In case you missed it last night, here’s a video clip of our senior editor, Joan Frawley Desmond, on Raymond Arroyo’s EWTN news program The World Over last night. Joan has been following the Father Corapi story closely.

Bishop Gracida has had a good deal to say about Father Corapi. He indicates that Father’s faculties have come through SOLT and that he has never done any parish work in the diocese of Corpus Christi. Is he wrong, or is Fr. Corapi’s bio that said he did parish work in St. Anthony’s in Robbstown. As SOLT did not become a Society of Apostolic Life until 1994 (while Father was ordained in 1991), wasn’t it Bishop Gracida that provided him with priestly faculties in those first years?
Was Fr. Flanagan still the superior at the point that SOLT became a Society of Apostolic Life in 1994? If so, wasn’t it he and Bishop Gracida that obtained such status so that SOLT could begin granting faculties? Why did they give permission to Fr. Corapi to continue living in a manner that was not consistent with Canon Law for such societies? How could SOLT be held to an agreement that Fr. Corapi made with the founder when the founder is still very much alive?
