Corapi--were you helped by him? Help him now and pray!

He taught many of us, and many of us are where we are due to hearing his teaching. If we all utilize what we were given  to give it back and pray for the man, he will have a great wave of prayer in his time of great need.

He recommended Mother Teresa's 911, so lets pray it for him now.

9 Memorares-

assumpt.jpg (4668 bytes) Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother;
to you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer me.

1 Rosary

1 Chaplet of Divine Mercy

Also I think it is fitting to ask for the prayers of Blessed Pope John Paul II-

.- The Diocese of Rome, in charge of promoting the beatification of late Pope John Paul II, released an official prayer in different languages, to implore favors through the intercession of the Pontiff.

The text of the prayer reads: 

"O Blessed Trinity, we thank you for having graced the church with Pope John Paul II and for allowing the tenderness of your fatherly care, the glory of the cross of Christ, and the splendor of the Holy Spirit, to shine through him.

"Trusting fully in your infinite mercy and in the maternal intercession of Mary, he has given us a living image of Jesus the Good Shepherd, and has shown us that holiness is the necessary measure of ordinary Christian life and is the way of achieving eternal communion with you.

"Grant us, by his intercession, and according to your will, the graces we implore, hoping that he will soon be numbered among your saints. Amen."

Prayer to Obtain a Favor Through the Intercession of Archbishop Sheen

(For Private Use Only)

Eternal Father, You alone grant us every blessing in Heaven and on earth, through the redemptive mission of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ, by the working of the Holy Spirit.   In every age, You raise up men and women outstanding in holiness, whose faithful service has contributed significantly to the mission of the Church.  In this very way, You used the life and work of Your servant, Archbishop Fulton John Sheen.  He inspired great numbers of Catholics and other people of good will to grow in virtue and lead lives pleasing to You and of service to their brothers and sisters in need.  He encouraged them to embrace the 'Gospel of Life' by recognizing that in all its circumstances, 'Life is worth living.'
If it be according to Your Will, Eternal Father, glorify Your servant, Archbishop Fulton John Sheen, by granting the favor I now request through his prayerful intercession (mention your request here).  I make this prayer confidently in Jesus' Name, through the merits of His Passion, Death and Resurrection.   

And Last but not least-

  Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.



  1. I became a commited Catholic before I came across the former Father Corapi. But when I did I really enjoyed listening to him on EWTN. He is a great preacher. One that I looked up to and admired. I wanted more priests to be like him. And I don't mean that masculine swagger that he has, but the ability to inspire. I have to admit that the majority of Catholic priests are rather boring. I'm one of those people that needs a good homily. I am not a saint or even inclined to the saintly. During the course of the day I may come across a dozen reasons to not believe. I need a good preacher to help me in my unbelief. A good preacher will turn all those negatives on their head and pull me closer to God. Corapi was one of those. You have to understand, most people are like me, not like all the Catholic bloggers around here. We need a Corapi. He let us down. He, if the SOLT allegations are true, is a fraud, was a fraud for quite a while. You can't say what he preached and not be commited to the Catholic life. You can't have that dsisconnect and keep moral authority. I can understanding a failing. But his failings are wide and deep and for quite a while. I pray for his soul. I pray he will repent. I hope he fades away so that we can all move on and the Church not get further besmirched.

  2. Manny, I can say with assurance that all of we bloggers have feet of clay, same as you. I can't begin to get my mind around the Corapi debacle. All I know from my little speck of dust perception is that he helped me. Even if "men intended it for evil, God meant it for good." Gen . 50:20. I am just remembering that which was good, and praying for the rest. Today I was able to pray at the shrine of Saint John Neumann.

  3. "we" bloggers, or "us" bloggers...idk? lol

  4. Probably "us bloggers" though "we bloggers" sounds better to my ear. ;)

    I like the way you are looking at this:
    Even if "men intended it for evil, God meant it for good."

  5. Thanks for the prayer suggestion- I'll do it1
