None other than Fr. Pablo Rodriguez, the rector of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary. Apparently he had a seat next to Fr. Nowak and had his ear the whole way.
Fr. Nowak, we trust that you can see through these people.
By the way, KUAM reported that both Apuron and the visitors declined to be interviewed last night at the airport.
If this really was a "pastoral visit" to promote "reconciliation" as Archbishop Apuron has billed it to be, or worse "a reward" for Apuron's wonderful promoting of the "New Evangelization" in our region - as he bragged after his meeting with the pope - then one would have expected Archbishop Apuron to at least make some warm and welcoming statement.
His actions last night were quite a bit different than his initial statement to the press about the visit (read here) where he trumpets about how "pleased" he is to "announce the upcoming visit", and Fr. Adrian's telling the media about how "very happy" he was about the visit, and how they were coming to visit the sick just like Archbishop Apuron is doing.
Well he's right about one thing. They are definitely here to visit the sick.
