  1. Anthony Apuwrong and the sect that controls him have no shame; they lie, cheat and steal in front of us, and then they tell us that we are the problem. Well, now you will see that we no longer respect you because of how you treated the Church (people). It is not your Church Tony, you just got lucky with the keys to it, but we are taking it back. May God save your soul.

  2. Please, all benefactors of Museum ask for your donation to be returned. What a mean spirited thing to do. And your seminary in The south is already falling apart. Everything will soon fall to ruin. What about all the LIVES YOU HAVE TRASHED in you mindless walking hypnotized by Pius. Archbishop come to your senses. Stop being so vicious.

  3. Can I make a comment here directed to the Seminarians at the RMS in Yona. I personally am not a Neo and wanted to let you know that just about all my friends and all of the people I run into who talk about our current Church problems here on Guam all say the same thing. My fellow parishioners, friends, other friends from other parishes continue to pray for the RMS Seminarians just like any other Seminarian from any Order. We all agree that the Seminiarians at the Yona RMS are really sweet and honorable men. We do not hold any of the Seminarians responsible for any of the current problems and feel that they are put in the middle of all these problems. Our problems have to do with the people on top at the Archdiocese. Any Seminarian (no matter what Order) is called by the Holy Spirit to serve God's people. It is a gift. I have personally met many of the Seminarians at different Church functions (not lately) and they are so sincere in their love for the Church and people. I hope when this is all over and all the ugly truth comes out about our leaders, these wonderful, Blessed Men will continue to want to serve God and the people of Guam or wherever they are chosen to go. I ask that the RMS Seminarians also pray not only for the Archbishop, but also for Good to conquer the evil in our archdiocese and the people of Guam. We are all Catholics and should all pray for Peace

    1. @9:34 AM The seminarians may seem quite friendly and sincere, but the bottom line is they will always push their believe and teachings of the "WAY" which I now see as the destruction of our Culture, our Language and our Heritage.

      As I walked through the Museum yesterday, I finally saw pictures, artefacts and many more that were a part of my family heritage. Although I am just a mere leaf on a twig of a branch on a tree held down by the roots, my roots, I would have been all so proud to have my very young children be a part of this. Now they will never know. It is truly sad that the very young will never have the opportunity to see this again nor for the generations to come.

      How many of you with different cultures would like to see your culture slowly crumble before your eyes? How many of you would allow this to happen to you? How many of you would actually just sit back and not speak out? Our culture is who we are. The faith that we were brought up with is part of our culture.

      This is truly very sad! Much disappointment in the way the Catholic Hierarchy is handling the problems.

    This is about the lives Archbishop Apuron has trashed. It is about the people he Caused suffering.

  6. I would respectfully counter the comment on how RMS Seminarians are "sweet and honorable men." Many of them have been around the Cathedral-Basilica and the office. They have been walking about with such a sense of entitlement, blatantly unfriendly, now that they are sponsored by the Archbishop and led by Jucutan.

    Cackling aloud, making such a raucous, do they not realize that people are hurting, that people will definitely be very critical of their actions? I think not. Even mere children have more respect on the Church grounds than they do! And I don't think they care either. The Neos have conquered Guam's Church, in their eyes. The belief that they have won show in their actions and, most especially, their faces.

    As comments were made that the RMS Seminarians wanted to take a break from moving msgr. david in and going up to the museum, I felt fear. What will they do up there? Would they have enough respect to not defile any of the exhibits?

    They, the RMS Seminarians and all other Neos may be nice to our faces even smiling that bright smile (just like Fr. Pius flashes around), at events, but remember, they are there to mooch off of you and eat. To eat the very food that their mentors have said to be the root of the problem with the Church. That we, the people of Guam are so wasteful, with our time and money, that we spend all our time cooking, instead of focusing on more important things. Remember, also, that We, THE PEOPLE OF GUAM, not in the Neo, are definitely racist and hateful!

    Do not be a fool, RMS Seminarians are NOT sweet NOR honorable men! They are two-faced users, just like their formators, leaders and most especially, their beloved Archbishop!

    1. I completely agree and have been a witness to your description of the hateful and petty attitude of the RMS seminarians. They are not formed and educated to be priests, servants of the people of God. They are made to be kings, who see the people of God as their servants. And these are the "men" who will be "our" "priests"?

  8. So I hear that Aaron Quitugua, Jonathan Pablo, and the other key Agana Altar Servers have left the Cathedral due to the injustice that has been dealt to Msgr. James. Good luck to Archbishop and Msgr. David without Jonathan and Aaron who served the Cathedral as Masters of (Liturgical) Ceremonies and without the other servers who were always there to assist the clergy. What a shame. As a Lector in Agana myself, I always admired these young men for their dedication to the Church. Now I admire them for their bravery since they will be blacklisted by Apuron and Quitugua.

    1. They won't need them with their new dance around the altar fandangos they call a eucharist.

    2. We must not let any human beings come between ourselves and our Lord in the Eucharist. If you have committed to serve him in the Mass there, your example of humble steadfastness is what will lead others to faith in him. Please reconsider your decision. Read and understand the lyrics to the hymn "Atan Jesu Kristo". Now if you've been asked to step down from your ministries that is a completely different story. Our priests have faithfully given us this example. They did not leave when hardships were placed on them until they were forced to leave. Let us also show our faith and humbly stand fast and defend what we know to true worship and prayer, the center, source, and summit of our faith: the true presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, Jesus in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

    3. I am sure that our ministry would be appreciated at any parish we seek! I'd rather serve at a Parish than to serve under those who continue to their cover ups. No offense taken of course. I see that new administration as nothing but vultures. So with this feeling, I must move and find my comfort again. Peace to all!

  9. No, Tim, they are using the nonNeo betrayers of the True Catholic Church. The vultures waiting at the wings to take over jobs and ministries they have been coveting for so long! We know who our friends are.

    The ones that are going to stay to "help" the transition and get "elevated" to become the "master" of this and leader of that, hiding behind the "we have to stay and be so noble to continue everything, Neo or not." Baloney! We see what you are doing and we know who you are too!

    1. Maybe you are right about some who decided to stay, but there are some who are altar servers because they want to serve Christ regardless of who is celebrating the Eucharist. It is selfish of you to expect the other servers to follow your lead. They serve because the know the Mass is all about God, not you. This drama affects them too but they are wise enough to stay out of it.

  10. to Antoine Tajalle of San Dimas Church,

    I understand your passion and love for the Church. But as a fellow parishioner, do you really see and understand what is happening in front of you? Do you really believe that Archbishop is right to do what he did and must continue on the same path he is at now?

    Perhaps, you do not see or you don't want to see things he has done. For myself, I respect the office that he holds....no longer the person holding that office. Office he holds as the Archbishop or bishop is given to one who promises to carry the work of St Peter and his successors. Many bishops have failed to do this job and were let go as shown in history. It's very much our dear Archbishop is heading on that path of failure. Catholic Church will and always will be forever.....movement such as the NCW is only an ancillary....Catholic faith will go on with or without it. Same goes with all Bishops....they can be replaced...but the Catholic Faith will always be alive!

  11. To be brutally honest here, Tony and crew are taking a very short sighted look at the Museum. Just like previous issues, the PDN could say this is a developing story, because the Chancery is likely to develop more stories trying to appease a very angry flock.
    My guess, and I am pretty confident of this, is that there are two reasons for closing down the Museum.

    First reason, if they were to disclose it, is that they think it will be a cash drain on the Parish. They do not have the creativity nor the business acumen to make this Museum work, and the new Rector certainly does not have the energy to even try. Monsignor James had assembled a group that could work hard to turn a vision into reality. Monsignor David and the Archbishop have no vision beyond the Neo. But let's look at the costs...
    The building is complete, and whether the museum is opened or closed, the loan has to be paid. So don't add that to the equation in a open or close scenario. So what expenses are there? Monsignor James already had volunteers lined up to staff the museum, so there would be no labor costs. The items in the museum are owned by the Archdiocese or loaned by the faithful at no cost so that all may appreciate our history...God bless them for their generosity! So no cost there either. The only cost would be for power - air conditioning and lights. That's it!
    Monsignor gets about 800 tourists a week who pay $1 each to see the Cathedral. It would not be a stretch to expect about 500 tourists a week willing to pay $2-$3 to see the museum that we have. That covers the power costs.

    Second reason, the "new administration" wants to use the space for other purposes. This is probably the most likely real reason if they were going to be honest, for the dismantling. But they don't want to say it since money was donated to build and operate a museum. Anyone who donated for this would then have a claim to demand a refund.

    Just one more misstep by those three "spiritual leaders" on the hill. When will they learn?

  12. Kuam states that the Museum is closed only temporarily according to Father Adrian Crystal no Balls. Kinda late for this. The families have taken their things. I am wondering if they were told to do so. Anywho there is a family that is packing up things at this very moment.

    So sad that whatever Msgr James has accomplished the other side of the fence seems to destroy it. The Lord have mercy on your souls!
