AI YAI YAI YAI, ADRIAN

Archbishop Krebs, are you hearing this? Adrian says you're just dropping by for coffee. You may want to investigate this liar-in-chief first.

  1. I read about the recent ordination in Saipan but couldn't find where the new priest graduated from. Might just have missed it. The article in the U Matuna says it was a reproduction of an article from Saipan. Just wondering it the original article didn't actually identify where the new priest graduated from. You'd think that important piece of information will be in there. Or maybe it is not that important. Just curious if they removed that piece of info since people will realize how come a Saipan lad can be sent to an off-island seminary and I don't mean, RMS. Sorry, if I can't help thinking this way. Tim, are you able to look into this. You don't have to publish this unless U Matuna removed that info from their article.

      Anonymous (December 22, 2014 at 1:25 PM), you were not alone in wondering where Fr. James Balajadia received his formation. I did a little research and found an article from October 2014 at http://www.saipantribune.com/index.php/balajadia-ordained-deacon/. The article reported that "Balajadia, a 2007 alumnus of Mount Carmel School, completed his graduate studies and formation to the priesthood at the Pontifical Urbaniana University in Rome after transferring from Mount Angel Seminary in the fall of 2012, where he double majored in Philosophy and Literature." Curiously enough that particular sentence was also featured in the December 2014 follow-up article about the ordination at http://www.saipantribune.com/index.php/fr-james-s-balajadia-newest-member-clergy/ BUT was edited out of the U Matuna Si Yu'os article.

      It's also interesting to note that the October article mentioned that "The ordination was conferred by the imposition of hands and the prayer of ordination by Archbishop Anthony Apuron of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Agana, Guam." Yet, it was not AAA, but Archbishop Martin Krebs, who ordained Fr. Balajadia to the priesthood.

    2. Archbishop Apuron ordained Fr. James as a Deacon back in October. In December, Archbishop Krebs ordained Fr. James to the priesthood.

    3. Apology to all especially to Mary Lou. I guess we both missed that portion indicating where Fr. James graduated from. I read again the article and found the info was not edited out. It was in the last part of the article. Sorry, for thinking that U Matuna edited it out. Sorry to Tony Diaz, editor of U Matuna. But the question remains, how is Saipan able to send somebody off-island and not Guam. Of course, now it is moot and academic since we have two seminaries in Guam. But do we really have two seminaries in Guam?

  2. I think Fr. James Balajadia is formed in good seminaries.

  3. Isn't Mount Angel the seminary Aaron Quitugua requested to attend? If this seminary is good enough for Saipan and other places, why isn't it good enough for Guam?

    1. Because we already have two seminaries.

  4. Mount Angel and all pontifical universities offer excellent priestly formation. Much higher standard than rms.

  8. So what seminary are men in Saipan, who come forward answering the vocation call to the priesthood, going to? Can someone in Saipan answer that?

  9. Out of context here...Poor man was summoned at midnight and delivered 100lbs of rice today to the Chancery. Are you feeding the poor? Are you feeding the homeless? Are you feeding the NCW members who meet everyday to discuss the issues at hand? Are you feeding the reinforcement that are on island or who are arriving? I am just wondering why a 100 lbs of rice?

    I am hoping that the Chancery will be opened to the poor and the homeless, and like Pope Francis, Archbishop Apuron will welcome them with open arms giving lots of hugs and kisses.
    Fat chance this will ever happen.

    Sorry, maybe these bags of rice is for a pre-victory party.
