Gay icon, and celibate Catholic!
And John Richardson [from “Warhol at Home” in Sacred Monsters, Sacred Masters (London: Pimlico, 2001), p. 247-8]:
“To believe the envious Truman Capote, Andy was a Sphinx without a secret. In fact, he did have a secret, one that the kept dark from all but his closest friends: he was exceedingly devout - so much so that he made daily visits to the church of Saint Vincent Ferrer on the Upper East Side of Manhattan… Although famously thrifty, he was also secretly charitable. Besides giving financial support, he often spent evenings working in a shelter for the homeless run by the Church of the Heavenly Rest. It was not soppy social consciousness or guilt that prompted Andy’s good works; it was atavism as personified by his adored and adoring mother, the pious Julia.”
I found this a very interesting and heartening article because it shows to the world that the Church can encompass all people, while on the other hand all people can live up to the Church’s teaching even though they contradict the world.
