Appreciate clarification

To the editor:

As members of the Rochester Affiliate of Voice of the Faithful, we applaud Bishop Clark for his clarification to all Catholics of our Diocese in his column of November 12, 2005, concerning priests and seminarians who are homosexual.

Bishop Clark, we would like to thank you publicly for speaking with such love and care — the words of encouragement, understanding and support you gave these men who so faithfully serve the needs of the people of our Diocese. Their sexual orientation has not been harmful or detracted from their ministry. We, too, value their ministry! Thank you for speaking out as our bishop and clarifying a very difficult issue in our Church at this time. Your support of priests of integrity regardless of their sexual orientation is admirable.
