From a Catholic Perspective

In the past year I’ve noticed more and more individuals sharing their stories of stepping away from same-sex attraction. Some of them have gone on into heterosexual relationships, others into living chastely. One film that gives a portrait of three individuals has come back to mind over and again. The stories they share are honest and riveting. The film is called, “Desire of the Everlasting Hills.”

It’s 60 min. long, and all three people share a Catholic perspective. Although I was raised in NJ, where there was a heavy Catholic influence, I don’t know all that much about the Catholic side of Christianity. The stories of these individuals gave me a better understanding of what their branch of our faith is like on a deep level, and I appreciated aspects in a way that I’d never done before. (Particularly their practice of going to confession.)

Here is a review of the film by Thomas McDonald, published in the National Catholic Register, July 23rd, 2014: http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news/review-desire-of-the-everlasting-hills/

I’d like to hear your thoughts on the film if you do watch it. What resonates with you?
