He's great; I'm glad he's healthy....and I suppose I should go exercise.

He's always been such a great and motivating speaker!

Yes, I like his message about exercise and our responsibilities to our temples of the Holy Spirit...wish he had phrased it like that. The general topic was an important one and I am sure I needed to hear it.

I can't help but feel a bit concerned and distracted, however, by odd components of this video and his appearance...like his so, so puffy eyes and why on earth is he coloring his beard and mentioning a female personal trainer?!

Unnecessary. He might have chosen just to leave it at persoanl trainer....

Fear it will lead people to wonder...and I am one of his admirers! Of course, he can have a personal trainer, and of course she can be a woman and many people dye their gray..guess I just don't equate that with priests, the "alter Christi." I have all his tapes and have seen Father Corapi speak live and thought him to be no-nonsense. Surprised by how this video seems less like the confident priest I remember. He did have a year of sickness and perhaps this is just a natural reaction to feel/look youthful and embrace his health...

God bless our dear priests and protect them!

Sorry my comment isn't really on topic. I just clicked over from Dawn's blog, and wanted to say "hi" from a Georgia peach living in Japan. I miss Georgia! My best friend is still in Atlanta, and is also a Catholic homeschooler, so you made me think of her.

I enjoyed looking through your beautiful blog. You have such lovely photos!
