THE REAL VILLAIN


In addition to the unsigned garbage dump of a so-called internal review inserted into the U Matuna, Msgr. David C. Quitugua, Vicar General and Rector of the Cathedral Basilica had his own "internal review" distributed at all the Masses this past weekend, bashing Msgr. James all the more. 

In his piece of crap letter, Msgr. David C. Quitugua accuses Msgr. James of leaving over $400,000 in unpaid bills. 

Well, Msgr. David, even if that were true, you owe the people of Guam far more than that. In fact, not only do you owe the Archdiocese of Agana 44 Million Dollars, you owe us all an apology, and once you've done that, you owe us your absence for the rest of your silly little life.

Here's why:


On December 6, 2011, you wrote to the members of the Archdiocesan Finance Council the following:
I wish to make it known that the Archbishop requests that he be present in the meeting when item number 5 is discussed. Therefore, since he cannot be there, he wants the item tabled until he returns. 
The finance council, as other consultative organs of the archdiocese, has the purpose of allowing the archbishop to obtain, not a binding opinion, but a consultation about facts or activities of the archdiocese. 
The fact that the Archbishop wants to be present is his right because the function of the council is to help him. This help would work best with him present, especially since he has stated that he wants to be present. 
To deny the Archbishop this right, on the one hand, breaks communion with him and, on the other hand represents a “vulnus” towards the Archbishop insinuating a form of disrespect toward his person. 
For this reason, I again invite the council to wait for the Archbishop to return from Rome to have him present when the issue is examined and reviewed. 
Regarding myself, I cannot support with my presence a behavior which could harm the dignity of the Ordinary. I will not be present in the meeting today. 
Now let's take this apart piece by piece, IN LIGHT OF THE FACT that you KNEW about the Deed of Restriction, giving control of the Accion Hotel property to RMS in perpetuity, 15 days previously, on November 22, 2011.
I wish to make it known that the Archbishop requests that he be present in the meeting when item number 5 is discussed. Therefore, since he cannot be there, he wants the item tabled until he returns.
Item number 5 was a discussion about the request by the seminary rector, Fr. Pablo Rodriguez, to convey the title of the Accion Hotel property to the Redemptoris Mater Seminary (RMS).

Msgr. David, YOU KNEW that the property had ALREADY been given to RMS via the Deed of Restriction on November 22. Yet on December 6, you tell the AFC that the Archbishop wants the discussion "tabled".

Why did you not tell them the truth Msgr. David? Why did you not tell them that there was no more discussion since it was already a done deal? Why did you lie, Msgr. David? Why did you lie?
The finance council, as other consultative organs of the archdiocese, has the purpose of allowing the archbishop to obtain, not a binding opinion, but a consultation about facts or activities of the archdiocese. 
This is another lie, Msgr. David. As the Vicar General, you knew that the transfer of the property to RMS required the CONSENT of the finance council as per Can. 1292, and that in this matter, the AFC was NOT simply a "consultative organ", and that in fact, the AFC opinion WAS BINDING. Yet, you lied, Msgr. David. You lied. You lied. You lied. 

Can. 1292 §1. Without prejudice to the prescript of ⇒ can. 638, §3, when the value of the goods whose alienation is proposed falls within the minimum and maximum amounts to be defined by the conference of bishops for its own region, the competent authority is determined by the statutes of juridic persons if they are not subject to the diocesan bishop; otherwise, the competent authority is the diocesan bishop with the consent of the finance council, the college of consultors, and those concerned. The diocesan bishop himself also needs their consent to alienate the goods of the diocese.
To deny the Archbishop this right, on the one hand, breaks communion with him and, on the other hand represents a “vulnus” towards the Archbishop insinuating a form of disrespect toward his person. 
Oh, this is good, Msgr. David, this is good. A "vulnus", huh. Really? A "vulnus"? A "vulnus towards the Archbishop when YOU AND HE HAD ALREADY SIGNED OVER THE DAMN PROPERTY? 

Hell, the only VULNUS here, Msgr. David is your freaking "vulnus" against the Catholic faithful of this archdiocese. The only "breaking of communion" going on here is you and the archbishop "breaking communion" with us. The only "form of disrespect" going on here is the disrespect you have shown us, by signing away that property and then accusing those tasked with protecting the people of this archdiocese from thieves and crooks like you of a freaking "vulnus" against Gennarini's house pet. You lied again, Msgr. David. You lied. You lied. You lied. 

"Vulnus" is Latin for "wound".
Regarding myself, I cannot support with my presence a behavior which could harm the dignity of the Ordinary. I will not be present in the meeting today. 
The "dignity of the Ordinay"? What dignity? You and he had already gone behind the backs of the AFC and the people of the archdiocese and gave away that property! And after lying to the AFC you talk to us of "dignity". What the hell?

You both had already willingly and knowingly harmed the dignity of both your offices, the Church, and the Catholic faithful of this diocese. And you talk about dignity? What?

YOU are the real VILLAIN, Msgr. David C. Quitugua, Vicar General! 

For whereas Adrian is just a bumbling idiot, and Apuron simply Giuseppe Gennarini's stooge, YOU knew better all along. You knew that you were lying to us. You knew that deeding away control of that property was wrong (otherwise there would have been no need for your Dec. 6 charade). You knew that there was no "vulnus" against the bishop because by December 6, you and he had already DONE THE DEED!

You knew. You knew. You knew. And you lied. You lied. You lied. 

And then you are going to give us some bull crap about Msgr. James and how he left you with a few bills? You owe us 44 freaking Million Dollars, Msgr. David C. Quitugua. And then you owe us your absence. FOREVER!
