Renew America) A bit of good news to share: A reliable source has informed me that
Father John Corapi, a popular priest among orthodox Catholics who
departed public life after a tumultuous period a few years ago, remains
in the priesthood and is re-establishing his spiritual life.
There's no indication he'll be returning to public life anytime
soon, if ever. However, it's nice to know that Father Corapi can at
least be a quiet prayer warrior during this extremely difficult time in
the Church and world.
I won't go into the particulars about what transpired in the past – it's
water under the bridge – and I'm sure there's information on the
Internet (some of it more reliable than other information, obviously)
for those who may not be familiar with the situation. Plus, those who
really didn't pay attention to him in the first place likely don't care
one way or the other about his current status.
The bottom line is that we all are wounded and spiritually/morally fall often (I know I
do!). We just have to try our best to keep moving forward in faith in
this "valley of tears." A very difficult task, I must say. That doesn't
mean condoning moral corruption or remaining silent about it, but we all
need God's mercy.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help, pray for us.
