It appears that Fr. Corapi's superior had asked him to return to the main SOLT community, which is the order that Fr. Corapi was a part of. If this is the case, shouldn't Father Corapi have done so, since that was his superior's wish? I am further convinced that he is making a huge mistake if this is the case. Read the entire story here.
He (Father Sheehan) expressed disappointment that Father Corapi chose not to remain in SOLT and to refuse the order’s invitation for him to live in community, leaving his Montana home. Father Sheehan said he had tried to arrange a meeting with Father Corapi before any final decision was announced, but had not heard back from him. Father Sheehan said that SOLT would issue a statement shortly.
“We wanted him to come back to the community, and that would have meant leaving everything he has. It would have been a drastic change for him,” Father Sheehan said. “We will continue to move pastorally and charitably, taking steps to protect his good name.”
