“Your thoughts on this.

Fr. Gerald Murray – Well, Raymond, what you said earlier is now extending to a third topic, with divorce and remarriage, contraception and now homosexual activity. He wants us to bless sodomy. He wants the Catholic Church to say to two people who are sodomizing each other, you’re doing something that is pleasing in the sight of God and we want God to bless, we want God to favor this type of activity. This is quite simply a statement of fact – this is a total rejection of Catholic doctrine on the immorality of homosexual activity. For this Bishop to say that is a major scandal. He should repent of it and turn away from it, because he is leading people into sin.

I do work with Courage from time to time, which is the apostolate that helps Catholics with same-sex attraction live virtuous lives. When they wake up and turn on their computer in the morning and read this kind of news – its an insult to them. Its an insult to them, to say: oh, yeah look, the bad behavior that we told you to stop, well, it’s pretty good according to the German Bishop. Ordinary people should not be subjected to bishops contradicting Catholic teaching. This is, if I seem angry because I am, this is infuriating. A shepherd is sent out to lead the sheep to the pure water of Catholic truth. And this man is saying immoral activity should be blessed. He needs to repent of that teaching.

On a personal note – What Fr. Murray so explicitly and honestly expressed here is the truth. Its uncomfortable and unpleasant for some to hear, but it must be said…by someone.”

“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.”

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  As of this writing I have not read Joe’s book. That’s on my list. We all of us who know Joseph all follow him on Facebook, his website and You Tube.  We invite everyone to come and meet him.  He like others, there are a few have left the lifestyle for Christ and a better life.

“Here a small bio about Joseph Sciambra, a Catholic Missionary whose recent life has been dedicated to helping individuals who struggle with Same-Sex Attraction.  In 1999, following a near death experience, Joseph transitioned from a thoroughly confused, conflicted and insecure person into a believer in the healing power of Jesus Christ and a messenger for the Catholic Church.

After his near death experience, he began writing extensively concerning his time earning a livelihood through becoming a gay porn actor and being an escort, as well as the real-life issues of pornography, homosexuality, and the occult.

His latest book, Swallowed by Satan, is available in Kindle format from amazon for $4.95 at https://www.amazon.com/Swallowed-Satan-Christ-Pornography-Homosexuality/dp/193926815X

“Though for the purposes of this essay, I would like to first examine the film that probably got the whole genre started in 1959. The film is “Gidget,” staring Sandra Dee in the most glycemic shock role of her career. Unlike the beach films of the later 1960s, “Gidget” was released by a major studio (Colombia Pictures) as a vehicle for one of it’s newest stars. The film also featured Cliff Robertson who had already given a great performance in the dramatic movie version of William Inge’s play “Picnic.” Gidget was not an exploitation film, but it did appeal to teenagers who were the film’s target audience. As in most of her movies, Sandra Dee plays a relatively naive and sheltered middle-class girl on the verge of womanhood. In “Gidget,” she falls in love with a surfer (Moon-doggie) played by James Darren. Cliff Robertson’s character (the Big Kahuna) takes a liking to Gidget and allows her to hang around him and his group of surf-bum followers. One of the guys gets a bit too fresh with Gidget, but Moon-doggie comes to her rescue. The film’s most interesting line occurs after Gidget gets in an argument with her parents. Her father and mother want her date to pick her up at their house. But Gidget wants to meet him at a downtown cocktail lounge. Her father goes nuts. Gidget storms out of the house and her mother says (as we hear the sound of car tires peeling out of the driveway:) “she’s taking the car!” Later in the film, in another pivotal scene, Kahuna notices that Gidget is trying a bit to hard to attract Moon-doggie, so he arranges to scare her with a mock seduction encounter at his beach-shack. It works, and she flees with her innocence intact.”

“But especially for boys, we need our fathers; sons need their dads. As a wounded man, trying to escape the false reality of homosexuality, I needed the loving kindness of my mother, and I knew I always had it. I needed that as well from my Father, but in a different way. I needed his strength and protection. As I lay there dying – I needed him to pick me up. While my mother could offer consolation, only my father could save me.

And that is exactly what happened. When I had nothing else to live for – except death, the Lord took pity on me. Like I was a small boy again, someone literally picked me up off the side of the road. Was it Christ, Saint Joseph, or my father? All I know is that the man who effortlessly hoisted me over his shoulder was strong and silent; he carried me, not saying a word, to a place of healing and refuge. There I was tended with incredible kindness – by a mother and a father – by Our Lady and Saint Joseph – by my own parents. And, like our friends in heaven, they never accepted that I was “gay,” instead they stood back and watched with anguish and sorrow as I made one mistake after another; my mother cried, my father prayed. But now that I was spent and tired – they offered me a way home. Only, that required humility on my part, in a sense – to go limp and let someone pick you up. I had to admit that I couldn’t make it any other way. I had to admit that I needed help. That I could not walk back home on my own. The prodigal son must become a boy again.

“Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, he is the greater in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matt 18: 3-4)”

2017-10-20_Sciambra_Chapel_Miracle

“A family chapel was miraculously unaffected by the wildfires raging through Northern California, incinerating everything in its path.

On October 9,  Joseph Sciambra — a Catholic apologist — barely escaped the flames, which destroyed the belongings of thousands of people across three counties.

After surveying the damage it was discovered that the Sciambra family chapel remained completely untouched while every building around it was incinerated.”

BLOGGER’S NOTE:  PLEASE BE GENEROUS AS YOU CAN BE TO ALL THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR HOMES TO THE CALIFORNIA FIRES 2017.  PRAYERS TO THE FAMILIES WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONES. AMEN.
