Mystical Same Sex Marriage with Jesus = at Jesus in Love Blog

There is a beautiful posting up at Jesus in Love Blog about Spanish Jesuit priest, Blessed Bernardo Francisco de Hoyos y de Seña, and his mystical marriage to Jesus.

The entire reflection is very moving and informative, but I was especially touched by these closing words, as the young 24 year old priest lay dying:

His dying words indicate that he felt the presence of his Spouse Jesus at the end. Bernardo’s last words were, “Oh, how good it is to dwell in the Heart of Jesus!”
Here is another account of the young saint at the fascinating blog, Good Jesuit, Bad Jesuit, but as Kittredge Cherry points out at Jesus in Love, the 'gay' mystical marriage of Blessed Bernardo is played down (not even mentioned) in favor of upholding him as an apostle of the Sacred Heart.



Just one more example of how gay lives and experiences are expunged from the public record in subtle ways - too hot to handle.
