P.S. As mentioned several times already, we need and want Archbishop Byrnes to succeed. However, despite the "listening to both sides" posture, I am unaware that Byrnes has met with anyone from the CCOG except for a casual run-in at the chancery with CCOG President, David Sablan, even though the CCOG gave the archdiocese TWENTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS to help with the legal fees associated with the return of the Yona property.The money was given to the Archdiocese during the time Archbishop Hon was still here managing the Archdiocese while Archbishop Byrnes was still in Detroit. The money was given to help with the legal fees associated with the "so-called" return of the Yona property. I say "so-called" because the property was already under the Archdiocese of Agana. Therefore, the money was not used for the return of something that the Archdiocese already has. Most likely, it went to the paperwork and processing fee in getting the deed restriction rescinded and drawing up a new Articles of Incorporation.
Nevertheless, nothing has changed even with the deed restriction rescinded. This is probably the reason why the jungle is still angry and frustrated. They got the deed restriction removed, but the RMS continues to operate as they have always done. In fact, the removal of the deed restriction did not even affect their Christmas concert, which they planned for a long time. They held their Christmas concert and even had a silent auction.
In his press release, Archbishop Byrnes stated that he would like the Laterian University to continue to be affiliated with the seminary. This is already an indication that he intends to utilize the building in Yona to remain a major seminary, and he made no mention of closing it down. Tim Rohr and David Sablan can propose their own ideas of what they want done with the seminary, but Archbishop Byrnes makes the ultimate decision because he is the Coadjutor Archbishop of Agana.
