The Gift of the Priestly Vocation
Grace on the Margins: In a new interview, Francis reasserts the criteria for banning gay men from seminaries. No matter how you interpret his words, they harm and denigrate LGBTQ Catholics.
In the five years since his election, Francis has implemented in the church a dynamic, well-considered transformation process, based on the principles of the Second Vatican Council.
The Field Hospital: The Association of U.S. Catholic Priests criticizes treatment of homosexual persons in the Congregation for Clergy's recent document "The Gift of the Priestly Vocation."
Viewpoint: The problem with the Vatican document "The Gift of the Priestly Vocation" is that the language about homosexuality is not nuanced, but sloppy, and thus, dangerous.
