Santa Cruz Media Statement for Fr. John Corapi

Keep praying for priests!

Statement of Santa Cruz Media, Inc. Relative to Fr. Corapi’s Suspension

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

    I am definitely praying for Fr. Corapi. I know he is innocent of these terrible allegations. I will also pray for his accuser, that she will have a change of heart and admit that she is not telling the truth. I love you, Fr. Corapi. You have really helped me in so many ways.

    What is Father Corapi’s association with Medugorje, please? It is in the charity of Christ that I ask this.

    I am praying for you, during this most difficult time. I believe, you will come out stronger than ever. I Love You!! Fr. Corapi, you have forever changed my life. I listen to your tapes everyday and I know the Truth will Prevail. I back you up 100%.

  5. E.M. Villasenor Says:

    I did not believe this news when I first heard of it regarding Fr. Corapi. These heathens are trying harder and harder, to break the Catholic church in terms of money and the Faith. Many saints including St. Padre Pio were falsely accused in their lifetime and Fr. Corapi is another innocent clergy. Fr. Corapi, we will unite our suffering’s with you during this time of lent.
    May the Almighty God & His mother give you the strength to battle with Satan!
