Today on the Feast of Divine Mercy, we have received many gifts in the church. The first being a reminder of Christ’s love and mercy, the second being two new saints: John Paul II and John XXIII, and the third, coincidentally titled similarly is The Third Way. Fr. John Hollowell, a priest from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis has been working on producing this video with Blackstone Films, in an effort to show the world what the Catholic Church really teaches about homosexuality. 

“The Catholic Church opens her arms in welcome to all…Come to the waters of salvation…those who have same sex attraction belong in the Catholic church…we will listen to you…we will support you…we will love you for who you are…”

People always think that the Catholic church rejects those who have same sex attraction, but that is quite the contrary! Watch this beautiful video to see what the church truly teaches on homosexuality. Please share!!

It really challenges all of us who are involved with ministry to treat all in and outside the church with welcoming and loving arms. How can you change the way you encounter others and bring them Christ’s love and mercy?

Happy Feast of the Divine Mercy!!
