[FULL TEXT] Statement of Santa Cruz Media, Inc. Relative to Fr. Corapi’s Suspension

“There is no evidence at this time that Fr. Corapi did anything wrong, only the unsubstantiated rant of a former employee, who, after losing her job with this office, physically assaulted me and another employee and promised to “destroy” Father Corapi…”

Fr. John Corapi

 

The following is a statement from Santa Cruz Media, Inc., found on FatherCorapi.Com:

Santa Cruz Media, Inc. is the owner of all of Fr. John Corapi’s intellectual property and the DVDs, CDs, and books that flow from it. We are a secular corporation and not affiliated with the Catholic Church in any way. As such, we are not under the jurisdiction of any bishop or other official in the Catholic Church, although we have the utmost respect for Church authority.

We fully support Rev. John Corapi in this terrible trial, not surprisingly having begun on Ash Wednesday. Through the sacrifice and struggle of the desert and all of the dark moments that this entails, we are confident that the glory of the risen Lord will shine forth from the power of the Resurrection and Easter.

We have consulted with a number of canon lawyers. They have assured us that the actions of the Bishop of Corpus Christi, Texas are, on several points of canon law, illicit. It is our fervent hope that The Dallas Charter will be changed because of false accusations like this. There is no evidence at this time that Fr. Corapi did anything wrong, only the unsubstantiated rant of a former employee, who, after losing her job with this office, physically assaulted me and another employee and promised to “destroy” Father Corapi. We all continue to pray for this person, and we ask you to do the same.

We sincerely believe that the work Fr. Corapi has done is of greatest value to the Church, hence hated by the devil. We fully intend to make Fr. Corapi’s material available as a service to the Church and the world for as long as we possibly can.

The Church provides no financial support to Fr. Corapi. He has to pay for his own legal representation, medical costs, food, housing, etc. We have never accepted donations or charitable contributions of any kind. We are supporting Father’s efforts to defend himself. Your purchase of products from Santa Cruz Media helps provide the funding for Father’s continued work as well as the legal expenses he continues to incur as a result of these malicious allegations.

Father Corapi and all of us here at Santa Cruz Media, Inc. greatly appreciate your kindness, support, and prayers. Please continue to pray for Father Corapi and his accuser, as well as all priests who find themselves in this unfortunate situation.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Bobbi Ruffatto
Vice President of Operations
Santa Cruz Media, Inc.

  1. My mother and I were aghast at the accusations. We knew immediately there was no way they were true. Offering our support as well to Fr. Corapi.
    Much Love

  2. Father Corapi has be been Kissed by the Cross with these allegations. Surely our Lord Jesus Christ knows the pain and suffering of being falsely accused.
    I pray for Father Corapi and especially for his accuser.
    May Our Lord shine the light of truth on this situation as is His will.

  3. My parents and I watch Fr. Corapi every week. We are shocked anyone would make such false allegations. We would like to send our support to Fr. Corapi and Santa Cruz Media Inc.,. and let Fr. Corapi and everyone at Santa Cruz Media know they are in our prayers. So is his false accuser. I believe she has been touched by
    Satan.
    I am digusted EWTN instead of showing their support for Fr. Corapi have pulled his programmes – it is times like these that believers will be tested on: whether we support other believers, especially, the clergy or join with their persecutors as EWTN are doing by no longer showing Fr. Corapi’s programmes.
    This woman physically assaulted two people – why hasn’t she been arrested?

  4. To all concerned,

    God bless Fr. Corapi and all who work with him. Keep up the “good fight” and remember this is a war with Satan who wishes to destroy us all.
