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.

Put yourselves in the shoes of a black dad. What would you say to your son who feels disrespected in our country today?
Moving Up and Out...
There needs to be a shift in our perception of God, from The One who looks down on us, to The One who looks upon us with love, and can smile at what he sees. To think correctly about the Church, we must adapt our vision accordingly. We must realize that we are not simply a liturgical church, concerned only with rubric and the "how" of worship. We are a Eucharistic community, which gathers together to be nourished by the bread of Life and who leave the table to become that bread for others.

His death was announced on Facebook via "The McLaughlin Group" page. A message from "The McLaughlin Group" family stated:
“Earlier this morning, a beloved friend and mentor, Dr. John McLaughlin, passed away peacefully at the age of 89. As a former jesuit priest, teacher, pundit and news host, John touched many lives. For 34 years, The McLaughlin Group informed millions of Americans. Now he has said bye bye for the last time, to rejoin his beloved dog, Oliver, in heaven. He will always be remembered.”
The political commentary talk show hosted by McLaughlin began in 1982 and continued until his death. The show was featured mostly on station affiliates of the Public Broadcasting Service. At the time of McLaughlin's death, the program featured four political commentators: conservative syndicated columnist Pat Buchanan; conservative political journalist Tom Rogan of The National Review; liberal blogger Eleanor Clift of The Daily Beast; and liberal syndicated columnist Clarence Page of the Chicago Tribune.
McLaughlin's final public message to his fans aired Aug. 13 on PBS. The longtime Republican also explained on his show's website that he had missed recent tapings because of poor health.
"Yet my spirit is strong and my dedication to the show remains absolute," he wrote.
McLaughlin was known for his loud and boisterous style when hosting the show. The comedian Dana Carvey, as a cast member of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," parodied McLaughlin in a sendup of his political talk show.
McLaughlin was a Jesuit priest who then became a speechwriter for President Richard Nixon. He moved on to write for the National Review magazine, and he hosted various radio and TV programs until he found great success with “The McLaughlin Group.”
He also appeared in several movies and made a cameo appearance on the television sitcom “Cheers".
