Several months ago my husband (The Dean) and I went to a work conference where one of the speakers was a priest from Courage - a group that ministers to those with same sex attractions. He showed us this movie - Desire of the Everlasting Hills - a documentary about three Catholics coming to grips with God, faith and homosexuality. Needless to say this movie moved me, deeply. It's less about sexuality and and more about authentic conversion to Christ in the Catholic Church. It's about an hour long, but worth every minute because it clearly illustrates the fact that we are all restless until we rest in God - that we're all seeking him every minute even when we don't even know we are doing so. We're all in the same boat as these three courageous individuals who are sharing their stories - regardless of what we struggle with. Take a look. You won't be sad you did.
