My journey to Mother began one afternoon when I asked Abigalé, my soul, if we could travel. Can you take us somewhere? My eyes were shut against the daylight that filled our room. All at once the darkness behind my eyelids turned black—then blacker still. I was not afraid, but excited.

Since that time more than 1,600 years of western Christians have grown up with two male Parents. The irony? This unearthly idea began in Holy Rome.
