There is much on his new website as well as his old one... What bothers me about it all, mostly, is the (IMO) unchristian way he is commenting on the situation and the accusers.
To paraphrase his email to those that subscribe, he believes it is God's will for him to preach... so preach he must. Being quiet may be against the church'
s orders but he sincerely believes he is doing God's will.
This episode comes as a cold slap in the face. For many of us, Fr Corapi was the voice and face of the Church. And now? So many contradictions. Nhe maintains his love of the Curch, yet has no faith in her abiliy to mete out true justice.
I always felt strengthened and revitalized after listening to his radio sermons because he spoke with the voice of the Catholic Church. And now, how can I listen to a man who has thrown away the collar and the habit to preach -- what?
The Church isn't perfect, we all know this as it is composed of us broken and wounded souls. But it is still the body and bride of Christ. Father Corapi was one of the main teachers who instillef this in me.
I pray that he returns to his order (SOLT) and abandons this bizarre journey of his. If I considered him to be a bad priest, I would have concurred with his decision to leave the priesthood. But this is not the case. I feel that he has been instrumental in bringing lost souls back home. I only wish that he'd return home himself. I really love the man as do many of us. It is devastating to see this happen.
