Sr. Jeannine Gramick is scheduled to lecture at Catholic Fairfield University about The Care of Souls: Sexual Diversity, Celibacy, and Ministry. She is co-founder of New Ways Ministry and was permanently forbidden by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from doing any ministry work involving homosexuality.
So this lecture at Fairfield is a direct disobedience to a formal directive from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Shocking: Sr. Gramick blasphemed the holy friendship between Our Lord and Saint John saying it was “for lesbian and gay people a hope for a blessing for same-sex relationships…”
This statement is such a grave abomination and such a terrible blasphemy against Our Lord Jesus Christ and Saint John that I am speechless. I am appalled and I am sure that you are too.
Moreover, that Sr. Gramick, who is forbidden to be involved in any pastoral work with homosexuals, is publicly invited to lecture to Catholic students at an officially Catholic University defies understanding.
As lay Catholics, we must offer our most fervent act of reparation to Our Lord Jesus Christ for this sin.
We must publicly voice our peaceful yet powerful outrage over this insult by telling Fairfield University that
THIS IS WRONG!
Finally, to make matters even worse, this lecture is part of a new effort to change Catholic moral teaching by a group of dissident “Catholic” activists and students who plan to gather this Fall for a four-part lecture series themed:
“More than a monologue: Sexual diversity and the Catholic Church.”
They will deny and contradict basic Catholic moral values. If nothing is done to oppose this sinful lecture series, many young souls will be scandalized.
That’s why we pray you join this act of reparation and peaceful protest immediately.
Shocking public attempt to change Catholic morals at Catholic Universities
