Review of Fr. Corapi’s Buffalo Conference – Part 2

August 17, 2009

The conference was 10 hours. It was a long day in the HSBC Arena, but it was a good day. The standard  agenda was an hour talk with a 45 minute break. Fr. Corapi was on fire with the Holy Spirit. An overview of his four sermons can be found in this post. While he did intersperse politics within his sermons he only did so because popular culture and politics directly impact peoples views on religion and God. If people are constantly being told that God is dead they start to act that way. Fr. Corapi wants to get us on fire with the Holy Spirit to help bring life to those who are dead in the Spirit. All of Father’s sermons will be available on his website.

Just before lunch we had mass in the arena. A mass for 11,000 people! It was beautiful. The celebrant was The Most Rev. Edward U. Kmiec D.D. Bishop of Buffalo. The bishop said he has kept a journal of all of the masses he has said in his 47 years of being a priest. The special masses he creates an entry with a red pen; this mass was a red letter mass. Bishop Kmiec also renamed the HSBC Arena: The Holy Spirit Blessed Church. He was very happy with the turn out. There were about 70 concelebrating priests and deacons on hand for the distribution of the Eucharist during the mass. It was an awesome sight seeing the huge crowd receive our Lord in the Eucharist. At the end of the mass, Fr. Corapi led the arena in the final prayer of the Act of Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary.

Lunch was a bit chaotic at the arena. You’d wait in a long line only to get to the counter and be told that they had just run out of hot dogs. Food planning for an all day crowd could of been better. After the hot dog disappointment we went outside. People were every where, including protesters with bull horns across the street.
