Matt Abbott has the scoop:
The other day, I received an email with a link to a public LinkedIn business profile that, by all appearances, has been created by either Father Corapi himself or someone who knows him personally.
Click here to view it.
I’m not able to ascertain when the profile was actually created; it could have been done sometime in the last several weeks. It does look authentic, though, and includes two apparently recent photos (only one of which is visible in the profile’s public version) of Father Corapi in street clothes.
His profile does not assert that he’s per se left the priesthood or the Church; however, he writes that he’s “not any longer engaged in public ministry in the Catholic Church.” This makes sense, as there was no indication he was going to return to active ministry since he dropped out of sight a few years ago.
Still, it now appears Father Corapi is indeed returning to public life, albeit in a different, and more limited, capacity.
Read on to learn more.
UPDATE: A priest reader makes an observation on Twitter, regarding the CV details on LinkedIn. He notes:
“The theology degrees don’t seem to add up…a STB in Spain wouldn’t be needed if he did a Masters at Holy Apostles first. STB and MDiv are equivalent degrees.”
I also couldn’t help but notice that the author of the Linked In profile refers to the period he served in “Deaconal” ministry, not “diaconal.”
