Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput recently responded to one of the Equally Blessed pilgrims who will attend the World Meeting of Families this September in Philadelphia, along with almost two dozen others who want to make sure that LGBT families and voices are heard.

Susanne’s original letter appears below, followed by Archbishop Caput’s letter.

All week there was a cold, northerly breeze blowing, which would have been more at home in the month of January.
