Greetings from Christ the King Mission Seminary! It is now past eleven in the evening of when I decided to sit down in my computer and let my hand, heart and mind work together to tell something very inspiring for a young missionary of the Divine Word.
These past few days, we have been so busy preparing for a very big event in the seminary. No, this is not only our seminary affair. This is an affair of the Church. Our very own Provincial of the Central Province, Fr. Leopoldo Paul Jaucian, SVD was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI as the new bishop of the Diocese of Bangued, Abra. He replaces Bishop Artemio Rillera, who is now bishop of San Fernando, La Union. He will become the seventh bishop from the Society of the Divine Word in the Philippines.

All in the community – old and young confreres were very excited as the day of his Episcopal ordination gets nearer and nearer. We asked our seminarians to stay (it is vacation time) to witness this once-in-a-lifetime experience of Bishop Pol. As one confrere said, “We already wanted our seminarians to attend priestly ordinations so that they will be encouraged to become SVD priests. Now, we also asked them to witness Episcopal ordinations so that they will not only be encouraged to become priests but also to become bishops!”
Just this Sunday morning, after my stint at ABS-CBN Healing Eucharist, the seminarians and I, together with the Servants of the Divine Word, Friends of St. Jude, SVD priests and our co-missionaries worked hand in hand in the preparation – liturgy, decors, surroundings, vestments, food, etc. Our dear seminarians enthusiastically prepared the room for the clergy from Bangued, went from one building to another, brought chairs and tables from here to there and attended to the last minute changes. To put it simply, we were all exhausted after the day.
Surprisingly, the presence of Fr. Pol this evening gave all of us a renewed strength. Everybody became energetic. He came over to see the preparations and also spent some chitchat with us. I could see the joy radiating from the faces of everyone inside the chapel. Even with his new clerical status, Fr. Pol remained very down to earth. “Ang bait-bait niya Frats,” one seminarian told me. I agree. I also approached him and he indeed remained to be the person that I know. Siya pa rin ang Fr. Pol na kilala ko – smiling, joyful and very accommodating, aside from being very humble. I asked him if I could take pictures of him with his parents and elder brother and he gamely posed for one shot.
Tomorrow will be a big day. Few hours from now, Fr. Pol will become one of the youngest bishops in the Philippines.
More to come…

My name is Constance, the Ex-Wife of Michael Jay Bulger. I’m writing to you because I’m am a victim also. Although my divorce to Michael wasn’t final until last November 9, 2007, I have known for a long time about some of his girlfriends. Mail from them would come to the house and I would read them, trying to figure out what he was up too. Once I found out what he was doing, I moved out and we were separated. Then he lied his way back into my life for another year and a half, after stealing money and jewels in Panama leaving a lady and tons of bill s behind until I said “NO MORE!” I kicked him out and we divorced. So, I will try to explain the “real” truth about Michael.

As far as the Lincoln Car he talks about? I acquired a loan in my name for that car for him, but he had to make the payments. He kept the payments up until he left the US and then he told Chris that he could have the car. Chris had no idea that I owned that car and still do! Mike will never see that car again. He has no legal rights to it and I have made legal arrangements to keep his hands off the car.

He is a low down scoundrel who preys on women. He likes to control everything in his life including women. He is mean, disgusting, arrogant, lying bastard and is not going to change. He is a mentally, sick user and has practiced his act and lies for many years.

Carmen left him for all the reasons above and many more. Michael was doing his internet dating thing even while he was married to Carmen. He controlled her life for 22 years while they were married. She waited for her last son, Sean, to turn 18yrs old and then she left him. He tried to sue her in court, but could never get a lot of money from her. He tried to make it out like it was all her fault. Carmen did not run off with a black man. She met him 2 years after their divorce. Since Michael is so prejudges against blacks, he still tried to make her life a living hell by writing letters to her boss, the head of a bank and tried to get her fired.

Now about me and his family. His sons are nothing like he says. We have come together to bond as a family to make sure Michael’s lies and scams are stopped. We have notified the U.S. Immigration, FBI, Texas Rangers, my local Police Department (my youngest son is a policeman), Homeland Security, Border Patrol, Dept. of Defense, and anyone else that can be of legal assistance to us. He is no longer welcome in the United States or his hometown. If he tries to come home, each one of these authorities will be notified and he will be taken into custody for fraud and deceit. As far as I know, he has not given up his U.S. Citizenship. So when his luck runs out in the Phillipines and he wants to run back here, he will be met with a lot of problems. He has no family support here and never will again.

Now about me. When I married Michael in 2004, I had no idea he was the way he is. I tried to hold the marriage together, but he was just looking for another woman to take care of him. Michael was about to get fired from DFAS when he put in his retirement papers and he left the Federal Government as quickly as he could before they found out what he was doing. All the complaints that I’m a bitch, he hated me, etc. He never had to stay with me if he didn’t want to. He was always free to go whenever he wanted to, but, you see, he was always broke. Because of his quick retirement, he doesn’t get that much of a pension. I have always taken care of myself, personally, and financially. I’ve always made and had my own money and he didn’t like that, so he started telling lies to get my money, which never happened. All the blogs on the panama and phillipine sites identify me as a withered, dried up old lady, but just for the record, Mark, I am a Fitness Tech and a well known women’s fitness center and have always taken care of myself.

Even though Michael didn’t love me, he was so jealous of other men looking at me – and I was healthy and he was not. Yes, I’m sticking up for myself, because what has been said on the blogs is not true. In fact, it is the farthest from the truth. Those are the lies that he has told everyone, including you and your wife.

I hope this clears up a few things. I’m sorry you ever met Michael Jay Bulger and his sons are devastated that this is the man that calls himself their father. They have disowned him and he continues to try to discredit their familie and their lives as well as mine.

I wish you the best, Perez in your crusade to deport this man from this country soon. May God be with you.

connie he spends it all on VIAGRA NOW>>>

Have a Blessed Day

Connie
