SNAP Monitoring Anti-Catholic Sites



One of the commenters in the last post said that Msgr.James Benavente was removed from his duties.  I googled the information regarding Msg. James Benavente, and  I came up with SNAP monitoring all the hate sites on their list.  Guess what!!!  Junglewatch is on that list.  See the weblink below:  

SNAP monitors Junglewatch

SNAP knows that Msgr. James Benavente was removed from his duties, and SNAP did not get this information from KUAM, but from Junglewatch, which they listed as their source. According to the jungle, which was copied and pasted by SNAP, Msgr. Benavente was removed due to financial mismanagement. KUAM, on the other hand, reported the following and gave no reason as to the reason for the removal: 

KUAM News has received a copy of a letter that was sent to several people in the Archdiocese of Agana today announcing Archbishop Anthony Apuron's removal of Monsignor James Benavente as Rector of the Dulce Nombre Maria Cathedral-Basilica.  According to the letter his removal went into effect Friday, July 25th.

According to the letter Monsignor James was also removed as the Director of Catholic Cemeteries for the Archdiocese of Agana. The letter also announced the Archbishop's directive dissolving the Archdiocesan Development Group. The Group served as the umbrella organization for the Cathedral's gift shop, museum and Media Ministries.

Monsignor Benavente served as Rector for 20 years. His removal is the latest controversy for the Catholic church in Guam.  Earlier this week, the Archbishop removed Father John Wadeson from active ministry in the Archdiocese of Agana. His removal followed the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests or SNAP exposing his past and the fact that Father Wadeson was twice accused of child molestation in California. Father Wadeson was banned from the Los Angeles Archdiocese. The day after he was removed, Father Wadeson left Guam.



News From KUAM

  1. More updates from KUAM which states the following:

    "However a source close to the Monsignor tells KUAM that he was removed on allegations of financial mismanagement which he denies. Calls to Archdiocese of Agana spokesperson Father Adrian Cristobal have also gone unanswered. Although we have not received a response from the Archdiocese the Jungle Watch blog which writes about the local catholic community also reports Msgr. James was removed on allegations of financial mismanagement."

    http://www.kuam.com/global/story.asp?s=26121433

    I wonder who Tim's source was who said that it was financial mismanagemen? KUAM says they got their source from someone close to Monsignor.

    1. Diana of course TIM ROHR is the whistle blower and a garden hose blower also. Even without asking the financial mismanagement. Take a look out the surroundings?
      EXHIBIT
      A. St.Thomas Aquinas H.S. ====> Over kill... FD, ND & AOLG. Do you think the Alumni would let their children attend that school? No. To parallel St.John Episcopalian School? What for? The erection of that school was Tim's idea also. Aaron Quitigua took a free ride with that school also because he is Msgnr Benavente's boy. Did the Archbishop say anything? No.
      B.Cemetery ====> Nice renovation however it also committed encroachment of neighboring property owner, plus additional overkill 20 foot towering statues of apostles. Does it have to be that big? A mural would be nice.
      C. Cathedral renovation =====> Additional Chapel, 20K Roll up door. Bathrooms are lot nicer now but is a overkill with additional chapel. Do the numbers, but yet the Archbishop nice enough to support him.

      I'm not surprise he (Benavente) was not obedient and did not accept his new appointed assignment. He does not accept and obey. This is not an injustice but a decision has to be made. Beside it's been 20 years he needs a new mission, there is nothing wrong with that.

    2. Dear El Camino,

      St. Thomas Aquinas High School was Benavente's and Tim's idea? Why build a new school when the others were not even overcrowded? Did Tim Rohr's kids go to that school and did they go there for free? If so, they are part of the financial mismanagement.

      Why are you sorry. I never accused them of even going to St. Thomas Aquinas High School in the first place. I asked if Tim Rohr's kids go there and if they attend for free. And IF they did, they would have contributed to the financial management. That was a question, not an accusation.

      The Archbishop has the right to sign everything, but whomever he delegates as financial manager also has some responsibilities.

    8. Diana - of course, I remember Tim had that TV show in KUAM. They were boasting about it. I said great an additional Catholic School but an overkill since the other Catholic HS are not even crowded. One of the older daughter who attended the school but not all children. It's true the rest of the children were home school.What gave this away, their marketing print out from St.Thomas Aquinas.Her picture is on the cover.

      Delete
    9. Dear El Camino,

      Thank you for that information. I agree that if the other schools were not overcrowded, it is unnecessary to build another one, especially if it's main purpose is to compete with St. John's. The fact that we already have 3 high schools already operational and doing well says much.

    10. El Camino,

      Msgr. was not disobedient. Rome was coming down hard on the chancery for financial mishaps (just ask Fr. Adrian) so Deacon Dominic Kim and the Archbishop needed a scapegoat and Msgr. James was the one.

      That is a good question, and I do not know the answer. The Archdiocese of Agana is remaining silent. The jungle is claiming that he was removed for financial mismanagement, but KUAM's source denies it. So, why he was removed from duties is still a speculation.

The faithful of Guam will not let this continue. Tim Rohr is the cause of pain and suffering in our Catholic Church, but he also makes his own to suffer, his friends, family members and employees.

      Chuck White now demands that the Neocatechumenal Way be inserted into the scandal and in the news reports. Wow, what a shameless person this Chucky is...

  5. Oh what lies you spread on this blog. Msgr. James has done nothing but build up our Church. If the Archbishop did not agree with the renovations of Pigo Cemetery and the Cathedral, then why did he elevate Msgr. James to the status of Monsignor? Renovations took place prior to his elevation to Monsignor in 2006. If Archbishop removed him for financial mismanagement, that would be very hypocritical since Archbishop won't even disclose diocesan finances the way Rome and many many dioceses have done. As for St. Thomas Aquinas High School, I know for a fact that Aaron Quitugua did not get a free ride as I was involved in the opening of the school myself and often took the tuition payments. As a matter of fact, no student got a free ride. STA offered scholarships and financial aid, not freebees. The school was meant to be yet another source of Catholic education. You just attack and judge personal characters without even knowing these people. How very Christian of you. Is this really what the Neocatechumenal way teaches? Of course it is.

      In the first place, we do not even know if "financial management" is the reason for his removal. According to the KUAM news, the person whom they spoke to is a close to Monsignor James Benavente and he denied that financial management is the reason.

      Also, if the other schools are overcrowded, then I can see building St. Thomas Aquinas High School. But if it was built to compete against St. John, that would be a ridiculous reason.

  6. Junglewatch demands revolution now. Yes, you are right, revolution! It is no surprise how these left-wing liberals, disguised as "traditionalists", think and act. Their alliance with extreme anti-religious organizations as SNAP and shameless collaboration with liberal anti-Catholic media give them away.

    Revolutionists always want to raise the stakes and incite emotions higher and higher until a major blow happens which they call revolution. They worship their revolutionary ideologies, which is all deception. Here is what their "revolution" truly means: pain, suffering, turmoil, chaos and sheer destruction.

    TimJuly 27, 2014 at 4:25 PM

    No. This is a result of Msgr. James simply being a superior person in every way compared to His Highness Apuron. It's the same with Fr. Paul. Both are excellent priests, make friends easily, and are much admired and loved. Apuron has to go off to Europe and South America and offer foreigners goodies in order to find someone to love him...or at least pretend to. Msgr. James has been one of the quietest, most obedient, and most servant-like of priests, especially when it comes to serving the Archbishop. However, he's not a neo-kiss ass and that's what Apuron wants. So death to all who won't kiss it.

    But it's also because Apuron thinks that Msgr. James is my informant. He’s not. I’m not stupid like the ding-dongs in the chancery, and neither is Msgr. James. Because of my involvement with the gift shop at the cathedral it would be too easy to link Msgr. to me, so I specifically distanced myself from him. I even relinquished my position as the manager of the store many months ago because I knew that Apuron would come after me through Msgr. James.

    Because Apuron is not man enough to engage legitimate criticism he simply bullies and terrorizes in the name of his episcopal hat. However, this is exactly what St. John Crysostom was referring to when he said “The floor of hell is paved with the skulls of bishop.” It is the fate of bishops who bully and terrorize in the name of the church.

The Arch and his leaders were given respect from the start, but they did everything possible to lose that respect. They have become traitors to their own people, attempting to give away land and control of church assets. To make it worse, they have used their power to rid our church of anyone in a position to protect it. Many of these comments in favor of the Arch are probably from foreigners who have no appreciation for our culture and history, especially if it gets in the way of their agenda. They claim that we are disobedient if we even question our Archbishop who has obviously become a traitor to our island. WE ARE NOT STUPID! Some of us are just ignorant, but that can be fixed.

    I have family memebers who are part of the NCW and I love them as much as I have ever loved them. They have come a long way in their faith because of what they learned from the NCW, but that does not make it ok for the NCW leaders and the Arch to do what they have done. The NCW is not the only way to learn to serve God through the Catholic faith. I have attended several events of the NCW that I was invited to, out of respect for family memebers, but I already could see the strangel hold that they have on my family members. It's not for me and many others.

    The truth is the truth, you can attempt to conceal, distort or destroy it will always be there and it will never change. Embrace the truth with unbiased judgement, be honest with yourself.

    6. You are right! However with any Government agency, the director is given an opportunity to answer the charges against him before getting booted (due process). In this case it seems Msgr. James was removed without given any due process. He was released and that was it. After 20 years working at the Cathedral, you would expect the Archbishop to give him the respect of answering the charges against him. In fact, media reports suggest that the charges were never reported or given to Msgr. He is left in the dark wondering why he was removed.

      Regardless of his fault, I respect him because of his office. His office is sanctified by God despite that he is not a perfect man. Because of his office as Archbishop, I will not bash him. It would be improper to show any kind of disrespect toward an office sanctified by God.

      Jesus told His disciples to listen to the Pharisees despite that they are hypocrites. Why? Because the seat of Moses was sanctified by God.

      Matthew 23:2-3 “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.

    There's been a huge amount of stuff posted to this blog in the last 24 hours expressing your outrage over our lawless Archbishop, and a lot of it has been very well written.

    You need to take those same statements and go to the stories that are in the media TODAY and post those same comments there. You need to light this island on fire and the press has given you a chance to do that TODAY, NOW!

    The post below has all the current stories and the links to them. Get on those websites and start saying the stuff you are saying here. For those of you who are even braver, you need to call into the radio shows. It's HOT news! Make it hotter.

    You can also contact the writers of those media stories and give them details about the stuff that you know that I know that you know but you don't want others to know that it's you who spilled the beans. The media writers are sworn to protect their sources if you ask them.

    Now is the time because they are coming for YOU next!

      The Neocatechumenal Way is Catholic, not Lutherian. The only ones who has been saying that we are Lutherian are those who oppose the Way.

      Delete
    4. And the only ones saying that is about 99 percent of the Catholics on island.

    5. AnonymousJuly 28, 2014 at 3:46 PM How are we Lutheran, we still have the sacraments, we obey the Pope vice a Lutheran who opposes the POPE. The Way venerate the Blessed Mary.Read the early Catholic Christian. Do your homework, the catacomb did it the Early Catholics. This is illiterate findings.

      The island of Guam only has 85% Catholics. The number has been decreasing over many years, and you have done nothing about it. It is the Way who have been trying to increase Catholicism through its missionary work.

    7. I said 99% percent of the Catholics, not that 99% of Guam is Catholic. And 85% is huge in any country, so don't down play it so as to give the NCW importance here on island. The NCW numbers is actually the one that is decreasing, stagnant at best.

      Well, I saw your prayer support for Monsignor James on the news tonight. The number of people there is not even one fourths of the Catholics on Guam.

  17. He wrote you religion,faith and culture. I'm still local, all it matter for me Christ was brought to my life. He is going crazy. Tomorrow a vigil prayer at the cathedral steps at the front.

  18. Monsignor Benavente ‘abruptly removed’ as church rector coming from Marianas Variety which the owner is non Christian by Jasmine Stole. Choose your words wisely.

    He was instructed when he cannot handle the finances, who takes the hit? The Archbishop.

  19. Oh Diana, I feel so sad for you. You are willing to follow Apuron and Kiko through the mud. When Rome comes back and makes the changes and Kiko decides to leave the church since he feels it is going the in wrong path what will do you? Have you ever asked yourself that question? As a long time priest (not a part of the archdiocese) I can speak from experience- it happens- people don't get their way, organization lose sight and focus then they break away. It will happen- it is the NCW destiny. Kiko is only a councillor and so are 25 other people- title is honorary- no real role- look it up. It doesn't make the NCW any more special. You know the saying "keep your friends close and your enemies closer". I can only offer you this advice- the ongoing trials and uprising is a good thing that will cleanse the church and renew it. Lampas Lakas Lakas! To the people of Guam- LABAN!

      It was not long ago when you had the Papal Nuncio here, and what did he do for you?? If the Nuncio did nothing for you, what makes you think the Pope will. The Pope supports the Way. As a matter of fact, it was Pope Francis who confirmed Kiko Arguello as Consultor for the Pontifical Council for the Laity for five more years. See the weblink below:

      http://www.zenit.org/en/articles/neocatechumenal-way-initiator-named-consultor-for-pontifical-council-for-the-laity

      So, as you can see, Kiko has a position in Rome. And you think Rome will back you up and take out Kiko Arguello?

  20. The Papal Nuncio was a breath of fresh air. He is a man who knows how to lead, communicate, to build bridges, to hear the faithful, to work for the good. He is the total opposite of Apuron. He gathered our letters, our evidence, ask us for our notes and concerns. Many of us are still emailing him and he responds.

    Kiko's position is nothing in Rome. The rest of the Roman Curia laugh at him and his bizarre ways. I've spent many years studying in Rome and he is a "nobody" who wishes to elevate himself and his ego and cause. The Pontifical Council for the Laity is one of hundreds of council, commissions- "The Members of the Council are 32 Bishops, priests and, especially, lay people, men and women, from all parts of the world, who meet in an annual Plenary Assembly to deal with matters which seem at the time of greater urgency for the life and mission of the laity. With the Council also cooperate 30 Consultors, who are convoked for working sessions or consulted individually on specific matters" that He did so by getting some Cardinals to vouch for him and asked for his appointment as a consultor- so basically- he advises the advisers. (wow -what a great job) I am sure he is doing a fine job -doing nothing since they don't really need the consultors advice.

    1. Dear Anonymous at 2:56 pm,

      The point I was making is that because he was given a position in the Catholic Church means that the NCW is Catholic and not Protestant. The fact that you demean and belittle any position in the Vatican says more about you.

    2. I propose to meet Chuck White, Tim Rohr and the rest to tell us. Instead of hiding from his blog or the media.
