GUAM'S FUTURE

Wonder where your Archdiocesan Annual Appeal money goes?  

Of course, most of it goes to Apuron's presbyter playpen, aka RMS. But for more than thirty years, it has also been going to this diocese, and it's one of the reasons Apuron will never open the books. 



I am not going to bring up the priest's name. Incardinated in the then-Diocese of Agana, he was sent away to Diocese of Duluth in 1981 where he continued to be "a problem" until 1985 when he was completely removed from ministry. 

You might say though, that we contributed to the bankruptcy of the Diocese of Duluth because our diocese removed a priest from ministry here and sent him there, apparently without giving the whole story on the guy because according to the record, he was made a pastor in Duluth, where - as the record of his "removal from ministry" four years later suggests - he kept doing the same "bad things" he was doing in Guam, thus contributing to the cause of Millions of Dollars in law suits that has now led to the financial collapse of this diocese. 

But while I'll keep his name off of this post for now, there is another "priest" whose name is familiar to us who has been getting paid by your donations since at least 2005 though he is NEVER here:


And why is this post titled Guam's future? So many of you know already, but you haven't come forward. Well, there will soon be an opportunity to do so. However, because I do not want the whole diocese to suffer, I will work to see that if there are law suits, only the assets of "the person" will be targeted. Our diocese has already suffered enough.

  1. Ah yes, the "Lewd-wees"! One too old to move the other on the run!

  2. I am sorry for not understanding. If the archbishop has not opened up the books, how can we verify how much goes to the RMS or whether or not some of it goes to the Diocese of Duluth? Do you know something that you have not mentioned to help answer these questions?

    2. A better question (and not directed to Tim R.): "Why are the books closed?"

    3. Maybe aside from the honorarium and stipends paid out, hush money was included. I would say that probably a total of 1.5 meelleeeeeon dollars has already been spent on this priest (plus or minus)

  3. Diocese: die and cease. After that it can be reborn again minus the neos.

  4. Tim - if what you say is true, about hinting that we are paying a priest removed from ministry because of problems here, if we continued to pay that priest in Duluth since 1981, then the Archbishop has paid out more than $375,000 to this priest.
    And if Fr Wadeson has been serving another diocese (San Francisco) since 2005, then we paid out another $118,000.
    Both of these priests have cloudy pasts, and we have paid money in excess of $495,000 to have them prey on Catholics in other diocese.
    That to me sounds criminal, and not just the money wasted, but sending these predators to innocent and unsuspecting parishes elsewhere. How can our bishop get away with these very serious violations of Church laws and policies?
    I guess if you're in the Neo you can do anything. But it will eventually catch up to them! The devil will care.

    1. Not to mention the presbyters who are all incardinated year after year. We do not see them but we pay for their upkeep too. Whether they are "on mission" such as Caravia, Colorado and Camacho, or sent packing because of accusations such as Wadeson or Brouillard, Archbishop Apuron has forced the Catholics in his Archdiocese to commit their money to the cause of these errant presbyters. How sad that there is not a stronger rally to oust this abusive bishop. I know I am guilty because of anonymity (for good reason) but I hope that a more vigorous lay revolt is in the works.

  5. People of Guam are always on the receiving end of political shenaniganism. Now we realize that for more than a decade the same treatment has been propagated by the leaders of our local Church! How is it possible that we have been deceived and lied to under the capricious whims of Apuron, Quitugua and Cristobal? They have totally sold their souls and trusting people to the vicious spell of NCW. Chamorros are perhaps in the category of the most trusting, respectful and generous people on earth but unfortunately these traits have been exploited and abused by opportunists. Am I to conclude that only a handful of concerned elderly people and a smattering of educated professionals have the will to salvage what is left of the Catholic Church? Where are the majority of our younger generation who have a crucial stake on how this division plays out?

    1. The young have been caught hook, line and sinker by the NEOS. Imagine 25+ years on island and the majority of the elders joined the WAY, especially the women who would take their children along. These young ones are now adults who continue in the Way and now have children of their own. So, the pattern continues. This is their family, their community, their life. They are prisoners within the community of the Way. Let's just say that they live lives where "Mixed marriages" are not allowed.

      Anon 10:51 - I respectfully must disagree with you that all the youth are under the spell of the kiko cult. While a large number of members are youth and young adults, the total numbers are staggeringly low. Just 500-600 total neos on island.
      Most youth are not in the neo, and they need to weigh in and let the Church know they expect more from the leadership.
