In Good Conscience: Sister Jeannine Gramick's Journey of Faith
Call Number: BX1795.H66 I5 2006
"Presents the work of Sister Jeannine Gramick, who offers compassionate Catholic ministry to the gay and lesbian community, contrary to official church practice and doctrine.

The film follows her on that journey, as well as capturing other moments of Gramick's work and dialogue with the larger community, as regards both her motivations and her efforts to reconcile her own spiritual beliefs with those of the Church."
