THIS SUNDAY'S PICKET BROUGHT A FEW NEW CONCERNED CATHOLICS TO THE LINE

posted by Jose M.

This is the 4th Sunday in 2017 since we returned to the picket lines after taking a short holiday break.  This was also the 1st Sunday that Abp Byrnes celebrated Mass at the Cathedral since he has returned to Guam.

Today's picket line consisted of some who are retired, many who perspired and many who perhaps were a bit more inspired as there certainly were a few new faces joining with the familiar this morning.

  1. Wasn't Archbishop Byrnes on the line as well?

    1. If he was it would be front page news on the print media, at least.
      It would be nice if a photo of him on the protest line could be provided for those of us who weren't there, like me.

    2. Archbishop Byrnes was protesting. His picture is on pdn. Diana followers are in denial and seem to think he would never join the protesting. Lol. Can't wait to hear their stupid reasoning.

    3. Abp Byrnes came out of the east side of the cathedral to greet some people arriving for the mass. He then walked to the front and got in line walking toward the front steps. As he got out of line to enter the cathedral he said, "I'm sorry for interrupting your rosary."

    4. Archbishop Byrnes walked the line a bit greeting picketers. When he realized we were all deep in prayer, he apologized for disturbing us and left the picket line to say mass. Kudos to him for the gesture, but Tony Apuron is officially still the Archbishop of Agana and must be defrocked.

    1. I have to admit that I only joined the picket line a few weeks after it began last year and save for a weekend or two, have been on the line since.

      Their energy and resolve is amazing. These pictures are taken from a stationary point which means I get to stop and rest; those in these photos do not. It is truly inspiring to be in the presence of these prayer warriors!

      Yes, I can imagine the vibe and the energy. I get what you mean. That's why I say that if I were there, I would join the picket. Your photos are the next best thing to supporters who live off-island.

  3. Byrnes is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. The fact that he publicly stated that he didn't know where Guam was proves it. All he had to do in that case was look at a map on his mobile phone before saying something so stupid. It will be easy for Filoni to manipulate him.

    1. We may be a tiny island, however, we have a huge voice. Let's not waste it on inconsequential issues and focus on our criticism back to the subjects that truly affect our Church.

      While we do need to be proactive in exposing Filoni's manipulations, labeling our new shepherd an ignoramus is not productive. His initial lack of knowledge of the location of our island is certainly not the litmus.
