Fr Corapi gets it
#1
I was listening to his radio show tonight and he said that it's not necessarily a mortal sin to not have the tabernacle in the center of the sanctuary but what does that tell you about what the focus is on? He talked about one parish he went to where the tabernacle was in a broom closet and there was actually a broom resting against the tabernacle. He said he wouldn't have believed this either if he hadn't seen it with his own eyes.

He said depending on the survey it's between 40-70% of Catholics who don't believe in the Real Presence. What does that say about the state of the Church when the majority of Catholic don't believe in the most essential element of the Faith? The Eucharist is the center of the Catholic Faith and people don't believe. Then you have those people that say they believe in the Real Presence but they don't really believe because they don't believe we should have adoration, they receive Communion in the hand without thinking of what it is they are receiving and just go up like they are getting a cracker or potato chip. They don't kneel or show any kind of reverence. What does that say about the state of the Church?

He said that 75% of Catholics don't go to Mass and he talked about how people will come up to him and tell him that such and such a family member is a good Catholic and a good person but they just don't go to Mass. Fr. said it doesn't matter how good a person is if they don't go to Mass they aren't living their faith and they are in mortal sin if they aren't going to Mass.

Obviously I am paraphrasing Fr. Corapi's words but he sounded like a trad priest tonight. Now if he would just say the TLM he might really be on to something!
