ARCHDIOCESE SEEKING BANKRUPTCY REORGANIZATION

Guam Daily Post
Mindy Aguon, November 7, 2018



The Archdiocese of Agana is seeking bankruptcy reorganization as it faces more than 180 claims of sexual abuse allegedly perpetrated primarily by certain former Catholic priests on Guam.

The move will allow the archdiocese to maintain normal operations while also establishing a process to sell some of its assets so that money will be distributed equitably to the victims and survivors of clergy sex abuse, who filed lawsuits on Guam, as well as other creditors. CONTINUED

Voting for these candidates is giving more power to that occult sect, hellbent on power.
This means that rather than making things more easy for Guam, you will implant a disease inside a political process already deeply flawed.

Don't forget who is behing these folks


NCW self appointed guru
Kiko Arguello Wirth


Former Red Brigade, US Boss
Gennarini


Pervert Extraordinaire

IS LLG IN A PICKLE? WHY BUYING OFF THE NEOS AND SOME OF THE LOCAL CLERGY MIGHT BACKFIRE.


(Posted by Frenchie)
Despite out spending, out advertising, slandering her opposition, and buying her way through the local journalist little caste , LLG is finding herself in a pickle just two days short of probably the most consequential election on Guam in the last quarter of a century.

The biggest abortion apologist on island, is trying to distance herself from that hard fact, in order not to scare the honest church going faithful who are still undecided, and who most likely shall be the king makers in a very tight and hotly contested triangular Governor's race.

Lieutenant Governor Tenorio having awaken from his hiding place of the past three months, has come out swinging, while Senator Aguon's writing in campaign is gathering steam, thanks to the support of a dedicated base, which feels (rightly) having been robbed of a primary victory, by a combination of attack ads and less than honest Election commission's decisions.

Lou and her team of Neocats, and less than stellar business cadre, succeeded in brow beating UOG and the Rotary Club in not allowing the Aguon/Limtiaco team to participate in their debate.
That was actually very telling of the desperation and frustration of the LLG campaign.
They understand well the danger of the Aguon's appeal within the Democratic base, and the possible cross voters from the republican party.

Unfortunately we are probably going to see during the next two days a combination of sweeping ad campaign from Lou&Josh, (who have already out spent all the candidates combined), with a continued mud racking from its team of social media hit men.

While the Umatuna Si Yu'os shared this picture front and center of this weekend edition, right next to an article about voting according to Catholic values.
They could not have chosen a better picture to highlight the conundrum, we are facing thanks to the poor decisions and positions of these two priests.

HISSING SOUNDS ONLY

As we now well know, current Bank of Guam president and Democratic nominee for governor, Lou Leon Guerrero, opposes normal medical care for children who survive a failed abortion. She infamously opposed it at a legislative hearing in 2013 (Bill 195-13), and, unless she says otherwise, she apparently still opposes NORMAL medical care for children who survive a failed abortion.

ONE WEEK TO GO, AND THE NCW PLAN IS UNRAVELING.

(posted by Frenchie)


Just as one last debate is still on, LLG continues to "rope a dope"on most of the tough issues, continuing instead in avoiding the write in candidate, and attacking the republican candidate, who until a couple of weeks ago had avoided the limelight, but who suddenly found a new life by bringing forward the issue of abortion.

Of course her NCW cadre who are some of the best at avoiding to address real issues, by hiding them under a cloud of distractions, have coached her not to use that word, and instead speak of a
 culture of life.

What is a culture of life LOU?

When you endorse Abortion, the despicable destruction of a living being by tearing apart piece by piece their limbs, how can you talk of a culture of life?
When you endorse Planned Parenthood, that Eugenic entity who profits from the sale of babies' parts,how can you talk of a culture of life?
When you spend millions of dollars on advertising to drown any opposing voice,
how can you talk of a culture of life?
When you embark in a campaign of lies against your own party's opponents, by destroying their reputation and their record, How can you talk of a culture of life?
When you use identity politics, and nativism to attack your opponent, how can you talk of a
culture of life? 

Well ladies and gentlemen, you "Deflect, Deny and Destroy"

For the long time followers of this blog, doesn't this remind you of something very disturbing and familiar?
For our less regular followers, or new readers: it is the core of the tactics of the 
Neocatecumenate Way

  
That cancer which hide itself inside the Catholic Church , like an evil retrovirus, to better destroy the host body.

BOO!

DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR PRAISES PLANNED PARENTHOOD

2018 Democratic candidate for Guam governor tells a crowd that she is "for life," while praising the nation's number one killer of children and purveyor of baby body parts. (Video here).

Given that both of Guam's infamous abortion clinics are now closed due to the retirement of both abortionists, it is quite possible that, if elected, she will invite Planned Parenthood to Guam...

...to make it easier to kill more Chamorro babies.


See Official 2017 Abortion Report for Guam at the EsperansaProject blog

 Meanwhile, officials at the local chancery, the same people who enabled Apuron's thirty year perverted reign of terror, chastise us for standing against this genocide. Read more at the Esperansa blog.

LOU LEON GUERRERO: "i DID NOT LIE"? A DEMOCRAT VERSION OF NIXON?

Richard Nixon historical declaration: "I am not a crook" after he was caught covering up for illegal activities, has found a delayed echo in the Marianas, with Lou Leon Guerrero: " I did not lie" declaration, following the accusations by the Aguon team, that they had the evidence regarding the attack ads and social media hit pieces they have been victims of, came from the Leon Guerrero campaign.

Of course NOBODY in the local media is talking about the 800lb gorilla in the room.

FAKE JOURNALISM AT PNC TAKING SIDE WITH LLG

(Posted by Frenchie)


Sycophant extraordinaire, wannabe journalist, and brown noser to the rich and famous,
Jeffrey Marchesseault, of PNC News firts, did not miss the opportunity to prove that when it came down to fake journalism, Guam had nothing to envy the Mainland.

In his column of Tuesday October 16, titled "Broadching and Bridging the Abortion Divide"; our local candidate for the best platitudes in journalism, did a fantastic job, demonstrating how low people of the fourth estate can stoop to, when their career ambitions inspire them to defend untenable positions.

I think the level of disinformation and fake balance of that particular piece, was an amazing demonstration of the elasticity of journalism, when it comes to describe the mental split necessary to achieve, in order to bridge fiction with reality.

Lets be sure that the LOU & Josh campaign cadre will have appreciated his emulation of the best plagiarism of a Neocat's speech.

FIGHTING FOR LIFE OR JUST BEING WISHY WASHY?

Last week seemed to have been quite rocky at the Umatuna  Si Yu'os
The revelations about the lack of reactions from the folks at the KOLG radio station,
regarding the conflict of interest created by their GM, Therese Arroyo Matanane, taking a paid job in the Abortionist advocate Lou Leon Guerrero's gubernatorial campaign,created quite a stir.





The unexplained lack of concern from people in charge, were not mirrored by the general public. Soon after the publication of the two article addressing this issue, on this blog, several local political actors, bloggers and pundits finally started to pick up the ball and go to work on this issue.

Yet in last week paper version of the Umatuna Si Yu'os, it was easy to see the uncomfortable balancing act taken  by the editor of the local Catholic paper.
While front and center was an excellent article written by Marilu Martinez on the life chain that took place the weekend prior, with the participation of hundreds of selfless volunteers, it was juxtaposed by a much less stellar article titled  "Voting with a Catholic conscience", which was notable by its inability to address real issues front and forward, but instead was very vague on almost all issues.
This  last article being what the common man call shooting blanks.

It is notable that in a very unusual election year on Guam, with many turns and twists, we find our Catholic medias being typically wishy wahsy.
The contrast with the faithful who volunteer, their time, effort and money in protecting life from its inception until natural death, could not be more evident.


It is as if our priest were afraid on confronting an evil without equal .
Of course we know well the lack of courage of some of our priests.
While it is greatly disheartening, it does not mean that the laity has to take it lying down.

From the reactions to these revelations, we can see many are doing just that.

What is our low energy Vicar General going to do about it?
We are waiting, but our patience has limits.
Perhaps it is time to start showing some leadership or get out of the way.

DON'T WE DESERVE BETTER THAN A BUNCH OF AMATEURS??

A follow up on our story on KOLG's manager conflict of interest.

One might think that the people responsible at the Chancery for the integrity of their offices would take things seriously .
Unfortunately it does not seem to be the case.

Pale Mike, who was just voted best parish priest in the Pika yearly survey, apparently does not have much common sense.
Surely he is a nice guy, but we need leaders, not nice guys.

As the go to, responsible for KOLG, Pale Mike should have asked Therese Arroyo Matanane, the general manager of the island's Catholic radio station, for her immediate resignation, as soon as he was made aware of her decision to take a paid position as Press secretary for the Campaign of Lou Leon Guerrero.

Instead nothing happened.
Even when members of the staff threatened to quit over the issue, the reaction of the Chancery was a lackluster series of attempt at covering their butt.
A first meeting was cancelled at the last minute, and finally when this blog exposed the whole disaster, another meeting was convened, which did not amount to much.


I guess 30 years of Apuron's leadership cannot be wiped out overnight.
The Best thing Father Mike, Tony Diaz (the communication director) and Paul Fisher (the Chancellor) could come up with was that Mrs Mantanane was on a leave of absence.

MORE CONFLICT OF INTEREST ON THE LLG CAMPAIGN????

This past Sunday, hundreds of courageous souls braved the inclement weather  (some had to face biblical rainfall, while others had to find relief from a pounding Sun) to be counted in the fight against that barbaric plague (but often portrayed as an advancement for women) that is abortion. 

These brave people did so, because they believe in the teachings of their Church, which tell us that every life is precious.
The debate is not new. The Greek philosophers already debated on the morality of such procedure.
The Jewish scholars have codified very precisely what is considered life, and therefore what is the murder of a child or not.
We as Catholics are steadfast in our belief that abortion is murder, it is an infanticide, plain and simple.

In the early 20th century a new school of racial "specialists" advanced many new theories. Among them was Eugenics, a very dangerous idea, which advocates the practices that aim at improving the quality of the genetics of the human population.

Some of the solutions proposed were sterilization, (see above) but also outlawing inter racial marriage, and abortion. The founder of planned parenthood (an oxymoron if there ever was one) Margaret Sanger, was one of the pioneer advocate of Eugenics. Her main goal, in promoting abortion was the control of black and brown populations, by reducing the birth rate of minorities and therefore allowing white elites on the East Coast to advance their racial agenda. Never forget that it was Woodrow Wilson, who resurrected the KKK in the 1920s, and supported the Jim Crow laws and segregation in the South. All of them were democrats, and all of them started portraying this dangerous philosophy as an advancement for the cause of women's equality.
The same people that are now claiming they are defending women's rights are the ones that advocated for the control of minorities birth rates (through abortion) and the laws barring interracial marriages.

What does that have to do with us here on Guam, you might ask?

 A lot my friends, because the biggest advocate for abortion on our island is
 LOU LEON GUERRERO

And Lou Leon Guerrero could well be our next Governor.

APURON FOUND GUILTY BY CARDINAL O'BRIEN

By Tim Rohr
The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, formerly known as Our Lady of Victory and Feast of the Holy Rosary, is a feast day of the Roman Catholic Church, celebrated on 7 October, the anniversary of the decisive victory of the combined fleet of the Holy League of 1571 over the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Lepanto.

It is time to go public on this.

The attack on myself and my family has been going on ever since I stepped into the arena in July 2013. It was only a matter of months before the Vatican itself tried to shut me down in the person of Cardinal Edwin O'Brien, currently the Grand Master of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem, of which I am a member.



In October of 2013, only a few months after I began to publicly engage the atrocities of the now convicted and sentenced Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron, I received a letter from Cardinal Edwin O'Brien essentially ordering me to cease and desist or be removed from the Order.

I responded (as I always do) with a litany of facts.

Sunday, November 17, 2013

I never heard from O'Brien again until I wrote him on March 24, 2018, after the Apuron verdict was released.

In his response to me, O'Brien CONFIRMS that Apuron was convicted and sentenced for the crimes of the sex abuse of minors.

In fact, since the actual crimes were never detailed by the Vatican, O'Brien's personal email to me is probably the ONLY actual statement admitting what Apuron was actually accused, convicted, and sentenced for: THE SEX ABUSE OF MINORS. 

However, before I share with you the email exchange between myself and O'Brien of March 2018, it is worth noting that O'Brien himself was named in the now famous Vigano letter as part of the Vatican homosexual cabal.

EPISCOPAL SODOMY: EXPOSING CDL. EDWIN O’BRIEN

Is it any wonder why O'Brien tried to shut me down FIVE YEARS AGO? He must have known that if one bishop would fall (Apuron) he, and many others were sure to follow. And so they have...and so they ARE!

And it is for this that certain members of my family were recruited to destroy and discredit me - though I do not think they even have the slightest inkling of what and who is really behind all this.

Here is the exchange between O'Brien and myself of March 2018:

Your Eminence:

In your letter to me of 10 October 2013 (attached) you accused me of: 
  1. “undermining” then-Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron’s “legitimate authority,”
  2. creating “serious divisions in the Church in Guam,” and of
  3. activity “surely not in keeping with the conduct of a faithful member of our Order.”
You then threatened to remove me from the Order if I continued to denounce the now former Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron.

Now that Anthony S. Apuron, former Archbishop of Agana, has been found guilty by a Vatican Tribunal on charges which included the sexual abuse of minors (Vatican Bulletin attached), and has not only been removed from office by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith but banished from the Archdiocese of Agana for life, may I request that you send me a letter retracting your threat to remove me from the Order.

Asking humbly for your cooperation,

APURON'S LEGACY, ON GUAM's POLITICAL SCENE.

Posted by Frenchie

A full two years after his hurried escape from Guam, Apuron's shadow has diminished at least in the Catholic Church, even if the Neos are still very present, albeit in a less opened approach.
The consequences of his actions are still very much part of the local picture.

One area his presence is still very much felt, because of the profound impact of his corruption, is the political arena. 

While for many, he is already a thing of the past, following the old "out of sight, out of mind" rule, it is easy to find the remnant of his 30 years reign on Guam.

Even then, we might not be totally rid of him for sure, as I exposed in my post last week.

Part of Apuron long term legacy is of course, the presence on Guam of the Neos.
I have shown previously, that despite their setbacks at the Archdiocese level, they have taken a lower profile, but continued their expansion.
In the Church, they continue to be very present, thanks to the new Vicar General, who still continues to play both side of the fence, (appointing more neos to more parishes).
Their new Neocatecumenate center in Asan (where the old WWII museum was) is up and running, giving them a lot more flexibility for meetings, and assuring a better control on their troops.

Their major move is still not in the Church, at this time on Guam.
Their goal is the conquest of political power.

WHAT POPE FRANCIS ERRATIC POSITIONS, MEAN FOR GUAM AND FOR APURON

(Posted by Frenchie)

Pope Francis, since his election has been a leader characterized by his own contradictions. As soon as he sat on the throne of Peter, he became the darling of the Social Justice Warriors crowd. This is specially true in Western Europe's media. (and by default, in North America) The mostly secular, anti-Catholic at its core, very leftist, IVth Estate, as they are often described, could not write enough articles, publish enough documentaries to laud the character and the works of this Pontiff.

His surprising, and often shocking declarations in regard to gays, unmarried couples, the mostly muslim migration wave that overtook Europe, his alignment with some of the worst enemies of the Church, his critics of President Trump, or more recently his cautions about a supposed return of anti Semitism: all have been welcomed with kudos by the Press corp, who cannot find enough adjectives to sing his praises.

At the same time, we have had some push back coming from some more traditionalist Cardinals who have demanded answers, albeit without any tangible results; but also coming from a possibly more potent resistance: the demand by victims of sexual abuse by the clergy, for real answers. This has been compounded by the extremely frustrating revelations that some of the most powerful leaders of the Church have been knowingly and willfully covering up and ignoring the grave crimes perpetuated by some of Francis biggest supporters in the Church.


This is potentially explosive.

For us on Guam these events are very confusing, and very far from our daily concerns. Yet it could have a deep and lasting impact on how we continue to deal with the healing of our Church, following the catastrophic administration of Apuron for over 30 years, and the cover up of sexual abuse of countless victims on our island.

MEDIA REVIEWS OF THE USCCB SEXUAL COVERUP SCANDAL

(posted by Frenchie)






Since the beginning of the summer, and the shocking revelations of the shenanigans of former Cardinal and Archbishop emeritus of Washington DC Mc Carrick, we have been bombarded by an avalanche of information, all very disturbing, most of them contradictory, at best very confusing for the lambda citizens, and most faithful.

Adding to this, former Nuncio and high ranking Vatican official during the reign of Benedict the XVI, Archbishop Vigano revealed in an 11 pages statement a mother lode of accusations against high ranking members of the American Catholic Church and the Vatican. This release was well documented and precise and implicates Pope Francis directly in a coverup of Mc Carrick's misdeeds.
Read here

These revelations are capital, because they implicate cardinals, who elected Pope Francis, and could again elect his successor.
Which begs to ask, why we should trust cardinals who have abdicated their moral leadership, for the sake of political gains.

MAKING SENSE OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS, ON THE SEXUAL COVER UPS.

(posted by frenchie)

Ever since the revelations about the shenanigans of former Cardinal Mc Carrick at the beginning of this summer, which were closely followed by the release of the Pennsylvania's Attorney General grand jury findings on sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in that state; as well as the open letter of 11 pages by Archbishop Vigano, which openly accused several key prelates of the USCCB, and the Vatican, of coverup, revealing that Pope Francis had taken several controversial decisions in full knowledge of the issues; the media circus has gone full speed ahead with daily revelations to complicate what should be a clear cut issue.

We have written here at length about the jockeying by different currents inside the Catholic Church itself, as well as the obvious spinning by certain secular media outlets, according to their political leanings.

In the past two weeks we have been bombarded by so many opinion pieces, and partial information, that I found it necessary to kind of clean up the process a little and explain what is happening at this time.

CBS, CNN: EVIDENCE THAT THE VATICAN KNEW

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick
For a while, it seemed that Big Media in the U.S. were sticking to the canard that the accusations of cover up of Cardinal McCarrick's heinous sexual abuse of priests and seminarians was all part of a right-wing conspiracy.

That is, until the revelation of a letter written in 2006 by Archbishop Leonardo Sandri, the No. 3 in the Vatican's secretariat of state at the time, to Father Boniface Ramsey, a former professor at the Diocese of Newark's seminary.  The letter was published by the U.S. Bishops' Catholic News Service on September 7, 2018.

THE COMING STORM


There's a storm coming.  Not to Guam, but to New Jersey, the home of the nation's first Redemptoris Mater Seminary and to many of Cardinal McCarrick's shenanigans.  From NorthJersey.com:

New Jersey attorney general to investigate sex-abuse allegations among Catholic clergy

New Jersey will investigate allegations of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, following a report by a grand jury in Pennsylvania that found more than 1,000 victims there over 70 years.

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said he's forming his own task force, which could use subpoenas and other investigative methods to uncover evidence that it would present to a state grand jury. The task force is to look into allegations of abuse as well as attempts to cover up incidents, Grewal's office said in a news release.  Read more.


Meanwhile, Pope Francis tells us in his homilies that "truth is silent" and that his accusers are "wild dogs".

Maybe New Jersey Attorney General Grewal will find out, as will his peers in Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Illinois, New York, Nebraska, and Missouri.

A WORD OF CAUTION AND A WARNING

(Posted by Frenchie)

Last week, the local media, and some on this blog, made a lot of hay about a comment Pope Francis made during his chat with the journalists, in the plane that was taking him back to Rome, from his stay in Ireland.
If there is one thing, that we should all have learned over the last few years, it is not to think that you can conclude precisely what the Pope intent was, when he makes a statement.
More often than not, what Pope Francis means is only clear to him only. What is almost as important to understand, is the context in which he said what he said, but also what he did not say, or perhaps only inferred in that statement.

TIME'S UP


Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga - head of the Papal Cabinet of Cardinals (C9)
While major media outlets like CNN and the New York Times are vigorously defending Pope Francis against allegations that he covered up Cardinal McCarrrick's pederasty, the Boston Globe is sticking to its guns. Sunday's edition of that paper included this editorial: 

Time’s up on Pope Francis and Catholic Church leaders being able to handle clergy abuse crisis

"Time’s up for Pope Francis and the leaders of the Catholic Church.

Catholics everywhere — and anyone who cares about children — should demand that our criminal justice system start treating the Roman Catholic Church for what many victims believe it is: an international criminal conspiracy to cover up the rape of what in the United States alone might amount to 100,000 children."  Read more.
To faithful Catholics, that's a shocking statement, even if we admit that there are some bad actors involved in cover-ups who are deeply embedded into the Church's structures of governance.

CONNECTING THE DOTS, FROM ONE SCANDAL TO ANOTHER

(posted by Frenchie)

On page 5 of Archbishop Vigano's now infamous letter, fingering Bishops and Cardinals who were part of the cover-up cabal, which helped perverts and thugs like Mc Carrick rise to power, Vigano fingers a certain Cardinal O'Brien


Perhaps to some of you, faithful readers of this blog, the name might ring a bell? It should.....
Cardinal O'Brien has the dubious honor, to be the first one to try to shut down this blog and kill any criticism of Apuron, when he personally threatened Tim Rohr in 2013, only a few months after Tim started to expose Apuron vile treatment of Father Paul Gofigan, and three years before Apuron would be himself accused of  sexually abusing young men.

As the old adage said: "Birds of a feather, stick together"

I have been told that Tim did contact said Cardinal, after the Apuron's guilty verdict was made public by the Vatican. As of now Tim has not made O'Brien's answer public. This should become even more interesting.

LET'S ASSUME THE ALLEGATIONS ARE FALSE...



Pope Francis attends a meeting with faithful of the diocese of Rome
at Saint John Lateran Basilica in Rome, Italy, in a May 14, 2018 file photo.
REUTERS
Let's assume for a minute that Archbishop Viganó's most significant allegations are false.  In other words:
  1. Pope Benedict did NOT impose any sanctions on Cardinal McCarrick, and
  2. Archbishop Viganó NEVER told Pope Francis about Cardinal McCarrick's heinous misdeeds.
Well, then, if that's the case, why wouldn't Pope Benedict, for the sake of the unity of the Church if for no other reason, exonerate Pope Francis with a short, simple public statement?  And why wouldn't Pope Francis assert, just as simply, that Archbishop Viganó never told him about McCarrick's misdeeds?  Two holy men would be telling the truth for the sake of the Church.  It seems so simple.

But no, both Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have nothing to say about the matter, the faithful are left wondering why, and the Church is left lurching dangerously close to schism.

That's if Archbishop Viganó's allegations are false. But they ring true, and if they are, we can only assume that Pope Francis is silent to avoid being caught in a lie.

ILLINOIS AG LAUNCHES AN INVESTIGATION

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.
(Jose M. Osorio/Chicago Tribune)
Following on the heels of the scathing Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced she was contacting the six dioceses of the Catholic Church in Illinois requesting to review all records relating to sexual assault and abuse.

Madigan, by the way, is the sister-in-law of our own Archbishop Michael Byrnes.   Church Militant reports:
"Madigan is married to Pat Byrnes, brother to Detroit Auxiliary Bishop Michael Byrnes, sent to Guam to replace Abp. Anthony Apuron, who was removed in 2016 over allegations of homosexual assault of altar boys."

THE DIRE CONSEQUENCES OF THE MC CARRICK SCANDAL

HOW TO MAKE SENSE OF THE INFO WAR GOING ON.

(Posted by Frenchie)
The Vatican is under attack from multiple sides. Everyone has an agenda to push forward.
It is becoming very confusing for the average Catholic to figure out what is really going on.

The catalyst for this whole mess has been the ever developing scandal of former Cardinal Mc Carrick.

Most of us understand, or at least perceive that there is a lot more at stake that the future of an already very old former Cardinal.

Over the last few weeks, we have seen many actors of the Catholic Church in the US trying to either cover their backside, or take advantage of the issue.


At first the concert of Bishops who came forward, was all on the same tune.

Basically we were told, that everyone was surprised and chocked by these revelations.

Then we found out that, like here on Guam with Apuron, everyone knew, but everybody kept quiet.

POPE FRANCIS ON APURON: "THE EVIDENCE IS VERY CLEAR"

(photo credit: CNS/Paul Haring)
According to the National Catholic Reporter yesterday, Pope Francis refused to discuss the allegations made against him by Archbishop Vigano when talking to reporters on the flight back to Rome from Ireland.  During the same flight, however, the Pope could not help to discuss the case of Archbishop Anthony Apuron:
"I took it upon myself and I made a commission of canonists to help me..It is a complicated case on one hand, but also not difficult because the evidence is very clear.  But I cannot prejudge, I'll wait for the information, and then I will judge."

HEY GIUSEPPE!

Ex-Nuncio Accuses Pope Francis of Failing to Act on McCarrick’s Abuse

In a written testimony, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò claims Pope Francis withdrew sanctions against Archbishop Theodore McCarrick.

Edward Pentin

In an extraordinary 11-page written testament, a former apostolic nuncio to the United States has accused several senior prelates of complicity in covering up Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s allegations of sexual abuse, and has claimed that Pope Francis knew about sanctions imposed on then-Cardinal McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI but chose to repeal them.

TROUBLE IN TOKYO!

It seems that our good "friend", Cardinal Filoni, is forcing the establishment of a Redemptoris Mater Seminary of the Neocatechumenal Way in Tokyo, without consulting the Archbishop of Tokyo!

Yesterday, in La Croix International we read:

Tokyo archbishop puzzled by new seminary for Asia

Archbishop Tarcisius Isao Kikuchi 'confused' by Cardinal Fernando Filoni's letter informing him of decision to re-establish seminary for Neocatechumenal Way

Archbishop Kikuchi of Tokyo.
Tokyo Archbishop Tarcisius Isao Kikuchi admitted to some confusion after being informed that a new Catholic seminary for Asia will be established in the Japanese capital.

He issued a statement on Aug. 15 saying he was not aware exactly where the seminary would be located or when it will become operational. "I am very confused by the decision of the congregation," the statement read.

Archbishop Kikuchi said he received a letter from Cardinal Fernando Filoni, prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, unilaterally announcing that the seminary would be established somewhere in Tokyo Archdiocese.  Read more.


Archbishop Kikuchi expressed surprise that senior clergy in Japan including himself had not been brought in for discussions on the matter.
"To say the least, neither I, the local archbishop, nor Archbishop Okada, my predecessor, have been consulted," he said.
This, despite the fact that the Statute of the Neocatechumenal Way specifically says that the Neocatechumenal Way “is at the service of the bishop“ [Art. 1] and that it is “under the jurisdiction, direction of the diocesan bishop” [Art. 2] and that “it pertains to the diocesan bishop, as responsible for initiation, formation and Christian life in the local Church…to authorize the implementation of the Neocatechumenal Way” and to “to watch over the implementation of the Neocatechumenal Way“[Art. 24]. 

Moreover, Article 18 of the Statute is specifically about the Redemptoris Mater Seminaries:  "The Neocatechumenal Way is also an instrument that is offered at the service of the bishops for the Christian formation of candidates to the presbyterate...The diocesan missionary “Redemptoris Mater” Seminaries are erected by diocesan bishops..." 

The Neocatechumenal Way has caused great trouble in Japan before, which we've reported on here.

OOPS!! DID CARDINAL SEAN STEP INTO IT?

(Posted by Frenchie)


We have shown how Cardinal Sean O'Malley, one of the Kikos biggest promoter and apologist,
former papabile to the succession of Benedict, and one of the most influential American prelate of the moment, had used the Mc Carrick scandal, to jockey to the front of the media, as an advocate for the victims.

He has lectured his fellow bishops, demanding more transparency.
He has lectured the Pope on the need for action.

He also refused to participate in the Papal visit to Ireland, under the guise that he had to attend a developing scandal in his own Archdiocese of Boston that is taking place at the local seminary.

Yet, today he had to apologized for not answering a letter denouncing Mc Carrick issues while he was still the Archbishop of Newark New Jersey. A letter written by Fr Ramsey who had sent it to Cdl Sean because he was the head of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors.
