The Pope says God makes some people gay. Now get over it.

The Pope Told A Gay Man That 'God Loves You Like This,' Making Him The Most Accepting Catholic Leader To Date

The decree said the pope approved the celebration because he thought it might "encourage the growth of the maternal sense of the Church in the pastors, religious and faithful, as well as a growth of genuine Marian piety".

"He told me, 'Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter, '" Cruz said.

Lamb said that the Pope's remarks to Cruz go "beyond 'who am I to judge?' to 'you are loved by God'". "I believe that the church not only should apologize to the person who is gay whom it has offended, but has to apologize to the poor, to exploited women, to children exploited for labor", he said back in 2016.

But his latest remark, if accurate, would mark an historic shift in attitudes towards homosexuality within the Catholic church. The Catechism of the Catholic Church, a collection of official teachings, states that gay and lesbian people should "be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity", but considers acting on same-sex desires to be sinful. He discussed his sexuality and being abused by a Chilean priest.

Martin's book is being published this week in Italian, with a preface by the Francis-appointed bishop of Bologna, Monsignor Matteo Zuppi, a sign that the message of acceptance is being embraced even in traditionally conservative Italy.

Winds along parts of Northeast reached up to 150 miles per hour knocking down power poles and many trees, CNN forecasters said. Connecticut State Police also confirmed that someone in New Fairfield was killed after a tree landed on their vehicle .

Chilean victims of abuse welcomed news the bishops were ready to stand down but insisted the Vatican should take further, punitive action against the bishops. Without this dimension, it sadly becomes a church of old bachelors, who live in this isolation, incapable of love, incapable of fecundity. Rather than address the problems around sexual abuse within their churches, they hid it. Homophobia trumped logic and ruined the lives of thousands because of views of masculinity, and gay priests doing in the dark what they were being denied in the light.

"We are called to love each other", One parishioner said. The entire episcopate in Chile resigned after being rebuked by Francis, an unprecedented act.

Altogether, 31 active bishops and three retired bishops said they would place the issue "in the hands of the Holy Father so that he might freely decide for each one of us".

Mr Cruz spoke of his happiness after receiving a personal apology from Pope Francis for the abuse that he suffered.

But days after returning to Rome, the pope, citing new information, sent sexual abuse investigator Archbishop Charles Scicluna of Malta to Chile to speak to victims, witnesses and other church members.
