From The Diana:

Umm, Diana, Archbishop Apuron was here for all the years casino gambling has already been happening at the carnival. But...silence! If anything, the passage of this bill is an indictment of Apuron, because now that he's out of the way, maybe the legislature can get some real work done. 

I happen to know this for a fact: that Apuron was an impediment to almost everything good we tried to do. 


This is probably also where Apuron hid out in Rome.

Probably he lives in Via Del Mascherino, when he is in Rome. Officially that building is owned by Propagande Fide, i.e. by Filoni. NCW has some offices and an apartment in the attic.

Some have taken exception to this announcement in the San Vicente bulletin since it gives the impression that James Arriola went away to a seminary in Miami, was ordained, and has now returned home. And of course that is not the case.

Arriola did not just go away to study at an off-island seminary, he left this diocese to study, live, work, and be ordained for the diocese of Miami. Therefore he is not "our" priest.

But no so fast. Arriola is a neocat. And in the neocat world nothing is what it seems. Arriola is not only not a priest of this diocese, when it comes down to it, he is not a priest of the diocese of Miami either. 

He is first a neocat. And neocats always belong to their community. And since Arriola's community is in Barrigada, he is first a member of that community for life before he is anything else, including a priest for the diocese of Miami. 

Thus, from the neocat perspective, the announcement is correct. He is "our own" to the neocats, the same way Presbyter Alberto, who is supposedly "our pastor" to the people of Agat, abandoned the people of Agat during Holy Week a couple years ago to celebrate it with his community in the Canary Islands. 

The announcement, like neocat theology, traffics in half truths, without which the neocats would never survive. It says "his parish." Of course it's not his parish. Arriola has been assigned to a parish in "his" diocese of Miami. It's a half truth. 

It's also a half truth to even say that he is from the Barrigada parish. The neocats do not recognize "the parish." To them, parish-based Catholicism is dead and is to be replaced by the Kiko-community model. 

As a member of one of those communities, Arriola did not belong to the parish, he belonged to the community. The community just happened to be attached to the Barrigada parish, but only insofar as it could suck off its resources as every other neocat community does. 

So why is he here? Arriola left Guam purposely. He joined another diocese purposely. He chose to be ordained in another diocese purposely. He chose NOT to be a priest of the Archdiocese of Agana, so why are we celebrating him as one?

True, as a neocat, Arriola was probably ordered to go to Miami by his neocat hierarchy. But it was still his choice. No, what Arriola is doing here is what Apuron did for all his newly ordained RMS presybter boys on our dime: a victory tour. And over the many years he did this, it probably cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars.

But beyond this mess, we can be certain that as a neocat he has no respect for the bishop. To be sure, his victory tour which includes celebrating Mass, was organized and announced without any consideration of the requirement of canon law. A priest cannot just show up in a diocese in which he is not incardinated and celebrate Mass publicly. He must have the permission of the bishop of the diocese he is visiting. 

And while I understand the matter has been brought to the attention of Archbishop Byrnes and Arriola's Mass has been approved, to be sure, any permission procured was AFTER the fact since Arriola's arrival and schedule has been made known now ever since his ordination in Miami on May 13. 

By the way, what is not announced is that he will be doing, and probably already has done (since he has been here for several days), a Saturday night "eucharist" with his Barrigada neocat community, the only people in Guam who can actually say "our priest."

"Carmen, a saint of a high top category", Kiko dixit. 
Kiko always has/is/makes/needs the most, the best...or the worst, it depends on. 

As if many people did not remember how Carmen used to behave in public, as if many of us did not know which kind of personality she had, Kiko has to paint a new background of his first candidate for sanctity, but in a very different way of previous saints in the history of Catholic Church. He has to be -as always- unique. And Carmen, of course, is going to be a revolutionary saint, nothing seen before. 

A few time ago, Kiko has revealed Carmen talked in private to JesusChrist in a very loving language as her writtings show. It seems she kept her little sweetness for her diaries. 

I am not here to judge Carmen's inner thoughts or wishes. She was on right to say, think and feel in privacy what she wanted, as any of us. But, wanted or not, she was a public figure for half and a million of neocatechumenals. Worth, she was a moral and spiritual guide for them, specially for neocatechumenal women if we believe Kiko's word. 

Kiko told in front of millions of internet watchers during the last WYD in Poland that neocatechumenal women had seen how Carmen was absolutely free in her relationship with him, how Carmen was such a flag of truly neocatechumenal 'feminism' (saint feminism, of course). A strong woman who was not afraid to tell the truth to anybody, mean while in her lonelyness spoke to JesusChrist as her only love.

Here I will translate for you an anecdote which shows quite well what kind of character was Carmen in public. I hope if the Catholic Church needs to study in detail her figure this anecdote will help. Sadly, it is anonymous testimony appeared in a Facebook wall which has been published by Neocatecumenali's blog. 

It took place in 2000, when the WYD in Israel with John Paul II. Neocatechumenal pilgrims were happy because the Pope was to visit them in the Mount of Beatitudes, exactly where the Domus Galilaeae is. This is the testimony of a young woman who assisted the Kiko's meeting which normaly closes every international pilgrimage for neocatechumenal people. 

"The day grew gray, the sky stormed, but the hearts were still filled with expectations. I remember the Mount of Beatitudes packed with neocatechumenals waiting for the Holy Father. From where I was, I watched those colorful caps that distinguished the various communities, I felt the continuous sound, and I could discern a few neocatechumenal songs' notes from the sublime moment dictated by the wonderfully holy place.

I decided to run in the back, there was still much to wait, there Don Gianni contracted with some guy to get a colorful red cap, the yellow did not like him. Such an overhelming hilarity made me to sink into my thoughts.

I decided to stay away from any moral pollution and to take the best out of that event.

Soon after, I left the stage and the chaotic context. Suddenly and relentlessly, a voice began to give orders and to break that inner serenity that I had been able to conquer.

- Me: "What happens?"

- Carmen Hernández (originaly shouting in Spanish): "He creates problems! He does not listen to me! He is a disaster! A disaster!"

The truly disaster coincided with her altered nature.  
Unconsciously I tried to catch, with my fingers under my T-shirt, the Rosary and the little medal of Virgin Mary given to me, a day before, by Father Norberth in the kibbutz. 

Despite her agitation, she found enough time to concentrate on my actions, or maybe it was only the pretext which finished in her burst. At this point, a very heated, brief but intense conversation started. It made me exasperated! I refused her to be false in her catechesis. 

I told her, in my frustration, to avoid mentioning the Virgin Mary because of her lack of respect and intolerance!

She asked me to stay in my (asigned) place.

- Carmen Hernández: "You do not understand anything, maybe you think we are here because we love ourselves, we are nobody, you are nobody, we are here, useless, insignificant, to thank God, take off of your arrogance, you do not have the gift of  obedience! Go! Go away! Ask God for forgiveness!"

I looked at her astonished, with my soul in state of agitation I told her, "I'm not insignificant, I am the daughter of God!" I started crying and went away before she could come again to persecute my choice of wearing those holy objects. 

I remember with difficulty the remaining events of that day, my mind was exasperately focused on the tormented event that happened with Carmen.

I was surprised to notice her metamorphosis in the continuation of the day, exactly in the timidity of the events. I began to wonder if she was bipolar or if she was simply cunning and false. Prophets for the second ..... " (End).
Source: Translated from original in Italian, posted in Neocatecumenali.

Yes, that was Carmen, the upper saint. A woman full of rage, unpleasant, rude, ungobernable, stubborn like a mule in her relations with common people. But this anecdote shows something worst.
If she treated her supposedly "little brothers and sisters in faith" in such way, it is better not to know how bad she would be with her "equals" (if they existed, of course). 

Not to talk about the "reason" Carmen found to humilliate that young woman: A pendant imagine of Virgin Mary and a Rosary around her neck, which she weared with devotion!

How can it be possible? It is NOT the first time at all I heard of Carmen's hate on those catholic sacramentals. Carmen hated all imaginery devotion. That is why is so strange what Kiko tells about her personal writtings, where she repeteatedly called JesusChrist as "Gesú". In the end, she was just acting in private in the opposite way she used to do publicly. 

Because the laughing on the image of the Sacred Core of Jesus was such a must in their predication, the absurdity -for them- of many popular devotions, definetly, their identification of all those things with the hypocrisy of the christians of Sunday, natural religious people, etc.

Nothing more distant than Kiko and Carmen from the catholic devotion for the Virgin and the saints through lighting candles, praying novenas, attending processions and such. Very surprising.

Suddenly Carmen was able to tell neocatechumenal pilgrims a bible on the beauty of a romanic crucifix at the same time she was horrified by the Rosary attached at Kiko's belt. It was not just a personal opinion, not just a question of like. She hated those things. Can a truly saint hate Virgin Mary devotion?

Many people just think Carmen was a spoiled rich girl, many that she suffered some kind of mental illness (I agree), of course never diagnosed. Nor Kiko nor her could admit she had it, because all their catechesis about the origin of mental illness could have compromised both. They were always obsessed with the hidden sin under each depression, for example. 

They have always denied the healing with psychiatrist and psychologyst's help. Only God was the salvation for those who suffered any mental disorder. Applying their own criteria, both must be hidden sinners without redemption, because their respective strange behavioural symptoms were there, in front of our noses. Maybe Carmen was bipolar, maybe borderline, who knows? The only thing I am sure she was not 'normal' at all. 

For those who think I am exagerating, please read some commentaries posted by former members about the related anecdote in Neocatecumenali:

Somebody who signs as @ex-fratello (former brother) says: "In a nutshell, the true purpose of these two impostors: to humiliate, to denigrate, to undo the dignity of every human being to make them puppets in their hands ("you do not have the gift of obedience!"), the Devil disguised as a lamb!
It is true that Carmen is a top class saint, but of the demon's army!

Catechumens who are still into the Way and have doubts, run out, free yourself from this sect, open your mind, analyze what you say and do and you will realize that you are all speaking the same words, doing the same reasoning and worse, accusing yourself of being wrong when you make a mistake and losing the path of God, the true merciful. I still have troubles believing that God loves me as I am and I still have so many false guilty feelings that have been overwhelmed by 20 years into the NCW! Even though in good faith you believe that the NCW is not perfect and you justify it because it is done by men, you are silent about your conscience who is telling you to go out because it is not a question of human limits but brainwashing studied and calculated by these two impostors."

@Valentina Giusti posted: St. Louis de Grignion in the "Treatise of True Devotion to Mary" had very well identified the type of "devotee" to which Carmen belonged, defining it as one of the seven false devotions to the Virgin inspired by the Devil.
This is the devout "critic": below the description he did.

Critical devotees are usually proud intellectuals, strong and presumptuous spirits, who have a certain devotion to the Blessed Virgin, but who criticize almost all of its practices that simple people simply and holyly address to this good Mother. They criticize them because such practices are not of their taste; Call into question all the miracles and stories brought by authors who are worthy of faith, or drawn from the chronicles of religious orders, which testify to the mercy and power of the Blessed Virgin; They look with discomfort for simple and humble people kneeling in front of an altar, or a picture of the Virgin, sometimes in a corner of the street, to pray to God; And accuse them of idolatry, as if they worshiped wood or stone; They say that - as far as they are concerned - they do not like these external devotions and are not so weak in spirit to add to the faith all those stories and stories about the Holy Virgin. When the wonderful praises that the Holy Fathers tribute to the Blessed Virgin are then told, they respond by saying that they have spoken by speakers, exaggerating, or giving them an altered explanation. This kind of false devotees and proud and humble people is very much to be feared; They make a huge mistake to the Blessed Virgin and manage to divert the people, with the pretext of extirpating abuses".

Among many others extraordinary comments in Neocatecumenalis, just mention one very valuable which I hope Diana and Guam neocatechumenal's could read someday. An Spanish man, called Jose Antonio, says: 

"We were raised as a family on mission and we went to the covivence of sending to Porto San Giorgio in October of the year 2000. It coincided with the Jubilee of the Families and there were in Rome representatives of several movements. Carmen Hernández criticized Chiara Lubich. She messed with her hair (I think she was envious because she was a very elegant woman) but the worst thing is that she got into her charisma. She said who was going to believe that woman to accompany Christ abandoned.
I believe that the process to canonize Carmen will never begin, but if it were so I would testify on the Sacred Scriptures that what I say is true.
Many greetings from Santiago de Compostela".

That is the point. Kiko and Carmen always ridiculizing the rest of (non-neocatechumenal) catholics. No matter if you were a founder or a simple family man. If you are not in the NCW, your faith is just ridiculous. I am glad some former members can remain Carmen's words in front of hundreds and thousands of neocatechumenals, until the point of offering to testify in front of an ecclesiastical court if needed. Bravo!

@Tripudio, one of Neocatecumenali's editors, says: "True objections concern the spiritual life of Carmen, like anyone else, Christian virtues, attitudes about the truths of faith and the sacraments: it may happen that somebody faithfully lives poverty, chastity and obedience, and then teaches some wrong doctrine Or live in a superficial way (if not a bit hostile) sacraments. The great heretics of the past were all so, for most of the ascetic specimens (remember, for example, Pelagio, càtari, Giansenio ...) and at the same time cheating on the truths of faith.

Christianity, in fact, is not a list of moral rules. Christian morality is the result, not the premise of faith. When the wealthy young man explains to Jesus that he has an excellent moral life, Jesus responds to something that obfuscates him. That is, the fact that to consecrate to the Lord does not suffice an impeccable moral life. The tension towards Christian virtues is a result of the life of faith, for the Christian understands that sins are at least an obstacle to union with God.

Even on the NCW, as in all other ecclesial groups, making canonization of its founders is the most comfortable from all points of view: that of ecclesial marketing, that of member identity, that of self-justification of the capibastone (mafia boss), that of the "original charism to be rediscovered "when there is nothing to say, that of silencing those who raise well-founded criticism, and so on.

Unfortunately, John Paul II has left us an annoying legacy: in the very good intent of unlocking canonization causes that had long been devastated (and without him they would remain firm in the archives for who knows how many other years), he left a bit too free to what they call in jargon "the factory of the saints". Today, unfortunately, it is no longer taught that the levels of holiness of souls can be varied - and for example, to recall the charism of a Saint Francis, which spans eight centuries over the charism of a saint founder of a small institute, venerated practically only by those who directly have known him.

The Summits of the Way -Kiko in the head, who, five years ago, was distributing his sanctity- have everything to earn to make the "saint (Carmen)" who personally have verified to have been an arrogant person, exhausted by the power she had longed for since he was a disgruntled nun in Madrid's shacks, and above all a teacher, a shameless, ambiguous, fundamentally heretical doctrine, never recognizing her own mad mistakes, always considering her "inspirations" (by the Devil) most important elucubrations of the Church's doctrine. Considering her as infallible by stirring up an ecclesial recognition means bringing innumerable souls to ruin (in addition to what the Way has already damed)".

This is the answer written by Pax, a Italian neocatechumenal former member to last Kiko Argüello's letter asking for more cash money (500.000 euros) for his 'new evangelization of the world'. Here is the translation from original in Italian

"Dearest Kiko:

Once I read your letter of request of financial aid to all neocatechumenal brothers and sisters in Europe, dated on May 20 2017 Madrid, in my light of my experience in the NCW for several decades, which finished with my abandonment some years ago, I feel my duty to adress this letter to you.

I feel you are a little anguished and very worried by an eventual need to stop the "Merkaba: the Fire Carriage of Evangelization", which, as you say, without a substantial, solicitous and generous contribution of fresh money, will no longer have its extraordinary and supernatural propulsion power in its wheels, which allows it to reach the four corners of the earth at the same time.

In this case, there were two victims of Apuron, the now deceased Sonny Quinata, and his brother, Champ, who had to live with the secret memory for forty years. 

Apuron accuser's family meets with new archbishop

Archbishop Michael Jude Byrnes met in private for the first time with a family who says their life has been broken by Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron. Forty years ago, he allegedly raped the now deceased, former altar boy Joseph "Sonny" Quinata. CONTINUED

Also, read Champ's full testimony before the legislature here. Watch it here. Note to the Vatican: THIS IS WHY WE MARCH!




"The lawsuit says around 1994, Torres' father took him to the Guam Police Department and filed a complaint. Caluag was never arrested."- Guam PDN

In this case, Troy Torres and his father have a duty to pursue the Guam Police Department and find out what happened to his complaint. The criminal statute of limitations would not have expired at the time of the report and the police would have been required to investigate. Was there an investigation? Where is it? 


If you want to know why our Church is in such great trouble it is because bought and paid for bishops like Sean O'Malley of Boston continue to ordain hostile, hateful, and unholy RMS-deformed children like Wellington Oliveira.

Here is reminder of who Wellington Oliveira is:

When I look at the faces of Adrian and Edivaldo (at their recent appearance in Miami) and remember all the lies, the sneers, the deception, the fist pumps, and the sheer hell these two polluted excuses brought on our diocese, I can think of no other description of them but "evil." 

However, "evil" gives these two too much credit. Someone in a recent comment called them CRY BABIES. And that description seems a lot more apt. Not only did the two of the bawl, and cry, and kick their feet at their new assignments (Adrian to Umatac and Edivaldo to DOC), they both have a long history of tantrums and pouting, especially Adrian. 

Edivaldo we can probably even overlook since he was probably only seduced into RMS by the boy-loving Tony. And once here, was fed with the fat stuffings from Tony Boy's fleshy table. However, Adrian is another matter. 

He has been a cry baby for decades, pouting and throwing tantrums (as well as actual material objects) whenever he didn't get his way or when he felt he was overlooked, like when he got passed up for the "Msgr." label, or when he felt he wasn't getting paid enough

Pray for the salvation of their souls but don't ever feel sorry for these two. They chose their paths. They chose themselves over the truth, the salvation of souls, and the good of the Church. And they still are.

Tony Boy was there too, but probably in disguise. (Didn't have time to suffer through the video to find him, but help yourself.)

I understand the losers at the other blog - having nothing else to do - are still trying to exonerate Apuron by re-condemning Fr. Paul and Msgr. James - which is where the avalanche that buried Apuron and his sycophants began. 

I'll be brief by restating what I stated at every CCOG village meeting - that even if all of the allegations against the two priests were true, Apuron's real CRIME was his public mistreatment of both. 

Diocesan priests are a bishop's "sons." His public mistreatment of both "sons" was the equivalent of father calling up the media to publicly humiliate his own child. 

THIS is what set people off and set the wheels in motion which led to all that followed. The faithful on Guam are forgiving to a fault. However, the one thing you don't do is air your family's dirty laundry, particularly in the secular media.

But this is precisely what Apuron did. Or did he? 

Actually Apuron did not do any of this. He did not demand Fr. Paul's resignation. He did not threaten him with a "more painful and arduous closure to (his) assignment" if he did not resign. He did not make the list of charges against Msgr. James. He did not force Msgr. James out of the Cathedral.  He did not publish all those accusations against Msgr. James in the media. And Apuron did not sign over the Yona property to the control of the Gennarini's. 

Nope. Apuron did not do any of those things. All of this was done by the evil steps sons, David the Villain and Adrian the Lame, at the direction of that witch of a man, Pius the Putrid. Apuron signed off on it all. And why? Because this filthy trio had Tony Boy by the $%#@. 

This was the plan from the beginning. This is why Adrian brought Pius and the neocats to Guam. David and Adrian knew of Tony Boy's history with boys. And just as Tony Boy used his predecessor's history to manipulate his own episcopal appointment, Adriana, with the aid of the filthy impostor, Putrid, had in mind the same. 

They almost succeeded.

A few days ago Kiko Argüello has sent an internal communication letter which shows some interesting information about how the gigantic Neocatechumenal Way's machinery survives at a financial and fiscal level.

Sooner or later we are able to know every movement done by Kiko because both he and his followers are not precisely a model of prudence. I cannot reveal how that letter came to a former member's hands but I can asure she wanted me to post it to Jungle Watch, as well as she has sent it for Cruxsancta.

Picket Signs should include "Defrock David Quitugua". This clown has been working against the Catholic Church in Guam. He was involved in the firing of Fr. James, and Fr. Paul, the Firing of the Finance Council, the giving away of the Yona property by falsifying documents and lying about the title. Quitugua was remiss in his duties as Vicar General, and failed to be an effective truthful advisor to Apuron. As a member of the NCW, he chose to betray the trust and generosity of the Guam faithful who paid for him to get his canon law degree. Defrock Quitugua, he can have the NCW take care of him.

The work being done by Lino Lista and the companions of the Italian blog Neocatecumenali to comparatively analyze the original mamotretos of the Neocatechumenal Way and its version corrected by the Holy See is crucial to dismantle Kiko Argüello and his sectarian charisma.

I also want to publicly thank Charles White for his translation work so that those findings will be available in English. The Neocatechumenal Way is not a local problem, it is a global problem. The same heresies and deviations recur, again and again, where the Neocatechumenal Way lands.

It does not matter if you are a former member of the Way of Guam or Italy, your experience will be virtually identical to that experienced by former members of Canada or Pakistan. Of course, Italy and Spain are the countries with the longest experience in terms of the Neocatechumenal Way, where it emerged and expanded in the early years and for decades the test laboratory of Kiko and Carmen.

On May 10, in The Guam Daily Post, attorney Bill Pesch accused Department of Public Health and Social Services Director James Gillan of making "bogus" statements and of perpetrating "absolute nonsense."

The "absolute nonsense," according to Pesch, is Gillan's claim that Guam law prevents the director of Public Health from modifying a birth certificate to include the name of a lesbian parent as "father."

Pesch states that he is "not familiar with any law that says the legislature is responsible for designing birth certificates," and claims that Gillan has the authority to modify the certificate. CONTINUED

All of the really hard stuff we are having to work through right now in this archdiocese is a direct consequence of the mess Archbishop Hon created. And while Hon eventually came around to the truth and began to do the right thing, he made an absolute mess of this diocese. And it is primarily because of him that the archdiocese is facing millions in law suits.

Here's why.

Our LIVE FEED in the right side bar is not actually live. Some changes awhile back turned the LIVE FEED into a static snapshot of up to the moment views. To watch the actual LIVE FEED go here. It's quite interesting to see where people are logging in from.

The Vatican appears to remain an active observer (via the country counter) here

GUAM DAILY POST: Guam Catholic school sued

"The civil complaint accuses the archdiocese and St. Anthony of causing parents or guardians to entrust their children to Catholic school teachers and specifically to Caluag, resulting in B.W.J. participating in out-of-school activities with Caluag and spending one or more nights at the teacher's home." FULL STORY HERE

I myself have had SERIOUS hesitations about some of the faculty some Catholic schools embrace, which is why I have chosen NOT to send my kids to one (except for a brief experiment with St. Thomas Aquinas). 

I have no doubt that the accusers account is true and I hope he finds justice. I also hope that Catholic schools stop flirting with disaster with their peculiar hiring practices. (I'll leave the details of that for later.) 

Meanwhile, though, more parents (and guardians) need to STOP believing that the word "Catholic" in front of the name of a school is a guarantee of anything, including actual Catholic instruction. 

Sadly, I believe this accusation is just the beginning of an avalanche of accusations agains Catholic schools, a perfect place for predators. 


SNAP: Not optimistic about Apuron canonical trial

SNAP's narrative is that you people on Guam are too stupid to do this yourself so you need us. And beyond that, SNAP and the attorneys they feed NEED us to fail. Because should we succeed, should we actually get Apuron thrown out of town, should we actually restore our church all on our own, should we actually get justice for the victims of child sex abuse, we will have shown the rest of the world that they can do it too and they don't need groups like SNAP and their "superlawyer" friends. 

WE are going to clean up our church and we don't need SNAP's slimy hands on it:

I am receiving a lot of comments accusing different clerics of many different things. Unless you are willing to go public with your accusations and stand by them as John Toves, Roy Quintanilla, Walter Denton, Roland Sondia, and others have done - that means put your name and your face to your accusations and name calling - do not expect to see your comments here. As far as I am concerned you are as bad as the people you condemn because you are even more a part of the "legacy of silence." Find another blog.

We are now at 65 law suits for clergy sex abuse. And there are many, many more.

Aside from the allegations brought against Anthony S. Apuron personally, allegations he contests, there is the matter of something he cannot contest: the fact that he permitted dozens if not hundreds of damaged children to suffer decades of silence.

Contrary to the cases brought against him personally which Apuron can lie about till the day he dies, he cannot lie about these many other victims, especially those who were violated by Louis Brouillard. 

Brouillard had already been shipped off island by Archbishop Flores by 1981, five years before Apuron became Archbishop of Agana, but Apuron was fully aware of WHY Brouillard had been "deported" by his predecessor.

Apuron's larger "crime" was knowing Brouillard's very long history of sex abuse - and his doing NOTHING to seek out and help Brouillard's mountain of victims. 

Apuron has argued that he was advised to keep quiet about Brouillard, and that in those pre "Spotlight" days, moving abusive priests around or quietly removing them from ministry was the way things were handled then. 

Yes. As wrong as it was, that was the way things were handled. But we are not talking about what was done with Brouillard. We are talking about what was NOT done with the dozens of damaged and suffering souls who were Apuron's responsibility once he assumed the title Archbishop of Agana. 

Those souls were Apuron's responsibility and Apuron did NOTHING. In fact, I know from speaking with some, that John Toves was not the first person to be chased "off chancery hill." 

And why did he do nothing? 

Obviously, with the history of his own abuse that is now exposed, Apuron was compromised from the outset. Reaching out to Brouillard's victims would have brought forward other victims: his own. 

How many souls were lost because Apuron needed to cover his own tracks? How many left the faith? How many have despaired? How many took their own lives or otherwise self destructed. 

Guam's suicide rate is 50% higher than the rest of the nation. How much did Apuron's decades of silence about these dozens if not hundreds of victims contribute to this shameful fact?

And more shamefully, in addition to our horrible suicide rate, Guam now leads the nation in clergy sex abuse. 

Compared to the numbers published in the 2002 John Jay College of Criminal Justice Study, Guam's clergy sex abuse rate is already 400% higher than the national average: 

The Study reported that out of a population of approximately 70 Million Catholics, there were 10,667, individual victims or 0.02% of the Catholic population between 1950 and 2002. With just the 65 victims who have sued the Archdiocese of Agana, all of whom were abused within the same period, compared to the estimated Catholic population of about 80,000, our victim rate SO FAR is 0.08%. 

This is the legacy of Anthony S. Apuron: an immeasurable devastation of lives, an incomprehensible destruction of the faith of so many. But it is also the legacy of those who remained silent. 


Message from Lou Klitzkie:

 Hafa Adai, everyone,

All Apuron's victims have testified to the Tribunial Council, that means the case will wrap up soon, maybe in the next month. We must show Rome and the whole world that we are determined and persistent in picketing to oust Apuron.

Do not lose sight of our mission in this battle. " Remove and Defrock Apuron". Please bring your family and friends Sunday, May 14, 2017, 9 to 9:45AM in front of the Cathedral Basilica.

St. Michael the Archangel  Defend us in Battle!!

Lou Klitzkie, LFM

SMH. Apuron, what an embarrassment.


Choosing to destroy ‘a developing human being’

In "Gillan: Law prevents change to birth certificate for gay couple" (May 11, The Guam Daily Post), we learn of a lesbian couple who is suing the government of Guam for attorney fees related to their efforts to have both their names on the birth certificate of a baby that one of the women gave birth to after the child was conceived via "in vitro fertilization."

In today's GUAM DAILY POST, there is the story about a lesbian couple who is suing the Government of Guam for attorney's fees related to their efforts to have both their names on the birth certificate of a baby which one of the women gave birth to after the child was "conceived" via in vitro fertilization, courtesy of Dr. Thomas Shieh. 

Aside from the same-sex issue and whether or not the child has any rights, there is the matter of in vitro fertilization. Many Christians, and even Catholics I know do NOT know that the process involves the destruction of human beings.
