There are senior clerics who wish to "accompany" active homosexuals by granting them full access to the sacraments including marriage. Now, bear with me while I try to figure something out. Since my wife and I separated ten years ago I have been living alone and it's a very lonesome journey and I often crave companionship. And yes, as I am still in my 50s,I struggle with my sexual tendencies. If I see a scantily clad woman I will succumb to lustful thoughts. However, I abstain from all sexual activity because I know that it is forbidden to receive the sacraments while living in a state of serious sin. Not only the churches law but Christs law. Believe me, it's not easy, but I do it out of love and need of the sacraments and abstention is necessary for my souls sake. Have I left anything out folks?
