I have been praying about this, as I am sure many of you have been. I particularly love this line from The Anchoress:
"Old Scratch has his hand in all of this, because — whatever the real story is — someone is lying, so the Father of Lies must be a part of it, in any case. And it’s Lent."
I know that I am not God, therefore I cannot possibly know what the truth is. I have been wrong so many times. Like recently when I wrote a letter to the state advocating the restoration of nursing license for an RN who had a long history of diversion. She got her license back, and now faces charges for stealing oxycontin from old people. And she doesn't even deny it. And she was doing that when I wrote the letter for her. I believed her 100% when she said she wasn't. She was very convincing.
I will not judge whether Fr. Corapi is innocent or not. I will hope and pray he is. That's what's appropriate for me to do. I really hope he is innocent because he is someone I have listened to and admired.
