This is from the Deacon’s Bench. I’m not sure how to deal with this although I have always taught, especially in Macon where a homosexual teacher in Macon’s private school was fired for his same sex “marriage”, that when it comes to Mass and the Sacrament of Penance, there is no one at the doors of the Church checking people’s sexual identity.
Mature Catholics know when they sin sexually and God gives them a conscience to pursue repentance and holiness.
Apart from using the term “fidelity” to all that the Church teaches in the areas of faith and morals, I have seldom preached on homosexuality or most sexual sins. I do that in a class setting where people can ask questions.
But this is what we all know. The question is how to make Catholics, young, old and in between know that we are to despise sin but love the sinner?
