$4.5 million dollars is a lot of money, which the Archdiocese does not have on hand. To obtain that amount, it would be forced to sell some of its properties. As I said before, the parishes will most likely be the first ones to be closed down as it was done in the United States. If it comes down to that, the parishioners will suffer, but they will not be able to rebuild a new parish. Why?
Let us take for example, the Toto parish. Since Father Mike Crisostomo also agreed with the junglefolks that the people can rebuild, let us use his parish as an example. Toto parish is closed down and sold off. Now, WHERE in Toto do you see another available land for sale that the parishioners of Toto can purchase and start rebuilding their parish? The availability of such a property in the small village of Toto is nil. The only ones who would benefit from the sale of the parish would most likely be real estate agents like Tim Rohr and the lawyers in the lawsuit.
