The World Seen Through the Lens of Faith


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: For thou art with me…” We sit and recite these words that we know by heart, which seem to mean absolutely nothing to us right now. I look to my sister on my left; she looks back at me for reassurance. I give her a strong, stern look: We can do this. As the psalm, which does no justice in representing the reason we are here, is ending, my sister and I stand up in anticipation of Father Wheeland inviting us to the pulpit. He introduces us to all the people who already know us very well before stepping aside. My sister, although three years older, is just not strong enough to go first, so I step up."
