CWN Editor's Note: “Transgender people must be accepted and integrated into society,” Pope Francis wrote in a letter to Sister Jeannine Gramick.

The Pontiff wrote to Sister Gramick—one of the founders of New Ways Ministry, whose advocacy for homosexuals drew a caution from the Vatican and, in 2010, from the US bishops’ conference—after she had written to complain about the condemnation of gender ideology in Dignitas Infinita.

Responding quickly to the complaint, the Pope said that the Vatican document’s negative judgement “refers not to transgender people but to gender ideology, which nullifies differences.”
