Well, well, well. Now why do you suppose the archbishop is so eager to notify the media of this apostolic visit even before the visit is announced to the parishes?

I've noticed that the Vatican has been quite busy on JungleWatch lately:


In the Catholic Church, an apostolic visitor (or Apostolic Visitator) is a papal representative with a transient mission to perform a canonical visitation of relatively short duration. The visitor is deputed to investigate a special circumstance in a diocese or country, and to submit a report to the Holy See at the conclusion of the investigation...Visitors are, however, deputed by the pope for special emergencies and not at stated intervals. Their duty is to inspect the state of the Church in the country confided to them and then to draw up a report to the Holy See.

Could it be that they received the letter from John Toves?

Apuron accused of abuse: Former seminarian lodges complaint with Vatican

Toves stated he forwarded his letter to Archbishop Martin Krebs, the Vatican's delegate in the Pacific islands; Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops; and Cardinal Fernando Filoni, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and a former personal envoy of Pope Francis. 
"I come forward now as I realized that no one else has, and I believe the Archbishop must be held accountable for his actions," Toves wrote.

Or maybe it was all those other letters you all have been sending?

By the way, Bishop Savio, while you are here, perhaps you can assist Archbishop Apuron in his search for the "permission" for the Neocatechumenal Way to consume the Sacred Host seated and for him, the celebrant, to not consume the Sacred Host until he has distributed it to all the communicants. According to this answer he gave parishioners this past Monday at St. Francis parish in Yona, the Vatican has given permission and it's "somewhere". He just needs "to find out where exactly." Perhaps you know?

Rome has approved it – even the way we’re receiving Communion. That they receive the host standing and they can sit down and everybody who receives it and they eat together, as the Priest stands and says, “Behold the Lamb of God…” you know, the acclamation before and they receive it sitting down. Rome has given permission for that. And it’s somewhere I need to find out where exactly, but they told us that permission is given.

Go here for a full transcript of Mr. Tanaka's questions and Archbishop Apuron's answers. We will further comment later on what we all know to be outright lies by the Archbishop.

P.S. Bishop Savio, we are very tired of these lies. Very tired.
