I Remember – #826

I remember going to Christmas Eve Mass with my wife’s family – a task that was done entirely to keep the peace with my Catholic father-in-law, who appreciated the gesture more, perhaps, than he should – and being astonished to hear the priest preach tolerance and understanding of people in homosexual relationships.  He didn’t go quite so far as to say that homosexuality was ok, but certainly expressed the need for his congregation to accept differences in others and to love them for who they were.

One thought on “I Remember – #826

  1. I remember a very moving sermon by a priest on Good Friday, who said that instead of giving up chocolate, or smoking, or caffeine, maybe people could give up things like guilt. Unforgiveness. Discouragement. It was wonderful.
