“Revealing Ramadan” & “Choosing to be Catholic” preview

To accompany Ramadan, the holiest month is Islam which started this week, Speaking of Faith re-released their program, Revealing Ramadan.

While I’m not Muslim, I see Ramadan as a time to learn more about Islam and how it is practiced in the U.S. and around the world.  I listened to this program last year during Ramadan and it greatly helped my understanding of the spirit behind this season and this faith.  I hope it helps you too.

In the next several days, I’ll be posting a series of excerpts called “Choosing to be Catholic” about my experiences being Catholic.  I have been writing this essay for most of the summer, but it seems appropriate that it will be finished during Ramadan.  In addition to learning more about Islam, I am trying to look at and further understand my own faith.  As is commonly said, only when you know yourself can you begin to know others.
