PRIEST ON THE RUN? LYRICISTS, HOW ABOUT "BAND ON THE RUN?"

Posted by Bob

Priest on the run - KUAM.com-KUAM News: On Air. Online. On Demand.

Father Adrian Cristobal had until the end of day last Friday to report to the Archdiocese of Agana. The no-show priest now faces sanctions by the Church. But, could also potentially face criminal charges.
Effective Saturday, June 16th, Father Adrian Cristobal is forbidden from acting as a priest in public. No wearing of the clerical garb, no celebrating mass, and no hearing confession. These sanctions were imposed by Archbishop Michael Byrnes who ordered Father Adrian return to Guam in light of three clergy sexual abuse lawsuits filed against him.
The former Chancellor had until the end of Friday to report to the Archdiocese of Agana. His last confirmed location was the Diocese of Phoenix, where he was reportedly studying canon law. The Concerned Catholics of Guam speculate the priest could be in hiding in the east coast.
CCOG President Dave Sablan told KUAM News, "I think Adrian is in New York somewhere or Newark, New Jersey, which is basically the headquarters for the Neocatechumenal Way." Sablan added, "We expected it. He is now a fugitive on the run."
Since April, three former Barrigada altar boys have filed civil suits against Father Adrian. Only identified by their initials to protect their privacy, L.J.C., J.C.C., and J.E. all report being sexually molested by the priest in the 1990s. J.C.C., however, reports the abuse spanned over a 15-year period - occurring almost daily the first few years - and only ending in 2013.
It's this allegation that could land Father Adrian in jail thanks to changes in Guam law.
"I think one of those accusations said it was in the 2013 period or up to the 2013 period. So anytime between 2011 and 2013. I think Father Adrian would be subject to criminal arrest; if he comes back, and I don't know if that's one of the reasons he doesn't want to come back. But, at this point, it's only a civil matter and not quite a criminal issue yet," he stated.
Though it is said Father Adrian has hired an attorney, none have entered their appearance on his behalf in the District Court of Guam.
The Church-imposed sanctions will remain in effect until Father Adrian returns to Guam.

Play the Paul McCartney Quiz
"Band On The Run"

Stuck inside these four walls
Sent inside forever
Never seeing no one nice again,
Like you, mama
You, mama...
You...

If I ever get out of here
Thought of giving it all away
To a registered charity.
All I need is a pint a day
If I ever get out of here
(if we ever get out of here)

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash
As we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there,
"I hope you're having fun."

Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man,
And sailor Sam
Were searching everyone
For the band on the run, band on the run.
For the band on the run, band on the run.

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh
Seeing no one else had come
And a bell was ringing in the village square
For the rabbits on the run.

Band on the run, band on the run
And the jailer man,
And sailor Sam
Were searching everyone
For the band on the run, band on the run.

Yeah, the band on the run
The band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run

Well, the night was falling
As the desert world began to settle down
In the town they're searching for us everywhere
But we never will be found

Band on the run, band on the run
And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search for ever more.
For the band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run
Band on the run

  1. Very good Bob, I did not know you had that lyricist side. On the serious side, this confirms what Frenchie was saying last week. The criminal side is new to me. Interesting

    1. Yes anon at 4.44, it is fun to find these trolls, because their interventions are as many justifications that there is stil an evil to fight. Shining the light on that evil is the duty of every Catholic.
      "you people are never satisfied" what a revealing statement!
      It shows you are willing to compromise truth for your own comfort. That is how you are comfortable. That is your choice... obviously, you have not your own bible in a while. Do you even own one?
      Hiding issues under the carpet, is exactly what people have done here during 30 years of Apuron's reign. It is exactly what led us to the situation we are in now.
      So go back to your little comfort, choose to ignore things to allow you to be "comfortable".
      If you never see anything positive on this blog, perhaps it says more about you, than this blog.
      Since I do not wish to be negative :Have a blessed day.
