So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

There is another way, a third way—the way of love.

Reaching beyond the politics and polemics of a serious issue is a new video that proposes the Church's love and hope for people with same-sex attraction.

The video presents several men and women sharing their stories, heart-wrenching testimonies of courage and devastating emotional pain, stories of years and years of struggle and rejection, suffering, and finding love, intimacy and acceptance. The stories are open and honest.

If you are...
  • a person with same-sex attraction and living an active gay lifestyle, watch this video. You might be offended. More likely, you will be surprised. If you view the Catholic Church's teaching, or what you think is the Church's teaching, as cruel or harsh, then this video might just help you discover what the Church really proposes to all people. The Church, true to her Saviour, loves you! If you're curious about this proposal, check out the video.
If you are...
  • the parent of a child experiencing same-sex attraction, then this video will help you love your child more, and it will help you to help your child know that you love him or her.

If you are...
  • a christian who thinks that people with same-sex attraction are evil, then this video will provide a perspective that will help you love your neighbour more deeply and help you understand what Catholics believe.

If you are...
  • single or married and want to gain vital knowledge about God's love for you, and you seek guidance to live a life of love and authentic intimacy, then this video will help you trust in Jesus and grow in faith and love.

Regardless of your state in life, if you have...
  • ever felt abandoned, lonely, lost and/or confused about who you are, or you simply want direction on how to live a more love-filled life, this video will likely provide you with profound insight about yourself and the Church's love for you.

We, all of us, are love by God. He made us and wants the best for us. We, each one of us, is God's child in need of His grace. The video exposes the inadequacies of the negative extremes on either side of the issue of same-sex attraction while proposing the Church's third way, the way of love.

If you have 38 minutes to spare, and even if you do not, watch the video. Better yet, order a copy.

A word of advice?—Keep a tissue or hanky on hand. It is a beautiful, beautiful video that, because of the heroic struggles of the people giving their testimonies, deserves attention.

  1. You're post is so beautiful and inspiring. You mentioned in an earlier post about being a convert. What was your turning point? When did you turn to the catholic faith and to god?


"A multitude of wise men is the salvation of the world(.)—Wisdom 6:24. Readers are welcome to make rational and responsible comments. Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged. If deemed completely stupid, such a comment will most assuredly not see the light of day. Them's the rules. Don't like 'em? Move on.
