the intercessions, but did notice a lot of double kisses and moving around for the sign of peace. Watching I can almost feel the tension and my heart breaks.
Pizza be with you! muuuah, muuuah, those people in the congregation on the right side neos sharing rides. Kind of them to support Bro. Ton. Next week will be empty again. Saturday evening Eucharist is better.
Maria...you didn't miss the homily. Even Archbishop didn't know what he was reading. EVANGELIZATION!!! forget it.
Sssh. We are slowly bringing them back to Church.
Yay! Back to church! But none of them offered anything to support it. They must have given it all last night. Just be truthful. You think you can fool us but we are now aware. Your tactics are ill planned.
Didn't recognize basket. They use trash bags. Collection: 12.00 cash.
That's why new administration had to dismantle museum, no collection from new Cathedral congregation. The Chuch itself will be the museum.
The archbishop even reads the joke at the start of his homily. Imagine, you are with your friends and you are exchanging jokes and you pull out from your pocket your joke and read it. That part I found funny. Sorry, I am nitpicking. Can't help it.
Archbishop never delivers his OWN homily....always a canned job. What a shame. Too busy writing dimissal letters. Felt sorry for choir looked a little lost over there in the corner. No cathedral ushers. A little kid running around with collection basket..what?Maybe let the Baptists use the worship space for a service. We only need one Mass there. They need the room, I understand. Share!
Hi Tim, sorry for my reply August 3, 2014 1:26pm. I would like to correct myself. It was a sharing of story and not a joke. I actually couldn't keep listening and turned off the TV before the homily was finished being read. You know never got irritated before when he read his homily, the few times I attended his mass. I don't know if he ever did it off the cuff. But after all the events happening, you notice how non-engaging he is. I guess after attending the mass last night at St. Anthony with a homily delivered by Fr. Paul, a comparison can't be helped. I don't know how Msgr James does it but if he is as engaging as Fr. Paul, they will have to build a bigger church in St. Anthony. Sorry again for the earlier error.
Monsignor James LG Benevente may God Bless You WHEREVER YOU GO. Announcement at Arch Mass. What on earth??
May we have confirmation if 10.26am comment is correct.
@11:12 confirmed correct. Unfortunately. What the heck does that mean?
The lector read a statement thanking Monsingnor Benavente for his service at the Cathedral. I don't think we should infer anything negative from this.
I watched 9:30 mass and heard same thing. The thanks was for the museum, from the staff that worked on it, and then the God bless you wherever you go was made.
the comment just correct. They also announced that after Mass we can visit the opening of the new museum. the museum was stunning and beautiful. it was also announced in church today after todays opening it will be closed and dismantled
More malicious destruction. The museum artifacts put in trash bags and in the dumpster. What will become of that extensive area with the elevator and all???
I will confirm the announcement and posting is accurate.
I shall borrow from another, "Apuwrong," is defined as what Archbishop Anthony Apuron has demoted himself down to after selling his own people out: Chamorros and all Guamanians. Unbelievable words from unFr. UnPius! These are words you preach. No wonder the products of your neo seminary are like that!They come to our island to demean us, as they have done to our local priests, Gofigan and Benavente.Perfect examples of the leadership of the Neos, Arch Apuwrong has a brain of his own, yet, I, unPius, am gonna run to the news, get put on the front page and do all the talking, I mean lying!You think we're dolts? Ai adai!
The writer is going to get chewed out for calling the neo a Sect. You can tell that unPius is really learning a lot of his English on the JungleWatch.He used "scapegoat" to say that pointing out Accion as a scapegoat to the "reality of the problems" He used the comparison of the Church to a hospital, just like he lifted it from Fr. Efren's letter almost a week ago?Crazy!You decide who to believe, this priest that accuse us of "racism, xenophobia and hatred" (straight from the mouth of unPius) or the reputable professionals that hold true evidence to what really is going on....it is getting worse by the day with these racist, xenophobic and hating Neo leaders!!! People write your letters
Pius, NI' NUNGKA NA PARA IN SEDI NA UN GE'HELU'I I LINA'LA'-MAMI, I HINENGGEN-MAMI, I KUTTURAN-MAMI YA DE MAS I TANO'-MAMI.
Fr. Pius Have you ever preached or published anything about ABORTION, homosexuality or SIN?Start writing about instead of your musings.You, and all priests (including Archbishop Apuron) were ordained to do so. Just Do It!
Yes he has :)
Lol....His name should be "Antho-neo Apuwrong"... For him to say that he is proud to be a chamorro, & guamanian from this lovely island is a joke. A true chamorro, & guamanian would defend his heritage & culture...but he did the opposite...he canned Fr Paul because he saw a person in need of help to return to the church...Gagged Pale Mike because he wanted the speak the truth...And fired Msgr James for putting heart into correcting what is wrong with the church...He basicly tried to blind, silence,& destroy the heart of the non neo community.
The museum was designed and implemented by Monsignor James was on par oe exceeded the quality of museums I've visited in my travels to other communities. It showes the history of the the Catholic Church on Guam from the beginning of the Spanish colonization through today. It showed the papal visit, it showed the history of our bishops, it showed history of our island during World War 2, it showed the history of the priests who have ministered here.Is exactly what you would want all of our confirmation students to visit, all of our people who are part of the church to visit and it's a beautiful exhibit for our visitors.So why is it being shut down and dismantled? I think I just figured it out. I don't recall seeing anything about the history of the Neo and what they have done to our church on Guam in the exhibit. Therefore the powers that be are going to take away exhibits about the history of our church because they were not included.
IF we included them (Neo's) the theme would be "The rise and fall of the Catholic Church on Guam". We would also have to include how racist the Chamorros are to outsiders according to Father Pius! Is that why Tourism is our #1 industry? I'm surprise he (Pius) is the "PIO" for the NEO's on Guam or his he just the one pulling the strings? Just a thought and opinion :)
Tim, don't get a big head. Diana has 58 comments about the placement of the sign of peace.
@ 2:48,I think your on the right track, remove the evidence of the strong Catholic faith that already existed long before the neo invasion. They better return, and not hide or destroy items from the museum.
Well, I count 54 actually and only a few are about that subject. Its all crap anyway. Diana is an idiot.
If it is indeed true that the space will no longer be used for a museum, then it will be used as a Neocatechumenary. Money is not the issue. Mark my words.
What matters is that donations given in response to a direct solicitation are to be permanently dedicated to that purpose. If you donated for the defunct museum ask for return. Do it.
I bet they have plans for something? I heard the AC was broken today too? How convenient...
You got to see this B.S. from Diana,DianaAugust 3, 2014 at 7:42 PMIt was the NCW who prayed to God for a place to house the seminarians, and God answered by giving a FREE hotel, which was converted to a seminary!! Back in February I provided a PDN article showing that the Yona Seminary cost the Archdiocese of Agana and the People of Guam nothing, and I was ridiculed in the jungle because they did not believe it was free. Anonymous at 6:37 p.m., for a long time, the jungle has been asking about the Yona Seminary. Why???? They had nothing to do with purchasing the hotel in the first place? They never even prayed to God for a seminary
More from Diana blog, of course they proposed it; they have the Arch as their puppet. DianaAugust 3, 2014 at 6:49 PMDear Anonymous at 6:37 p.m., The NCW is under the Archdiocese of Agana, and it was the idea of the NCW who proposed the purchase of the hotel in the first place.
So which one is it Diana, purchased or free?
More on Diane's blog. Dear Anonymous at 7:52 p.m., It was free because it did not cost YOU a single penny. God has always used people to carry on His ministry and His plan. And God used a Neocatechumenal benefactor so that the prayers could be answered and provide Guam with a free seminary at absolutely no cost to the people of Guam or to the Archdiocese of Agana
Diana, God used a Neocatechumenal Way BENEFACTOR FOR YOUR FREE seminary? For all the confusion, rumors, outrages, playing with the truth, this is, without a shadow of doubt, the BIGGEST LIE OF ALL. repeat the biggest bold faced lie of all. The benefactor is aware of your nerve, and stupidity. THIS IS POSTED ON BOTH BLOGS.
Thank you to the over 500 people that visited the museum today. Words can not express my appreciation to all the volunteers.the cathedral's staff and most especially Mr. James Santos who helped make it a world class exhibit. Vangie Lujan - museum volunteer....
What the hell are you doing here calling us racist? Why don't you go to South Africa and tell the blacks that they are racists. Go to Australia and tell the aborigines that they are racist. Go to Alabama and tell the descendants of slaves that they are racists. How dare you call us racist. Guam has been ruled by Spain and purchased by the US. We are a possession of the US. You people come here to look down on us and you call us racists? What the hell. Go back to where you came from, take your circus show, your puppet the arch and load up the ship with the caravan of stupid converted neocrats with you and leave us the hell alone.
