A new deadline for the Deacon, and of course AFTER the visitors from Rome leave. But this is also because this blew up in Apuron's face over the weekend. He did not expect Deacon Martinez to accept his censure. He expected him to cower and to crawl. He didn't and he won't. You see, unlike Apuron, Deacon Martinez is not a coward nor a bully. By the way, expect Apuron to bring in reinforcements. The kiko's are not about to lose Guam without a fight. Well, they'll get one.

Subsequent to my defacto censure at close of business December 18 I received a second letter from Archbishop Anthony after close of business December 19 that I am no longer under censure, and my faculties have been restored. I gladly welcome the opportunity to continue serving the people of Guam. However, a second warning was given by the Archbishop demanding an end to my relationship with Concerned Catholics Of Guam. While still under the threat of censure, a new deadline was set for January 19, 2015.
There are many questions that still need to be answered regarding the correct application of Canon Law and due process. Unfortunately, the Archbishop has forbidden me from sharing his letters relative to the censure to any person, which impedes my canonical right to proper counsel and advice. I have relayed to the Archbishop my grave concerns of due process, and also my willingness to openly and frankly discuss his concerns.
Many of you have reached out to me with your thoughts and prayers, and I wish to thank you all. You have lifted my spirits more than words can express. Prayers are so powerful! Let us continue in this spirit of prayer for our Archdiocese.
May the joy of the Child Jesus remain with you throughout this holy season!
Deacon Steve Martínez
