Excerpts of Easter 2009 message from Fr. Corapi

As I write this it is safe to say that there is more fear, insecurity, uncertainty, and distrust of authority than at any other time in my lifetime of over sixty years. This can be said for the United States and for most other countries in the Western world, probably the entire world. Why? The secular and worldly thinker will come up with a veritable flock of cackling, screeching, barking, whining and screaming excuses. They will all be wrong. To understand our tenuous position, one must go to the order of causes rather than mere effects. The serious illness we see manifest socially, economically, and politically has its origin in the moral and spiritual realm.
