Father Corapi and Father E. both had groupies, right here on FR and elsewhere. Making a rock star out of a priest (or televangelist or any religious figure) is a sin. It’s called idolatry. Many here need to look inside themselves.
As for Father Corapi and Father E, they too are responsible. There were called to be priests, not rock stars. They should have re-directed the spotlights elsewhere, instead of soaking up the light.
The lesson will be lost, and the next priest/rock star will not fail to disappoint and we never seem to learn.
What is funny is that many who idolize their own religious figures, point fingers at others who do the same thing. Don’t get caught laughing at the Benny Hinns and Jimmy Swaggarts and then swoon at the Father Corapis. Idolatry is idolatry.
do you actually know what idolatry is?
someone who loves listening to and is inspired by anyone whether Corapi, Hinn or Swaggart is NOT idolatrous.
you need to buy a clue.
I would suggest going to youtube and listening to Father Corapi’s talks.
He always stressed his human frailty and pointed to Christ and the Truth and Answer.
This is a loss for all Christians, not just Catholics. Many of my Protestant friends admired Corapi.
