WOW: IT'S BEEN A BUSY BROADCAST DAY! (CAN'T WAIT FOR MONDAY!)

"Two days, just 2 days after a public demonstration in support of Msgr. James Benevente," said Rohr, "he [Archbishop Apuron] comes up with this 'urgent' press statement with a letter dated back to January."




After days of silence on Archbishop Apuron's decision to dismiss him, Monsignor Benevente issued a statement Friday afternoon, saying that "lesser road was chosen."

JOKE OF THE DAY: "We Guamanians are renowned for our hospitality and dialogue.  Let us begin all together the process of renewal, reconciliation, reordering and moving forward." - Archbishop Apuron

“Despite my repeated pleas to be presented with the written allegations of financial mismanagement and the opportunity to respond, the decision was made to go to the media and public first. I am confident that this entire situation could have been resolved amicably in order to spare our community the hurt and division that exists today; however, the lesser road was chosen.” - Monsignor James Benavente

Monsignor: 'Spare our community the hurt'

Monsignor James Benavente issued a statement just moments ago that despite Archbishop Anthony Apuron's public statements over the past few days about alleged financial mismanagement under Benavente's watch, Benavente hasn't been presented with the written allegations.

Richard Untalan, a former finance official for the island's Catholic Church, this week questioned the decision to blame Benavente, saying Apuron also played a role in the financial decisions.

Ousted monsignor: "the lesser road was chosen"

"Despite my repeated pleas to be presented with the written allegations of financial mismanagement and the opportunity to respond, the decision was made to go to the media and public first. I am confident that this entire situation could have been resolved amicably in order to spare our community the hurt and division that exists today; however, the lesser road was chosen."

Catholics create Facebook page to rally around monsignor

Although Monsignor James Benavente has not returned calls for comment on his removal from his positions within the Archdiocese of Agana, several concerned Catholics have formed a Facebook page to come to his defense.
