Celebrating Pride Month 2022


“St. Irenaeus once said, ‘The glory of God is man fully alive[.]’ While the modern notion of Pride was not at the forefront of his mind when he wrote these words, the concepts of authenticity, freedom, justice, liberation, and love were certainly concepts that he understood. Pride means living authentically. Being able to walk down the streets and boldly declare that above all else, who I am, how I love is beautiful; and, thanks to our many queer and trans forbearers, such as Harvey Milk, Marsha P. Johnson, and Edith Windsor, we now have the privilege of living Pride ‘fully alive.’”
