Veritas Amoris Project
The Veritas Amoris Project focuses on the truth of love as a key to understanding the mystery of God, the human person and the world, convinced that this perspective provides an integral and fruitful pastoral approach. The Project’s intellectual patrimony has three pillars:  (1) St. John Paul II’s theology of the body, (2) Pope Benedict XVI’s theology of love, and (3) Pope Francis’ pedagogy of love with its attention to human frailty.

“Three things are necessary for the salvation of man: to know what he ought to believe; to know what he ought to desire; and to know what he ought to do.” -St. Thomas Aquinas

“I am glad that we are talking about ‘homosexual people’ because before all else comes the individual person, in his wholeness and dignity. And people should not be defined only by their sexual tendencies: let us not forget that God loves all his creatures, and we are destined to receive his infinite love.”  - Pope Francis, The Name of God is Mercy

"Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection." 
- Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2357-2358.
