Fumare as mentioned I above article

Added section on Wikipedia: “On March 18, 2011, Corapi was placed on administrative leave by his religious superior, Fr. Gerald Sheehan pending investigation of claims by a former employee that he had been in a relationship with her and is a drug addict. Corapi denied the allegations as false and said the process is flawed. Sheehan issued a statement emphasizing that the suspension “in no way implies Father Corapi is guilty of the allegation.”

At Geronimo’s Grave

by Steve Ray on March 21, 2011

At Geronimo’s grave in Fort Sill Oklahoma. He was always a childhood hero of mine. When I galloped around the woods and fields on my horse as a kid I always pretended I was Geronimo!

Thanks to Fr. Fukes, military chaplain here, I got a tour of Fort Sills and got to visit the graves of the Apaches brought here as prisoners to Oklahoma. I was interested to see Christian crosses on their tombstones.

Geronimo converted to Christianity. His nickname “Geronimo” came from the Mexicans who called out in prayer to St. Jerome (Geronimo) when battling against him.

More on him later. I am Lawton Oklahoma giving a parish mission and speaking at the Catholic school. Great folks here at Holy Family parish –a beautiful church to.
