FRENCHIE KNOWS



frenchie has left a new comment on your post "WHAT ARCHBISHOP APURON SAID ABOUT THE TRIDUUM": 

Apuron is like the proverbial mouse who got in the labyrinth lured by that piece of cheese....
Now, not knowing how to get out, and realizing his foolishness the stress is palpable.

I had not heard the archbishop in a very long time, but I can bear witness that the voice I heard recently during a conversation with a third party, was extremely stressed.

Anthony is under a huge amount of pressure, and he is at a loss on how to proceed. His close circle of advisers are self serving and very mediocre. Pius works contrary to his interest. 

I do not hold Tony in my graces, but I truly felt sorry for that frail shadow of a man.

What is left of Tony is falling apart under our own eyes.

  1. It appears he is bringing an "arduous and painful closure" to his own assignment. Let this be a lesson to the other Kiko followers.

  2. tony's self-deception was in convincing himself that it would be acceptable, or at least tolerated by God, for him to tamper with God's established order and have his own separate following of worshippers

    tony successfully deceived the people into believing that disobedience to God's commandments was acceptable or tolerable to God, and that unrepented-of sin would not be met with devastating consequences

    this assumption cost tony and his minions any and all hope of eternal salvation, and assured them of an eternity in the lowest depths of the lake of fire

  3. Tony's mental state and health continue to deteriorate as his grand scheme to gain the adulation of the masses and be exulted by the Kikos continues to unravel. He brought this upon himself. I feel sorry for him as well but he needs to make things right before he appears before his Maker.

      Archbishop Apuron you are suffering? What about suffering you caused ?

    3. If Apuron is truly suffering it is miniscule to the anguish he has caused to the Guam Catholic community. With all the drama going on some of our brothers and sisters in Christ have stopped attending mass while some have left the Church. Many of the remaining faithful are holding on to the Faith and praying that things will turn around for the better as more and more among us are speaking out and advocating for truth, justice, accountability, and most importantly our authentic Catholic faith.
      St. Michael, defend us in battle.

  4. And yet he remains deserved of neither pity nor compassion. Firstly, he and he alone made the decision to invite this evil upon his head. And I still firmly believe it was for self-serving interests. Secondly, the solution has presented itself and yet he still refuses. All he need do is recognize the error of his ways, show contrition by restoring Fr. Paul and Msgr. Benavente, and finally resign his office. His stress will all cease at that point. And sadly that's the best he can hope for because nothing can repair his reputation anymore. But why does he continue to refuse? Because he is not sorry for the harm he has done to our Church. He's just frustrated that things didn't go according to the plan. He'll not become a cardinal, he'll never rise in ranks in the Way, he'll never live out his life in the lap of luxury he has become accustomed to, and his legacy will be nothing but a skid mark in the history books. He betrayed his faith, denied his God, and now the price must be paid. As Christ said of Judas, it would be better for him not to have been born. Buckle up Tony, you're in it for the long haul. Eternity awaits.

  5. Sorry, short on sympathy here. I am still not forgiving him for using the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as bait so we can give money to his Neos or listen to an unapologetic drunk. Not until he shuts down that fake priest factory and starts to come back to the one true Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church and renounce the fake prophet, then maybe, will I begin to feel any sympathy for him. He brought this upon us, not just himself. He shows and says that they do things different, which makes them different. If you are not with us, then move on. I don't know how many times we have to say it, if you have your own priest, Eucharist, liturgy and hierarchy then you are your own religion. I don't have a problem with that, just do it elsewhere. Why is that so difficult? Since what we regular Catholics do, under the guidance of the GIRM, are not good enough for you then leave us alone. Build your own churches and chapels, oh and take your ugly paintings and music with you. Then we can have peace again on this island.

    1. Mr. Santos, your comments above are "right on point", Peace begins with Neo's building own church and getting out of Parishes.

  6. BTW Tim, page 12 of the March Umatuna, the Pope said "Belonging to a Catholic movement or any other church group is supposed to help Catholics live a Christian life and reach out to others, he said. If instead it becomes a "brand-name spirituality" and an identity that excludes others, it is just another organization." I'm wondering if the Neos read this. I'm surprised they did not recall the paper again. When you close the blinds and shutters what does that tell everyone else? All are welcome? Well at least they don't bar the door, because God forbid that 200 people might burn to death. NCW, just another organization. I didn't say it, Pope Francis did.

  7. Frenchie. I know you are more astute than I. I have only studied this man for 23 years but share your observation. I have observed the past three months severe stress in his body language and language. When bishop Apuron is in stress he has a particular style durning mass. He keeps clearing his throat as though filled with colds to get sympathy of people. But there are further observations look very closely which are signs of serious stress.

  8. Way to proceed. Very simple. For health reasons Anthony Sablan Apuron Ofm Cap best to offer his resignation as Archbishop Of Agana Guam USA to the Roman pontiff.
    Archbishop knows his own personal health is now suffering because of his no administration of this archdiocese. For him to remain in office is dangerous to Guam and dangerous for his personal health. Exercise humility now, resign, enjoy the retirement years, and allow Rome to freely appoint a new Archbishop. it's over archbishop . " Archbishop Apuron there is life beyond San Ramon hill."

  9. When you attack priests expect arduous and painful suffering . When you assist a priest blessings and graces will flow to you. Believe me all those who attempt to destroy priests end up being sick or passing away. Frightening .

  10. Speaking of arduous and painful closure, what is the latest news on Fr Paul? It's been over a year and I know you we're saying there is a possibility his case was never filed. Is that possible? Is Fr Paul content with his current position at St. Anthony? Will his case ever be settled?

    1. Dear anon at 10.55... I waited a few days before answering you, because your dialectic and your questions are eerily like the Archbishop's.
      You sound like somebody who already knows all the answers, but feigns interest, in order to go on a fishing expedition.
      While our lord Jesus Christ was fishing for souls, you are fishing for clues.
      It will be two years, not one (in July) since Father Paul was illegally removed from his parish, defamed, publicly insulted and maligned by his spiritual father the Archbishop himself.
      It has been two years that the Archbishop has pretended and claimed (to all that would listen) that his hands were tied, since the case was adjudicated in Rome. This is still and remains to this day his only line of defense......
      After retracting from his decree on not allowing Fr Paul to celebrate the Sacrements, he parked him as a priest in residence at St Anthony's.
      Father Paul chose the road of prayer and reflection and deliberately has kept away from the public eye, outside of the charges given to him by Msgr Bibi on a week to week basis.
      His case was indeed filed in Rome, but thanks to Kiko's network at the Curia, the case "disappeared", it was not until the visitators came to Guam earlier this year that the proper authorities got a hold of said file.
      On what my sources tell me in Rome, this created quite a stir, and questions are being asked to a particular Cardinal that ran interference.
      Do not worry (wink, wink) this case and Msgr James will be settled, and it will not be settled in the Archbishop's favor. There lies the issues Tim highlighted last week.
      Finally is Fr. Paul content in his current position at St Anthony? I think you know the answer to that one.
      Judging by how Fr Paul is greeted around the island on the rare occasions he goes out in public, I would venture to say that the attempts to destroy his reputation with the Catholic faithful on Guam have miserably failed.
      This is a typical case of boomerang effect for the Archbishop and his minions.
      Fishing can be fun indeed, but do not forget that fisherman along policeman is one of the most risky job in the world.

    2. Frenchie, I think you nailed it:

      "You sound like somebody who already knows all the answers, but feigns interest, in order to go on a fishing expedition."

      I also think you nailed it here:

      His case was indeed filed in Rome, but thanks to Kiko's network at the Curia, the case "disappeared", it was not until the visitators came to Guam earlier this year that the proper authorities got a hold of said file.

      There should have been two filings: 1) The filing of the appeal by Fr. Paul's advocate, and 2) the filing of the "Acts" against Fr. Paul by Apuron.

      There is no doubt that Fr. Paul's advocate filed the appeal as we have already seen the copy . And the fact that it never reached the Congregation is a testament to what you describe here. For #2, it is more than likely that Apuron was simply instructed by Gennarini not to file it - knowing that they were going to intercept Fr. Paul's filing in Rome.

      Amazing crap. Better than the Da Vinci Code.

      Disturbing account of preventing justice in the church. frightening Tim when you process the thought of Apuron. He contributed to preventing due process of Justice. On this point alone he should be removed and held up as a disgraced example to Guam.

  11. Suffering he caused others for many years is now being returned to him. You cannot live life destroying priests it will come back to you.

  12. Apuron, reflect on what you have done. This is your legacy! I would compare you with Judas and Benedict Arnold, but they might feel insulted, hurt even, to be compared with someone worse than they.

  13. It is obvious that comments being posted are not orchestrated, and are posted by different individuals should send a message to you Archbishop that the people have lost respect for you. Staying on will only harm the Office of your position. I think that for the good of your flock, you should resign. We all understand the pressure that you are under and no one can fault you for that and you will also bring an end of the rancor and division that now exists. I am praying that we get assigned a non-neo Bishop. Please Archbishop do the right thing.

  14. Trouble is should Apuron retire early the legacy he leaves will always be surrounded in clouds for years to come. However, we could just say he was used by NCW who divided our church but AAA had humility towards the end of his administration to retire early. This way he will save face a little.

    1. I don't know. I just googled an image for "frenchie" and I liked the pic so I used it. However, having met Frenchie, I'd say it's pretty close, thought the guy in the pic is a bit older. Sorry, Frenchie.

    2. Tim!!!, I know I am getting up there in age, but still .....he looks more like my grandpa in his 80s.
      I must say this nose looks a lot like mine. Oh! but I do not smoke!
      Thanks!!!
      PS: I guess in this last stretch of the week of the passion, being vain should be the last of my worries.

    3. I believe I did allow for the pic to account for an age difference in my comment :)
