Yesterday afternoon, I began receiving calls from the local media asking about these accusations. As you may know, the media is quite used to coming to me when there is an issue involving the local church.
Msgr. James had been asked by the Vatican not to engage the archbishop or any of his accusations publicly. And since last July, when the archbishop first went public with these accusations, he had been waiting for an opportunity to discuss these matters personally, confidentially, and charitably with the archbishop but not only had he not been afforded this opportunity, he is yet to be given in writing a copy of the many accusations against him which have now appeared in the press at least four times.
The above is a picture file. The attachment is the report which was included as an insert into this week's U Matuna. The full document can be found here:
Archbishop Savio, not even the most despicable politician treats his worst enemies this way. Yet we have an archbishop and a chancellor and probably a nun who works in the chancery, not only willing to lower themselves to this level, but repeatedly if not eagerly so.
Note: there was some concern that the gmail address is not really Fr. Adrian's and that he might have been framed since he did not use his archdiocesan email address which is: firstname.lastname@example.org
However, here is the google profile belonging to email@example.com.
Michael Jucutan is the neo vice-rector at the cathedral.
Patri Piju is Fr. Pius (the Samnut)
