In the world there are millions of Christians, some of them belong to the LGBT + community and despite the extremely negative discourse of the ecclesiastical hierarchy continue to live the message of Jesus Christ our Lord and entrust themselves daily to the Mother of God.
This is certainly not the place to argue about the positions of the church, its way of acting, superficiality and hypocrisy about the delicate issue LGBT +.
During the last few years, groups of LGBT + Christians have been formed in most Western countries, often open to all, "ecumenical" in the sense that the participants come from different Christian realities. Envelopes meet regularly, in some cases they have support from the local bishop.
They compare themselves on the Lectio Divina and bring their testimonies. All very extremely post-conciliar in purely Catholic terms. They seek a dialogue with the hierarchy and the results are mixed depending on the territory.
The icon of the Miracle of Montevergine of 1256 fits into the context of love between two boys. Needless to talk about LGBT + community considering the era. Going beyond the labels there have always been UCAU (men who love men) since the beginning of time in both the human race and the animal world with the difference that the human being has a conscience and a greater freedom of choice and awareness. The icon of the Miracle of Montevergine reminds all believers and especially the UCAUs of the infinite tenderness that the Mother of God has for all men. His power, his intercession, his humility, his meditation.
This icon invites us to meditate, to pray, to cultivate a deep and sincere bond with Our Lady, who better than anyone else knows the son of God.
The icon of the Miracle of Montevergine of 1256 is a constant invitation to prayer, our meeting place between earthly and heavenly realities, allowing ourselves to be taken by the wisdom and wisdom of the Mother of God in the heavenly mysteries.
