Tricky Dick says:
1. Tricky Dick claims that RMS is “‘diocesan’ by virtue of the fact that the Ordinary has established the institution. LOL, Tricky Dick! Ummm, the intent of the ad hoc Committee’s visitation was not to determine whether or not the Seminary was “diocesan” but whether or not RMS was forming men for the diocesan priesthood! DUH!
2. Tricky Dick declares further that RMS is diocesan because “the Articles of Incorporation of the RMS specifically identify the Sole Member of the Corporation as the Archbishop of Agana.” LOL, Tricky Dick. The corporate legal structure of the RMS Corporation has nothing to do with what actually happens there.
3. Tricky Dick then slays us with the Kiko mantra claiming approval of multiple popes and hundreds of cardinals, archbishops and bishops. Yawn. None of that means CRAP, Tricky Dick. Have you ever heard of Marcel Maciel? He was the founder of the Legionaries of Christ, which not only had the approval of multiple popes and hundreds of prelates, but the personal protection of St. JP2, himself. As it turned out Maciel was diddling little boys as well as big ones for decades. And for good measure, he kept a woman or two and a family on the side. In fact, it took JP2’s death in order for the Church to finally root the bastard out. Read more here.
Perhaps Tricky Dick’s most insane criticism is that the COMMITTEE did not define “their (sic: “committee” is singular) interpretation of ‘diocesan’.”
Ummm, Tricky Dick, in the rest of the Catholic world, the real one (you know, the one outside your cult) there is no need to manufacture an “interpretation of “'diocesan'.”
A DIOCESE is an administrative region under the pastoral care of a bishop, and it is divided into smaller administrative regions called “parishes.” "Diocesan” priests are formed specifically to serve parishes. RMS neocat presbyters are not.
Neocat presbyters are formed specifically to serve neocat communities, not parishes. In fact, Kiko teaches that the “parish” is dead and that the neocat community is the new “reality.”
And then we have the Articles of Incorporation for RMS itself, wherein Article 3 proclaims that:
“The purpose of the Corporation shall be to establish and conduct a House of Formation to prepare men for the priesthood for the new evangelization following the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way…”
There is nothing here about preparing men for the DIOCESAN priesthood to serve parishes in the Archdiocese of Agana. Men at RMS are prepared ONLY according to “the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way.” Ummm, Tricky Dick, this is what your own Articles say. You are the big shot on the Board. Are you refuting your own incorporation documents? LOL.
Of course the big Bozo here, in addition to Tricky Dick, is Apuron, who on December 15, 2013, told us, himself, that RMS was NOT to form men for the diocesan priesthood, and that a new seminary would be doing that:
The new Saint John Paul II Archdiocesan Seminary will complement the Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Missionary Seminary in Yona, which opened in 1999. Both seminaries are diocesan seminaries owned by the Archdiocese of Agana; however one will underscore the local mission in our archdiocese while the other will have the added element of availability for the wider mission of salvation to the ‘ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).
Despite the double talk about both seminaires being diocesan, it is clear that RMS does NOT exist to prepare priests to serve the “local mission in our archdiocese,” which is exactly why Apuron created this fake second seminary.
Wrapping up, it is typical of Tricky Dick to want to wow us with his knowledge of Canon Law, so he references c.238 §1 here:
“The RMS is a diocesan seminary duly erected by the ordinary of the Archdiocese…thus, the nature of the RMS is “diocesan’ by virtue of the fact that the Ordinary has established the institution. (c.238 §1).”
LOL. Let’s look at what Canon 238 §1 says:
Can. 238 §1. Seminaries legitimately erected possess juridic personality in the Church by the law itself.
That’s all it says. “Juridic personality” is the ecclesiastical equivalent of a non-profit corporation. That’s it.
LOL, Tricky Dick. LOL.
