Father Michael Schmitz addresses the teachings of the Catholic Church on the issue of same-sex attraction. With compassion and clarity, he shows that the Church’s teachings are rooted in the yearnings for authentic love that are shared by all who are made in the image and likeness of God. With his trademark fresh and engaging style, Fr. Schmitz addresses:
• Different types of love
• The nature of the human being and human sexuality
• Disordered attractions
• Identity and sexuality
• Jesus’s teachings on marriage
• Popular misconceptions about the teachings of the Church and same-sex attraction
• God’s all-encompassing love
Above all, Made for Love is about genuine love: how we can truly love each other, how the Bible teaches us to love, and how God is not simply loving, but love itself.
