Could the Church Ever Bless Same-Sex Unions

The Catholic Church would never approve or in any way support same-sex “marriages”, nor could any Catholic priest validly wed or bless such a couple. It does not matter If these have had any civil ceremony of some sort, the Church stand will not change about this matter.

The Church believes that for a marriage to be valid, it needs to be freely entered but by one man and one woman.

CCC 2357 

Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
