Hi my name is Jasmine, but I was born Thomas. First of all God loves you, He came to call sinners. I personally do not believe being LGBT is a sin, but it is a unique blessing from God who created us. It all started when I was eleven, gosh I thought I was normal till then! I began puberty at eleven. As my body developed into a boy, my brain developed female. I thought I was dying! My parents would throw away my make up, it was horrible! Anyway, after I was suicidal, on drugs, on the streets, my Eucharistic Minister parents accepted me for who I am. I’m at a Parish where I have never been denied the Sacraments. My dad is going with me for the final surgery. He is a devout Catholic, and Eucharistic Minister. My eight year old sister, who is an Altar Server loves her older sister. My priest and parishioners refer to me as Jasmine. My favorite priest has even told me he would never “out” me. For some time I helped out at Saint Vincent de Paul. I have come to learn that it is okay to be transgender and Catholic. I believe it is okay to go to Communion if YOU feel YOU are in good standing with God. I also believe I should not be having sex, but who knows about when I have a husband? I probably will be intimate with him, and still receive my Lord’s Body, and Blood. I know He loves me, so why not? It’s all a matter of conscience. Do you feel you have done anything wrong? If yes, do NOT go to Communion! If no, partake of our Lord’s Supper. Once you accept yourself, others will too, I pray. God bless! Love Jasmine.
