Saint John Paul II once said about Courage International, “Courage is doing the work of God.” Courage International strives to go forward, proclaiming the beauty and hope found in our Church’s teachings. It proclaims that chastity is not only possible, but can make our lives more meaningful, peaceful, and joy-filled once it is embraced and maintained. I have experienced it personally, and have seen the fruits of this in many Courage members. Now that I am back in the United States and reflecting on our beautiful grace-filled experience with Pope Francis on St. Peter’s Square, I see this as a personal confirmation that Courage International is most assuredly “doing the work of God.”

Although Enright is a devout Christian, this model is essentially psychological - and philosophical - rather than religious or spiritual. The Enright model recognizes the religious mandate that to flourish spiritually, persons need to give - or request and receive - forgiveness when appropriate. In the service of this need, the model encourages those trying to forgive or be forgiven to use whatever spiritual and religious inspiration and resources are personally meaningful. But the model offers guidance for how anyone- whether their primary motivation is religious, moral or psychological - may cooperate with the fundamental, universally human, psychological process of forgiveness.

However, the book is reader-friendly and can also serve as an indispensable guide for clergy, lay counselors, mentors, friends and especially family members of women with same-sex attraction. And lastly, but perhaps most importantly, this book is dedicated to and for the women who are looking for greater understanding into their lives. The Heart of Female Same-Sex Attraction has gained international recognition and is being translated around the world.

Examining research from the biological, psychological, and social sciences, this report shows that some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence. The report has a special focus on the higher rates of mental health problems among LGBT populations, and it questions the scientific basis of trends in the treatment of children who do not identify with their biological sex. More effort is called for to provide these people with the understanding, care, and support they need to lead healthy, flourishing lives.
