“1. Pray

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – Thess. 5:16-18

Start every morning with a prayer of thanksgiving to God for the gift of your Son. Ask God to keep him safe from harm. Throughout the day, even if they seem insignificant, offer up little prayers, hardships and sacrifices to the Lord for your son’s protection. Remain joyful in everything you do. Many young men who identify as “gay,” in general, retain very negative perceptions of their fathers as well as Christianity, particularly Catholicism; in addition, these two forces are often seen as either incredibly harsh and condemning or all-accepting and tolerant. Therefore, the religious man can only be one of two things: an ally or an enemy. You must be neither, but a father. In this regard, you must pray for determination, empathy and prudence. This is sometimes a difficult balancing act that requires humility through supplication to God’s will; Bishop Athanasius Schneider stated this very well, when he said: “Genuine understanding and compassion” for a person’s true good certainly does not result “from concealing or weakening moral truth.”

“By my late-teens, I didn’t care what any one thought of me; including my father. As my attitude changed, so did my appearance. I was simultaneously trying to shock, gain attention, and test the loyalty of those closest to me. Not surprisingly, my father wasn’t pleased. His continued distance and silence signaled to me what I wanted to know. However, I pushed a little further. Finally, my father had to speak-up and he said what needed to be said. Of course, I didn’t take it well; even objective criticism, with my best interest at heart, I regarded as a personal attack. It was inevitable. Because this battle was never just about me; and it wasn’t about a scared kid against a homophobic world in the age of AIDS; and it wasn’t about finding myself in the arms of another man; it was always about me and my father. When I would curse him, I subconsciously believed that he was the one who sent me into every gay bar, bathhouse and sex dungeon. I wasn’t ashamed of who I was or what I did, but I hated him for it. Maybe he wasn’t the father I wanted – or needed; maybe he didn’t give me the attention I wanted – or needed. But when all seemed lost, when it mattered most – he did the right thing. Looking back, it’s the ultimate irony that through his prayers – I was saved.”

“The Texas couple has neither federal nor state law on its side. Catholic non-profits such as Catholic Charities can receive public funds distributed to the bishops’ conference and go about their business—in this case running a foster care program—without crossing state and church lines, provided they do not engage in “intrinsically religious” activities, e.g. religious worship. Last year, Texas passed a religious liberty law that safeguards the right of agencies like Catholic Charities to turn away LGBT couples or prospective parents.

It is important to note that Catholic Charities Fort Worth expressly said, contrary to what was reported, that it does not refuse children in its foster care program who identify as LGBT. But it does matter who the foster parents are.”

CARDINAL JOHN HENRY NEWMAN

One of the most beautiful prayers I’ve ever heard, from Cardinal John Henry Newman. Bishop Conley started his talk with it.

“God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments. Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.”

s-l1000“It is also necessary to note that at that time the abuse was limited to a few European countries, so much so that it was not yet started in the United States and Latin America. Pope Paul VI then promulgated, May 28, 1969, the document ‘MEMORIALE DOMINI’ (http://www.ewtn.com/library/curia/cdwmemor.htm) in which he stated verbatim: ‘The bishops of the world are unanimously opposed to Communion in the hand. It must be observed this way of distributing Communion, that the priest must put the Host on the tongue of the communicants. Communion on the tongue does not take away dignity in any way from those who receive Holy Communion. Every innovation can lead to irreverence and profanation of the Eucharist, as well as gradually corroding the correct doctrine ‘. The document also stated: ‘The Supreme Pontiff judged that the traditional and ancient way of administering Communion to the faithful must not be changed. The Apostolic See therefore strongly urges bishops, priests and the people to observe zealously this law’.”
