So a few days ago I posted about that gripping film “Boy Erased” which caused a bit or a reaction and a bit of an over-reaction from some.
At times when people are hit with the truth they snap and snap they did and snap at me. It’s not for nothing that in almost every language there is a phrase that says “the truth hurts”.
Anyway today the opposite happened and I got such a beautiful comment that it’s worth sharing to the whole world.
“Hi Michael, I just watched Boy Erased. Thank you so much for recommending it. It was one of the most powerful films I have ever seen. I think everybody should watch it. I will be recommending it to my friends. God bless…”
How wonderful and how truly rewarding when this type of feedback comes along and how truly humble and inspiring when people of prayer think for themselves rather than parotting off an outdated catechism.
Just as negativity and a sharp tongue can bring death, humility and openness to the Holy Spirit brings life and restoration.
And so with humour this week I say it has gone from “Boy Erased” to “Blog Erased” to “Boy Restored”!!
Please continue to pray for our ministry and witness which meets much criticism, hatred and rejection as we faithfully folle Jesus on this journey of LGBT, spirituality and Catholicism.
We pray for open hearts and minds to the voice of truth and the suffering of the broken who are wonderful children of God, LGBT and all!
