Fr Z on Fr Corapi

Fr John Zuhlsdorf  (who was Ordained with Fr Corapi) writes:

I haven’t written much about Fr. John Corapi, because I honestly don’t know much about what is going on.  I don’t know the details.   But I am sad to read that he is leaving active ministry.  I am profoundly sad.

Fr. Corapi and I were ordained together, by John Paul II, in 1991.  I didn’t know him at that time.  After ordination I think I only ran into him twice, at conferences were we were both speakers.  So, I don’t know him.  I don’t know what is up with his life or situation and I won’t speculate.  Nevertheless, by that tendril connection of our ordination, I have imagined a kind of bond with him and all the other men scattered across the world, even though I didn’t know most of them personally.

So, I don’t have much to say about Fr. Corapi.  I do have a few things to say about the circumstances surrounding this sad announcement…

See what he has to say here.
