Dignity USA Latest News

December 7, 2022 | by Darby DeJarnette | Gaudete Sunday implores us to “rejoice!” But what if you are in a place where rejoicing is impossible? How do we trust God’s message when we can’t hear God’s voice? This week’s reflection examines the story of John the Baptist in prison to draw forth a possible answer to these questions. It encourages us to feel however we need during this holiday season – because Love is with us wherever we are and however we feel.
We are pleased to present you with this synthesis of the synodal listening process undertaken by the members of DignityUSA. This report was submitted to the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops in August 2022.
November 30, 2022 | by delfín bautista | Waiting can be the worst! When one is young, waiting for Christmas can feel like an eternity. As people working, and waiting, for God’s Reign – the delay can give way to despair. But Advent, and today’s reflection, challenge us to hold out hope not only for a better world but for a better us, and not only for a future Reign of Love but that Love may reign in our hearts in this very moment.
November 23, 2022 | by John Falcone | The new liturgical year often seems to come amid a crush of things to do: Thanksgiving preparations, Christmas plans, end-of-year parties, and so much more. The readings of the first week of Advent this year invite us to listen for Love’s voice in the midst of this cacophony and allow this Word spoken into our world and into our hearts to call us to change. Not so much a New Year’s resolution, as a renewed commitment to reckoning with the implications of God’s Love – for us and for our world.
November 22, 2022 | by DignityUSA | In light of this weekend’s attack at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colorado, that killed five children of God, injured at least eighteen, and left countless people across the country traumatized, we are calling on you to speak out strongly against this attack, to explicitly condemn violence against LGBTQ+ people, and to take other steps to help end the horrific violence being inflicted on the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized communities in our country.
