From the Editor
In this edition we feature the testimonials and commentary of people who are walking with those whose life circumstances and choices make it difficult for them to feel that they belong in the Catholic family.
Many same-sex attracted or gender questioning Catholics, for example, feel rejected by the Church rather than loved. The same is true for those who have a sexual addiction, had an abortion, or a child or grandchild born out of wedlock.
Pope Francis has asked Catholics to accompany people who are wounded in their family life, sexuality or marriage. He calls on all of us to extend the hand of mercy to each other, encouraging one another to draw close to God in our difficulties. Read on for some inspiring insights.
