Sister Julia Walsh writes an insightful article about the experiences and challenges faced by Transgender Catholics within the Church. Sister Julia discusses the Vatican’s recent declaration on human dignity, examining its implications for transgender individuals. She brings up compelling questions regarding the Church’s stance on gender identity and the need for genuine inclusion and acknowledgment of transgender lives within Catholic communities. 

Sister Julia’s reflections on her own journey and encounters with transgender friends add to her advocacy. By sharing these experiences, she invites readers to empathize and learn from the diverse perspectives within the transgender community. 

Sister Julia highlights the importance of listening. Through listening to our transgender friends, we not only acknowledge the lived experiences of transgender but also show respect and compassion. Listening allows us to understand the challenges they face.
