Wow! I see new faces. Faces from the Neocatechumenal village of Barrigada. I guess the villagers are awakening from their slumber.
Although I respect the protesters and understand where they are ooming from, they now protest directly in front of the cathedral instead of across the street from it as they did in the past. I was dropped off in front of the cathedral and had to cross the protest line to get into mass. It made me feel uncomfortable.
That's the idea
That's the idea.
The 9:30 Mass is traditionally Apuron's to celebrate. There is a picket line every Sunday at 9. It is meant to protest the archbishop's Mass. Crossing a picket line means you do not support the cause of the protest. You are not in solidarity with the picketers, which would explain your discomfort. There are plenty of other Masses you can attend unless you mean to deliberately thumb your nose at this cause. Crossing the picket line did not show respect or understanding of the protesters at all!
Yes, 7:36, walking outside in the heat of the day would be uncomfortable for sure. Fortunately, the a/c must've been on for you at mass. Pity, if it was hot in church too.
Mr. Anonymous, next Sunday show your understanding by grabbing a pi et sign.
@anon 7:36pm: what is it about crossing the protest line that made you feel uncomfortable? did they block your access? i'd be very surprised if they did.or is it that people are disturbing the peace of your sunday routine?is it that people dare to question the so-called leaders of the guam church?is it that people are disrupting the "unity" and "harmony" among guam Catholics?@anon 7:36pm: have you spent just a little bit of time learning what it is these people are protesting? why they're out there in guam weather every sunday?if you have, then either you've dismissed their claims and think apuron and his cohorts are in the right. or, worse, you've decided to stay out of it all.since, i assume, you made it to that 9:30 Mass, you would have also heard the Gospel for that sunday. i hope you haven't already forgotten Jesus's message. has He not made your heart burn?
Anon At 7:30 PM August 14, How uncomfortable did Walter Denten's discription of his rape by Apuron make you feel?
Faithful Catholics, Sunday after Sunday, marching for a cause. They are very admirable.
