The collections these neos request for are a JOKE...
Stop the money!!!!! Wake Up, Guam!!!!! The fox is in the hen house. Defendi I gu'mata!!!!
I wonder if it was announced that the first collection would go to the Archdiocese BEFORE it was taken up. Or was it, "Surprise, surprise!"
And some wonder why I stopped donating at mass. I no longer have confidence that my donation will be used for its intended purpose. It amazes that so many others continue to mindlessly fill the collection baskets at mass.
More money for ArchNEO Cult Presbyter Anthony Sablan Apuron to use for his countless off island excursions....Way to go for any parish under control of this NEO Cult. JOY!!!
Are you kidding me? Does this apply to all parishes? If it does, then the Catholic faithful better wake up and stop the money NOW!! Do not donate to the Annual Appeal and make sure your Sunday donations are going for the support of your parish and not to the Chancery. Let us not continue to fund that fake seminary in Yona and pay for foreign seminarians who are being totally supported by the Catholic Faithful.
Come On People, we are all one. This is so embarrassing. Churches going against one another. People Saying sour comments about which church is better, even down to comparing who has the best fiesta. This is becoming ridiculous and I think that the vatcan needs to come and settle things on Guam. Hear say that the Neos do not follow Romes way of worship! What in the world people! Stop fighting, we all need to follow God's law LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
I think it is about time an Orthodox Catholic church comes to the island
O for heaven's sake!!! Come on, Anon at 9:03pm. Did your comment have to get an "Imprimi potest" and an "imprimatur" before it went to JW?? If it had to, then someone screwed up, because your comment is heresy upon heresy. I don't begrudge your expressing your opinion and thoughts via this forum (polite of the blogger to print it) but did you avert to the fact that it only threw in more logs onto the fire of divisiveness? The NCW theology DO NOT conform to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Neo liturgical practices do not conform to the requirements of (GIRM) -- but must you emphasise them by denying that "the Neos do not follow Romes [sic] way of worship"? You're right - people should stop fighting. There will be no "fighting" on these issues of theology and liturgy if only Neos comply with the teachings and liturgical practices as demanded by Rome! Easy to say "love one another" (which I do, BTW - I pray often for my fallen-away friends/relatives in the Neo) but quite another thing to love the things Neos do in opposition to the Church's theology and liturgy. Peace, brother. I do pray for you - believe it or not! - jrsa (3/2/16)
J.R.SanAgustin, I believe your comment was meant to address the one made by Anonymous March 2, 2016 at 10:01 PM who claimed "Hear say [sic] that the Neos do not follow Romes [sic] way of worship!" and NOT the one made by Anonymous March 2, 2016 at 9:03 PM who suggested "Let us not continue to fund that fake seminary in Yona and pay for foreign seminarians who are being totally supported by the Catholic Faithful."
And the faithful of Agat are fine with this? Come on Agat people - the wolf in sheep's clothing preyed on your boys while he was assigned as a priest there and you're still giving your hard earned money to him? SMH
It's not surprising how brother tony, the vicar general quitugua and the neocult followers can easily divert ANY funds donated during mass.
Wow. Assessment at many diocese is about 10%. Almost like a tithe from the tithe. But our tony boy has switched things around. Agat can keep 10% of the collection as long as they send 90% to tony. How thoughtful of Tony. $283 per week to pay for the needs of the church?Salaries, utilities, insurance, maintenance. I wonder how long before innocent vendors will have to withhold service to the Church because of tonys greed?
