Experiencing Same-Sex Attraction  (15:49)     

Hey Father,  I am Catholic and also I am a gay man. I feel like I agree with most teachings of the church, but this issue is insurmountable for me. I want to fall in love and truly believe that I can have a healthy sexual relationship with a man. Why can’t I have this? Also, why does the church insist on using the term “same sex attraction” as opposed to “gay” and “homosexual”?

Chastity Resources and Holy Friendships (27:33)

Hi Fr. Josh,

As a faithful Catholic who is struggles with same-sex attraction, do you recommend any books, resources, or Scripture passages that will help me become more convicted of the Church’s teaching on same-sex attraction? Also, what are practical ways for me to live out chastity in my daily life and have healthy same-sex friendships?
