James Martin SJ, consultant to the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communications, spoke with Pat Coyle of Irish Jesuit Communications about his book signing after his LGBT talk at the World Meeting of Families Pastoral Congress at the RDS in Dublin on 23 August, 2018. His book ‘Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity’ calls for reconciliation between the Church’s leadership and LGBT community and for more compassionate dialogue on this issue. Fr Martin, who engaged with pilgrims for a number of hours, sees book signing as a ministry in its own right. Click on the podcast link to listen.
