witness to the mercy and goodness of God, to the efficacy of his grace, and to the veracity of the teachings of his Church Cardinal Robert Sarah, from the Foreword Author, God or NothingDaniel Mattson

throughout and is a powerful reminder for all of us Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New YorkThis powerful book reminds us that we need to accompany our brothers and sisters in their struggles

our lives Most Reverend Jos H Gomez, Archbishop of Los AngelesDan Mattson is a profile in courage This profoundly moving story of his experience of same sex attraction and his reflections on the hard won truth that those attractions do not define him mark a way forward for others I highly recommend this memoir to pastoral ministers accompanying our brothers and sisters in similar circumstances Cardinal Sen P O Malley, GCIH OFM Cap., Archbishop of BostonSaint Peter writes, His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature 2 Pet 1 3 Dan Mattson sincerely embraces this promise His story demonstrates that such a divine project is, through one s encounter with Jesus, well within our grasp Most Rev Michael J Byrnes, Coadjutor Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Agaa, Guam Mattson generously opens his own heart to the reader, sharing the deep suffering and remarkable redemption that have shaped his life This book is truly a witness to God s ability to bring abundant life, peace of heart, and joy Cardinal Thomas Collins, Archbishop of TorontoThis easy to read, encouraging and personal witness of a man who found a way to peace may mark a turning point for the Church in getting ahead of this issue of our times and in offering a quiet Gospel space where many of its sons and daughters can be free Most Rev John Keenan, Bishop of Paisley, Scotland Dan Mattson s witness is courageous and compassionate It deserves the utmost respect George Weigel, Distinguished Senior Fellow, Ethics Mattson s book is honest, generous, wise, and very well written This book resembles many of the spiritual classics and, indeed, may become one Janet Smith, Ph.D., Editor, Living the Truth in Love Pastoral Approaches to Same Sex AttractionIf you read only one book on the subject of same sex attraction, it should be this one Yet Daniel Mattson s luminously truthful book is about so much besides, such as humility, magnanimity, true manhood, purity of heart, and the gift and discipline of friendship Superb J Budziszewski, Ph.D., Author, On the Meaning of Sex This book engages honestly and intelligently a central issue of our time Mattson tells a personal story that will be helpful and inspiring for all who struggle with sexual identity David L Schindler, Dean Emeritus, John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, Catholic University of AmericaFor Daniel Mattson, coming out was not liberating, but rather imprisoned him in a closed minded gay culture that defined him by his feelings of sexual attraction It was in leaving the gay lifestyle to become a chaste Catholic that he became free to enjoy true friendship He has an important story to tell, and he deserves to be heard Dawn Eden, Author, Remembering God s MercyDan Mattson knows well both the what and the how of Catholic teaching what it is and how it is lived out

now bears the beauty of the Cross You will read these pages with tears of joy This is a work of spiritual realism and much wisdom Robert Reilly, Author, Making Gay OkayFinally, a balanced account of liberation from superficial gaydentity to the depths of divine filiation through Jesus Christ Mattson veers away from polemics and politics and goes straight to the heart, from the heart, with
