WHAT ABOUT THE "NEW" AFC?
As we know, Archbishop Apuron terminated the four members of the AFC who opposed his desire to convey the title of the old Accion Hotel property to RMS. Unbeknownst to them at the time they were terminated (January 2012), Archbishop Apuron had cleverly found a way to give RMS control of the property forever (November 2011).
Because the transaction involved an archdiocesan asset over 2 million dollars, Archbishop Apuron was required to get the approval of the AFC. Not getting that approval he fired them and did what he wanted to do anyway.
But then he replaced the four fired members with four new members: Danny Quichocho, Sonny Ada, John Weisenberger, and Marilyn Megofna.
One would assume that they probably called the Archbishop to account on this as soon as they learned of the Deed Restriction which gave RMS control of the property in perpetuity. However, we have heard nothing, so we have to question.
On a related note, due to the value of the property the deed restriction also required an okay from the Vatican. Archbishop Apuron skipped that one too. He thought he'd get away with it by maintaining that he remained the title holder. But it doesn't matter if he's the title holder if he has deeded away control of the property, and in this case he deeded it away forever.
And Rome knows this.
So what is Archbishop Apuron to do?
For many months the ding dongs at the other blog have been giving us a clue by telling us that the donor of the two million bucks used to purchase the property intended that it be used for the Neocatechumenal Way. They need to say this to prop up what the Archbishop knows he needs to concoct.
And here it is:
We happen to know that no mention of the Neocatechumenal Way or Redemptoris Mater Seminary or the Blessed Diego Institute was made by the donor, only the words "seminary of the Archdiocese of Agana." And of course this was the lie that we were told for 15 years. We really thought that it was a diocesan seminary which would train diocesan priests, not just priests "according to the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way" as its Articles of Incorporation state.
But now the Archbishop is caught in a real Catch 22. In order for him not to get in trouble with Rome, he has to try to get the donor to say that he/she gave the money not for the purpose of a seminary for the Archdiocese of Agana, but specifically for the Redemptoris Mater Seminary which is a NCW entity.
If he succeeds in concocting this, then he will automatically incriminate himself as such a statement would verify that he has lied to us for 15 years about the real purpose of the seminary.
Time to retire, Archbishop. Seriously. Take the "envelopee" with the "cashee" and go. (Wink)
P.S. Take Pius. He got you into this mess. BTW, he needs to be more careful with his letters, especially the ones you supposedly write. Peace.
