The Church is not a democracy

Father John Corapi reminds us that Eternal Truth is not subject to a majority vote.

When did Priests become so animated?
He was preaching it like a black, Baptist minister! Not that there's anything wrong with that...just never saw a Priest getting down with it.

Father Corapi was a personal favorite of the late Pope John Paul II. In fact, he was ordained by the Pope himself!

Father Corapi's story is pretty amazing. He went from the depths of the drug culture (he has been both very wealthy as well as homeless) to (by the Grace of God) becoming a priest. He has devoted the rest of his life to preaching prayer and repentance-and I do mean preaching.

He is quite a man to meet in person as well.

No wonder I liked him. He's "been there, done that," so in the vernacular he's using, he's keeping it real.
Where is his parish?

He doesn't have one, he's a member of a religious order, the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity. He travels the country preaching, and the proceeds from the sales of his video and audio tapes benefits the religious order that he is a member of. He's a circuit rider-a traveling evangelist in the truest sense.

I've been told that 2007 may be the last year he will travel extensively for quite some time. He is going to devote a good part of time in future years to writing several books about spiritual warfare. I am certain one of them will contain his life story. I saw him in Lexington two years ago. I had a chance to see him in Chattanooga this year, but I had a scheduling conflict, unfortunately.

When I did last see him, it was right after JPII's funeral-he was there and told all about it.
