Today Father John Corapi’s Order, SOLT, has published a press release that is heartbreaking. Read it here.
Here at Coming Home, we have had our Novena of Divine Mercy for Father Corapi. Beyond this, there is really nothing to say. Each of us is a servant of our Lord and God. We do His bidding, and we must remain obedient to those in authority over us, remembering that as Paul tells us, all authority comes from God. Father Corapi has been ordered home to SOLT. He needs to go. He needs to heal in body and soul. He needs to be the priest that Blessed Pope John Paul II ordained him to be.
And his following? Father was at his best when he preached the Gospel and the availability of the sacraments. In fifty years I have seen Popes, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Religious come and go.
The Gospel, the Church, the Sacraments are the only things that endure.
We follow Jesus Christ, and hope in Him alone. It is a hope that Paul tells us will never be disappointed.
Go home to your brothers, Father Corapi. Whatever the truth of the allegations, you are under obedience. God Bless you and we thank you for your witness to Life, to the Truth. The season for healing is upon us all, and the Holy Spirit has Spoken through your superiors. For love of those whose faith may be weak, this final public act of obedience will unite them with the Magisterium, whence they will derive their future guidance and strength. In your humble submission, you will validate everything that you thundered from a thousand pulpits.
