Sad News

 I picked this up at Defend Us in Battle.  Please pray for Father Corapi.  The price that is being paid for the Church's previous transgressions when it came to sexual abuse committed by priests is that now everyone is presumed guilty until proven innocent.  No wonder this Lent had been so difficult for so many.  I do not know the details of the charges against Father Corapi, except that they are being leveled by a former employee.  I have to say that I find nothing credible in accusations made by an adult who is willfully employed by someone and then after they no longer work for them, for whatever reason, decides to commit either the sin of detraction, or,  false witness against an innocent person.  That individual is not in an enviable state.

 When the shepherd is struck, the sheep disperse.  At least that is the hope of the Great Deceiver.


  1. I'm afraid I'm not surprised that someone would level false accusations like this. Fr. Corapi is a very public figure and it happens to public figures all the time. Most of the time they are just ignored but the church must now take all accusations against priests seriously. I pray that this gets resolved quickly.


Comments which reflect true Christian charity are always welcome. Comments which attack the Pope, the Church, priests or other bloggers will go in the dustbin, especially if they are anonymous. Thank you and God Bless you!
