    I read this excellent little book and am really surprised at the furor and backlash. I'm not naive about the extent to which the most traditionalist Catholics and other Christians can get worked up about LGBT issues. But, honestly, I think they are ranting about something that isn't there. (Not to mention making personal attacks against Father Martin.)

    This is a book that has generated quite a bit of controversy, so I decided to do my own due diligence. It is a short, edifying read.

    The book is divided into 3 sections, the Bridge section, the Meditation and Reflection section, and a short prayer section at the end.

    Fr. Martin’s approach is organized around the Catechism of the Catholic Church (Pt. 3, Sec. 2, Ch. 2, Article 6) paragraph No. 2358 in whic

    Full disclosure: I feel , as does my Diocese, that the book "Made For Love" by Fr. Schmitz is the superior choice on this subject. Fr. Martin is a bit too emotional and unlike Fr.

    The views expressed in this book are heretical! A warning to any faithful Catholics, this text conforms neither to Scripture nor Tradition!

    A Catholic teacher and spiritual writer of stature writes the shortest possible book, around 50 tiny pages plus an appendix of Scripture passages, about the largest and most problematic topic, love and all its echoes and continuations. The aim is a limited one and well conceived, there just has to be a way church ministers and gay people ca

    What a beautiful written text which allows you to feel that Jesus loves everyone? Some beautiful prayers and passages.
