As many are mourning the loss of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, now is a good time to celebrate her life by looking at her thoughts on faith and spirituality. Her son has released a statement that has said the following:“Though her loss is devastating to those of us who held her so close and so dear, we will always be inspired by her enduring contribution to our world. …. Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.”
But the website Faith & Reason has also done a fantastic job of compiling quotes in which Taylor has commented on her thoughts about God. It seems Taylor was raised a Christian Scientist but converted to the Jewish faith later on for marital reasons. But regardless of her particular religious affiliation she was quoted on more than one occasion as saying she did believe in a Higher Power, largely because of her time with Alcoholics Anonymous to battle her addictions.
I know I will remember Taylor for her tireless charity work on behalf of AIDS. even more than I will remember her for her films.
How will you remember Taylor’s generous, inspiring legacy ?
