|Introduction||I'm a Catholic. That defines all else that I am. It is my heritage, my cross and my joy. It drives and colours all that I think, say and do. I didn't get this way by any logical procession, but miraculously and through God's overwhelming Mercy and Grace. It has been far easier for me than for most people---I think because I had less to work with and He is merciful. Sometimes the sheer Glory of it all presses down upon me so that I can hardly breathe... In addition, I am a wife, a mother a Texan and a faithful child of the Confederate States of America. I am a descendant of Chivalry and a denizen of Christendom. In short, I do not live in your "real world". But in the words of Puddleglum, my playworld "licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play-world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia...."|
