    Thank you Deacon Steve, for standing up to and squarely facing the outright bullying from the Chancery!

    We, are not only the committed members of the Concerned Catholics who stand with you; we, are the rest of the Faithful -- the loyal members of our local authentic Catholic Church -- who also stand steadfastly beside you! We’re proud of your selfless attitude and your integrity, but most of all your courage and stance for the truth in spite of the consequences.

    May the Infant Jesus, Our Lady of Kamalen and our Faith continue to be the source of yours and your family’s strength, Deacon Steve, in this season of Hope and in this our fight to take back our Catholic Church and our authentic Catholic Faith on our island! A blessed Advent to every Catholic Militant!

  6. Deacon Steve, Its sad that it had to come to this. In your efforts to reveal the truth you were censured and stripped of your faculities, given to you by God through the Church. We have yet to see the proof of AAA, Adrian and David to warrant this knee jerk action. Consider this an opportinuity for Grace. when we endure and overcome by God's grace it makes us better people. Its sad when the source of our trials come from our spiritual father and shepherd. What an example of lack in charity he is to the Church...
    God Bless You..

  7. I am not a scholar and never claimed to be. But I have practical common sense and learnt well from the many people who surround me. Ecclesial power is rather like me holding 100 Bullets once I fire a bullet I have only 99 bullets left, and I let them feel the bullet but the pain eventually passes. In other words ecclesial power should always be felt and respected, but rarely ever used in life. Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron has once again aimlessly fired a bullet, exercised in an abusive way his power, yes, it has been felt, caused some pain, but by firing he has shown how useless his power really is. Ecclesial power authority, what ever you want to call it, should be felt, respected, and never used. archbishop Apuron, you are a lame duck, no one listens to you.

  8. By his actions, It is AAA who is building the army against him.

    1. Essentially I already did. Deacon Steve was forbidden to speak about Apuron's ultimatum. However, once Deacon Steve accepted the ultimatum the gag order no longer applied.
