Episode 7: Why correcting Pope Francis is a true act of charity

Season 1, Ep. 7

Since launching The John-Henry Westen Show a number of viewers have raised questions about the issues I’ve brought up.

I was on the road last week, so I decided to take the opportunity to answer some of those questions on this week’s episode.

I discuss the importance of joy in the apostolate – why we must be “happy warriors” even in the midst of the darkness around us in the Church and culture. I share two examples of these “happy warriors” – two men who are in fact most vilified in our Church for speaking the truth about the current crisis: Cardinal Raymond Burke and Bishop Athanasius Schneider.

And I discuss the need for authentic charity towards Pope Francis. The question we must ask ourselves is: Do I really love Pope Francis enough to express concern about what’s going on? Do I love him enough to tell him I’m concerned for his soul?

The John-Henry Westen Show is also available by video on the show’s YouTube channel, and on my LifeSite blog.


Episode 5: Pope Francis’ disturbing support of a Cardinal caught covering up sex abuse

Season 1, Ep. 5

One of the most problematic aspects of Pope Francis’ pontificate has been his promotion and support for prelates who undermine Church teaching.

There are numerous examples, but today on Episode 5 of The John-Henry Westen Show, I’m going to talk about one of the most disturbing and prominent cases.

Cardinal Godfried Danneels died on March 14 this year. We must pray earnestly that God has mercy on his soul, because he is very much in need of such prayers.

Cardinal Danneels should have been one of the most controversial prelates in the Catholic Church, not only for his opposition to Catholic teaching,but especially in our times because he was caught on tape in 2010 telling a victim of pedophile sexual abuse by a bishop friend of his not to go public with the abuse. But, as I explain on today’s show, Cardinal Danneels was in the limelight with Pope Francis.
