Courage Reparation

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Feb 01, 2012

A visitor to CatholicCulture.org in London, George Day, recently came across my 2010 In Depth Analysis, Homosexuality: A Special Call to the Love of God and Man. Reading it put him in mind of the reparation groups organized around Courage's program to help those with same-sex attraction to live chastely. He kindly sent us information.

Courage Reparational Groups were begun in 1992 in Staten Island, New York, and spread from there. Recently they've gone online, under the patronage of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Here is a key passage from their self-description:

In line with our CRG Mission Statement, we adhere to a Theology of Weakness: after the example of Our Blessed Mother, it is through the laying of our difficulties at the foot of the Cross, and by offering our homo-emotional struggles in union with the Passion of Christ, that from our sinful tendencies we are transformed into beams of light, hope and holiness for those who are still lost and confused in the disordered passions of the homosexual life style.

You'll find Courage Reparation Online (CRO) at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CourageReparationOnline/.
