Jesuit priest Father James Martin said that celebrating Pride month is compatible with the Catholic celebration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. “In June, Catholics celebrate the Month of the Sacred Heart” Father Martin wrote on Twitter. “LGBTQ people celebrate #PrideMonth. LGBTQ Catholics celebrate both. One shows us how Jesus loves. The other shows us whom Jesus calls us to love today.” Many Catholics expressed perplexity on how the father equated a celebration of Pride with the celebration of humility in the Sacred Heart.
