Vicar General: Msgr. David C. Quitugua (Note: Msgr. David I. A. Quitugua is the pastor of Ordot church. He is NOT the Vicar General.)
The letter, though dated November 16, 2011, was not delivered to Mr. Untalan's office until November 25, 2011. In the meanwhile, unbeknownst to Richard Untalan and the AFC, Apuron, three days prior to delivering the letter, had conveyed complete control of The Property to RMS on November 22, 2011 through a Deed of Restriction.
On the morning of the meeting, the Vicar General, knowing full well that the deed restricting use of The Property to RMS forever (for perpetual use) had already been recorded with Land Management, chastised the AFC for placing the item on the agenda:
We must remember that the AFC had NO knowledge that The Property had already been restricted, but the Vicar General did. All the Vicar General had to do was to advise the AFC that the deed had already been recorded and that there was no need to discuss the item.
BUT HE DID NOT!
Instead, the Vicar General accuses the AFC of the most vile things: "a vulnus towards the bishop", "disrespect towards his person", and harming "the dignity of the Ordinary." In addition, he blatantly violates church law by telling the AFC that their role is only consultative and "not binding", when, in matters of property of this value, church law REQUIRES the consent of the AFC. This was confirmed by a subsequent letter from the Apostolic Delegate to Apuron:
Mr. Untalan was surprised at the vicious attack from the Vicar General and wrote him saying so:
At this point, it does not matter whether what Apuron did was legit or not (it wasn't - as the bronze shoe will show us). What matters is that Apuron and the Vicar General are exposed as worse than liars: attacking a man to hide their corruption, subterfuge, and lies.
And using their authority in the Church to do it makes their attack an act of mind-blowing evil.
The AFC under Mr. Untalan never met again. On January 11, 2012, Apuron terminated the service of the four members of the AFC who had voted against giving The Property to RMS (Richard Untalan, Msgr. James Benavente, Sr. Mary Stephen Torres, RSM, and Joseph Rivera).
The Property is firmly in the control of RMS. Forever. Unless...unless, the bronze shoe fits.
We will soon find out.
P.S. RMS board members and new members of the AFC. Are you ready?
