Father Corapi

In pondering Father Corapi’s situation and the “Choice” HE is now making, it causes me to ponder my own life and the situations I have been in and put them into perspective of my own life in the faith. Its through our life DES ASTERS, such as the one Father Corapi is and has been going through, that we pull closer to our Lord Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, and NOT cut ourselves off from it or Our Lord. I’m no stranger to them, through my own bad “Choices” in life but, in the end, now that is, NOTHING can take me away from my Lord or the Church He gave to us. Not even the words and actions of a man like Corapi. James 1:12 (NIV) Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the victor’s crown, the life God has promised to those who love him.”

I beg my readers to read through every one of my posts and SEE the daily struggles I face that have brought me CLOSER to our Lord. My experience in this exile, in regards to Fr. Corapis, is very similar, but his ending is just not the answer.

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

When the story first broke, “New Evangelization, Same Old Temptations“,

“we have to take into account that many more scandals will come to light for any other soul on the path to fullness in Christ. It is very easy to be tempted into vainglory when we are faced in today’s world with spreading the message of God. I’m not here to condemn or judge or choose sides in the matter or any that will arise. What I do want to point out is that with the new media, we all have to make sure we do not “Idolize” the presenter of God’s message, but rather KNOW God who allows the soul to bring His message. If we idolize the earthly messenger, we have to understand that we are not giving our full attention to God. Many times we do this every day and when the messenger falls, we to fall with him rather then holding on to God who is the true Messenger, through the work of His Son, to the Holy Spirit which brings the message through the actions of each of us.”

Today, I bring you a message from Father Joe on this situation. Black Sheep Dog or BLACK WOLF? Please read this! I WILL NOT follow the man, Father Corapi, I will follow the word Of Christ Jesus and the Catholic Church He built on the Rock, given to Peter. I will ALWAYS pray for him and those who choose his path, rather then our Lords.

“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” Matthew 16:18

New Evangelization, Same Old Temptations

With the call for “New Evangelization” we all must take a few steps back, and not to place the soul being used to speak the message, above the true “Messenger” Never forget:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; Do not have any other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing children for the iniquity of parents, to the third and the fourth generation of those who reject me, but showing steadfast love to the thousandth generation of those who love me and keep my commandments.” Exodus 20:2-6

In light of the new scandal or charges being brought against Father Corapi, we have to take into account that many more scandals will come to light for any other soul on the path to fullness in Christ. It is very easy to be tempted into vainglory when we are faced in today’s world with spreading the message of God. I’m not here to condemn or judge or choose sides in the matter or any that will arise.

Many times we do this every day and when the messenger falls, we to fall with him rather then holding on to God who is the true Messenger, through the work of His Son, to the Holy Spirit which brings the message through the actions of each of us.

Matthew 22:36-39

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
