Why do I say I'm half Muslim and half Catholic, and how can that BE? Well, I raised myself Catholic, and loved the Church with all my heart and soul. I raised my kids Catholic and immersed myself in Catholic Spirituality and teachings. Then along came 9/11, and I HAD to find out what the Muslims believe, so I bought a Qur'an and began reading. WOW! It touched my heart in such a profound way that I became frightened and put it back on the shelf for 9 months. But little by little it had found it's way into my heart. I have studied Islamic spirituality since then, and have done my best to blend it into what I knew of Catholicism. Well, people say you can't be Catholic AND Muslim, but I'm here to say, I am both.
I have two great children, and one great little grandson. I have survived all sorts of difficult situations, and have come out victorious.
