For 20 years I did my best to guard and feed the sheep. Now, based on a totally unsubstantiated, undocumented allegation from a demonstrably troubled person I was thrown out like yesterdays garbage, he stated.
Hmm. He makes no denial but just attacks the accuser as being crazy. Sounds like Clinton.
I hope this is true. prayers for Fr Corapi..
I wish the best for him, and anybody who has been struggling.
Chews on things for awhile then they get sour and he spits them out. Later, he tries another chaw. Same-same.
In the time right before he disappeared from the public eye, it was clear that, both physically and mentally, he wasn't quite himself. Whether this was due the stress of the persecution he was under (real or imagined) no one can say. If he does come back in some public way, I hope it is with his mind and vigor intact, as he would again be a great asset to the Church. In any case, he should be in our prayers.
Praying for him at this time seems the best thing to do for me.
I agree; it’s up to Fr. Corapi to make the announcement, and hopefully, provide the faithful with a [sincere] apology, if this news is accurate. I’ve written the author regarding this piece, but he hasn’t written back. My guess is there are scores of others who have done so as well.
It is highly doubtful Father Corapi will ever be able to return to his former faculties as a priest-teacher of the laity at least in any media-driven forum.
He is deeply wounded by his past, his addictions, and recovery itself can be its own private hell. These life experiences of his can not be instantly healed, as if this were all simply a matter of dealing with an uncooperative, rebellious adolescent.
Certainly he is not capable of racing to a microphone to explain himself and allay everyone’s morbid curiosity about his degree of contrition and the intimate details of the Hell he has experienced, laying out his sufferings for us to peruse and examine, as if shopping cantaloupes.
It should be his spiritual, physical and mental health we should be concerned for, rather than hoping for a press conference to please ourselves. He is after all very ill and wounded.
sorry, but I could never watch him because he seemed to be a fake.
Yes, good priests do have their lives destroyed by false accusations, but you know, sometimes the accusations are real...
Thank you for the hopeful update. Fr. Corapi has been in and remains in my daily prayers.
