LE PAPE FRANCOIS A RECU L'EVEQUE CONTESTE ANTHONY SABLAN APURON

Note to Pope: Archbishop Apuron will probably tell you that the allegations against Fr. Wadeson were never litigated. It doesn't matter. Archbishop Apuron had a responsibility to the people of Guam at the outset of Fr. Wadeson's incardination to be honest with us about his record if only to tell us that he believed Fr. Wadeson to be innocent. He did not. Rather, he hid Wadeson's record, not just from us, but from the Archdiocese of San Francisco where Wadeson was "sent". And when Wadeson's record was exposed by us, Apuron hid him.

    1. More reason to deny him the red cap! Pope Francis spoke against greedy priests. I don't see why AAA should be exempt.
      By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D. 21 Nov 2014: The people of God can forgive their priests when they have a weakness, or when they slip up, said Pope Francis Friday. “But there are two things that the people of God cannot forgive: a priest attached to money and a priest who mistreats people. That they cannot forgive!” he said.

      The Pope made these remarks during his homily at Mass Friday morning, as he reflected on the gospel passage where Jesus casts out the moneychangers from the Temple.

      “I think of the scandal that we can give people with our unpriestly attitude and habits in the Temple,” Francis said, “the scandal of commerce, the scandal of worldliness. How many times when we enter a church, even today, we see there is a price list for baptisms, blessings, Mass intentions. And people are scandalized,” he said.

      Francis related that once when he was a young priest there were a couple of college students who wanted to get married. They had gone to a parish, and said they wanted to have the wedding with a Mass. And the parish secretary said, “No, you can’t.” “Why can’t we have a Mass?” they asked, since this is what the Church recommends. “No, you can’t, because you are only allowed 20 minutes.” “But why?” “Because there are other shifts.” “But we want the Mass!” “Then you have to pay for two shifts!” And so they paid for two shifts. “This is the sin of scandal,” said the Pope.

      When people working in the temple “become businesspeople,” the Pope said, “people are scandalized. And we are responsible for this. The laity, too. All of us”

      “It is a scandal, when the Temple, the House of God, becomes a business,” he said.
      “What does Jesus have against money?” the Pope asked. “Because redemption is free. It is God’s gratuitousness that Jesus brings us, the total gratuitousness of God’s love. So when the church becomes a business, people start saying, ‘I guess salvation isn’t free.’ And that’s why Jesus takes a whip in hand to cleanse the Temple,” he said.

  2. One thing's for sure, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco didn't just laugh the incident off. Also, this shuffling around was at the behest of the transnational, sect-like "Chemin Néocatéchuménal".

  3. There is another reason for a Neocatechumenal contingent from Guam to be in Rome now: the Third World Congress of Ecclesial Movements and New Communities.

  8. Why not return BOTH Msgr. James to the Cathedral-Basiiica AND Fr. Paul to Sta. Barbara Parish?

    Remember that Fr. Paul was the first priest to be removed from his parish under false pretenses. Let us also remember that the Archbishop told Fr. Paul "I hereby release you from this Archdiocese to go and look for a benevolent bishop willing to accept you." Fr. Paul is now "in residence" at St. Anthony-St. Victor Church, a priest without a parish. Granted, the silver lining is that now more people are able to be blessed by having Fr. Paul celebrate Masses throughout the island. Friends have expressed their delight at finally being able to attend his Mass and hear his homily when he fills in at their parish, while Sta. Barbara parishioners continue to pray for his return.

    At least Msgr. James was not advised to seek a "benevolent bishop." He was assigned to St. Anthony-St. Victor Parish as was Fr. Paul; BUT unlike Fr. Paul's "non-status," Msgr. James is a Parochial Vicar.

    1. Please remember to wish Fr. Paul a Felis Kumpleanos on his upcoming birthday in December and assure him of our prayers, admiration and appreciation.

    2. Yes, Mary Lou, both Msgr. James and Fr. Paul should be returned to their former parishes. I care deeply about both but worry more about Fr. Paul because his situation is more precarious. The ouster of Msgr. James increased and renewed my concern and my prayers for Fr. Paul because any doubts I had about Fr. Paul's responsibility for his ouster before were swept away due to trumped up charges being unfairly made on a second innocent non-NCW priest.

  9. Does anyone know if the gift shop is closing? There were some fliers at my parish posted on the doors. 25% off selected items. Just a thought.

    1. I don't know for sure if the cathedral gift shop is closing but when I went in last Monday to ask if they had the "365 Days With the Lord" daily readings for 2015 they did not have them and said they aren't ordering anymore books of any kind.
