  1. Tim Rohr- you are a bully of the worst kind!!
Who is Tim Rohr? Tim Rohr is a lay person with ZERO power. Tim Rohr does not have access to a pulpit each week. Tim Rohr does not have control of a whole newspaper. Tim Rohr cannot hire and fire priests. Tim Rohr cannot ordain or not ordain. Tim Rohr cannot decide who can be baptized or confirmed or who can receive any of the sacraments. Tim Rohr cannot use his position and other people's money to publicly trash priests. Tim Rohr cannot give away millions of dollars. Tim Rohr cannot give away archdiocesan property.

Nope, Tim Rohr sat in the pews for many years just like many did and watched the bishop of this diocese abuse the liturgy, abuse the people, abuse his authority, abuse the legitimate magisterium of the church, abuse priests, abuse the people's charitable gifts, abuse our trust, and abuse our respect for his office. 

With the words "resign or suffer a more painful arduous and closure to your assignment" (to Fr. Paul), I said "no more." 

So what have I done? I started a blog. Millions of people start blogs, but normally they don't get millions of people to read them. Why is mine different? Mine is different because it is not about my opinions. It is about facts. And the fact is that we have a bishop who abuses the liturgy, abuses the people, abuses his authority, abuses the legitimate magisterium of the church, abuses priests, abuses people's charitable gifts, abuses our trust, and abuses our respect for his office. 

And I have simply used the bishop's own actions, letters, and words to show what people have already known for decades but were too intimidated to publicly say it. 

But why the worldwide attention? 

Because here in Guam, we have the perfect test case for the full implementation of the Neocatechumenal Way. In every other diocese around the world where it is present, the NCW is held in check to some degree by the bishop of the diocese.

However, only in Guam is there no bishop to hold the NCW in check. In fact, they hold him in check. He is there full servant. Thus the NCW can fully "bloom" here and thus we see that at its root it is a very rotten flower. And now the whole Catholic world can see for itself what will happen when this tragedy of a movement gets its full grip on a diocese.

It does not matter that the Vatican has approved a statute for the Neocatechumenal Way. It does not matter because the leadership of the Neocatechumenal Way, including Archbishop Apuron, blatantly and publicly ignore the statute for the Neocatechumenal Way, just as he blatantly and publicly ignores the norms which were put in place by the Church to protect the faithful from the crap he permits to happen during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. (I purposely call it a Sacrifice because Kiko doesn't.)

Make no mistake. Tim Rohr has ZERO power. But the truth does. 


  1. Thank-you for starting this blog. I know it has to be very time consuming and has not been easy to deal with the insults hurled at you. There are other blogs on the internet dealing with what you speak of, but do not have the courage to put their name on it and are not current or not in English. You have had the guts to stand behind what you present on this blog with your name. The truth, your name, and the fact that the blog is English (a popular language) has made the blog successful.

    Although AAA actions are egregious , I do not think he is the only NCW bishop. NCW Responsible, Bishop José Luis Del Palacio y Pérez-Medel of the Callao diocese in Peru (appointed Dec. 2011) is now getting some pretty unfavorable media attention also. NCW bishops seem to love to bully those who are not NCW followers.

  2. For too long, our local Catholic Faithful has shrugged off the NCW bullying by labeling it their 'rite of passage' and by asking the Faithful to simply 'get over it.' Those NEO WAY attitudes need to change. Every day, our local Faithful are bullied into silence and are afraid to speak up. Let's break this silence and end this NEO WAY ‘rite of passage’ bullying.

  3. That's right, Mr. Rohr, you have no power and no temptation to abuse a sacred trust given by the Catholic Faithful. What you do have are integrity and truth, which are worth more than all the power one can ever dream about. After all, what is the use of power when not exercised properly? You have thrust yourself in this effort to expose lies and blatant disregard for the Magisterium by a bully and his cohorts. In the process you have made yourself a vulnerable target for the dangerous and ruthless retaliation of a leadership that abuses this sacred trust. Your family and friends were caught in the crossfire but you remained true to the deepest call of your conscience by due diligence and research. You have opened the eyes of the gullible and those who defer to authority, and stirred their passions to reclaim stewardship of their Church. Yes, Mr. Rohr, better not to have power than to make an accounting to God that you abd your family will not be proud about. You have integrity and you have truth. In this world those qualities are easily repudiated because of human pride and weakness, but these are greatly prized by those who "run the race, and fight the good fight" for the greater glory of God and he sanctification of the human spirit. That, in my estimation, is power that really counts. Thank you, Mr. Rohr. You are not alone.

  4. For all that is NEO…….
    Work for a cause NOT for applause.
    Live life to express NOT to impress.
    Don’t strive to make your PRESENCE noticed just make your ABSENCE felt

    Tim is only a "bully" to those who fear having the TRUTH be known

    1. I second that Mary Lou!!

    2. I watched the movie "American Sniper" based on the true story of Chris Kyle. Chris' father taught him early in life that there are three types of people - the wolf (bully), the sheep (good people unable to defend themselves), and the sheep dog (good people who are unafraid of the bullies and protect themselves and others). Thank you Tim for standing up to the bullies on the hill. Many of us stand beside you.

  6. You don’t have to disrespect and insult others simply to hold your NEO ground.
    If you do, that shows how shaky your own NEO position is.

  7. The Truth hurts to those that have turned a blind eye to it!

  8. Ain't that the truth!

  9. Might does not make right; but truth does. Truth will not only prevail, it will expose the corruption and be the downfall of the hierarchy of this archdiocese.

    The Catholic faithful back Tim, the strongly organized Concerned Catholics Of Guam and the growing grassroots-Catholics in the fight to take back our authentic Catholic Faith, our Churches, our Parishes and the reinstatement of our good priests and deacon!
