A stream gently cascades over some rocks on its way out to sea near Tramore. Such spots are always an oasis, lovely to sit next, relax and unwind.

‘Gay people often have much to teach us all about the importance and the value and the nature of friendship.’ ~Duncan Forrester

Jacinta Kitt recently gave a talk to our first years in Coláiste Choilm on bullying. She recalled the story how one day she was out walking on the beach with her husband and came across written into the sand, “John Paul is Gay”. So she bent down and wrote underneath it in equally big letters, “SO WHAT!”. Everyone laughed but she had made her point. So what if you are gay or different in some way. So what if others think differently to you. This is who you are. Stand up, be brave and hold your head high. The programme ‘Growing Up Gay’ on RTE last night, however shows a different story. If you are gay you can be isolated, lonely and lost. The programme also highlighted how the love and support of family and friends can make such a difference. The Gospel message is that you are special and loved by God uniquely. Sadly not everyone has been as accepting or inclusive. The words ‘so what’, can be liberating. They can unlock many doors. To parents of a young adult who is gay, the following words will always unlock many doors: “So what, I love you and always will”.
