Bridget Mary's Response:
I agree with Pope Francis that Jesus would meet with individuals who are Transgender today. I also support New Ways Ministry statement that education on gender identity should be a priority for church officials.
We must erase the boundaries between "them" and "us" in every situation and embrace our gender identity as sacred to create a more inclusive, compassionate Roman Catholic Church. The bible states that we are one in Christ, and our baptism make us spiritual equals. (Galations 3:28)Therefore, each person is God's beloved image. Bridget Mary Meehan ARCWP, www.arcwp.org
