Sometimes it’s what’s not said that carries the true meaning. Case in point: This article from a Boston newspaper for homosexuals from November 2002 profiling the new head of the Franciscan shrine in downtown Boston on Arch Street. The article has a disturbing quality in that not once does the friar, Fr. David Convertino, defend the Church’s teachings on homosexuality. All we hear about is openness, the Church’s “unfair” teachings, the “unfair” linking of the Scandal and gay priests, and “reaching out” to gays and lesbians. the underlying notion is that the reaching out won’t include a call to chastity and sexual integration and healing.
