Father_C_2Father Donald Calloway, MIC, a young, passionate priest, is no stranger to the topic of divorce: his parents divorced when he was young and by the time he was 10 he’d had three “fathers”. But even a loving stepfather could not stop the teenage rebellion--including running with the Japanese Mafia--that played out in part from the pain of divorce. Father Calloway’s story is riveting, as he offers hope to the hearts of parents who fear for the damage divorce may do to their kids. “Trust God,” he says. “My mother never imagined after divorce that her son would grow up to be a priest!” Website: www.FatherCalloway.com
