While I cannot attend the WMF in Philadelphia, I will be praying for those in attendance from Fortunate Families, as well as other LGBTQ Catholic ministry groups. My hope is that their presence will be so powerful that the Holy Spirit will move the heirarchy of the Church to change their stance, and produce a statement that welcomes all people, including those who identify as LGBTQ, FULLY to the table of the Lord. As I stated at the close of my article for the newsletter, I really do wish blessings upon those attending the WMF in Philadelphia.
I am happy and proud that Fortunate Families will be in Philadelphia for the World Meeting of Family. Our LGBT children need to know that there are more Catholics who accept them and want them to feel welcome in their community than those who do not. Unfortunately, I will not be attending. My love and prayers go with those who will be there. I put together 1000 rainbow pins to help you to reach those who need to know they are not alone; they are loved and cherished by us as well as their Creator God. God bless you!
