  1. Thank you for your work on this important issue, Fr. Martin. Too many Catholics are slamming the doors of the Church in the face of our LGBT brothers and sisters, effectively turning the Church into an insular club of hypocrites who view themselves as perfect. We’re all in need of God’s mercy, from Pope Francis to Cardinal Sarah, from Fr. Martin to our parish priest, and from the average parishioner to people in LGBT community who are seeking God. Love one another, everyone, as God loves you!
