Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community can enter into a relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity

Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community can enter into a relationship of Respect, Compassion and Sensitivity
This book is written by the Jesuit priest, James Martin, who has ministered to and worked with LGBT people, most of them Catholics. He has thus become acutely aware of the deep divide between this community and the church leadership. He insists that this chasm must be bridged if the work of the Gospel is to be accomplished.

James Martin, SJ, has been working informally with LGBT people in the church, seeking to build bridges between divided communities. His work led to his being awarded the Bridge Building Award by New Ways Ministry, a group that ministers to and advocates for LGBT Catholics. On receiving the award he gave a talk, which forms the basis of this book. He urges the Church to treat the LGBT community with respect, compassion and sensitivity and the LGBT to reciprocate and reflect on those virtures in its own relationship with the institutional church. This is not to minimise the pain that the LGBT community have experienced from the church but to offer the respect they long to receive towards others.
