August 26th.   Martin and Angela shared,  “We will soon come to the end of these sessions around sexuality as a family gift. I don’t know whether you have learned a lot of information, gained knowledge or gained wisdom and insight which is something different.   Relationships cannot be rationalised can they?  I know many cases where people argue about that. But then we also cannot build a relationship purely on feelings.” Andrew responded, “Love is pretty irrational.  I don’t know why I love Beauty so much, I even like to think I worship the ground she walks on and that is irrational to say the least.”  “Ah, love is about feelings but much more than that as we have discussed this month.”  Maureen reflected, “It is about acceptance, also of a different sexual orientation.  Why did God make my son that way?”  

The foolishness of God is wiser than men and the weakness of God is stronger than men.  1 Cor 1:25.    Pope Francis:   

We would like to reaffirm that every person, regardless of sexual orientation ought to be respected in his or her dignity, while every sign of unjust discrimination is to be carefully avoided.  Families should be given respectful pastoral guidance so that those who manifest a homosexual orientation can receive the assistance they need to understand and fully carry out God’s will.  AL250.  In order to make society more human, more worthy of the human person love in social life – political, economic and cultural – must be give renewed value, becoming the constant and highest norm for all activity.  LS231
