Book groups are forming now to study Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity by James Martin, S.J. A great deal of national discussion is taking place regarding this book. In Building a Bridge, Fr. Martin issues a plea for Catholic leaders to relate to their LGBT flock in a new way, one characterized by compassion and openness. Father Martin turns to three virtues from the Catechism of the Catholic Church—”respect, compassion, and sensitivity”—as a model for how both the Catholic leadership and LGBT Catholics can move together on a “two-way bridge” toward reconciliation and love.
