On Monday, the text, Male And Female He Created Them, was released to help Catholic teachers, parents, students and clergy address what the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education called an “educational crisis” in the field of sex education.
Pope Francis has repeatedly argued the position that people cannot choose their genders.
In a statement in response a spokesperson for CBCEW said it was a welcome contribution to developing Catholic thought on gender, but reiterated the Church wanted to support those who are transgender.
“We recognise that there are people who do not accept their biological sex,” it said. “We are concerned about and committed to their pastoral care.
“Through listening to them we seek to understand their experience more deeply and want to accompany them with compassion, emphasising that they are loved by God and valued in their inherent God-given dignity.
“There is a place of welcome for everyone in the Catholic Church.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
