My assumption was correct....Archbishop Byrnes was not walking the picket line. In the interview, he said that he came out to say hello and greet the people with the signs and then he went inside. That was his intention. Bob Klitzkie, Andrew Camacho, and Gerald Taitano were incorrect in their assumption. Andrew and Gerald may have been there, but they misinterpreted Archbishop Byrnes' action. To walk with them is the same thing as to protest, and that was not the intention of Archbishop Byrnes. So, the jungle was wrong about Archbishop Byrnes walking the picket line. He was not there to walk with them nor to protest with them, but to greet them and get to know them. The jungle was also wrong about the canonical trial. They said the trial did not exist. Archbishop Byrnes confirmed that the trial exits, and he is 100% certain of it.
From the interview, I also see that he is still learning things and processing them. Obviously, he has learned a few things about the RM Seminary. He stated that RMS is unique. The seminarians in RMS are from the Neocatechumenal Way. The fact that these seminarians came from the NCW would only provoke positive impressions on Archbishop Byrnes with the NCW in that we inspire vocations.
He also pointed out that some of the priests felt neglected because Archbishop Apuron was in the Way and tend to favor the RMS priests more. In all fairness to Archbishop Apuron, I see it differently. Before the Way was on Guam, Archbishop Apuron had always been present in all the parish fiestas and confirmations. He visited the parishes and schools. At that time, none of the priests had any conflict with him nor did they felt neglected. After the Neocatechumenal Way came to Guam, Archbishop Apuron did not change his routine habit. He continued to visit the parishes and schools. He continued to attend the parish fiestas and confirmations. So, his routine did not change at all. It was the same as usual. What changed was the attitude of some of the priests.
They saw a "change" in Archbishop Apuron. They saw that he was happy and full of joy after being a member of the NCW, and they wanted to take that joy away from him. They perceived that he was spending too much time with the RMS priests; therefore, they did not want him to be a member of the NCW. So, in all fairness to Archbishop Apuron......he treated the priests the same way as he always did regardless of whether the NCW was there or not. His routine of attending parish fiestas and confirmation never changed.
The priests who suddenly felt neglected blamed Archbishop Apuron for their feelings of neglect. Sometimes, one needs to look deeper into one's heart to discover that the real cause is not the other person but oneself. What they really wanted was what the RMS priests have. Envy and jealousy are sins, and all sins cause division.
