Having heard the announcement my own view is that he is making a grave mistake. I do not doubt that what he says about the crisis in leadership of the U.S Church (and beyond?) is correct. As you may know there is another priest serving a prison term in America on what very many - including bishops - believe to be false evidence. Personally I believe Fr. Corapi to be innocent but I cannot endorse what he is doing now. The priesthood is more than the public exercise of the ministry, and God does sometimes ask us to become victims. Every priest is called to victimhood. In Fr. Corapi's case this victimhood requires his silence. In spite of all that he has done for the Church, I now believe he is missing an opportunity for growth in sanctification. His priesthood could have entered a new and very fruitful phase. He seems to need a public platform. I think he may be seriously wrong in pursuing this. God may have other plans.
