A quick reminder, the only Vatican-approved, and essentially Catholic, apostolate for serving those suffering from same-sex attraction and their families – Courage – will be giving a talk at St. Joseph parish in Richardon on Thursday, Aug. 11 at 6:30 pm (buffet dinner – talk starts at 7:15). The speaker is Fr. Philip Bochanski, associate director of Courage International.
The title of the talk is “Welcoming and Accompanying Our Brothers and Sisters Who Experience Same Sex Attraction: Living Our Our Universal Call to Chastity and Speaking Truth in Love.”
The event will be held in the main dining hall. Enter the “Columbarium Entrance” that faces Spring Valley Road.
If you want to attend the dinner portion, reservations are required. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org. $7 for dinner and you may pay at the door.
I am so happy to see this event take place. After the recent scandal of the episcopal endorsement of the extremely problematic (and that is being kind) “Always Our Children” pro-gay lobby advocacy groups as the preferred “ministry” for those suffering from SSA in this diocese, as announced at a recent conclave of diocesan priests, it is absolutely vital to have the Church’s true message on these subjects presented in charity. That truth is simply part of the constant belief and practice of the Faith, going back to the earliest days of the Church, when St. Paul castigated the decadent, amoral behavior of so many in the collapsing Greco-Roman civilization around him.
Same sex attraction is disordered, but not necessarily sinful, while the acts associated with this inclination always and everywhere are gravely sinful. “Always Our Children” tries desperately to pretend this is not so, even to the point of throwing out from its group meetings those who advocate for the constant belief and practice of the Faith. “Always Our Children,” then, is in actuality an insurgent group inside the Church dedicated to the overthrow of Christ’s Truth and its replacement with the errors of the world, the flesh, and the devil. They aim, more or less, to turn the Church into a lightly religiously themed agent of the sexular pagan revolution. They must fail, of course, but the damage wrought on souls in the effort has been, and will continue to be, incalculable.
