    “Respect” is such a key word used by Claire coming from the Latin, respicio, meaning to look behind, to observe or we could take it to mean in today’s world as taking a second look. Claire has said that beginning the day with prayer helps her to take a second look at God, at life and at others. Thank you for this inspiring and enriching interview ending with the gospel quote:
    “If you honour me before the people I will honour you before my Father in heaven” It is prayer which underpins (no pun intended!) Claire’s busy schedule in calm and tranquility.
