Gutsy. Brave. Ballsy. Courageous. Bold. Impressive.
These are just a few of the words that some of my friends have heaped upon me during the last week. But I am none of these things. I only did what I did because I was asked to do so by a man who I realize now that I trust probably more than any other person I know. I did not write that letter out of courage or bravery or ballsiness. I wrote it out service to the Church. I wrote it out of love in order to defend my beloved. I did it because for once in my life I wanted to do the right thing in the right moment.
I did it because Jesus loves me and because the Church loves me. I guess I don’t know what else to say about what I did except that I deserve none of the accolades which I have received.
