Sometimes a spiritual life does not fit within a structure.
Jennifer, a devout Catholic, is a friend I worked with for 10 years. I will always be grateful for her whole-hearted acceptance of me. Over the years of our friendship Jennifer was able to recognize and applaud the spiritual part of my character. She knew that whether I attended Mass or not, my relationship with God is an important part of me. She saw that I tried to live by the virtues we often think of as Christian. I try to ignore the others who proclaim me “not good enough.”
