The Corapi case: what was said, and what wasn’t

July 8, 2011

There’s been a lot of back-and-forth over the last several hours about John Corapi’s response yesterday to the SOLT statement of 5 July, summarizing the order’s findings and directing him, under obedience, to return to the order and live in community.

It might be useful for all who are interested to see what exactly was said — and what wasn’t.

Below is a brief summary, based purely on what is contained in the SOLT press release[More]
Note Holy Cannoli mentioned this post in SOLT: Father Corapi found guilty.

Disclosing the alledged faults committed by Father Corapi without necessity is a sin.

B.S. It's a legiltamate news story put forth by the Director of SOLT. You and your pals don't like it because the Sheep Dog was your hero. Too bad. You should pick your heroes more careflully
For if he is really guilty of some secret sin, still he has not lost the good opinion of others, and of this he is robbed when others publish his alledged … [More]

You still don't get it.
But you do? LOL

You are quote mongering, this time verbatim, and seemingly proud of it.
It's a legitamate update to a news story directly related to the Catholic faith. I know you're into hero worship, but too bad for you.

It's strange to see this, over and again, and it in no way reflects well on you.
Actually, it doesn't reflect well on your hero, the Black SheepDog, and that's why your complaining. It must be devastating to discover that one of your heroes may have … [More]

Benny opines:

Whenever I see somebody delighting in somebody else's misery, piling on, taking his daily dose of pleasure vicariously in the suffering of others, I am reminded why the justice of man is nothing before the justice of God, and I think of John's words, and also of Christ's words, where He Himself said he came to save sinners.

You're making a lot of assumptions there, Benny.

I've quoted directly from a SOLT press release … [More]

Press Release Concerning Fr John Corapi from SOLT Regional Priest Servant

July 5, 2011

A woman, well known to Fr. John Corapi, mailed SOLT a signed letter detailing allegations of Fr. Corapi's sexual activity with adult women, abuse of alcohol and drugs, improper sacramental practices, violation of his promise of poverty, and other wrongdoing.

After receiving the allegation, SOLT formed a three person fact-finding team to ensure that it handled this matter in accordance with canonical norms.… [More]

Welcome to all of you fans of the Black SheepDog.

Post your support for an individual that his own order [SOLT] does not consider as fit for ministry.…/press-release-c…

In a July 5 press release, Father Gerard Sheehan, the priest’s superior, outlines multiple violations of Father Corapi’s holy orders and directs him to return to the community.

SOLT’s fact-finding team has acquired information from Father Corapi’s emails, various witnesses and public sources that, together, state that, during his years of public ministry:

— He did have sexual relations and years of cohabitation (in California and Montana) with a woman known to him, when the relationship … [More]

To me, the most astounding thing about the lawsuit [The B.S.'s lawsuit] is the lurid details Corapi decides to include, details that, while showing she [the alleged victim] is not exactly a saint, do not do him any favors either. For example, the brief argues that "[her] Letter contained numerous false, malicious and unprivileged statements about Corapi including...Corapi met [her] when she was sent to meet him by an escort service whom Corapi had contacted; Corapi was a regular drug purchaser … [More]

"EWTN pulled Fr. Corapi’s programs following the priest’s announcement on Ash Wednesday that he has been publicly accused of drug abuse and sexual relationships with several women. Fr. Corapi has denied the allegations.

"In the weeks since then, EWTN has come under intense criticism for its decision.

"In his statement, Warsaw [EWTN's President] said that much of that criticism has been “shrill and uncharitable.” He said that many people have threatened to withhold donations and have made [More]
