LIE, CHEAT, STEAL, DENY, DEFLECT, DENY

Today's Marianas Variety article included the following comments of Adrian Cristobal regarding the status of the Yona property.


Cristobal said the assertion that the seminary is not an asset of the archdiocese "is totally false.'

“The property is designated for the use of the seminary respecting the intention of the donors but the archbishop can designate it for other use in the future,” Cristobal said in the January statement. He also denied that anyone else other than Apuron manages the seminary.
First, let's look at this statement of Cristobal: 
“The property is designated for the use of the seminary respecting the intention of the donors.."
Now, let look at what Apuron wrote to the donor on January 29, 2015: 
"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."
Twelve full years after the donation was made to purchase the property, Apuron is asking the donor to validate his use of it. This would only be necessary if in fact Apuron was NOT using the property as per the intention of the donor. And this is why on February 2, 2015, the donor replied:
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. 
Yet, Cristobal lies to us saying: 
“The property is designated for the use of the seminary respecting the intention of the donors.."
Let's look at Cristobal's other lie:
 ...the assertion that the seminary is not an asset of the archdiocese “is totally false.” 
Contrast that with the Opinion of Counsel of Guam real property attorney Jacques Bronze:
"…based on Guam statutes governing interpretation of deed and contracts, the property interest conveyed is an absolute conveyance of the entire fee simple title of the subject properties to RMHF, subject to the restraint in use."
Make no mistake. Cristobal and Apuron lie to us because they can. They know that in order to challenge their lies it will take attorneys and will be costly for us. They are betting that the Catholics of Guam will tire of this and won't put up the money to confront them. It's up to you if you are going to let these crooks win that bet.
