We need to request from Rome an additional Archbishop or appoint someone local from Guam to be one who will be dedicated to the catholics of Guam.
There's a divide in our Catholic faith... you Archbishop must be humble to admit that what you did was very wrong. With this divide, it gives ammunition to other denominations to sway your flock. You have definitely lost focus on the real reason of what the Lord intended y out to be and that's not to be selective of your faithful followers.Your faithful community will continue to stand by the true shepherd of his flock (Monsignor James Benavente).... he IS the people's priest!
Actually anon at 6.27, this is the most likely scenario that Rome will follow.Depending on how much noise we make, and how strong the report from the visitators will be, Rome could nominate another bishop (probably an aux. bishop) to administer the diocese while they decide of the Arch's future.They could also nominate an Apostolic administrator to replace him in case they had to move quickly. Usually the Apostolic administrator can stay in place for several years, with the input of the nuncio and a strong diocesan council and sometimes laity.Then a new bishop is chosen.The problem being that both Father Paul and Msgr James who were very strong candidates to become Apostolic administrator have fallen victim to vicious campaigns of destabilization from Pius and the Genarinis who played their cards knowing they would have to protect the heritage of AAA.It could take time for Rome to clear the hubris, or they could send an administrator from another diocese who understand the islander's culture.Lets keep attentive.
Amen.Since we the people of Guam don't have Archbishop AA's support, AAA should put a stop to recruit new member's into the NCW at this time.
Archdiocese of Agana Guam is considered awaiting a new episcopal appointment. The see of Agana has a seated bishop in name only. He has no authority and the people await the Roman pontiff to Appoint a worthy Archbishop to lead our island. We no longer acknowledge him as the authentic bishop of Guam.
Amen!I hope he sent this to the bishop.
