THE IDES OF MARCH BODE WELL THIS TIME AROUND - THANK YOU ARCHBISHOP BYRNES

Posted by Tim Rohr

As I outlined in my post of March 8, WE WAIT, the monstrosities taking place before our eyes now in the Archdiocese of Agana can be traced back to January 2006, when Archbishop Apuron publicly took sides with the Neocatechumenal Way against the magisterial authority of the Holy Catholic Church (vis-a-vis the CDW Instruction of Dec. 1, 2005) as specifically regards the distribution and reception of Holy Communion.

At the root of the NCW's leadership and Apuron's refusal to conform to what the Church required is a fundamental difference of belief about what Holy Communion is. And what Holy Communion is is at the very heart of what is the Holy Catholic Church. Without getting into the theology of it (we've gone there before), the NCW has fought tooth and nail to maintain their illicit practice because it supports Kiko Arguello's illicit (and probably heretical) doctrine 

But now, and whereas Apuron was the first bishop in the world to publicly support Kiko's heresy and illicit communion rite, Archbishop Byrnes appears to be the first bishop in the world to publicly DEMAND that it be abrogated and that the norms of the Holy Catholic Church be maintained.

I say the "first bishop in the world" because I am not aware of any other bishop, even those who have imposed a moratorium on the NCW, who have directly targeted the illicit practice and demanded full obedience of the NCW to what the GIRM requires and what the NCW Statute permits.

I say if we can trust Archbishop Byrnes to do the right thing in this regard, the very center of the division, then we can trust him moving forward on the many other things. That does not mean we can relax our vigilance. The Kiko's will wage an all out underground war against Byrnes and try to trip him up, or, failing that, they will simply continue to disobey as they have from the beginning. We must help Archbishop Byrnes continue to do the right thing.

Meanwhile: APURON OUT!

  1. Hey this does not sound like a "tiny" change.

  2. It is important to note that Archbishop Byrnes did neither create new liturgy nor mis-interpret the liturgy. He simply invoked the GIRM.

    All the manipulating and mental gymnastics from the leaders and catechists of the NCW could not displace the wisdom of the Church through the GIRM. Her liturgy is strong.

    I have been praying — among many things — that Archbishop Michael Jude Byrnes — would be strengthened by our prayers so that he will be able to withstand the pressures of the NCW influence and provide us, his flock, with an AUTHENTIC spiritual leadership that is faithful to the Magisterium of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. This letter from Archbishop Byrnes is an answer to at least one of my prayers. It's the first sign — to me — of his sincerity when he told us "I belong to you today. I'm one of yours" last November.

    As noted by Anonymous at 1:53 PM this is certainly not the "very tiny change" that the Delusional Dingbat Diana wrote about in the 7 March post Lenten Announcement 2017. It's too big for the usual NCW Spin — I'm sure a gigantic Somersault, bolstered by the manipulation and mental gymnastics as mentioned by Jose M at 2:05 PM, is in the works.

    St. Athanasius, pray for us!

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle …

  5. As if the NCW gives a flip about the GIRM.

    If they refuse to respect the Sacred Species, Byrnes has to officially ban them from your churches. They aren't Catholic, so he would be within his rights to do so.

  6. Awesome. A copy of this letter is going straight to my Bishop.

    1. Hallelujah! Archbishop Michael J. Byrnes, you have taken a major step in restoring my faith (pun intended!) in you and the Archdiocese of Agana. Forgive me my cynicism, but for now these are only good sounding words. Once we see the actions to support these words, the faithful will come back to support you and the Church on Guam.

    2. 2:44pm, which bishop? Kiko, Gennarini, or Pius? Apuron was never a true Shepherd. He allowed himself to be manipulated and spun into a spider's Web. He took his orders from the three stooges. Tåya' backbone!

    1. Actually, he's left that to us.

  8. To me, this letter is akin to "the shot heard around the world"! and it should be spread by all means possible around the world. Let it go "viral"! Social media users, what are you waiting for?

  9. The Neo followers, who joined the NCW in their sincere search for ways to deepen their faith, should now confront their leaders and ask for the document which shows they were authorized to deviate from the approved way of celebrating the Holy Mass, in particular the way of receiving Holy Communion. If that document is not provided, then the Neo followers should just join the rest of the faithful in the regularly scheduled masses, at which they will be most welcome.

    2. We were told that we couldn't ask...

    3. How does one grow in their faith if they are not allowed to ask questions. This is exactly what turned me off when I attended the catechesis in Chalan Pago with Fr. Santiago, tricky dick eusebio and Fr. Francis Walsh. One cannot just follow blindly, that's the trouble with the NCW cult. Blind obedience, members are not allowed to think for them selves.

  10. LIES = NCW.....Any questions?

  11. Si Yu'us Ma'ase! Abp. Byrnes for your courage and leadership (and on the eve of the their patron St. Patrick and the anniversary of the arrest and disappearance of Fr. Louis Camacho)

    Soon, there will be more announcements regarding the NCW matter-

    Let me give you a little taste-

    The RMS is closing and land will be sold.

    Those pending ordinations have to go back to school.

    ALL seminarians will be sent back to country of origin.

    Ordained NCW priests will be evaluated psychologically and educationally and if found lacking. Will be given a "lighter" assignment and be made to go to school.

    Finally Guam can get rid of the cancer that is the NCW.

    Now that is what I call a Lenten Announcement!

  12. "the one Altar of Sacrifice"

    thanks be to God!

    and thank you, archbishop byrnes!

  13. Excellent letter!

    Is there any significance that Archbishop Byrnes signed the letter as Archbishop of Agana and not Coadjutor Archbishop of Agana???

  14. May I suggest that we all need to pray for AB Byrnes. He has put himself in the firing line of the NCW and he will have to face the full fury of their persecution. God Bless him and keep him, may His face shine upon him. I was in the NCW for 25 years a responsible and a catechist. I can reassure any NCW members that after 5 years outside the (dodgy) Way I am in conversion, in the Church and can see things clearly now that I couldn't see before. Coraggio. RETURN! peace be with you!

    1. Any animosity the NCW feels toward Bp. Byrnes is completely irrelevant because they are nothing but a diabolic, non-Catholic cult.

      What those reptiles need is someone like the former bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, Fabian Bruskewitz, who retired a few years ago. He would have formally excommunicated all of them like he did Catholic members of Planned Parenthood, Call to Action, the SSPX/Society of St. Pius X and certain other subversive organizations.

  15. Hallellujah! Praise the Lord!! Thank you, Archbishop Byrnes. I, too, have been praying for you and the new leadership of our Archdiocese to right the wrongs, start the healing and let the light and truth shine within and without. Perhaps, now is the time to reach out and invite our brothers and sisters in the NCW to come back into the fold. I realize that some may think it is too soon but with all the changes some may be hurt, confused and in need of some loving guidance. Now, if you would please start the long and arduous process of closing the RMS Seminary, I might just start to contribute to that weekly limosna once again.

  16. This is certainly a step in the right direction towards unity. But
    the proof is in the pudding...will the Neos concur or continue to
    practice with total disregard the rubrics of the Mass? We shall
    soon find out. Si Yu'us ma'ase, Abp. Byrnes for your clear & concise directive. Ann A.

  17. God Bless You AB Byrnes for taking the high road of truth on the matter of the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. This is in fact the greatest treasure of the Church, It is the sacrament of Christ himself, where we receive the Holy Trinity at each mass, therefore it has to be celebrated on a Consecrated Altar dignified for it is Holy. Following the GIRM is the only answer to the celebration of this Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. May God continue to guide you and protect you from the enemy.

  18. Breathtaking! PS Diana, per the GIRM, the Mensa is to be covered in white cloth and clear of decorations. No flowers strewn around. Got it, RIC? Probably not.

  19. Look at it this way. If Catholics invaded non-Catholic church services and tried to impose their Communion norms on them, what would happen? Someone would rightfully call the cops and have their asses thrown out for trespassing, disturbing the peace, etc. If they chose to resist the cops, they'd automatically be arrested.

    No reason why you can't do the same to the Neocats if they continue to disrupt your Masses.
