15Feb German bishop says Catholic Church must change its stance on homosexuality

The Catholic Church should adopt a new pastoral approach to homosexual couples by accompanying them and blessing what is good in their lives, according to Bishop Peter Kohlgraf of Mainz.

In his weekly column in the diocesan paper Glaube und Leben, the 53-year-old bishop explained how he came to be convinced that the Church must change its stance on homosexuality.

He said that after becoming a bishop in 2017, he was soon made aware that many different forms of blessings for homosexual couples already existed and would continue to exist.
