Courage! I have it on high authority. Persecution makes us stronger. Let us look at the facts. It is almost three years and what has the jungle, CCOG, and the Laity Forward Movement accomplished so far? NOTHING! That is the truth. Archbishop Krebs visited the island twice and still Father Paul and Monsignor James is in the same position where the Archbishop put them. The Vatican delegation visited Guam. Has anything changed for Father Paul and Monsignor James? NOOOOOOO! Absolutely nothing! They remain in the same position where the Archbishop put them. They have written letters to the Vatican. Did they get any positive response from them? NOOOOO! In fact, they heard nothing from the Vatican, and Father Paul and Monsignor James remains where the Archbishop placed them.
And most important of all, Archbishop Apuron continues to be our Archbishop. He was appointed by the Pope and as long as Pope Francis have not removed him, he is legitimately and legally the Archbishop of Guam by canon law. Anyone who says otherwise is only going against the Catholic Church. It is almost three years, and the jungle has accomplish nothing. So courage brothers! They can brag about their page views all they want.......but these are the facts: 1) Archbishop Apuron remains the legal Archbishop of Guam in the eyes of Rome, 2) Father Paul and Monsignor James remains where the Archbishop placed them, and 3) the RM seminary continues to remain operational.
After almost three years, they have accomplished nothing, which is why they are so frustrated to the point that they have resorted to breaking the law. So, they can scream, shout, and protest all they want. It never got them anywhere anyway. Courage. As you know, the devil always seek to destroy the Church since her birth. And the only way to defeat the devil is through humility.
