“Do not wait for leaders. Do it alone, person-to-person.”

“We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”

“Speak tenderly to them. Let there be kindness in your face, in your eyes, in your smile, in the warmth of your greeting. Always have a cheerful smile. Don’t only give your care, but give your heart as well.”
~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

    Hi Joseph, do you think there's a way to live as a gay person and being healthy? I mean being in a monogamous relationship and not getting any disease, or is this impossible?Thankyou.

    Beautiful pictures of God's children.
    P.S. Awesome Doc Martins. Seeing them brought back many memories of my youth clubbing in Hollywood in the 80's. That was years ago and another person.

    Hi Joseph, blessings to you and the work that you do. Do you think that a person struggling with ssa should marry a person of the opposite sex (with full disclosure)? Do you believe that it is possible for everyone to be healed completely of ssa? Thank you so much.

    St. John Paul II once said: “…the Gospel speaks clearly. Christ not only took pity on the sick and healed many of them, restoring health to both their-bodies and their minds, his compassion also led him to identify with them. He declares: ‘I was sick and you visited me’ (Mt 25:36). The disciples of the Lord, precisely because they were able to see the image of the ‘suffering’ Christ in all people marked by sickness, opened their hearts to them, spending themselves in various forms of assistance.
    Well, Christ took all human suffering on himself, even mental illness. Yes even this affliction, which perhaps seems the most absurd and incomprehensible, configures the sick person to Christ and gives him a share in his redeeming passion.”
    Because homosexuality is a mental illness, and with all mental illnesses, because they can be treated and sometimes cured, there is always the possibility of a full recovery from homosexuality; personally I do not feel the call to marry anyone – I think that would have been the case even if I hadn’t at one time suffered with homosexuality; personally, I know men who are or were same-sex attracted and did marry; across the board, these men met and fell in love with extremely patient, humble, and giving women; they are blessed.
