Father Guarzino: “I Did The Only Thing a Faithful Catholic Priest Could Do”
Father Marcel Guarzino has finally responded to vicious attacks from the GLBT community.
The controversy began on February 25th in Gaithersburg, Maryland when Father Guarzino refused to give Holy Communion to Barbara Johnson, an openly Pro-Choice, Buddhist, Lesbian political activist.
Before the funeral for Johnson’s mother began, she introduced Father Guarzino to a woman she announced as her “lover”.
Later while Johnson delivered the eulogy, Father Guarzino left the alter and did not reappear until she had finished.
As Johnson approached Father Guarzino to receive Holy Communion, he told her “I cannot give you Communion because you live with a woman, and in the eyes of the church, that is a sin.”
Following the funeral, Father Guarzino also decided to skip the final blessing at the gravesite.
Father Guarzino remained silent for nearly a month but has finally responded to the controversy. He declared he “did the only thing a faithful Catholic priest could do”.
God bless Father Marcel Guarzino and the Catholic Church.
