No Surgery For Father

John Corapi

Update! Fr. Corapi called into the show "Life on The Rock" last night on EWTN and talked extensively about whats been happening with him..

Father John CorapiHe said he's been through every test they can think of at the mayo clinic and he does NOT have cancer, they have not found any kind of disease or infections but they are almost 100% positive it's a parathyroid tumor. Father said they ran all the tests they can for this and it's not showing up but that doesn't mean it's not there and most of his doctors believe it is there. So they are making him wait a few more months to see if it finally shows up and thats why surgery has been put off. You can't go after what you can't see..

Father also said he's feeling a little bit better than he has been but he's still pretty sick and is unable too travel for now and needs his rest. The host of the show said that everyone is and will continue too pray for him and Father Corapi was delighted at that and asked for it too continue and he spoke as he always does, optimistic and just as the holy priest that he is.

Please keep your prayers coming for Father Corapi.

Thank you Robyn for the update.

Let's us pray:

Memorare, O piissima Virgo Maria, non esse auditum a saeculo, quemquam ad tua currentem praesidia, tua implorantem auxilia, tua petentem suffragia, esse derelictum. Ego tali animatus confidentia, ad te, Virgo Virginum, Mater, curro, ad te venio, coram te gemens peccator assisto. Noli, Mater Verbi, verba mea despicere; sed audi propitia et exaudi.

Hi John Michael!
Thanks for this post. I do not have EWTN, so it is good to know here what is going on with Fr.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks Easter,

It is great news. Thanks be to God.

Do you ever watch EWTN from the website? When we didn't have EWTN I would watch it using Real Player. For the kids programing I would pause it the start of the program and let them sleep. When they woke up, we hit play and they could watch good Catholic programing for kids.

Peace be to you and yours.

We watch it often over the net but sometimes have problem's with it pausing and buffering.

Thanks for the news on Fr. Corapi.

John Michael said...


Good point. Sometimes the buffering and pausing get a little sticky. Don't know if that's a Real Player problem or EWTN. The others don't let you pause and play later.

Thanks Therese!
