"...it is a horrible calumny and I am obliged to defend not my person but the church. On the advice of legal counsel I will not answer any questions. However defending the church compels me to a suit for defamation; any damages that I receive I will not keep for myself, but will be given to the charitable causes of our church."
"I have dedicated my life to spread the Catholic faith through my words and actions. It has been my sincere effort to urge strict respect for the teaching of our Catholic faith by leading the Church through prayer, and by example in my own behavior. I trust that the members of our Guam Catholic family who have observed my actions and leadership for the last thirty years will know in their hearts and spirits that these allegations are false."
What a terribly pathetic coda to an already ended episcopate.
