Post-Election Message from Fr. Corapi: “There is Still A God In Heaven”

Drew Mariani’s page at the Relevant Radio site includes a new letter from Fr. Corapi:

The American people have now made it abundantly clear who they want to lead them, and the policies and practices that this president-elect has represented for some time, they can now claim as their own. Actions have consequences, and I am sure God has duly noted what our priorities are in the US of A. Economic matters would seem to take precedence over moral matters; money more important than life itself to most people (I guess they don’t consider almost 50,000,000 innocent children murdered by abortion part of life).

Now we shall see what the fruit of such a tree will be. I predict that we won’t have to wait long. In recent months we have seen “corrections” in the stock market, housing market, and banking industries. Now we’ll see if God orchestrates a “correction” in a country and a world that has demonstrated quite clearly that it prefers convenience and wealth to life itself.

Regardless of whatever happens next, remember there is still a God in Heaven and He loves you. He is infinitely merciful—and He is infinitely just as well.

God Bless You

Fr. John Corapi

Eleventh Hour Election Alert – Fr. Corapi

Fr. Corapi produced a half hour video today that all Catholics (and Americans) should see. It expounds upon what Bishop Rene H. Gracida just said boldly in a recent radio spot. (He is the Bishop that ordained Fr. Corapi a Deacon).

“This is Bishop Rene H. Gracida, reminding all Catholics that they must vote in this election with an informed conscience. A Catholic cannot be said to have voted in this election with a good conscience if they have voted for a pro-abortion candidate. Barack Hussein Obama is a pro-abortion candidate.”

Death Wish – New Video from Fr. Corapi

“A large number of endangered, unwanted, and unborn children held a town hall meeting on the 4th of July–alarmed at the brutal and untimely killing of millions of their brothers and sisters in recent years. That the murderous war waged on them had the full force and respectability of the law made their plight all the more terrifying. Their complaint was humble and it was simple. They were not distressed by rising gas prices, or the deteriorating economy in general. They were not even frightened by the exponential increase of natural disasters. The threat of global warming or global terrorism did not greatly disturb them.

They had become an endangered species, and little had been done to answer their terrified and silent screams from the womb… “
—An excerpt from Father Corapi’s new video entitled “Death Wish”

Are We Silent in the Face of Evil? Wake Up America! – New Video from Father Corapi

In a powerful and dramatic sermon, Father Corapi speaks to Catholics and other Christians, as well as all people of good will, regarding the moral obligation to form and vote your conscience. Visit for more from Father John Corapi.

“New War/Old War” – Father Corapi

Drawing an analogy from military training Father Corapi speaks of spiritual training, spiritual weapons and tactics, and the key to being a good soldier or a good Christian: To serve, not to be served. “Immorality is unAmerican and a threat to national security,” has become a battle cry for many seeking to bring us back to the moral uprightness we once took pride in.

My Spiritual Secret Weapon

My grandmother passed away on December 31, 2007, just shy of her 99th birthday. I had the opportunity to say a few words at the funeral:

Seems somehow strange to be in this church today… This
place was home for so many years.My sister and I were baptized here – by my uncle Fr. Don. Weall went to school just through those doors. I was an altar boy here and worked in the rectory after school.My brother and I played the organ for masses from grammar school through our college years. My dad had a special encounter with our Blessed Mother here.
Grandma walked to daily mass and usually sat right
there. I recall that on snowy days we had to be sure
to get up early to shovel – or else Grandma would be
outside with a shovel cleaning the walk herself!

In grammar school I started going to daily mass too
before school… that and I’m sure Grandma’s prayers had
some part in my ending up at Quigley (the now closed college-prep junior seminary for the Chicago Archdiocese).

Grandma lived with us from the time my Grandfather
passed away – when I was 4 years old. She was a part
of our everyday lives. So much so that it was easy to
forget sometimes how much of a rare thing and a
blessing this was. She saw her daughter and
grandchildren grow up and get married – and got to
meet her great grandchildren.

I have had the opportunity to look through the slides
that Grandma and Grandpa took through the years. Since
these were slides they were seldom seen until we had
them scanned into the computer. They include
incredible images of their numerous trips all around
the country, nature’s wonders and family gatherings.
Mountains, redwood forests, lakes and farms. These are
like opening a time capsule to a very different world
50 or 75 years ago. The focus on family and nature’s
beauty give an insight into things Grandma considered
most important

I was able to make a trip to Luxembourg some years ago
– where Grandma’s family is from – Uncle Bob who lived there took me on a tour and showed me thehouse where great grandpa grew up… Grandma had heard the stories about the house and the area – but had never seen it. She was thrilled to see the photos.

I recall a powerful image from John Paul II’s final
days. This was a photo of him on his knees silently
embracing a large cross during Good Friday services…
just as he embraced the crosses in his life and turned
his sufferings into an example and something
redemptive for those he loved.

Grandma too struggled in these last years. Her mind
was still sharp – but like JP – limited by a body that
no longer did what it used to do. Grandma had a large
painting of Jesus agony in the garden in her room for
many years… I noticed only recently that the image is
very similar to that of John Paul embracing the cross.

I recall also when JP2 passed away – I had the feeling
that somehow he had been like the little boy with his
finger in the dike – holding back the flood.

In my life – I believe Grandma was for me like that
little boy – holding back the flood. Through all my
successes, failures, trials, triumphs – and ordinary
days – she was there. She was my spiritual secret
weapon. Her prayers I am sure helped me get where I am

There is a scripture quote – “Eye has not seen, Ear
has not heard .. what God has ready for those who love
Him.” Grandma’s Uncle Jake lived to be 102. Grandma
often said she didn’t want to live to be 100. I think
she understood what Jesus promised.

Until these last weeks Grandma was seldom confused
like some at the rest home. She then began to get up
in the middle of the night to tell the nurse that her
husband was calling saying he needed her. I have to
believe he was – and that they are together again on
another incredible journey

I hope to live a long full life like Grandma and enjoy my children and
their children as much as she did us. And, when my time comes, I look forward
to our reunion. She is a special part of who I am.

And so we only say farewell – and not goodbye. .

See you later Grandma.
