Raised as a "cradle Catholic," I have traveled a lonesome path of new incites and growth in what I believe or DON'T believe. I experienced all the judgments of Catholic and male superiors. J. Philip Newell not only opened my eyes and heart, but gave me "permission" to believe what I had always suspected, and to feel loved for who I am and how I want to be.
