It’s re­fresh­ing to see a fash­ion mag­a­zine fea­ture an ar­ti­cle about spir­i­tu­al­ity at a time when such a topic could be deemed con­tro­ver­sial. I was pleas­antly sur­prised when I read “Sa­cred Space” by Joana Lourenço [ELLE Trend, De­cem­ber 2014]. I’ve al­ways loved fash­ion and re­li­gion, even though the two rarely seem to go hand in hand. I used to think that my love of clothes was too ma­te­ri­al­is­tic for my Catholic val­ues, but, as I’ve ma­tured, I’ve learned that as long as you keep things in bal­ance, it’s pos­si­ble for style and piety to co­ex­ist. Fash­ion, af­ter all, is an ex­pres­sion of one’s cre­ativ­ity and a form of art, and art is def­i­nitely some­thing the Ro­man Catholic tra­di­tion is deeply steeped in. Bravo for print­ing such a rel­e­vant piece. BAR­BARA ELAINE CA­MANO, CALGARY
