    ...homosexual lifestyle?

    From a reader in a comment…

    QUAERITUR:

    When “going to the periphery” crosses the line is when the exception becomes the rule of law. What about COURAGE ministry, isn’t this a slap in the face of those trying to enact 12 step program to leave homosexual lifestyle?

    Yes, it is a slap in the face.

    It is a slap in the face of every faithful Catholic priest who has tried to preach about human sexuality with both compassion and truth.

    It is a slap in the face of every faithful Catholic struggling with same-sex attraction and striving to live a continent life.

    It is a slap in the face of every faithful Catholic politician who has worked to defend or pass laws that uphold the natural law.

    It is a slap of every Roman Pontiff who has taught about this difficult topic with charity and clarity.

    It is a slap in the face of the human writers of every verse of Sacred Scripture which reveals the mind of the Creator about human sexuality.

    It is a slap in the incorporeal faces of the Holy Angels who are horrified when certain acts are committed.

    It is a slap in the face of St. Joseph, Pillar of Families.

    It is a slap in the face of the Blessed Virgin, Mother Most Chaste.

    It is a slap in the face of the Lord who said, “Go and sin no more!”

    It is a slap in the face of the Trinity, which models the relationships of God’s created images.

    Yes, it is a slap in the face.

    What we are witnessing in the consternation and open resistance of many Catholics to the recent world-conforming statements is the sensus fidei fidelium, “the faithful’s sense of the Faith”.

    Sensus fidelium is the deeply rooted resonance of the faithful with the Truth as taught by the Church and which reverberates in us as images of God.

    Sensus fidelium is not the whim of a majority.

    The sine qua non of sensus fidei fidelium is that one has to be faithful to have it.

    And “faithful” means faithful to the Tradition as interpreted by the authentic Magisterium.

    Yes, it is a slap in the face.
