Fr. Corapi vindicated?



I don’t want to get in a discussion about this, but be careful posting about him. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, I’m just saying be careful.


How would this vindicate him?



fhansen, maybe someone told him to go get married?


Wow? How would that vindicate him? Even if they told him that what would be the reason? Some conspiracy nonsense?


I think he was indirectly saying ‘he was told to get married’?

vindicated might not be a great word…maybe validated?

Who is the little nun with a big mouth? Someone specific?


How, exactly, do the sins of others ‘vindicate’ John Corapi?


What happened?


I thought it was St Catherine of Siena, based on how she yelled at Pope Gregory XI to get out of Avignon and move back to Rome.

I never trusted Fr Corapi, even before the investigation. He was too reminiscent of a revival preacher in a tent show. He just left a bad feeling with me. I don’t know if all the allegations are true, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they are.

this is a really weird you tube. i don’t know if it is 10 years old or 10 days old

corapi looks fairly young in the video

the guy messed up big time

as a former HUGE fan, i think father corapi belongs to be where he is; in obscurity (and off the internet & ewtn)


check out a couple of the interviews father corapi did with father pacwa on ewtn during corapi’s final days of legitimacy

there were definitely some serious cracks in the hull…


Thanks Casilda
I had a hunch.

Her thoughts reflect mine.

Brian Custer,
We never know how we will be when a heavy cross bears down. From all accounts, it seems to me that Fr. Corapi was burdened much of his life…perhaps for a moment like the one captured in that video.



Father Corapi is not vindicated. His order (SOLT) has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing that we know of.

I think people need to let Father Corapi go. Pray for him, but stop following the cult of personality that he once had. There are plenty of other priests and Catholic speakers out there worth listening to.


I heartily second this wise advice.


Wat were those cracks? I have not seen the video yet…


So much here say and so much he said she said with Father Corapi I could never get it all straight. I do pray for him he is a priest forever even if a fallen one. May he remember the reason and the means by which he became a Priest in the first place.


Check this out, people.


EXCELLENT article. Very true.
