Apuron and his handlers must have known that the Deed Restriction, recorded secretly with Land Management on November 22, 2011, could not be kept a secret forever.
Things were getting hot. In late 2013, I had exposed the fact that RMS was not only not forming diocesan priests as we were told it was, it was never intended to: it's Articles of Incorporation stating specifically that RMS existed to form priests according to "the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way" which is oriented towards breaking parishes into small communities.
Comically, Apuron admitted this was the truth by hurriedly establishing another seminary that is supposed to do what RMS said it did, but never did: form diocesan priests. But of course this second seminary was nothing but a ruse as well, and has proceeded to ruin even more lives.
Throughout 2014, through this blog, we kept the pressure on and by the end of 2014, Apuron was desperate. In addition to the millions donated by the original donor, many more millions had been raised from Guam Catholics over several years in support of the seminary for what they thought was its mission.
Once the Catholic public learned the truth about RMS, there was a backlash: a campaign to STOP THE MONEY. However, JungleWatch cannot take all the credit for the backlash. Most of the credit goes to Apuron, who, in an effort to squash us, began rabidly ordaining extremely ill-formed and unqualified presbyters from RMS, who, quite without the help of JungleWatch, proceeded to piss off the people who had been paying their way for more than a decade.
Meanwhile, JungleWatch began exposing the possibility that Apuron had violated church law by deeding the property to RMS. We did not know yet about the Deed Restriction, but there was plenty of evidence that something untoward had happened, especially the extremely ill treatment of Richard Untalan and the other members of the former finance council.
By December of 2014, Apuron must have been feeling the heat because he wrote a letter to a certain person in St. Louis stating (names are left out):
"I am writing this letter to assure you...and your very generous benefactors who will always remain anonymous* that the donation given to the Archdiocese of Agana when the former Accion Hotel in Yona, previously owned by a Japanese Company was bought by the Archdiocese of Agana in which the Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Seminary of Guam has, is and continues to be used as a seminary, but, in title belongs to the Archdiocese of Agana."
* The reason he says the donor will remain anonymous is because the anonymity of the donor was a condition of the donation. However, Apuron had already revealed the source of the donation almost immediately after it was received, causing serious financial harm to those who had procured the donation because their regular donors believed that their donations had been abused.
First, why is Apuron writing to the benefactor (actually the benefactor's representative) TWELVE years later to assure the benefactor that the donation was used for what it was intended (the donation was given in 2002)?
Was it perhaps, like Poe's "Telltale Heart", that the secret Deed Restriction was ticking louder and louder in Apuron's conscience? After all, to cover his trail, he had viciously dismissed four people who had served him faithfully and well for many years, he had accused Mr. Untalan of "nonsense", and had sicked his sick Vicar General after him to accuse him of a "vulnus", which was a veiled threat of excommunication.
And then came JungleWatch, with exposure after exposure. The ticking got louder and louder. TICK, TICK, TICK TICK!
