Q: 3: How does your religion inspire your poetry?
My Catholic faith encompasses everything I believe about reality. My perception is Catholic (at least I try to keep it Catholic) as I consider God, nature, humans, sin, suffering, redemption, sacrament, time, death, and love. My poetry comes from my perception of reality; that perception is drawn from my faith. And I think this must be true for every artist.
