THE ULTIMATE TREACHERY - Pt. 1




Archbishop Apuron hired a Denver law firm to render a favorable opinion on the status of the property currently occupied by the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and Blessed Diego Institute. He published excerpts from that opinion in the U Matuna on April 19, 2015. 

Why did Archbishop Apuron hire an expensive law firm, not licensed to practice in Guam, to do this?

Because he needed to.

Providentially, as I begin, Anonymous asks:


What's to hide?

Exactly! And apparently a lot.

The U Matuna Story (The truth about the property of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary - April 19, 2015), carried the following footnote : "The whole document can be consulted at the Chancery."

Our first clue that there is something "to hide" was that the full document was not posted on the Archdiocese's website for all to see. If the document had actually exonerated Archbishop Apuron's actions, we can be sure that he would have made sure everyone of us could read every word.

By comparison, Apuron printed every word of the decision by the LA Archdiocese regarding Fr. Wadeson, enabling Apuron's reinstatement of Wadeson, in the same issue of the U Matuna. And we all know how Apuron spared no space in publishing every jot and tittle he could publish about Msgr. James. In fact, both the statement about Wadeson and the infamous Internal Review report blasting Msgr. James are both prominently featured on the archdiocesan website under "Featured Posts"!

Our second clue that there is something "to hide" was when a CCOG attorney went to the Chancery to "consult" the document and was told that not only could he not have a copy, take no pictures, and take no notes, but that he would have to stand at the counter and read the 20 page document in the presence of chancery staff.

Our third clue that there is something "to hide" is that the document is no longer available to the public. The CCOG attorney was told on April 23 that the document would only be available until 4pm on April 24. This was not what was printed in the U Matuna, so we have no choice but to believe that Archbishop Apuron really did not think anyone would come to look at it, and when someone did, he hastily made the decision to pull it.

Obviously, the document by the Denver firm DOES NOT do what Archbishop Apuron wanted it to do. But what did he want it to do and why?

First, let me preface what I am about to share with my belief that Archbishop Apuron is NOT making any of these decisions. In fact, he has not been making decisions for many years. All decisions are either made by the Gennarini-Pius hierarchy or they must be submitted to them for approval, even who will be ordained!

Also, it is already a well-known fact that Archbishop Apuron does not write any of the letters he signs, at least not the official ones. It is also quite obvious that all his sermons are either written for him or downloaded verbatim from some online source. And of course for years he has not had an original word of spiritual counsel and direction in the U Matuna, his Sunday Gospel and Reflection being lifted directly from the book 365 Days with the Lord (which at least he gives credit to).

You may think that this is being derogatory towards the archbishop. In fact, it is being merciful. While he still must take responsibility for all that is being done in his name, I believe personally that he is not in his right mind and has been co-opted and controlled by Gennarini and Pius because they need a bishop they can use for their own ends.

However, because the archbishop is the archbishop, we will still have to name him as we proceed.

So what did Apuron want the Denver law firm to do and why?

ANSWER

He needed it to show that he did not alienate the property when he recorded the Deed Restriction, restricting the property for perpetual use for use only by RMS and Blessed Diego Institute.

Why did he need to do that?

ROUCO: KIKO'S FIRST PURCHASE

Cardinal Antonio María Rouco, former archbishop of Madrid, was Kiko's first "purchase".

Former archbishop sparks outrage over “scandalous” retirement plans

Here's an excerpt from a thorough article about how Kiko bought Rouco...and Apuron...and...

And above all, Kiko will provide Rouco with political influence. At a meeting in Rome in October 2007, during the beatification of 468 Religious assassinated in the Civil War, Arguello will propose to the Cardinal organising a great demonstration in Madrid ‘in defense of the Christian family’. There are barely three months left before the general elections. The polls predict a technical draw between the PSOE (Socialist Party of Spanish Workers) and the (right wing) Popular Party. Rouco is doubtful. It seems precipitate. Arguello reassures him, ‘Don Antonio, I will put 300,000 kikos in Columbus Place’. Rouco agrees. The demonstration takes place on October 30. Various Cardinals and 42 Bishops attend.

(Note: It is important to understand that when reading about Kiko's ideas that his apparent "conservatism" is simply a tool to power. He recognized that beginning with JPII that the popes wanted to restore Europe to its Christian roots, thus he posits himself as the champion of that cause. But when you get to what he really believes, especially about the eucharist, then we see that Kiko is no conservative at all. One look at his Domus Galilee will tell you that.)


FATHER EDSON F. COSTA

The Neocatehumenal system of distributing seminarians and priests throughout the world permits KIKO and his cronies to bypass many of the systems in place for finding these kind of guys before there are problems. One of those systems is the knowledge about a man from the people he grew up with and around. By taking these guys out of their home dioceses and shipping them around the world, that knowledge is lost - maybe on purpose. We are certainly beginning to see that here. Plus, why is the Archdiocese of Agana stealing vocations from other dioceses?

IT'S SO EASY REALLY


Yesterday, the PDN published a letter from Tim Perez attempting to convince us once again that all is right with the Neocatechumenal Way. He begins his letter by saying:
"It is so easy, really. We Catholics follow what the pope says."
Let's review.

MORE INSULTS FROM ADRIAN

The following notice was sent to all the pastors yesterday by Fr. Adrian Cristobal. I have inserted a few comments [in red].

SO GET THIS

If you want to see the report by the Denver law firm on the so-called "truth" about the RMS property:
  1. You have to stand at the counter and read it, no sitting allowed (it's 20 pages long).
  2. You cannot take notes.
  3. You cannot take pictures.
  4. You cannot have a copy made.
Oh, and by the way, yesterday was the last day you could see it.

So if Archbishop Apuron is so anxious to prove that he did nothing criminal - legally or canonically - in deeding control of the property to RMS, why hide it like this and make it difficult for anyone to review especially after spending what is probably a huge amount of money on the opinion?

Well, we know why, don't we.

Dear Cardinal Filoni:

This archbishop continues to lie to us, lie to us, lie to us. And since he won't let us see the report, maybe he'll let you. Ask for it. No, demand it. You will see that it was NOT a legal opinion - a real one - at all.

And we shall shortly prove it.

St. Thomas Aquinas High will close its doors after summer session

St. Thomas Aquinas High School, well-known for its academic strength to prepare students for college, will close its doors for good after the summer session, the school has confirmed. "The Archdiocese of Agana has informed St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School that it will officially close its doors after its summer session this school year," Principal Pilar Perez Williams stated.

MEANWHILE, PIZZA AND TRAVEL FOR THE RMS BOYS


Yesterday, St. Thomas Aquinas Highs School parents and students began receiving word from the school's principal that the school will close at the end of next month. 

The reported reason is not enough enrollment and revenue.

Understand that every dollar we give to Apuron's "children" over at RMS is a dollar we don't have to give to our own parishes, schools, and the future of our own children.

BARF!

There is absolutely ZERO reason for local church leaders to get into any public discussion or demonstration about the same-sex issue right now. By the end of June, the Supreme Court will have decided the issue and there is not a thing we can do it about it civilly.

There is no legislation before the people. There is no vote. There is no reason to lobby senators this way or that. The only person who can do anything one way or the other immediately would be Governor Calvo and I'm pretty sure he is not stupid enough to let himself be bullied into doing something that will have no meaning in less than a few weeks. 

REVENGE

Make no mistake. AAA is out for revenge. You will hear about it soon. Maybe even tonight. Check the news.

WHAT THE U MATUNA DID NOT TELL US

In the U Matuna for Sunday, April 19, 2015 we are told that if we want to see the Civil Law Report by the Denver law firm of Lewis Roca Rothgerber LLP regarding "the truth about the property of Redemptoris Mater Seminary" that "The whole document can be consulted at the Chancery." 

What the U Matuna did not tell us is that it can only be consulted until tomorrow, April 24. 

The document is 20 pages long and cannot be duplicated, copied, videographed, photographed, etc., and can only be reviewed in the presence of the Chancery staff.

How's that for "dispelling groundless rumors" as the archbishop claims we are spreading.

P.S. Archbishop. It is illegal for a law firm not licensed to practice law in the Territory of Guam to advise a corporate sole incorporated in the Territory of Guam regarding the conveyance of Guam real property. It is also an ethics violation. 

But then, we're quite used to those by now.

THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT


There have been several comments related to homosexuality. Some I have published, others I have held as I could see they could be hurtful as well as wrong. 

While our church leaders seem to flounder about when all they need to do is quote the Catechism, let us not make the same mistake by similarly floundering about with our own ideas of what the Church teaches or what we would like it to teach. 

Instead, let us carefully read EXACTLY what the Church teaches as written in the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

From Teri Untalan:

"We must continue to put on our armor to fight and pray for our Church. Daily prayer service outside the Cathedral is happening Monday to Friday at 5:15 pm. Do you have a prayer group willing to take on one day during the week to lead the rosary and any other prayers you wish to pray?

Our constant presence will be a sign that we Catholics mean business. Get your group of two or more and let us storm heaven at the front of the Cathedral Basilica. One day a week. Is that too much to ask in support of our Mother Church on Guam?"

HOW SAD

Dear Archbishop Apuron,

In your answers to the Associated Press, you were quoted as referring to homosexual acts as "intrinsically a moral evil."

Archbishop, this is why I have persistently implored you to do NOTHING more than to quote the Catechism of the Catholic Church. 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church does NOT label homosexual acts as intrinsically EVIL. The Catechism of the Catholic Church says:
"homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." (CCC 2357)
How sad that as an archbishop you do not know this. 


Sincerely,


JungleWatch


P.S. You and I and the real author know that you didn't write a word of this...which is evidence of the much greater problem.

SMH

So you guys didn't take my advice. I told you they were baiting you. Damn it. At least quote the freaking Catechism instead of talking like this is all your idea. You deserve to be drug through the mud when you run your mouth like this, especially when one of your boys just got caught by the cops with his head in a place it shouldn't have been. WTH!

PLEASE ADVISE AT SOONEST


DEAR SENATORS

Dear Senators,

In 1857, Supreme Court Chief Justice, Roger B. Taney, wrote that all black people are:
"beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect."
The case was (Dred) Scott v. Sandford. And the court's decision (7-2) was supposed to be the last word on the slavery question. The court had spoken. One race could own another.

Thank God we had lawmakers and civic leaders back then that didn't say what some of your are saying:
"The courts have already made a ruling on this issue and we can't pick and choose when to follow the orders of the court, so let's comply and get back to work." - Senator Michael San Nicholas. Guam Pacific Daily News. April 20, 2015
And P.S. If you believe (as some of you are also saying) that you cannot let your religious (Catholic) views influence your civic decisions, then STOP using Catholic events (funerals, etc.) to campaign.

LATEST FROM THE ROMAN UNDERGROUND

It seems Luis was ordered to be removed from Guam by Pius upon the orders of the New Jersey couple. This is the reason why Apuron cannot say when he will return. Pius was a angry with the statements that Luis wanted to even return to Guam. It seems Pius is the one wanting Luis to go away and be forgotten. 

DO YOU WANT TO TELL PEOPLE THE REST OF THE STORY...OR WILL YOU?

In today's U Matuna, the official newspaper for the Archdiocese of Agana, there is a front page article entitled "The truth about the property of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary."

The article attempts to persuade us that the property remains fully in Archbishop Apuron's control and that he did nothing wrong when he restricted the use of the property. It attempts to do this by presenting excerpts from the following:
  1. The Ownership Report
  2. The Legal Opinion
  3. The opinion of the Pontifical Council of Legislative Text
Let's take each one.

The Ownership Report
The article states that the Ownership Report, as completed in 2014 by Pacific American Title, "confirms that the lots on which the seminary sits, identifies the owner as the Archbishop of Agana. Therefore, contrary to rumors, the title deed has always remained in the hands of the Archdiocese."

Two points:

One
Yes, the title deed remains in the hands of the Archdiocese, BUT only thanks to the people Archbishop Apuron fired from the previous Archdiocesan Finance Council: Richard Untalan, Joseph Rivera, Msgr. James Benavente, and Sr. Stephen Torres, RSM. Let us recall that in 2011 Archbishop Apuron had initially attempted to convey the title outright to RMS as evidenced by this letter written in September of 2011 advising the rector of RMS of the decision by the AFC to deny the conveyance of title to RMS.

Two
The issue is not who owns the property. We already knew that from doing our own title search which we posted here back on March 27. The issue is not who owns the property but WHO controls it. You can have title to a property, but if you assign control of that property to someone else it no longer has any value as an asset for the duration of the assignment. 

The Legal Opinion
The article includes portions of a legal opinion by a Denver law firm assuring us that Archbishop Apuron:
  1. "retains substantial authority" over RMS
  2.  in restricting use of the property to RMS was an action "consistent with canon law"
Four points:

One
So a Denver law firm is practicing law on Guam. That's illegal.

Two
Why didn't Apuron simply get the (probably free) opinion of his own legal counsel? The man who actually put both the deal together to acquire the property and the RMS corporation itself? Well, we know why. Because the legal counsel had already given his opinion and it wasn't the one Apuron wanted.

Three
Apuron only posts portions of the opinion. Really? Space and cost were no object when he was publishing, week after week, all the supposed crimes of Msgr. James. But here we are given the few tidbits that he wants us to read and then tells us if we want to see the rest we have to come to the chancery.

Four
The bottom line issue is whether or not a lending institution would consider the property, given the restriction, an asset of the Archdiocese of Agana. In arguing only for the view that the archbishop retains "substantial authority" over RMS, the report appears to admit that the property has no current value to the Archdiocese of Agana, and would only have value if the Archbishop assigns it back. In short, the patrimony of the Archdiocese of Agana is significantly harmed, which is is why then apostolic delegate, Archbishop Balvo, told Apuron in 2012 that in this matter he is not free to do as he pleases. 

The opinion of the Pontifical Council of Legislative Text
The article references a Canon Law Report which supposedly claims that the deed restriction did not alienate the property. 

Two points:

One
Hmmm. There is no footnote to this report (as there is for the law firm's opinion). Why not publish the "report"?

Two
The "report" references the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts and we are told that it is the highest authority for interpreting the laws of the Church. Wonderful. But said Pontifical Council has ZERO authority for interpreting the laws of Guam, which actually govern the legal status of that property (and, by the way, neither does the Denver law firm that Apuron hired). So what a bunch of b.s. 

Some other thoughts:

One
If there was nothing wrong with what the Archbishop did, then why did he hide it? Attached to the Deed Restriction is a Decree of Designation. A Decree is a public announcement. Yet not only did Apuron NEVER announce the designation, he didn't even tell the members of his own finance council. In fact, he didn't tell anyone but his neo buddies. And what's more, after restricting the property he went on to chide, insult, berate, and ultimately fire the members of the finance council who opposed him. 

Two
The idea that Archbishop Apuron is in control of anything is a joke. Even if the legal opinion is right and the archbishop "retains substantial authority". It does not account for WHO "retains substantial authority" over him. And this is the root of the problem. Apuron will obey his neo masters. They will tell him NEVER to give back the property to the Archdiocese of Agana and he will obey. 

Three
By the way, Archbishop, is this why you have been "raising money"? How much of our money did you use on this very expensive law firm? Or was that Kimchee's (parents') money that you bilked her out of? What did you do, promise her more indulgences? She talks, you know, a lot! The other day she was bragging to a whole table at a hotel restaurant about how much money she gave you. She even said it was for "an American lawyer."

P.S. Tell Wadeson to say he's innocent, not just that the charges were "unfounded."

P.P.S. BTW, Archbishop, do you recognize these words:
"Therefore we cannot sign the letter you drafted because it is not true." 
I have the letter. Do you want me to tell people the rest of the story...or will you?





OKAY

Okay, Archbishop, you have forced me to show it. And I will.

TODAY'S PDN

Archbishop must be transparent

DON'T GO THERE


The archdiocese has called a meeting of the clergy to discuss how to respond to the local call for the legalization of same-sex marriage.

May I remind the Catholic leadership that their response last time around was such an utter failure that it led to a belief that Archbishop Apuron had called for the beheading of homosexuals and a much longer fight than was necessary. 

The Catholic leadership knows exactly to what I refer. For the rest of you, just google the words "apuron homosexual muslim". 

So I am going to suggest EXACTLY what I suggested the last time around and was completely ignored - as I probably will be this time. Here it is. Ready?

KIKO IS IN GOOD COMPANY

In May of 2009, the University of Notre Dame, the United States' most prestigious Catholic university, gave the most pro-abortion president in history an honorary degree. Kiko is in good company.

SO SHUT UP

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "STILL MORE LIES":
Boo-hoo Pius is being persecuted. Boo-hoo people are saying mean truths about him. Boo-hoo persecution. 
To Pius and his fellow kiko's. Here's what real persecution looks like. So shut up.


WHAT TO DO ABOUT SAME-SEX MARRIAGE


Someone messaged me the other day and asked if I was going to "do anything" about same-sex marriage.

The person is probably asking me because of the role I played a few years ago engaging the same-sex union bill back in 2009.

My answer is yes. And here it is.

RAISING MONEY?

What for? Rome already told him he couldn't sue. Hush money? For the Camacho thing? Heard Cashee was all tapped out. Mommy and Daddy saying no more cashee? That means no more cashee in envelopees. JPII Malojloj ready to crashee. Don't think Cashee will bail it out-ee like RMS-ee.

FROM THE ROMAN UNDERGROUND


So just to let you know that we know. It was "rumored" that AAA was looking into "suing". 

Suing who? 

Well we know that he already threatened to "sue" John Toves, though not by name. Laughably, AAA threatened to sue to "protect the church". NOT. We also suspect he wants to sue CCOG and most likely me as well. 

However, according to the report from the Roman Underground, AAA was told by Congregation bosses that he wasn't going to sue anybody.

Having learned this, I spoke to some of the guys who REALLY know what's going on and they said "bring it on." In their view a lawsuit by Apuron would mean a quick end to both Apuron and the NCW since all would be exposed under penalty of perjury.

Note to Congregation bosses: If you're having trouble trying to figure out what to do it is because you haven't figured out yet that Apuron is a complete puppet in the hands of his neocatechumenal masters. I told you this at our meeting. He has ZERO control. Every thought, word, and deed is scripted for him. 

This is why we really would like a law suit. We would finally get past Apuron and to the real bad guys who run this place. However, we prefer that you just take care of this asap. 

Don't worry. There won't be dancing in the streets. But there will soon be signs:

SIMPLY MORE LIES AND MORE LIES

Let's compare what Archbishop Apuron said about Fr. Wadeson versus what the Archdiocese of Los Angeles really said. First, let's read the two statements:
STATEMENT FROM THE ARCHDIOCESE OF AGANA

On April 10, 2015 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles in its weekly diocesan newspaper, The Tidings, published a report stating the Archdiocese of Los Angeles had conducted a thorough re-examination of the whole issue concerning the alleged accusations against Father John H. Wadeson. The Tidings made the announcement in its print edition.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry showing that all the rumors and alleged calumnies against him were unfounded.

The Archdiocese of Agana therefore announces that Fr. John Wadeson has been reinstated fully to public ministry according to a decree dated April 13, 2015.

SNAP RESPONDS

Guam’s Wadeson reinstated

KUAM announced today that former LA priest John Wadeson has been reinstated in the Archdiocese of Agana (Guam).
I have written about Wadeson in the past. According to the Los Angeles Archdiocese, he was twice accused of sexually abusing children and had been banned from working as a priest there.
According to a statement published in The Tidings (the Archdiocese of LA Newspaper), the LA Archdiocese did a investigation and “concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry.”
This decision was based on the fact there has never been a settlement paid on an abuse case against Wadeson. According to the statement, when the allegations first arose, the Society of the Divine Word (the order to which Wadeson belonged) investigated the claims and found them “unverified.”
Here are my issues:
  • According to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and every other diocese across the US, the payment of a settlement does NOT equate implied guilt on the behalf of the accused. If this were the case, former San Diego Bishop Robert Brom would have been removed years ago. (He paid a former seminarian a confidential $250,000 settlement for allegedly coercing the victim into sex)
  • Why didn’t Wadeson do something immediately when the LA Archdiocese published reports that he was twice accused? If in the same position, I would do everything in my power to clear my name immediately. And I would be public about it to ensure that I was adhering to transparency.
  • What does “unverified” mean? That there was only one victim? There were no witnesses? What is a “verified” allegation?
And probably the most troublesome:
The Archdiocese of Los Angeles has concluded that there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry showing that all the rumors and alleged calumnies against him were unfounded.
Rumors and calumnies? It was not a rumor that LA had said he was twice-accused, nor was it a rumor that they had banned him. But by making such a bile-infused statement, Apuron is attempting to silence and shame victims and whistleblowers by labeling them sinners and rumor-mongers.
As I have reiterated numerous times, the clergy sex abuse scandal is not about abuse. It’s about cover-up and how bishops handle allegations of abuse, perpetrators and victims.
Whether or not Wadeson is guilty, the most troubling aspect of this case is how Apuron has used it to silence victims, divide the faithful, bully whistleblowers, and shelter secrets.

KUAM is reporting today that Archbishop Apuron has restored Fr. John Wadeson to ministry in the Archdiocese of Agana after an investigation by the Los Angeles Archdiocese concluded that "there is no reason to preclude Father Wadeson from serving in priestly ministry."

Congratulations, Fr. Wadeson, and you're welcome. It appears you took my advice when I wrote on July 25, 2014:
Now, get down to business, clear your name with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, and publish the record exonerating you of all charges.

KIKO ON DISPLAY

If you want to know what Kiko really believes and teaches about what we "normal people" call the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, here it is, on full display:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "DIVERGENCE FROM CATHOLIC DOCTRINE IN THE NEOCATECH...":

Dear RYaeger, I do not know about anyone who was "hurt" by liturgy. Liturgy is a business of the clergy and not the flock. Only a few select nerds think it is their duty to police others over liturgy, but normal people don't really care. This is a fact of life.

You have to be weak and very insecure in your faith if you overemphasize some formal features over spiritual content. Our Christian brothers in many other denominations do not have any trouble to follow their own liturgies which is pretty much distinct from the Catholic liturgy. Do you thing they are hurt and suffering? Honestly, I don't think so. The tent of God is spacious enough to give room for liturgical variations without compromising the faith in Christ.

So take courage the Lord is good.

Let's compare this KIKO-THINK to what the Church, the real one, actually teaches:
