He who receives Holy Orders is made partaker of heavenly grace precisely that by his ministry he may promote the welfare of the Church and therefore of all mankind.He who is not his own master and is in the power of another, should not be dedicated to the divine service.- Catechism of the Council of Trent on Holy Orders
Jose, they are all evil stealing money and Land from Guam, breaking families, they have no love for the church . All they want is money money money and lots of it to support the kingly life style of archbishop Apuron. If you or I flew first class we would need money, and would have to be obstinate to get money. All the NEO want is money from the rich and generous people in Guam. money money money. Apuron led the NEO to believe he will give them all the money they want just help him become a cardinal . Apuron is a needy individual, always wanting money. Perhaps a deprived childhood not a wealthy family so instead he takes wealth from the church.

Although, having to purchase everything from one source and one source only, that is from the catalog of Kiko, and the lack of transparency in reporting of acquired assets and monies during scrutinies, I can see where the focus on the problems in understanding the NCW reside. However, while it is concerning, I think that money is the worldly issue at hand - there is a greater spiritual investment to be made and the more the clergy are insistent, through their actions, in remaining contrary to the statutes approved by the Church, the more it will be made clear what and who is reaping the "spoils."
They remain obstinate because they must or the entire foundation of their beliefs would begin to unravel. When the Holy Father finally sees fit to denounce the neo itinerary for lack of conformity with the teachings of the Church, you will likely find many Kikolites would rather leave the Catholic church than deal with the pychological and emotional discord they would experience from acknowledging their beliefs were wrong all along.

And what follows speaks to who should also receive the intentions in our prayers and fasting; those walking in the way seeking salvation through the Church. We must also make sure that those of us with these concerns do not create a scenario that would see your prediction come to pass. In other words, we must continue to recognize that these are our brothers and sisters in Christ. Unfortunately, justifiable and righteous admonition seems impossible as long as our Archbishop is "walking." Pray that he realizes that in adhering personally to the NCW itinerary, he is unable to shepherd to the rest of the his flock without prejudice.
Thank you again, Jose M, for your Charity … and for reminding me that we must continue to keep the intentions of those in The Way — especially those who irritate us the most — in our prayers and fasting.
