Hit the nail right on the head. Fortunate that we have Tim's JW and insightful comments such as yours to educated people of this organization that has the cover of religion, but sucks, money and good name of people. Anyone ever wonder how much money they have sucked from Guam? 50 million from the Catholic Laity is just one example. How about the support for their "unwanted seminary" Black trash bags? Salaries paid to these presbyters? The list goes on and on. The other side of the coin many of our Churches and schools are hurting. Apuron is deaf to these needs.
What a perfect way to describe this group and what they have done to Guam's Catholic Church! Good job
To Anon at 8:40am and Anon at 10:33amYou two are both absolutely right, and probably along with a host of other readers who are reluctant to publicly chime in on the issue. The current DLM debacle over the seminary’s certificate of title has its roots in the overall mission of the Neocatechumenal Way (NCW), since its very inception, i.e. to get in there (archdiocese) under the guise of religion and suck the people for every dollar it will be blindly cajoled into, starting with the mega million dollar asset it has in the former Accion Hotel – by setting up as a Redemptoris Mater seminary (RMS), completely separate and apart from the Archdiocese of Agana, with its very own organization, replete with its own Articles of Incorporation, Board of Directors (BOD), and a “super board” (Board of Guarantors) that has veto power even over the BOD – even over the Archbishop himself! [Imagine a scenario we will be having now had Bishop Apollinaris Baumgartner deeded a similar restriction of the Tai property to the Stigmatine Fathers who started the minor seminary there in 1948, and have since left Guam in 1959. There would be no FDMS as we know it today!] And at what expense – the surreptitious introduction and proliferation of the NCW cultic religion into Guam. And what a blessing it is for them that this is made possible and easy through the entrenchment (entrapment) of the leader of the Catholic Church in Guam himself, Archbishop Anthony Apuron. Catholic people of Guam, open your eyes, wake up and smell the coffee! It is brewing, and unless we get the pot off the burner, it will lead to more disastrous results – spiritually as well as financially. (JRSA: 3/29/16)
