Marilu,feeble attempts come from feeble minds. What can one expect? As the days go on and on, AAA gets worse and worse - or perhaps better and better at what he does best - lieing, and pulling boo-boos. Will it ever stop? YES, it will; and that is why I am holding my breath. Wish I had the money to buy a huge ad or two in the papers that say 3 words - TAIMAMAHLO, OBISPO. BASTA!
Afraid to say as the days go on archbishop gets worse and the worse is not being published by Tim Rohr.
Anon 4:25pm: You don't seem to understand that Tim Rohr is not obligated to publish anything. He does because he loves our Church. He publishes what he wants to inform AND to encourage people to follow his lead.. If you have witnessed something to help the cause in removing aaa, then Write A Letter to the Nuncio. PLEASE. You are under no obligation to let us know that you wrote a letter; however hopefully, you will share with us what you witnessed and allow us to be proud of you.
Thanks, but I think he or she was just trying to say that it's much worse than even what I'm posting, and yes it is. I don't post unless I have documentation . But I do hear of really terrible things I can't post about...yet.
Not only did I not heed the advice of the Archbishop, I voted contrary to his wishes. His appearance on the matter was less than genuine and his muddling through on the issue failed to address the medical vs the recreational use. He did, however, make me realize that he is no longer even a factor to my life and his "advice" is nothing more than a continued PR stunt meant to give him air time, he could careless about anything outside of his NCW community.
I don't know who even reads his column in the U Matuna. He can't mean anything he says as long as he allows Fr. Paul to experience "an ardous and painful...." using Joe Lastimoza as his lame excuse (considering he didn't challenge Joe's community service in Santa Barbara in 1999. What can be more obvious than that?) and giving a filmsy albeit false accusation to move Msgr James to St. Anthony.
Archdiocese of Agana Guam divided church with a bishop separated from the priests and people.Archdiocese in disunity and Archbishop Apuron continues to daily destroy the archdiocese with his cult.
Things could be worse. We could have a whole swarm of neo priests infiltrating our diocese.Oops, that is happening . Tomorrow 3 more neo priests will be a part of our pain for as long as they live. We are a very hospitable people, but we have grown tired of this group. I hope these new priests are quickly able to find a different bishop who will take them.We need priests for all the people, not neo-priest for the neo-people!
The only time I am at peace at mass now is when I attend a mass said by a non-NCW priest on Guam or when I am off-island.
Mull over this, all you Neo-priests to be. After the hoopala of your ordinations tomorrow, it might do you well to question the validity of your priestly ordination. For a sacrament (such as Holy Orders) to be valid, the minister of the Sacrament must have valid matter, use the proper form, and have the right intention. Matter and form may be readily conceded, but intention? When a man is ordained he is taken from among men to do God's will. Validly ordained priests remain priests forever "according to the Order of Melchisedech". Are you being ordained to minister to the wishes and desires of the Roman Catholic Church which is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ ("Go and teach all nations..."), or are you being elevated as minions of Kiko Arguelles to "spread his NCW evangelization"? If you don't see the distinction, you have missed out on your seminary training. I hope that when you are all ordained, the archbishop; will assign you ALL to the Cathedral or other Neo-run parishes, and not field you out to contaminate our other non-Neo parishes. Maybe ask the archbishop to assign you to some mission country where the Catholic Faith is not flourishing. I believe we are doing JUST FINE here in Guam without your help. For all your efforts, however, congratulations to you -- for all that that is worth.
