On the day after the Orlando nightclub shooting, the author posted a video on Facebook in which he called for solidarity with our LGBT brothers and sisters. A powerful call for tolerance, acceptance, and support - and a reminder of Jesus' message for anyone to love one another - Father Martin's post went viral. Now, Martin expands on his reflections, offering a loving, and much-needed voice in a time marked by anger, prejudice, and divisiveness. Martin uses the image of a two-way bridge to enable LGBT Catholics and the Church to come together in a call to end the »us« versus »them« mentality. Turning to the Catechism, he draws on the three criteria at the heart of the Christian ministry - »respect, compassion, and sensitivity« - as a model for how the Catholic Church should relate to the LGBT community.
