A love shaped key opens every sacred door, portal, passage and visage – it is the secret of the universe, the divine way, the truth. A key shaped by love, of love, with love, in love, to love – for love. And not the love that is mere feeling or sentiment or self pleasing regard – but love that is willing sacrifice, commitment, surrender, courage, faithfulness. Love that is, itself, divine. This is the secret of life, this is the holy way – this is truth that sets us free.
Although crippled by disease, I am fully alive in love. I write about the profound wonder and terrible beauty of life while living with physical disability and severe dependency. Unafraid to ask life's big questions, I was briefly an atheist and considered other religions before finding, in God's choice to intimately share our humanity, what it truly means to be fully human. A revert to the Catholic Faith, I blog weekly and have written a book called It's Good to Be Here.
