Yesterday, neocat catechist Tricky Dick Eusebio, called a press conference to inform the media of his "just conjecture" and "the truth as he understood it."Those were his words. That was how he characterized his own statements after the media began to ask him some serious questions. You can watch the full 1 hour, 17 minute, and 24 second long press fiasco here:

The main aim of Tricky Dick's statement was an attempt to discredit the earlier statement of Mother Dawn Marie, the Mother Prioress of Guam's Carmelite Monastery and community of nuns, a community that as of this month is, after 50 years, no longer on Guam.

In her statement to the press on November 15, 2016, Mother Dawn Marie related a first hand account of being in St. Louis, MO on December 17, 2014 in the office of the Prioress of the Carmelite community which had, in 2003, at the request of Mother Dawn Marie, provided the 2 Million dollars to the Archdiocese of Agana to pay off the bank loan on the Yona Property.

Mother Dawn Marie was there at the very moment an email from Archbishop Apuron arrived asking the St. Louis Prioress to sign a letter, already written, stating that the original intent of the 2003 donation was for the purpose of establishing the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and the Blessed Diego Institute, both Neocatechumenal Way entities.

A timeline:

NOV 15, 2002: Archdiocese of Agana (aka Archbishop of Agana, A Corporation Sole) takes legal possession of the property via Instrument No. 665749, Warranty Deed, recorded at GovGuam Department of Land Management.  The property was purchased for approximately 2 Million dollars and a mortgage was procured from Bank of Guam with mortgage and interest payments of $13,000 per month.

Mother Dawn Marie, Mother Prioress of the Guam Carmelites and a high ranking member of the Carmelite order, of her own accord and desiring to assist the Archdiocese of Agana, approaches a sister Carmelite community in St. Louis and solicits their financial assistance.

JAN 02, 2003: The Carmelite community in St. Louis, MO, agrees to lend Archdiocese of Agana the money to pay off the approximate 2 Million dollar mortgage note, interest free. (The offer of a loan eventually became a free and clear gift).

DEC 17, 2014: Mother Dawn Marie, on business for her Carmelite order, is in the office of the St. Louis Carmelite community when an email from Archbishop Apuron arrives addressed to the Prioress of the St. Louis community. In the email Apuron asks the St. Louis Prioress to sign a pre-written letter stating that the original intent of the 2003 donation was for the "purchase of the Accion Hotel for the Archdiocese of Agana for the purpose of housing the Redemptoris Mater Seminary and the Theological Institute for the formation of priests."

NOV 15, 2016: After several years of silently suffering the effects of Apuron and Pius' attack on traditional vocations (only neocat "vocations" were encouraged and funded), Mother Dawn moved her community to the states and as a parting gift relates why her community had to leave Guam and the first hand account of what happened upon receipt of Apuron's Dec 17, 2014 letter:
  • The St. Louis Prioress wrote back to Apuron telling him that she could not sign the letter because it was not true.
  • The Prioress stated that she had never heard of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary, the Blessed Diego Institute or the Neocatechumenal Way.
  • She stated that her community's only intent was to help relieve the Archdiocese of Agana of a financial burden and to help provide a seminary for the formation of priests for the Church in Guam.
  • Apuron's letter is sent to the Apostolic Delegate for Oceania who then forwards it to Rome, where Archbishop Hon, Secretary for the Evangelization of Peoples, reads it. 
NOV 21, 2016: Ric Eusebio, neocat catechist and former member of the RMS board of directors, calls a press conference to refute Mother Dawn Marie's Nov 15 statement. The basis for his refutation is his claim that Mother Dawn is lying because he can prove that the St. Louis Prioress (who he said is "deceased" but happens to be alive and well), intended the St. Louis community's donation specifically for the Neocatechumenal Redemptoris Mater Seminary and Blessed Diego Institute. Eusebio's evidence is a 2003 email exchange between Apuron and the St. Louis Prioress.

As you can see, there is no mention of Neocatechumenal Way, Redemptoris Mater Seminary, or Blessed Diego Institute. And it is curious that Apuron makes no mention of those names. Perhaps he did not want to tip her off to what he was up to. But even if there was mention of those names, why would a cloistered Carmelite, hidden away from the world for 50 years in a life of silence, sacrifice, and prayer, just happen to know the name of the seminary and that it was connected with the Neocatechumenal Way?

This is Eusebio's "conjecture" (his word). Eusebio said that because the name of the seminary was public knowledge and because "everybody knows" that Redemptoris Mater seminaries are associated with the Neocatechumenal Way, that the Carmelite Prioress "had to know" what she was giving the money to. Can you all say LOL?

The Carmelite vocation is precisely to LEAVE the public, to NOT pay attention to the mundane and profane, but simply to sacrifice and pray for us, and specifically for priests. Moreover, since Apuron does not tell her anything about the Neocatechumenal Way or the name of the seminary, she, like so many of us, probably expected the seminary to be nothing other than a diocesan seminary. There was no reason to suspect that it was to be a seminary SPECIFICALLY constituted to prepare men ONLY "according to the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way" as Article 3 of its 2002 Articles of Incorporation state!

One of Eusebio's major claims is that the priests formed at RMS are no different than priests formed at any other diocesan seminary. Eusebio has to say this because millions have been bilked, not only from the Carmelites, but from the faithful of Guam, who, for going on two decades, gave a lot of money to this seminary believing that it was creating "priests for Guam."

However, if that was the case then there would have been NO need to erect a second seminary (on December 8, 2013) to form priests for Guam. In fact, in an article published in the Umatuna on that date, it was clearly stated that RMS existed to create priests "for the wider mission of salvation "to the ends of the earth." 

That's nice that we want to send priests out to the ends of the earth, but that's not what we were told while RMS pocketed millions from our collections and constant fund raisers, all the while squelching traditional diocesan vocations for our local boys. 

The bottom line however, is that RMS, per its own stated purpose, existed to form priests ONLY "according to the life and practice of the Neocatechumenal Way." And while most of did not know that or did not know what that actually meant, we began learning what that really meant once they started putting these badly deformed presbyters in our parishes and we could see for ourselves that not only did they NOT care for our Catholic Mass, they mocked it and us from the very altar at which they stood. 

Oh, that's right. They don't believe in an "altar."

Lastly, we all really need to thank Eusebio. Archbishop Byrnes has stated that his first step upon arrival in Guam will be to "listen." Super. Well, we want him to listen to the Neocatechumenal Way FIRST. And Tricky Dick has provided us more evidence of just how rotten this thing is than anything we could say or attempt to prove. Note: No offense to the innocent followers, but GET OUT OF IT, NOW!

One last note: In his press conference, Dirty Dick made the name of the St. Louis Prioress known. This was ABSOLUTELY OFF LIMITS from the beginning. The Carmelite vocation is precisely NOT to be known. Mother Dawn Marie herself kept quiet about all this and only came forward because she saw that the lies of Tricky Dick and Putrid Pius were at the root of much of the hell Apuron and Adrian created. For the good and eventual peace of the Church, she came forward with a FIRST HAND account of all the events. Yet stupid Dirty Dick wants us to believe:
Eusebio said Mother Superior Dawn Marie’s claim of a toxic environment has been fueled “by her own desire to seek public attention and provide her rendition of the truth in regards to the seminary.” 
“She attempts to discredit Archbishop Apuron and deems him guilty in regards to the sexual abuse allegations against him without a trial. My recollection of the truth is substantially different from what she professed,” Eusebio said. 
Later, Dirty Dick admitted that his "recollection of the truth" was only "conjecture" and that he was not there. Dirty Dick is done.
