A Catholic pastoral approach to gay men and women

by | Aug 8, 2022 | Videos

Paul and Dominic walk through what the Catechism says about homosexuality in order explain what the Church teaches, what the church does not teach, and how Catholics need to live up to what our own faith calls us to.

“The centrality of the kerygma calls for stressing those elements which are most needed today: it has to express God’s saving love which precedes any moral and religious obligation on our part; it should not impose the truth but appeal to freedom; it should be marked by joy, encouragement, liveliness and a harmonious balance which will not reduce preaching to a few doctrines which are at times more philosophical than evangelical. All this demands on the part of the evangelizer certain attitudes which foster openness to the message: approachability, readiness for dialogue, patience, a warmth and welcome which is non-judgmental.” (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium)

ABOUT POPE FRANCIS GENERATION – Season 1: Episode 11
Pope Francis Generation is the show for Catholics struggling with the Church’s teaching, who feel like they might not belong in the Church anymore, and who still hunger for a God of love and goodness. Hosted by Paul Fahey, a professional catechist, and Dominic de Souza, someone who needs catechesis. Together, we’re taking our own look at the Catholic Church– her teachings and practices- from 3 views that changed our world: the Kerygma, the forgotten doctrine of theosis, and the teachings of Pope Francis. Together, with you, we’re the Pope Francis Generation.

ABOUT FEMCATHOLIC
Feminism is no longer just a movement, it’s the undertone of secular society. In order to reach people we actually must translate the gospel into a kind of “feminist dialect,” which requires truly encountering and understanding the issues women are facing and the solutions they are currently seeking.
