CORPUS is a faith community affirming an inclusive priesthood rooted in a reformed and renewed Church.
CORPUS, celebrating forty-two years of service to the people of God, is one of the oldest reform groups in the Catholic Church, and is active in reform movements both in the U.S. and abroad. We are committed to working for a renewed priesthood of married and single men and women dedicated to serving God through the Community of Believers.
Faith and Justice: Amoris Laetitia cries for discussion. To assist, I have drawn up study questions for individual reading or group discussions.

We are fast becoming a "no touch, don't talk to strangers "society. It's not just the Democratic and Republican parties that are failing to communicate. It's all of us being smothered by our fears. We need to rise above our fears and begin to be human beings and neighbors.
The Language of the Soul
We need always to go beyond the literal meaning of the words to the substance of what God wants us to believe and live by. The confusion is compounded even more when we reduce our prayer to a debate over the words or phrases - or even the specific language - we use. Ultimately, our prayer should not become a debate of semantics, laboring over specific words or phrases. It should, as Jesus taught us, rise from within, speaking the language of the soul. The Lord's Prayer sums up the teaching of Jesus. It is also a prayer that offers us a glimpse of his understanding of the Father: his awe and reverence for God, his childlike, simple-yet-strong faith in his Father, and his strength to go bravely through life no matter what comes.
