America Jesuit Review, Michael J. O’Loughlin: “I’m tremendously grateful for this invitation,” Says Martin, “not so much for what it says about my own ministry or writing but what it says to L.G.B.T. Catholics, a group of people who have for so long felt excluded,” he added. “I hope they see this invitation, which had to be approved by the Vatican, as an unmistakable sign of welcome from the church.” Report is here.
