At the 930 mass this morning, AA welcomed back all 3 of the newly ordained neo priests in attendane. He says he will announced their assignments after the procession tonight. Also AA has a bodyguard with him.
Why is he so afraid? How easy it would be to make this all go away. Just say you didn't do it, Archbishop! Just say you didn't do it.
I'm glad he has a bodyguard. Now our kids will be safe from AAA.
Who is the bodyguard? HAROLD?
AAA does not need a physical body guard. He needs a SPIRITUAL body guard for his soul. What do you think AAA?
All this would stop if archbishop simply goes before the media and informs the archdiocese none of this is true. it would be the end. But everything the archbishop has done since John arrived raises greater questions about archbishop's ability to lead our catholic island.
And who is paying for this again? Here we go with another expense. I guess the parishes are going to be asking more in the second collection. Maybe the bodyguard is a NEOnite who is giving his time, talent and treasure to protecting the pope of the Pacific region.
Even the office of the secretary of state is left wondering about the body guard. Not even in Mexico city when bishops speak against drug lords do they need a body guard. Oh well..............
A bodyguard? Who does he think he is, the Pope!?
If I understood the announcement of the assignments correctly Fr. Julius is assigned to Merizo, the Italian "presbyter" to Santa Rita and Harold as vice-rector or assistant to the vice-rector of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary. Maybe someone heard the details more clearly than I. Santa Barbara dodged a bullet this time. I was happy to see Msgr. Benavente marching with the knights and ladies of the sepulcher of Jerusalem (or whatever that organization is called). I think I saw Fr. Paul though I'm not sure because I've never met him.
Looks like Apuron has seen how much Harold is disliked and put him some place for safe keeping. He's keeping the other two out of the way as well by sticking them in the south. Maybe the southerners will convert them to Catholicism.
how can you possibly appoint a newly ordained priest as a vice rector of a seminary even if it is a fake seminary!
Sure Father Paul walked during the procession. And walking right beside him was J. Lastimoza. I thought that was very noble!
Assistant to the vice rector? Plenty time to drive for Archie in the Equus! Way to go HAROLD. Score!
Safekeeping for now.
Surprising Harold is not appointed as bishop's secretary or is he??????????????
Tim, for international readers please can you update us on the Body Guard.
I wasn't there. Maybe someone else can.
The so called bodyguard was actually his responsible. He escorted AA back to the sacristy after mass. People were wondering if he really was, it sure seemed he was guarding AA
You mean his body guard was his superior giving orders to him. So Pius and a body guard are governing this archdiocese?
A bodyguard? Is he handsome?
Did people stop to talk with John after the procession?
Can we follow Apuron's line of thinking and suspect that there is some kind of "relationship" between Apuron and his "body" guard, in the same way he explicitly expressed a relationshipbetween Fr. Paul and Lastimoza?
It is always interesting to understand the psychological reasons people actually do certain things.Beside the fact that you can see the big paws of Pius the Samnut from Malta, all over this crude attempt to portray the Archbishop as somehow being in some danger to his person, hence painting the opposition to his dictator ways, as violent and extremist, and attempt to discredit said opposition. Beside this shameless attempt, lets look at how the Arch is thinking or let himself be manipulated by his consigliere.We can laugh and find it funny that the Arch found it necessary to require the use of a bodyguard. Yet, lets give him the benefit of the doubt on this subject at least, and agree that he might feel threatened by the anger of his flock.You basically have two ways to go about finding a bodyguard, and these two ways are revealing of the reason you get one.The first way is to get a professional. Somebody of great experience, integrity and high level of energy and patience. Somebody with this background could easily be found among the large community of Catholics that are retired from the police or the armed forces here on Guam.They would be intended to serve and protect.The second way, here is different. You basically get a "goon", somebody of imposing physical size who project an image of intimidation and fear.These kinds of individuals are a dime a dozen in every port around the world.It is obvious that the Arch and his consigliere (who is used to this quasi Sicilian approach) decided to go the second route and hire an individual of dubious past and character, whose only saving grace is that he is a member of the sect.The message here is: impress and spread fear, maybe provocation.What kind of people (specially religious people) would come up with a scheme like this?We all know the answer, people that have lost the Catholic way.Indeed if you compare these actions to those of our Holy Father the Pope, who fearlessly dives in crowds and outpace his bodyguards to mingle with the common people, the comparison becomes almost cruel.Once again the emperor has no clothes and he is the only one that does not know it.
I miss the WOODWORM! Where are you?
