Mum always wore a rosary,
And so on my travels I would bring a rosary back,
From the Vatican, from a church in Brussels, from the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona,
From the Coptic area in Cairo.
And coming from a roman catholic upbringing,
I ask myself what is religion?
I can define it in one word - Aroha.
Literally translated it means love,
Therefore love is my religion.
And it is something that is spiritual,
Someone told me once, that religion was a way of controlling people,
and I thought this draconian. But I see her viewpoint. And that's fine too.
We cannot superimpose one belief system upon another,
