Today the Coming Home pro-life family lifts up in love and prayer Father John Corapi and all affected by this chapter in his life. It is a very small chapter in a very large book that is filled with heroic love and self-sacrifice for the People of God, especially those in the womb. We pray for full restoration of all involved, and that this chapter be lost between all of the good that has come before, and all that is to follow. We pray for the restoration of Father’s good name.
Some Notes: First, for our non-Catholic brothers and sisters, novenas are nine days of intercessory prayer. We welcome you to join us in the novena prayers, or to pray along with us each night at 9 PM EST in any manner of prayer that you prefer. I have also linked to the chaplet at the end of the prayers.

As we begin this novena for Father Corapi and all who are effected by the allegations made against him, we lift him up in prayer, and especially emplore the intercession of the Pope who ordained him, Blessed John Paul II. We ask God’s forgiveness and mercy for all of Father’s faults and failings that may impede the flow of grace into his heart. We ask that he be imbued with a charitable spirit of forgiveness for any false allegations that have been brought against him in the past, and a restoration of his good name and priestly ministry.
Today bring to Me ALL MANKIND, ESPECIALLY ALL SINNERS, and immerse them in the ocean of My mercy. In this way you will console Me in the bitter grief into which the loss of souls plunges Me.
Let us pray for John Corapi, as a man who is subject to the same weaknesses as all mankind due to the fall of our first parents, and for all who fall out of grace who are overcome by sin; that our trust in Jesus and his infinite mercy may raise us up to His splendor and a newness of life.
Most Merciful Jesus, whose very nature it is to have compassion on us and to forgive us, do not look upon our sins but upon our trust which we place in Your infinite goodness. Receive us all into the abode of Your Most Compassionate Heart, and never let us escape from It. We beg this of You by Your love which unites You to the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Eternal Father, turn Your merciful gaze upon all mankind and especially upon poor sinners, all enfolded in the Most Compassionate Heart of Jesus. For the sake of His sorrowful Passion show us Your mercy, that we may praise the omnipotence of Your mercy for ever and ever. Amen.
