Meeting With Muslims: Is Dialogue Growing? View Comments
By Carol Ann Morrow

Sakina Grome, from the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati, Ohio, and Stephanie Cline, a student at Mother of Mercy High School in Cincinnati, work together on a service project at the Imago Earth Center.
EVERYONE in these United States over the age of 10 has something to say about the events of September 11, 2001. We can read, rage, mourn, puzzle, debate and argue about those events—at great length. It is often a very circular conversation around the dinner tables with our own kith and kin. Not enough of us engage with the Muslim community—or do we? St. Anthony Messenger did a random sampling to gain a handle on Catholic engagement with Muslims coast to coast. It’s not necessarily a hot trend, but those who have actually met their Muslim neighbors feel engaged, respectful, inspired and—more often than not—enthusiastic.

Colette: Colette did not seek the limelight, but in doing God’s will she certainly attracted a lot of attention. 
<p>Colette was born in Corbie, France. At 21 she began to follow the Third Order Rule and became an anchoress, a woman walled into a room whose only opening was a window into a church. </p><p>After four years of prayer and penance in this cell, she left it. With the approval and encouragement of the pope, she joined the Poor Clares and reintroduced the primitive Rule of St. Clare in the 17 monasteries she established. Her sisters were known for their poverty—they rejected any fixed income—and for their perpetual fast. Colette’s reform movement spread to other countries and is still thriving today. Colette was canonized in 1807.</p> American Catholic Blog Being human means that I’m made in God’s image and likeness. Therefore I’m gifted; I have dignity and a great destiny. But being human also means that I’m a creature, not the Creator. I have limits that I need to recognize and respect.
