    Pope Francis has sent an encouraging letter to an American nun thanking her for her 50 years of ministry to LGBTQ Catholics, more than two decades after she was investigated and censured by the Vatican for her work.

He also noted her “suffering ... without condemning anyone.” Gramick, who lives just outside of Washington, D.C., in...
