PHILIPPINES - For Atanacio Jovi, it is possible to be gay and Catholic by "loving God above all" [AN]


In an article published on the website of the Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, Atanacio Jovi says he is gay but has “embraced chastity” because the Church invites to “true love,” which never lets one down, i.e. “love for God and God’s love for all”. Devoted to Our Lady Mediatrix of All-Grace, he lives his sexual orientation with serenity. “If I love someone, I want the best for that person. And this goes beyond physical union.”
