Some French bishops are “discreetly” rewriting the Catholic Church’s doctrine about homosexuality, according to a recent report by the daily newspaper La Croix, which refers to an internal movement within the local Church that wants to make “more audible” the way this topic is addressed. 

The March 3 La Croix article states that the initiative stems from the French bishops’ ad limina visit to Rome in September 2021, during which some of them questioned the then-president of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Luis Ladaria, and subsequently Pope Francis himself, about paragraphs in the Catechism of the Church that were deemed offensive by homosexual advocacy groups in the Church. 

These revelations were made to the Catholic newspaper by Archbishop Hervé Giraud of Sens-Auxerre after a Feb. 28 meeting with members of Reconnaissance, an association of Catholic parents of homosexuals. 

In March 2021, a few months before the ad limina visit, the members of Reconnaissance appealed to the bishops of France to question them about the “consideration of the dignity of their children” by the doctrine of the Catholic Church. They particularly objected to the paragraph of the Catechism that describes homosexual acts as “intrinsically disordered” (2357).
