(LifeSiteNews) — Today’s guest on The John-Henry Westen Show is Father Donald Calloway, a Catholic priest belonging to the Congregation of Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception and author of Consecration to St. Joseph.

In today’s episode, Father Calloway gives his take on all the latest Church craziness, specifically the Belgian bishops’ plan to bless same-sex “couples,” the German Synodal Way’s defiance of perennial teaching on homosexuality and abortion, and the formal correction of Pope Francis’ statement on Holy Communion.

Father Calloway says he’s praying for the “serious conversion” of our Church leaders who depart from infallible Church teaching on faith and morals and thus lead souls astray.

“Truth is the truth. We’re all wounded. We’re all broke. We’ve all got baggage and issues. We’re born into original sin. And we come with our wounds, with disordered passions and such. All of us,” Calloway says. “But we can’t, for the sake of being kind or wanting to endlessly accompany people in their sin, hold back from saying the truth. It’s the truth that sets us free.”

“I think that today there’s so much confusion because people want to be so tolerant and so accommodating that they’re really twisting the truth, the eternal truths of Jesus Christ,” he adds.

Related to this is the recent controversy surrounding reception of Holy Communion, and Father Calloway is adamant he would not give Communion to Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi unless they repented from their public advocacy for abortion and same-sex “marriage.”

“I’m going to do what’s pleasing to Jesus Christ. That’s my role as a priest. And what’s beneficial for souls,” he says. “And it’s beneficial to your soul that I do not give you Holy Communion because you are promoting murder, the murder of children, and advocating all kinds of other stuff … so-called [homosexual] marriage and all those things.”
