Pope Francis Responds to 3 Questions from the LGBT Community "God is Father and he does not disown any of his children."

Vatican News reported that on May 5th, Father James Martin had written to the Pope in Spanish asking him to answer questions that he is commonly asked by LGBT Catholics and their families. He received a hand-written response a couple of days afterward, that was published in the on Father Martin’s website “Outreach”. 
Pope Francis answers three questions put to him by Jesuit Father James Martin whose pastoral ministry involves the LGBT community:
 Dear brother,
Thank you for your letter.
With respect to your questions, a very simple response occurs to me.
Outreach: What would you say is the most important thing for LGBT people to know about God?
God is Father and he does not disown any of his children. And “the style” of God is “closeness, mercy and tenderness.” In this way (or along this path) you will find God.
Outreach: What would you like LGBT people to know about the Church? would like for them to read the book of the Acts of the Apostles. There they will find the image of the living church.
Outreach: What do you say to an LGBT Catholic who has experienced rejection from the Church?
I would have them recognize it not as the “rejection of the church,” but instead “of people in the church.” The church is mother and calls together all of her children. Take for example the parable of those invited to the feast: “the just, the sinners, the rich and the poor, etc.” A “selective” church, one of “pure blood,” is not the Holy Mother Church, but rather a sect.
Thank you for everything you do. I pray for you, please do so for me.
May Jesus bless you and may the Holy Virgin guard you.
Last year in July, Pope Francis had sent Father Martin a letter on the occasion of the webinar “Outreach 2021” in which he said that “God is close to and loves each and every one of his children. His heart is open to all. He is the Father.”
