THE BRONZE SHOE - AND PIUS IS A LIAR

Pontius Pius
Now that we have an Opinion of Counsel regarding the TRUTH about RMS, let us revisit the lies told by Fr. Pius to the Pacific Daily News on August 2, 2014. (The full article is no longer freely available on the PDN but fortunately "The Diana" has copied the lies for us here.) I have indicated each point I wish to address with a number in parentheses.
PDN: Did the Neocatechumenal Way attempt to influence the transfer of title to the former Accion Hotel property in Yona from the Archdiocese of Guam to an entity whose officers are members of the Neocatechumenal Way? 
PIUS: Actually it is the other way around. The purchase of the Accion Hotel was proposed by the Neocatechumenal Way to the archbishop, (1) because in order to start the seminary and an institute, there was a need for rooms for 30 to 40 seminarians, 10 faculty professors, four classrooms, a library for 20,000 volumes, a chapel. The money for the purchase of the hotel was donated to the archdiocese by an off-island benefactor who offered it with the explicit intention of erecting the seminary and the theological institute. (2) The previous owner of the hotel sold it for just $1.9 million with the proviso that the building be used as an educational facility. Actually, the archdiocese did not put down a penny. 
Regarding the transfer of the title, the legal adviser of the archdiocese, five years ago, asked that the title be transferred to the Redemptoris Mater Corp. to respect the intention of the donor and to safeguard the property. (3) This corporation is a 'corporation sole' where there is only one member, namely the archbishop, who has all power. (4) He is assisted by a board of directors who (oversees) the daily administration. The only member, namely the archbishop, chooses all directors. Then there is a board of guarantors that guarantees that the corporation follows the original purpose for which it was created. The Archbishop chooses, confirms, or dismisses freely these guarantors. (5)


1. The purchase of the Accion Hotel was proposed by the Neocatechumenal Way to the archbishop.

As a real estate agent, I happen to know the agents who were involved with the transaction. It was they who brought the opportunity to purchase the property to the attention of the archdiocese. Only once the opportunity was made known to the archdiocese did Gennarini and Pius see their opportunity to get their greedy mitts on this valuable property.

2. The money for the purchase of the hotel was donated to the archdiocese by an off-island benefactor who offered it with the explicit intention of erecting the seminary and the theological institute. 

As we have thoroughly demonstrated (in The Ultimate Treachery), the donor, through a representative, refused to sign a letter written by Apuron saying that the money was given with the  "explicit intention of erecting the seminary and the theological institute."  

Note that Pius uses the definite article THE in "the seminary", a direct reference to RMS. In fact the donor only mentions "a seminary" in the letter of intent. There was no need to spell it out. The donor had been approached with the proposal to assist in the purchasing of a "defunct hotel" for the purpose of erecting a seminary FOR the Archdiocese of Agana. 

The only possible intent, since the donor tells us he/she "never heard" of the Neocatechumenal Way or the Redemptoris Mater Seminary, was for a diocesan seminary - which RMS is NOT (i.e. not established to form priests specifically for the diocesan priesthood, but as per its Articles, only "according the life and practice of the neocatechumenal way."


Let's review. On January 29, 2015, after we discovered the secretly recorded deed and after Apuron was confronted on it by the Apostolic Visitors earlier that month, Apuron, in a desperate attempt to cover his lies, asks the donor's representative to lie for him. He writes:
"May I ask a favor...send me a letter of support for the donation made by your donors and benefactors to the Archdiocese of Agana in 2003 for the purchase of the Accion Hotel for the Archdiocese of Agana for the purpose of housing the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and the Theological Institute for the formation of priests."

On February 2, 2015, the donor's representative writes back:
Dear Archbishop Apuron, in 2003 when the said "funds" were donated, we had absolutely no knowledge of these entities (like Redemptoris Mater Seminary, the Neo-catechumenal Way, or the Theological Institute for the formation of priests), not to speak of any specific intention whatsoever to relate this donation to them. In fact, we did not even know of these lay organizations, so naturally we could not direct anything to them by name. It was our sole intention to help the people of Guam to provide a property for a seminary for the formation of priests for the Church in Guam. At that time, in 2003, we were made aware of the burden you were carrying in regard to the purchase of this property for a seminary. It was our desire to help relieve you of this concern and enable the Archdiocese to conduct a seminary in the former hotel. This was our intent. It was not our intent that the Archdiocese place on the hotel property, purchased with our donation, a deed restriction, in perpetuity, whereby the property is now dedicated to be used only for the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and Theological Institute. As a result, we felt "very ill at ease" when we came to know about the "Deed Restriction" which gives the Redemptoris Mater Seminary control of the said Property in "perpetuity". The phrase, "in perpetuity" implies that the seminary now belongs to the Neocatechumenal Way Christians, which is the only group permitted to use the property now or in the future. 
In conclusion, dear Archbishop Apuron, I cannot sign the letter your drafted for me because it would not in fact be truthful. We are keeping you, the seminarians and all the people of Guam very much in our prayers. May the Spirit of love bring peace and unity to all. Sincerely in Christ, TDR.
So after reading the exact words of the donor's representative, read Pius' lying words again:
"The money for the purchase of the hotel was donated to the archdiocese by an off-island benefactor who offered it with the explicit intention of erecting the seminary and the theological institute." 
Note: We are not permitted to post the original copy of this letter on our blog. However, we can post the exact words here with confidence and claim that this is the truth because we know Rome has a copy of the original, and so does Archbishop Apuron. And if he wishes to disprove what we say here he has only to show us a signed copy of the letter stating the opposite of what we quote. He can't.

3. This corporation is a 'corporation sole' where there is only one member, namely the archbishop, who has all power. 

A "corporation sole" is a specific form of corporate governance usually limited to hierarchical churches where there is a line of succession. Corporate soles do not have a board of directors, officers, stock, by-laws, official minutes or a standard corporate name ("incorporated" or "limited").

The Archdiocese of Agana is a "corporate sole". RMS is not. Here is a copy of the Articles of Incorporation for the Archdiocese of Agana showing the passing (by an amendment) of the Archdiocese of Agana from the control of Archbishop Flores to his successor, Apuron. Notice, there is no designation of a Board of Directors because a Corporation Sole does not have a Board of Directors. RMS has a Board of Directors because it is NOT a corporate sole, it is a registered non-profit corporation in the Territory of Guam with the required Board of Directors.

Quoting 18 GCS § 2205 (Guam law), Attorney Bronze writes:
"...the corporate powers of all corporations formed under this Part, shall be exercised, all business of such corporations, and all property of such corporations controlled and held by a board of not less than 3 and nor more than 11 directors to be elected from among the holders of stock or where there is no stock from members of the corporation."
So while Pius lies to us and tells us that the archbishop "has all the power", Guam law tells us that it is the Directors who have all the power to exercise and control the business of a corporation. Apuron is one of the Directors, but as per the RMS annual report for 2014, he is only one of five votes. And as the sole member, his only power is to appoint the board. According to Guam law, as a member, even a sole member, he has NO POWER to manage the affairs of the corporation.

4. Then there is a board of guarantors that guarantees that the corporation follows the original purpose for which it was created. The Archbishop chooses, confirms, or dismisses freely these guarantors.  

This is a real laugher of a lie, and Pius know he's lying. He knows he's lying because he and Gennarini are the architects of RMS and as Attorney Bronze tells us:
"...the drafter of these organizational documents purposely and deliberately designed the structure of the organization so that the Board of Guarantors shall have veto power over all decisions including the decisions of the archbishop and his successors."
Notice that Pius only tells us that the Board of Guarantors "guarantees that the corporation follows the original purpose for which it was created." He leaves out the fact that the same provision includes "veto power over all decisions including the decisions of the archbishop and his successors." This is absolute power over everything. 


And saying that that "the Archbishop chooses, confirms, or dismisses freely these guarantors" is the MOST SHAMEFUL LIE OF ALL, and Pius KNOW THIS! Attorney Bronze shows us that the Board of Guarantors is:
  • unusual
  • separate
  • unelected, and...
  • UN-REMOVABLE

"Thus, we are faced with the unusual practice of a separate, unelected, and un-removable board having veto power over a board of directors, the officers, and the sole member, the Archbishop of Agana and his successors."
So what do we do about this impostor who so blatantly lies to protect his power and his source of funding to galavant about the world and abuse people?

First, in order to protect yourselves, your families and those you care about, expose him as the LIAR that he is. 

Second, dry up his source of funding - which is the money you give to your parishes, siphoned off by the archbishop to fund Pius and his cronies.

Third, send that money to the CCOG so that they will have the funding to take whatever course of action is necessary to hold Pius and his puppets civilly accountable for the harm they have perpetrated on the faithful of this archdiocese. 

See the top right sidebar for instructions on how to support the CCOG.

  1. Reading the manipulations, lies and a blatant and shameful attempt by the Archbishop to have the gall to ask the donor of all people to lie so that he could protect himself from Rome is pure evil. How does someone in his position knowing ask a clergy to lie so that he can justify the theft of the property to Rome. Conduct truly unbecoming a representative of Jesus Christ. Loyalty and fear of Kiko is the only reason that would make sense to me; but why Archbishop do you owe more loyalty to Kiko than to Pope Francis. What hold does this man have over you??? You and Pius truly have set a bad example to the world and all of which is documented in black and white. This is why, we do not want the influence of Neo Priest in our parishes, because the ends justifies the means in carrying out the wishes of Kiko and his cohorts. Shameful, truly shameful. We do not take pleasure in the mess, you have created for you and also for us. I only wish you do the only decent thing left to do and that is for you and Pius to both step down.

    1. "but why Archbishop do you owe more loyalty to Kiko than to Pope Francis. What hold does this man have over you???"

      It is what keeps most in the NCW. It's called the 2nd Scrutiny Anchor. For clarity: Catholics go to a confessor, their priest, to confess their sins. This absolution of these sins within the confines of receiving the sacrament of reconciliation also means that the priest is bound to never disclose your confessed sins, nor is he permitted to even bring it up to you unsolicited. In fact, a priest is not even allowed to acknowledge if you have been to him for confession or not.
      However, these merits of the Sacrament of Reconciliation are not binding during the 2nd scrutiny. Even though the process of regurgitating old sin is sold as something similar, as you, as instructed, dredge up your deepest and darkest sins to a panel that includes Fr. Pius, Patricia Cottman and other catechists, and in front of crowd that includes your community, nobody is bound to the silence and discretion that our priests are in transmitting the true Sacrament of Confession.
      Thus, through the revealing of your deepest darkest sins (which usually have been already absolved and not necessary to revisit in this manner for salvation) you have created an "anchor" for the NCW to "chain" you to them in order to keep you from straying.

      Others that have left the NCW beyond the 2nd scrutinies have had their dredged up sins held over their heads and even revealed to others who were not present at that 2nd scrutiny in attempts to intimidate and shame them in remaining in community. It is a common revelation from those who have had the courage to flee the NCW and speak about their harrowing experiences in trying to separate themselves from community, and the betrayal they experienced in having to be forced to recall, during this intimidation tactic, what they revealed during their 2nd scrutiny.

    2. Perhaps Apuron's echoes about his sins can and will be used against him if he doesn't obey his Neo masters.

    3. You are absolutely right Jose. And, just to add to the psychological manipulation, you are also required to give up your "treasure", and to pay your tenth. So, not only are you violated at this step, you are convinced to "value" it (as people tend to value something according to the cost).

  2. Apuron, step down or we will do it for you. You have earned, not our respect and loyalty but, our contempt for your lies and disrespect for the dignity of others. We have seen to what extent you were willing to sell off Church property and squander our hard-earned money to support your whims and caprices! We are angry, yes we are, because we expected so much more from a cleric and a church official. You, Apuron, are the problem. You have left us to navigate and find the truth ourselves, thanks to the help of people diligent and caring enough to stand up to your malicious and disingenuous manipulations. You are no leader, you do not inspire confidence any longer. You and your cohorts need to take a deep extended time of prayerful discernment to think about the damages you have inflicted on us, and how you have all strayed from the simple response to God's powerful invitation to make you His instruments for the kingdom.

  3. I strongly recommend a large protest inside and outside the Agana Cathedral Basilica during the next NEO/NCW Cult ordination..... enough is enough..... We have fully qualified NON-NEO priests (Very Reverend Monsignor James, Reverend Father Paul and Reverend Father Efren; all have proven leadership while serving as pastors in the past) that this NEO CULT Chief sitting in the Chair of Peter will never permit them to serve as pastors. Rise up Guam and get back your church... show you care by stopping your support to any church that has a NEO Cult Presbyter assigned to include the Cathedral Basilica and Saint Anthony's Church.

    At last you all see the Shocking truth of tony and Pius. Asking the donar to sign letters so tony could protect himself from the authority of Rome.. This alone is enough to show character values do not exist. There life is built on a sham to fool the good people of Guam for financial gain. As for Pius he is is a total disgrace to the Catholic church.

    3. Mr. Apuron had reasons to provide NCW safe haven in state of Guam.

      Should an intended law suit be filled against his person the NCW will provide a safety net for him. In return for this Mr. Apuron was asked to avail his church powers to NCW by ordaining priests and opening up his geographical location for strategic management of the NCW. They both used each other for personal motives.

    4. Psychological abuse 12.45 pm is concerning. Thin line between psychological abuse /blackmail. So called sins of individuals shared in open groups not in confession, are now being used against those who shared them. Example one guy we know who is gay shared this with him openly in group. Guy now wants to leave NCW. But it is being used against him to prevent him leaving. Guy is freaking out and reporting to higher church authority in New Zealand. Emotional abuse Blackmail as money being asked for from him.

AND THE ARCHBISHOP IS THAT ROMAN PROPERTY. MINUS THE ARCHBISHOP YOU HAVE HAVE A GROUP OF THIEVES WITH A PLOT THAT IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING OF OUR GREAT ISLAND. APURON IS IN TO DEEP THERE IS NO SAVING OUR BELOVED TONY FROM ANY OTHER DAMAGE BUT THEN AGAIN HE DESERVE WHAT HE GETS... HE CAN'T SAY HE WAS IGNORANT. BECAUSE EVEN I WOULDN'T PUT MY NAME ON A BALLOT IF I DIDN'T KNOW WHO WAS RUNNING FOR OFFICE... SHAME,SHAME,SHAME.. ON YOU TONY. SO WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE, AND CCOG I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THE SUPPORT YOU NEED TO TAKE TONY OFF THE SEAT WE NEED TO ACT NOW. WE HAVE WHAT IT TAKES AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE EVERYTHING WE NEED.

  6. Second, dry up his source of funding - which is the money you give to your parishes, siphoned off by the archbishop to fund Pius and his cronies.

    I do not live in the Archdiocese of Agana, but if I did I would be strongly inclined to shift my offertory contributions toward the CCOG.

    However, some parishioners may still be motivated to contribute more directly to the welfare of the Church than toward the fees of lawyers, no matter how righteous the long-term cause. I somewhat sympathize with this sentiment.

    Nevertheless, the fact remains that, as long as Father Pius Sammut remains in de facto control of the Archdiocese, the act of charitable giving to local parishes becomes a very real act of formal, material cooperation with evil. Depending on the degree of knowledge the donor has about these travesties, such donations to one's parish could rise to the level of mortal sin.

    Given the pervasive evil that has been exposed, for those who still want to carry out their obligations to support the Church, without those contributions being used for evil, may I suggest giving to the Guam Carmel?

    I know that some may still consider participation in the CCOG to be "divisive," and at least giving to the Carmelites avoids the possibility of sinful misuse by Father Pius and his cronies and minions.

    Follow your conscience, and pray for the Archdiocese daily!

      Thank you, CNMI Lawyer, for pointing out that " … the fact remains that, as long as Father Pius Sammut remains in de facto control of the Archdiocese, the act of charitable giving to local parishes becomes a very real act of formal, material cooperation with evil. Depending on the degree of knowledge the donor has about these travesties, such donations to one's parish could rise to the level of mortal sin." I wish these words could be uttered by a member of the clergy because I know for a fact that, while you are correct, there are naysayers who claim that as a lawyer, you have no authority to make such a statement.

      Your suggestion to donate to the Carmelites is an excellent one — and I pray that people will be moved to redirect their weekly donations to Mother Dawn and her nuns. I would also like to remind people that donating to the Capuchins at the Friary is another option.

  8. Pachot Pius used his Billy Goat, Apo"Wrongee to write to donors, just so he could cover his UKELE on the August interview (Pius) made. What a shame! What does one expect, these NCW would lay their lives down for PIUS!

    BTW, just how true is the fact that if an Archbishop or Bishop wants to establish an RMS in their diocese the final approval must come from Kiko? If this is true, the Kiko has dominion over ALL.

  9. Agreement, interesting! why an agreement with Kiko?

    New House of Formation established within Diocesan Seminary Allen Hall

    Agreement has been reached between the Diocese of Westminster and the Neocatechumenal Way formally to establish the Redemptoris Mater House as a House of Formation within the structure of Allen Hall.

    After over twenty years of cooperation between the Neocatechumenal Way and our Diocesan Seminary at Allen Hall, formal agreements governing this growing cooperation have been signed by Archbishop Vincent Nichols and Kiko Arguello in the presence of the other leaders of the Neo Catechumenal Way.
