Mychals Prayer said...

The Pope will be greeted by protestors in New York when he visits Ground Zero, where the first official casualty of the 9/11 attacks was Father Mychal Judge, the openly gay FDNY chaplain known as “the Saint of 9/11”.

Mychal, whom many considered a living saint even prior to his heroic death, often asked, “Is there so much love in the world that we can afford to discriminate against any kind of love ?!”

We have no illusions that this pope is going to change. Rather, we are bearing witness to two truths -- that God created and loves gay people, and that the pope does not speak for the whole Church, the Ecclesia, all the people of God.

These truths are being increasingly embraced by Catholics in-the-pews. Fully two-thirds of U.S. Catholics reject the pope’s views on gays and support either civil unions or full marriage rights, according to numerous surveys.

Like Fr. Mychal also said, "Don't let the (institutional) church get in the way of your relationship with God."
