Well I am keen to make a novena to Our Lady of Loretto for the success of the vote for gay marriage in Italy. I am sure she will answer our prayers to protect her gay sons and daughters.
Good news – my novena worked for this stage, but a log way to go yet.
As I understand an agreement was reached between the vatican and the Italian Government decades ago that the vatican would be a separate state within Italy provided that they (the vatican) stayed out of that countries political system. Any ruling passed by Brussels does not apply to the vatican as they are not in the European Community.
We have gay marriage in Massachusetts, USA the World hasn’t ended. Check out our trailer on Gay Marriage. Produced to educate defuse the controversy it has a way of opening closed minds creates an interesting spin on the issue: http://www.OUTTAKEonline.com
