Truth, Authentic Love and Hope
Welcome to my website. I am a Catholic man who has found peace after finally embracing God's beautiful teachings on chastity through the Catholic Church. Prior to this, I identified as a gay man and I was miserable. I love what Chris Stefanick said in the film, The Third Way: Homosexuality and the Catholic Church, regarding chastity: "It's not about saying no to pleasure and no to herpes and no to hell. It's really about saying yes to one very important thing; yes to authentic love." Chastity is really beautiful and freeing. For me, it is growing in my relationship to Christ and imitating him.
This website is just beginning, so make sure you check back. As you will see, much of my writing and speaking has been on same-sex attractions from a Catholic perspective. However, I have also started a blog where I have begun to publish articles that aren't limited to just this topic but instead are uplifting and help us grow in our relationship to Christ. Thanks for stopping by. God bless you and come back soon.
