I was unable to attend the annual Courage conference, held this year at Villanova in Pennsylvania. I am the diocesan consultant for the Courage apostolate for the Diocese of Winona, and along with three priests from the diocese we are establishing both a Courage and EnCourage chapter here locally.
I would like to alert you to an hour long movie that recounts the lives of three individuals, a woman and two men, who are brave enough to come forth publicly and share what living with same-sex attraction has been like for them, and their stories of faith and religion. I have heard each of these individuals speak. What they share says more than anything else I have ever heard from the media about the value of the human person, and the experience of same-sex attractions.
