View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Fr. Corapi to host local live call-ins

Father John Corapi is scheduled to be the main speaker at an August 15 conference in Buffalo to mark the 10th anniversary of Catholic radio locally - and in anticipation of that event he will host a live call-in radio show four consecutive Wednesdays.

The shows will run from 5 to 6 p.m. on July 15, 22 and 29 and Aug. 5 on WHIC 1460-AM here in Rochester and on 101.7-FM. in Buffalo.

If you want to ask him a questions during those shows, call 1-877-511-5483 during the listed times. You can also tune into the show online at

Holy Family Communications, which runs both stations, is hosting the Aug. 15 conference, titled "Lord and Giver of Life: The Person and the Power of the Holy Spirit," to celebrate its 10th anniversary. HFC has recruited 80 priests to assist Buffalo Bishop Edward U. Kmiec as he celebrates Mass during the conference. The conference will take place at Buffalo's HFC Arena.

Fr. Corapi was been forced to curtail his public speaking events due to illness, and this conference is the only one scheduled for him so far this year.

At the conference, Father Corapi will give four presentations, titled "Theology of the Person and Power of the Holy Spirit," "The Gift Who Contains All Gifts," "The Holy Spirit is Given to Those Who Obey," and "The Spirit We Have Been Given is No Cowardly Spirit."

At last report, more than 10,000 people from 45 states as well as Canada, Australia and the Philippines already have purchased tickets for the conference.

Tickets to the conference are still available. You purchase them by calling 1-888-223-6000 or visiting
