In a statement, Ned McGrath, communications director of the archdiocese said,The Archdiocese of Detroit says it canceled planned honors for a nun at a suburban church because her gay outreach mission is incompatible with Roman Catholic beliefs.Sister Jeannine Gramick, 62, was to have been honored Sunday at St. Mary Parish in Royal Oak following a screening of a documentary film highlighting her work.
Once the diocese learned of the reception, it determined that “one of its parish facilities is not the appropriate setting for a gathering not in accord with the mission and message of the Church.”
The mission and message of the Church ... hmmmm, let me see there's -
"The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.'" [Mat. 25:40 NASB]"I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you." [Luke 6:27, 28 NASB]"For such is the will of God that by doing right you may silence the ignorance of foolish men." [1 Pet. 2:15 NASB]"The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." [Luke 19:10 NASB]
Hmmmm? Seems Sister Gramick knows more about the mission and message of the Church than the Archdiocese.
