KUAM: Byrnes: archdiocese was a mess under Apuron's leadership

"I think it would be a disaster if Archbishop Apuron were to return as the bishop of record. And again, that's my opinion. My estimation. It's based on nothing that I've heard from Rome, but really, sincerely, from my experience." - Archbishop Michael Byrnes. July 6, 2017


  1. From Archbishop Byrnes' comments, I gather that the verdict on apuron will not be based on charges of sexual abuse, but more of mismanagment. If so, will that result in apuron's defrocking? But if apuron is not defrocked, will we still have to support him for the rest of his life? And will we still have to bury him in the Agana Cathedral?

    1. Defrocking is up to the pope, not the trial.

  2. Bp. Byrnes is right. Praying for the best, but bracing for the worst. Same thing I've been saying all along. The corrupt Vatican cannot be trusted.
