There's this scene that keeps playing in my head and it won't go away. It looks like this. 

Archbishop Hon is yelling into the phone while Fr. Ted sits nearby shaking his head and looking at the floor. On the other end of the phone in Rome is Cardinal Filoni who is shouting back. Behind him and leaning over his chair is Kiko Arguello and Anthony S. Apuron. Filoni is mad at Hon for not putting down the rebellion and Hon is mad at Filoni for sending him to this "God-forsaken" place.

This may not be what is actually happening, but given Apuron's brazen June 6 video message on the steps of the Vatican - a message never discredited by Hon, one can only assume that Apuron and Kiko are hard at work with their friends in high places. 

But why so much effort for Guam? 

Compared to Kiko's vast empire, not even the 70 Million Dollar property should matter this much. And then to send a Secretary of a major Vatican Congregation to babysit while Archie is away? What's up with that? Why is Guam so important to them? 

It's really about demographics. 

In order for Kiko to take over the Church - something he has already gone quite far in doing - he must produce armies of presbyters. It's sort of how Islam is currently conquering Europe where Muslim immigrants are out birthing Europeans 5 to 1, not to mention the vast increase through immigration itself. 

The challenge Kiko has in doing this is that only a bishop can ordain a priest, so he has spent a lot of energy and effort buying up bishops. That's not hard to do, but nowhere was it easier than on Guam. With Apuron firmly in hand (perhaps because his molestation history was known to his neo-master), Kiko had a bishop who would ordain anyone he was told to ordain. For whereas other bishops were easily purchased, they still maintained some standards for ordination, especially since the Vatican began investigating seminaries under Benedict. 

Because of Apuron's obedience to his neo-masters, Guam's RMS was the place to send the rejects, all the guys no other bishop would take. This is why Guam has twice the number of seminarians at our RMS than does a diocese like Boston which is more than ten times our size. With no stable professorship, no real courses, and little oversight from the Vatican, the RMS factory has been in full swing, pumping out presbyters lickety-split.

In order to keep this machine going, Kiko and Gennarini knew that they needed an obedient successor to Apuron. Their best bets up to this point were Adrian or David. But then, DAMN that JungleWatch! These guys are now too toxic and have to be passed over - sending Adrian into crybaby tears and David to the clinic begging for meds. 

So what to do? 

I'll tell you what they are doing. If they can't have the arch-neo's David or Adrian, they will work to get someone who will be a complete yes-man, someone they can control like Apuron, someone who, even if he is not a neo, will still bend to the neo-will. Who could that be? 

I don't know. I was hoping that Rome would see fit to put in a bishop from elsewhere for five years or so until things get right, but now I don't think so. I think Filoni seriously believed he could rehabilitate Apuron and stick him back in here until retirement - another 5 years in which he could ordain tons of more presbyters. But now that the possibility of lifting the statute of limitations looms, he is having to rethink this. 

Filoni can't afford a bishop or an administrator not friendly to the neo's. They need someone in here they can control. And it appears they are moving fast. Hon wants out of here ASAP. Everyday brings a new disaster and his star is fading in Rome. 

I sense that Hon, Filoni, and Kiko are scrambling to get a neo-friendly bishop in here pronto! Apuron is still in the background saying "what about me? what about me?" But Filoni probably saw the testimonies at the public hearing and realized that Apuron is definitely now a NO GO!

So who will it be? 

I think we'll be able to tell by whoever Hon makes the next Vicar General. Watch for it. 


  1. So david the VG is up for replacement. What about adriana with no balls?

    1. No balls is up for replacement too. I hope he is also replaced as vocational director.

    2. Poor pale lurch, will ill begiven rest cure broth and an afghan over his knees, lots of sleep and a walker. Tea and the like... Held accountable ??? Sure as hell better be.

    3. Yes, replace ball-less as Vocational Director. I am sure those deaconate candidates, who have been waiting will breath a sigh of relief. No Balls has been their roadblock to their competition.

    4. They should cut his balls off and give it to his boss APURON the molester and let him squeeze it. He'll like that.

  2. I wonder how many pieces of silver will be offered to Father "nice guy".
    Wait for it, wait for it. For sure! For sure!


    1. How many pieces of silver? Air tickets spending money property Manila Condos Nebraska Farms..... Father will be as rich as Apuron... For sure for sure.
      See you in mid air when our flights pass today. Look out the window i'll be there. For sure For Sure! Bye

    2. Will it be more than the position he holds now?? Hmmm? Mentioned before on JW.

      Anonymous at 7:37 AM, I'm really curious who "Fr. Nice" will be. In my mind, it would have to be one of the REAL Priests — NOT one of the RMS presbyters! — for any chance of the semblance of "success" for Hon as well as for him to bid us "Adios" and fly away home.

      While it's clear the appointee would need to be malleable — that is, "open" to bridging the gap and "unifying" Neos and NON-Neos to bring peace, harmony and serenity to the archdiocese — he must also be someone who is respected by the NON-Neos.

      I'm going to make a list of all the REAL priests and see which names come up as possible "candidates." I'm guessing our "elder" priests — like Msgr. Arroyo who has done a less than stellar job as Spokesperson but who is very Neo-friendly — will be out of the running. Also off the list would be those who have celebrated their Golden Sacerdotal Anniversaries, like Msgr. David I.A. Quitugua and Fr. Tom McGrath.

      I was wondering if one of the requisites for appointment as Vicar General is for the candidate to be a Canon Lawyer, like the current VG. If so, that would definitely narrow the field. According to the information that came up when I "Googled" 2016 Metropolitan Tribunal Guam, the names included Fathers Carlos Vila, JCL; Joeffrey Brian V. Catuiran, JCL; and Jonathan Alvarez, JCL. At this point, I seriously doubt being a Canon Lawyer is requisite for appointment to the post.

      That leaves more priests in the running. Although as far as being "Neo-friendly," I have a strong feeling that neither Fr. Paul Gofigan (removed by Apuron on 16 July 2013) nor Msgr. James Benavente (removed by Apuron on 25 July 2014) made the original list. Let's start analyzing who are the most likely candidates …

      St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle …
      St. Athanasius, pray for us!

    4. It cannot be anyone of the elder priests here mentioned as they are mast the mandatory retirement age for bishops of 75.

    Hon, moving at glacier speed. Wasn't there a Bishop Schneider out there? Can we hire him for a few years? Just asking.

    1. I still wish the next bishop would be Msgr. James Benavente or Fr. Paul Gofigan. Both are knowledgeable, skilled and are trustworthy. They would undo all the corruption and make sure the NCW presbyters obey their statutes or leave.

    2. Sigh!
      It's always the same: the standard curial tactics, same everywhere in the world - when things get too hot, name a VG and promote later to Bishop.

      Tim only forgot that Kiko's pride is huge. Kiko waged a cruel war against Japanese Bishops because Kiko never backs down. Never.


  4. FR.Jeff or Fr.Lito
    "Yes kiko yes kiko"
    In exchange for airticket travel money.

    1. Fr Jeff mystery trips...mucho. Excuse 'taking course on family'.

  5. Look for an ad in the Umatuna that reads:

    His Excellency AB Hon is looking for priests to fill the vacancy of the Archbishop of Hagatna. Applicants must be proficient at lying, skilled in the three Cs, and perform all of the above without prejudice. Applicants must confess all past sins to the RMS committee. ESL and perverts preferred.

  6. Archbishop Hon, This issue is indeed paramount for us. 7 parishes are now staffed with presbyters. There are 40 or more in formation, it doesn't take a great mind to know that it is only a matter of time when all parishes will be lead for NCW clerics. The only way to pursue a Diocesan vocation if to attend RMS. Ask Aaron Quitigua, Apuron refused to sponsor him although he was willing to pay for his own formation at a seminary other than RMS. The plan for the Kiko is complete domination of Guam and the Pacific. The way to peace in our Church is for Kiko to build his own facilities and shut down RMS, it only exists to achieve his plan for the spread of his Cult in this region.

  7. installation of the new chancellor will be on Saturday, July 2nd at 730pm

  8. Wouldn't that be great? But that's too big of a wish!!

    Wouldn't it be nice if Hon polls the Laity, even if it is only a straw poll? Just to feel our pulse - but then he already knows that, huh. Plus, that would narrow Filoni's choices; no good!

    We're all on edges with this re-shuffling. (jrsa: 6/30/16)

  9. Apparently the proper text to study for these appointments was written by Ralph Buchsbaum in 1938.

  10. MORE NEWS!
    new "vicar" and new chancellor!!

  11. Just heard that Father jeff is VG and Father Lito is Chancelor. Watch out for Lito.
