CWN Editor's Note: “Pope Francis continues to strongly support the teaching of the Church that marriage is between a man and a woman and is a permanent union,” said Archbishop Paul Etienne. “He has no problem making the necessary distinction between the two realities of civil unions and marriage ... Our Holy Father envisions a compassionate Church, one with a maternal heart, willing to overcome insecurity, fear, and a willingness to reject others.”
