At first, I was one of those who was urging others to "give Hon a chance."

In fact, when a listener called into the Patti Arroyo show on June 10, the day after Hon's first address to the Catholics of Guam at St. Anthony's, and expressed disappointment that Hon had said "nothing about the victims," I immediately called in and angrily protested that we needed to give him a chance. 

However, within a few days, I was to see the error of my thinking and immediately realized that Hon had been sent here by Filoni to do one thing: save RMS, and save Apuron if he could. 

And who is Filoni? 

As Frenchie explains in his post A STUDY IN DOUBLE TALK, AND MISLEADING PEOPLE, Cardinal Fernando Filoni is "Kiko's best friend in the Vatican.

As the initial weeks went by, with no mention of the "victims" and not even a call to pray for them (versus Hon's continual calls to pray for Apuron), it became increasingly clear that Hon was sent here by Filoni with orders NOT to touch the subject of "the victims." 

Evidence for this recently appeared in a scathing comment posted by Doris Concepcion. At the memorial Mass for her son Joseph (Sonny) Quinata, Doris quotes Fr. Jeff San Nicolas as saying during the homily: My SUPERIORS GAVE ME PERMISSION TO ATTEND SONNY'S SERVICE AND SAY A FEW WORDS.

Wait a minute. Fr. Jeff is a Catholic priest. He's celebrating a memorial Mass for the soul of the deceased, and he has to be given PERMISSION by his SUPERIORS to SAY A FEW WORDS! Since when does a Catholic priest need PERMISSION to say a few words of comfort at a Mass for the Dead? In fact, have you ever been to any Mass where the priest has said "MY SUPERIORS GAVE ME PERMISSION TO BE AT THIS MASS AND SAY A FEW WORDS"???? Huh?

Well of course, NEVER!

So what was different about this Mass? Well, it was for the soul of someone who had accused Apuron of molesting him just hours before he died. He was one of the "alleged victims." And Hon had STRICT orders from Filoni NOT to touch this issue. Thus, since Hon is Fr. Jeff's superior, Fr. Jeff had to procure permission from Hon. 

But Fr. Jeff used the plural "SUPERIORS." A diocesan priest has only ONE "superior," his bishop. So why does he use the plural? No doubt, if Hon had been ordered by Filoni NOT to touch the subject of "the victims," Before Fr. Jeff could attend the Mass for Sonny, Hon himself had to seek permission from HIS superior, who is Filoni, and Fr. Jeff knew this. Thus, Fr. Jeff said "SUPERIORS."

Of course, now with the release of David the Rector's letter to Fr. Jeff stating that the Laity Forward Movement could NOT enter the seminary by order of Cardinal Filoni, we now know for sure that Hon was NOT sent here by Pope Francis, but by Filoni, with Francis probably only giving his blessing to the appointment. But like all good Neo's, Hon tells us "the pope sent me."
As I've been saying for three years now, RMS is NOT "a seminary for Guam," but a seminary exclusively for the Neocatechumenal Way. And the ownership of the property aside, Filoni's letter to David the Rector proves this. 

The Ad Hoc committee report for the seminary also proves the same, stating that the priestly formation at RMS is demonstrably NOT diocesan and with no benefit to the Archdiocese of Agana.
Exacerbating the issue is the fact that the RMS is widely viewed as, and evidence points to the fact that it is, strictly a neocatechumenal seminary that does not have a clear benefit for the Archdiocese of Agana. (Pg. 15)
No wonder, David the Rector ordered Fr. Jeff NOT to publish the report. In fact, we learned from Patti Arroyo's interview with Fr. Mike Crisostomo on September 21 that the then-rector, Pius the Stinking Monk, did not allow the ad hoc committee itself to visit the seminary until Hon issued a decree demanding that it be permitted to do so. 

Now back to Filoni and what Frenchie revealed in his post. 

Filoni is the Prefect for the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples. Hon is the Secretary for the same Congregation and thus Filoni's immediate subordinate. This is why Hon was sent to Guam and no one else. 

I and others pointed out early-on that it was strange for the Secretary of a major Vatican Congregation to be appointed to a "fix-it" job to some small outpost in the Pacific. And it was stranger still to send a bureaucrat bishop with absolutely NO pastoral experience to tend to a serious pastoral problem. 

It's strange of course until you realize that Hon was not sent here to fix anything, but, as we have said all along, to calm the natives, get those embarrassing protesters off the street, and save RMS if not Apuron too. This is why on Sunday, June 12, Hon so confidently told those who attended 9:30AM Mass at the Cathedral (after ignoring Walter) that the protesters would "be gone in two weeks." 

Hon was sent here simply because - as Filoni's subordinate - he could be controlled. And every bitter step we have made towards improvement has been completely due to the public embarrassment (or the threat of it) to the Filoni-Hon regime. So for those who are so-called "happy with the progress," stay off the streets and stand in the corner and watch the real adults do the work. 

Competence over Seminaries

Per Frenchie's research, Pope Benedict's Motu Proprio MINISTRORUM INSTITUTIO issued on January 16, 2013, gave competence over Catholic seminaries to the Congregation for the Clergy "except those dependent upon the Congregations for Oriental Churches or for the Evangelization of Peoples." Since the Archdiocese of Agana is "dependent upon the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, "competence" for RMS falls to this Congregation and thus Filoni.

However, what does "competence" mean? It means that the Congregation has oversight over the the content of academic and priestly formation. It does not mean that it has competence over the actual administration of the institution. That belongs "without prejudice"* to the diocesan bishop in whose diocese the seminary exists. This is why Bishop Aquila of Fargo, North Dakota had the authority to close his diocese's seminary in 2011, and NOT the Vatican Congregation. 

*Ҥ 1. Without prejudice to the rights of bishops and their conferences, the Congregation examines matters concerning priests and deacons of the secular clergy with regard to their persons and their pastoral ministry, as well as the resources they require for the exercise of this ministry, and in all these matters the Congregation offers appropriate assistance to bishops.

So while Filoni's Congregation has competence over the formative content of RMS, it does NOT have administrative control of RMS. That, per Benedict's MINISTRORUM INSTITUTIO, belongs "without prejudice to the rights" of the diocesan bishop. So the real question is WHO IS THE DIOCESAN BISHOP?

According to Pope Francis, Archbishop Hon has assumed all authority of the office of the Archbishop of Agana as of June of this year. However, Hon is still the curial subordinate of Filoni in Rome. So Hon serves two masters: the pope and Filoni. And Filoni serves Kiko. 

Make no mistake. It was set up this way from the beginning. The Kiko's are great planners. They planned for this day. This is why they sent Hon here in January of 2015 and June of 2016. And that is why they took title to the property in 2011. But what they didn't plan for...IS US - the "sensus fidei," the "competence" of the laity!

Final note. 

I was asked to address a Rotary meeting today. I explained to them how I got involved in this and how I intended to get out of it. I shared that at that moment we were within 24 hours of all this ending

With the signing of Bill 326 into law, the legal system would take over and all would be exposed, including the corruption all the way up to Filoni, since the sex abuse cases are linked directly to the alienation of the property in 2011 and the culture of deception at RMS. 

The final chords of Apuron's Gotterdammerung would be played out in the courts and Kiko's world would come tumbling down. This is why Hon sprang into action at the ELEVENTH HOUR to demand that the governor VETO the bill. 

Make NO MISTAKE! All this was at Filoni's order. Pray hard that the governor does not also fall to Filoni and his Kiko's.
