Pope Francis spoke during his Mass said in the chapel of the Vatican's Saint Martha guesthouse, marking the first liturgical celebration of the feast of Mary, Mother of the Church, which he established in March.

Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean who was sexually abused by a Catholic priest, met with the Pope two weeks ago.

The Pontiff said that God had made Juan Carlos Cruz gay and that his sexuality "does not matter". God made you like this and loves you like this and I don't care. "The pope loves you as you are, you have to be happy with who you are, '" Cruz said.

Francis told Italy's bishops he was concerned about the "crisis of vocations" in a region of the world that once was one of the biggest sources of Catholic missionaries.

Since his election in 2013, the pope has dramatically shifted the language the Church has used about homosexuality, which was once seen as a taboo subject.

"I welcome any statement from Pope Francis which reminds people that gay people (like anyone) should love themselves", Robertson concluded.

"When a person arrives before Jesus, Jesus certainly will not say: "Go away because you are homosexual", he said.

Pope Francis said on Sunday that he will appoint Japanese Archbishop Manyo Maeda and 13 others as new cardinals.

After apologizing to the Gay community in 2016, Pope Francis continues on his righteous path in telling one victim of clerical sexual abuse (abuse conducted by clergymen) that his sexuality "does not matter".

Pope Paul VI of the Roman Catholic Church (r) and Orthodox Patriarch Athenagoras of Constantinople pose during an historic meeting on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Jordan, Jan. 8, 1964.

"He is a loving man who really embraces everybody", he said.

His abuser, Fernando Karadima, was found guilty of abuse by the Vatican in 2011.

Pope Francis has spoken with a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a priest and reportedly given the clearest indication yet of his acceptance of homosexuality.

In his homily, Pope Francis said that in the Gospel, Mary is always described as "the Mother of Jesus", instead of "the Lady" or "the widow of Joseph": her motherliness is emphasized throughout the Gospels, beginning with the Annunciation. Pope Francis himself decided the feast should be celebrated on the Monday immediately following Pentecost, in order "to encourage the growth of the maternal sense of the Church in the pastors, religious and faithful, as well as a growth of genuine Marian piety".
