What To Make Of Father Corapi's Statement

Whatever it means, and quite frankly I don't know what to make of this,  I will keep Father in my prayers.  I will continue to make reference to the spiritual wisdom I learned from him.  His message was a good one, regardless of whether he himself is flawed. Only God is in a position to judge that and I have no right or desire to speculate, so I won't.


  1. I had not seen this, Joyce...It's definitely sad.. His teachings were so helpful to me when I came home ....Prayer and no speculation..That's a good word.

  2. It's rather baffling. It also has some of us seminarians shaken up, since it reminds us of the dangers of being accused. It's a sad world for the accused priest. Your bishop, your friends, and your parishioners all turn on you. Even if you are proven innocent, there is no recovering.

  3. Well Daniel sadly, I think this is the unfortunate price that is going to be paid for that dark period when a blind eye was turned to the abuse of children and young adults. It's not fair but it is what it is. I don't see this environment bringing more vocations but I hope I'm wrong. I hope that the call to serve Christ is stronger than any fear of "what if". Know that you and your fellow seminarians and all priests are always in my prayers. God have mercy on anyone who false accuses another person, and particularly if that person is a priest.


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!
