Gay man: Pope Francis told me 'God loves you like this'

In his meeting with Francis on a Sunday at his Santa Marta residence, Mr. Cruz said he had told the pope that he was anxious he would think less of him. "You have to be happy with who you are", Cruz reportedly told El País, a Spanish newspaper.

These "Pope Francis gay comments" are a significant departure from the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. It marked the first time a reigning pope had visited the Holy Land, but at the time the Vatican did not recognize Israel as a state, and Paul did not pronounce the word "Israel".

Pope Francis voiced alarm Monday at the "hemorrhaging" of nuns and priests in Italy and Europe, saying God only knows how many seminaries, monasteries, convents and churches will close because fewer people are being called to lives of religious service. The pope loves you like this.

The Vatican declined to confirm or deny the remarks in keeping with its policy not to comment on the pope's private conversations.

In 2013, Francis famously remarked, "If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with goodwill, who am I to judge?" when pressed for his views on homosexuality.

Cruz said Francis had also told him: "God made you this way and loves you this way, and it doesn't matter to me".

He said this image of a mother with her children "on this pilgrim journey" is important for the Church today, especially as the pope is calling Catholics to a new evangelization and to unleash the Gospel message. The Catholic Church teaches that people with homosexual tendencies "must be accepted with respect, compassion and sensitivity".

Mary's motherhood is emphasized throughout the Gospels, from the Annunciation to the foot of the cross, he said, explaining that the fathers of the Church realized this attention to motherhood is not just applied to Mary, but can be applied to the entire Church.

What does traditional Christian teaching say about homosexuality?

Not to say that it's all the same, but in each case, welcome, accompany, study, discern and integrate. The Church's position has been that people with same-sex attraction were made that way.it is not a choice.
