Bishop Fulton Sheen’s Pithy Wisdom

Just like everyone else, he [St. Augustine] had to find a philosophy that justified how he lived.  You see, if we do not live as we think, we soon begin to think as we live.

  1. Just read your wonderful essay, “Why I do not call myself a gay Christian”. Love it! God bless you and may your witness be heard far and wide! I am a celibate, divorced woman of many years, also a “wounded healer”. “My grace is sufficient for you…” There is wisdom and power in embracing our particular cross with love, in surrendering to God in the mystery of our lives with their various sufferings. May that grace be shared by many more who are deceived by the spirit of our age. God’s grace be with you now and always.

    • Thanks for the encouraging words Carolyn! There is great joy in this path, but I think it requires a bit of a death too–but should that surprise us? A good friend of mine encourages me with the idea that yes, it’s a death to be obedient to God, and I would add a death to reject the label of “being gay,” but it’s like the death of a seed, which then brings forth great fruit and life.

      God bless you as well!

  2. Thanks for being a gift, Daniel. Just heard your talk on wine rot. Wow. You’re a terrific living ad for what the Catholic Church *can* — but seldom seems up to — offer persons with same-sex attraction. God bless you richly, brother. Keep up the great work.

  3. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would wantHaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
