Father Viviano stands in truth and love against pro-LGBT message from Church hierarchy

“Most of all, know that God created you, God loves you and God is on your side.” Thus concludes a statement of support for LGBT youth, signed by 14 U.S. Catholic bishops to date, in which Church teaching on chastity and homosexuality is sparsely quoted. The bishops (including one cardinal) have referenced only one sentence of paragraphs 2357, 2358 and 2359 in the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “They [persons with homosexual tendencies] must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.” Missing are the remaining 14 sentences explaining that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered and, therefore, “Under no circumstances can they be approved.”

Father Anthony Viviano has something to say about all of this, just as he did here, when he called out pro-abortion “Catholics”, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. In his Pentecost Sunday homily, Father Viviano takes issue with the 14 bishops, as well as the many German priests who have begun blessing same-sex civil unions. Father exhorts us to place our trust in the divine teachings of the Church, blessed by the Holy Spirit”– i.e., the Catechism — and to “tune your ears into good, orthodox priests.” You can do that right here:

Homily begins at 27:30 and lasts about 12 minutes.
Please take a moment afterwards to pray an Ave Maria for Father Viviano!

  1. Fr. Viviano provided his flock such good sound teaching — very loving and unpretentious — directing them to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is founded on and FULL of scripture. This homily was not long and drawn out — it was brief, full of truth, love, and light. We sheep need to hear the voice of the good shepherds.

    John 10: 5: “And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.”
    John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: [28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”

    Thank you for sharing this Pentecost Mass.

  2. I look forward to reading this book and would very much like to be part of a discussion group about it. It is a scary thing to think of no salvation outside of the Catholic Church since so many ARE outside of The Church. It’s almost more than I can comprehend, and I wish what Bishop Barron told Ben Shapiro were true, but how can it be? How can we reconcile what Jesus himself said with what Bishop Barron says?. It is incongruous. Can both be true? No matter how much we might wish it were so, how can I pray to Jesus, asking for Him to help me, and then at the same time think what He says might not be true. We can’t follow someone we can’t trust or believe. Oh, dear, Jesus, I believe you, I trust you, and I love you. Please help us.
