LET'S HOPE IT WASN'T REALLY A "SACRED" RELIC

Guam Daily Post, Nov. 2, 2015, page 3

Can.  1190 §1. It is absolutely forbidden to sell sacred relics.

And LOL. So he is the honoree, the emcee, and the auctioneer. Any opportunity to be in the spotlight.

  1. How did he obtain this "relic" from Rome?
    Was it donated to the diocese? Shame, shame, shame on the arch for obtaining a relic from Rome and then putting it in a silent auction. There was a minimum bid listed for each item. Wonder how much money was forked over. Well, the arch's dishonesty is all-encompassing. This relic incident is in line with his claiming Guam is a "mission diocese" and fraudulently obtaining funds from The Catholic Extension Service." He had to have authorized the submission of fraudulent documents. Hey, when the truth comes out and the beans are spilled about his past, I won't be surprised no matter how shocking it is. He has a well-established record of lying and deceit.

    1. Yet another desecration of our Church and it's laws by the very person who is supposed to be the protector of the Church.
      Heresy upon heresy, canon law violation upon canon law violation.
      But hey, it's all ok because Rome knows about it and they say nothing.
      Some must follow canon law, and neos get to create their special exceptions.
      I am saddened and sickened that Rome does nothing.
      We have all given up on the Archbishop, but we felt that Rome would step in to resolve the issue. Apparently, we will have to take further steps ourselves.

  2. Is there any connection between the relic and the "whatever".

  3. He is the archbishop and according to his interpretation of the position, he owns everything. He did sell a multi-million dollar property and Rome hasn't done nothing, so therefore, what he's doing is right in his own sorry mind. Blechh!

    What an utter disgrace this stupid ignorant man has become to The Roman Catholic Church.
    He is a disgrace to the the Roman Catholic Church.
    No self respecting Catholoc Bishop would be acting like him.
    We should find out if it is a real relic if so it should not be auctioned.
    Knowing this man there is nothing authentic about him so a part of me
    Doubts he has a real anything. Well may be his expensive watches but even them
    You can fake today. But I will fax the Apostolic Delegate now to let him know " watch out archbishop Krebs tony's latest fund raiser, auctioning relics"

      Thank you Eileen. This is how it began. The sleeping St. Joseph was always available in back street religious stores of Rome. No one really bothered about it. When the Holy Father was here in Manila January he told the people he has this sleeping St. Joseph on his desk in his room. When he has a worry he writes the worry on paper places it under the statue asking St. Joseph to take care of the worry problem. Over night moulds were made and the statue re produced in Europe and in Manila. It was the fashion to have one. I think it's a beautiful devotion don't take me wrong. But I do think tony misled you all. The statue is now on every street corner of Rome and if someone, and I Doub't it, paid $15,000 for plaster , they have really been taken of advantage of, or they are simply giving money to him. I suspect this was done for show and drama.

    4. Fr. Blockley,
      I love the story behind the statue and the Pope's devotion to St. Joseph. My late parents were both born in March and prayed the novena to St. Joseph every year.
      My brother goes to the PI 3 times a year and I'll ask him to bring me one on his next trip.

  6. Maybe the icons and statues were not blessed. They can be sold, like the ones in at the Cathedral Shop and Padre Pio.

    1. Yes, in CCD we were taught that unblessed religious statues, icons, or articles can be sold; but a RELIC is always a blessed article. The act of "auctioning" is no different from the act of "selling"; and so, IF relics were being auctioned off at that $200-plate birthday bash they then, were not only engaging in a sacrilegious act but were also being irreverent and disrespectful, weren't they? All in the name of greed! How sad!

  7. Can. 1190 §1. It is absolutely forbidden to sell sacred relics.

    §2. Relics of great significance and other relics honored with great reverence by the people cannot be alienated validly in any manner or transferred permanently without the permission of the Apostolic See.

    §3. The prescript of §2 is valid also for images which are honored in some church with great reverence by the people.

    Apparently even images (pictures) cannot be alienated without the permission of the Apostolic See. Oh Dear, what have you gone done stupid this time, Tony? Joy! Courage (foolhardy)

    1. I wouldn't put it past him if he auctioned off a village of latte stones! His leadership continues to pave the road to destroying much of the Chamorro culture. Really, we have lost confidence in the arch!

  9. facepalm. yeah, i sure hope it wasn't a sacred relic. it doesn't take a "d.d." to know it's not right to be selling them. and wasn't his chief canon lawyer in attendance at the event to advise him against such actions?

    The highest price in the silent auction was $15,000. Pretty good price for the Electra.

    Dear Anonymous at 11:47 am,

    I think the food, the service at the Hyatt, and the entertainment was great!

    The Hyatt is an outstanding venue with great food. Good choice for the gala.

  12. Since Tony Boy is old and was also bought and sold, doesn't that make him a relic too? lol!!

    1. No, 6:45, he is not a relic. He is more like a used-up drag queen and a has-been prostitute who sold himself to NCW.

  13. Tony Boy's no longer a Catholic so that means he doesn't give a damn what the Canon Law says. If he can make some money by selling sacred relics, he will.

  14. Oh well, Tony already sold us TRUE CATHOLIC of GUAM and CNMI too.

  15. He's so popular! He's known as the archbishop that was not.

  16. Woah Woah Woah. Selling a relic (or giving it away for money) is absolutely forbidden. Perhaps I'm wrong, but it was my understanding that to either buy or sell a relic was to automatically excommunicate oneself from the Church. At the very best, it is a profound evil.

    This is a much bigger deal than Arch or any of his inner circle seem to realize--much worse than just moneymaking. This is simony plain and simple. Much much bigger. Someone PLEASE get word of this to Rome, or at least to Archbishop Krebs.

  17. This whole Neocat trash bag /money laundering and fundraiser disguised as a birthday party and the attitudes of the Archbishop and his presbyters-- reminds me of this gospel according to Mark (12:38-40)
    38In the course of his teaching he said, “Beware of the scribes, who like to go around in long robes and accept greetings in the marketplaces,
    39seats of honor in synagogues, and places of honor at banquets.
    40They devour the houses of widows and, as a pretext, recite lengthy prayers. They will receive a very severe condemnation.”
