IF FATHER CORAPI SAID THIS AND I GUESS HE DID, IT IS TRULY REPREHENSIBLE


MY PRIESTHOOD WASN'T ABOUT CELEBRATING THE MASS AND OTHER SACRAMENTS, SO WHAT I'LL BE DOING NOW IS WHAT I'VE BEEN DOING; I DON'T NEED TO BE CALLED FATHER TO DO WHAT I DO. WOW!--WORDSMITHING AND PARAPHRASE BY FATHER ALLAN MCDONALD--READ THE DEACONS TAKE ON THIS BY PRESSING THIS SENTENCE!

First, I don't know many priests who spend more than ten percent of their time celebrating the sacraments. Second, teaching is indeed part of sacred ministry, even in the strictest sense. Third, I wonder if he and Father Cutie' should get together, have a few beers and then get over themselves.

Shelton, Re-read 1 Corinthians 13and get back to us. Love is kind, it doesn't snipe - or something to that effect?

Poor Corapi has runaway mouth. As Sheep Dog he should look the veterinarian, St Francis, for some help with that.

Fr. Shelton, LOL!

WOW. Not just Fr. Corapi but all priests should heed and practice St. Francis's insightful advice. It applies to all egos, great and small - earned and unearned.

Love one another as I have loved you.

Actions, and sometimes silence, speak louder than uninformed, hateful words.

Anon: Kind is also telling someone their fly is open.

rcg. Very true, if done with discretion.

RCG. Hollering it across the room would be inappropriate. Also, asking the person, "Why have you left your fly open" woud be inappropriate.

Depends on the person. Corapi has made his fortune, and bed, being manly about things. He has put this stuff on the internet, so to continue with the allusion, he already walked into the crowded room under his own power. A real can laugh at himself when his friends tell he's making a fool of himself, and be grateful they told him. It also seems like a lot of Corapi supporters are worried his feelings will be hurt. That seems backwards to me. If, as Fr Shelton recommends, that Corapi gets over himself he should be willing to laugh at his foolishness and publicly thank God and the people who helped him back in line by telling others that that is what good Christian friends do. Forgiveness would be letting him live it down, laugh when it comes up again with the knowledge that he knows better and won't let it happen again. That is how a man does it.

Rcg. Not so. A real man stands up and fights for truth and his good name. If he were guilty, I doubt that he would be suing the accuser for defamation. His approach beats hiding behind the secret Church investigation.
