Dignity USA Latest News

September 27, 2023 | by John P. Falcone | It is tempting to hear the Christian call to humility or meekness as an excuse to excuse injustice. But today’s reflection reminds us that in the Christian worldview humble and assertive coexist. In fact, if we are to take Jesus as our model, authentic humility always comes with a dash of “uppity.”
September 20, 2023 | by Richard Young | It can be difficult and frustrating to understand what Jesus’ parables mean for us. How can a given story apply to my life right now? Today’s reflection invites us to hear Jesus’s parable of the generous employer as sign of the generosity and equality which God offers to everyone¾and which we are called to offer to one another.
September 13, 2023 | by Ann Marie Szpakowska | Often, we think of repentance as a precursor to being forgiven. We repent of our sins and God forgives us. However, today’s reflection broadens this scope, instead suggesting that we must also repent if we hope to forgive others.
September 11. 2023 | by DignityUSA | New policies on sexuality and gender identity impacting all parishes and schools in the Diocese of Cleveland are of great concern to leaders of Dignity Northeast Ohio and DignityUSA. The organizations minister to LGBTQ+ Catholics, their families, and allies.
September 6, 2023 | by delfín bautista | We’ve heard the directive, “To love our neighbors as ourselves,” so often it can feel like a cliché. Today’s reflection asks what we are to do with such a sentiment when Church and society have advocated so strongly that we not love who we are.
