I believe in mistery. I believe in family. I believe in being who I am. I believe in the power of failure. I believe normal life is extraordinary.
This I Believe.

Our this I believe essay today comes from Sister Helen Prejean of New Orleans,Louisiana.
In 1981, she began / dedicating her life to the poor of that city and eventually to prisoners on death road. Her book / about her experience is there -dead mam walking was made into a movie with Susan Sarandon in a role of Sister Helen
Here is our series curator, independent producer Jay Alison.

Sister Helen Prejean was pleased to hear her essay with air today. On the feast of Epiphany, when Christians celerbrate the revolation the Jesus as the man of the position of God in human form offered salvation to all people. She felt it wasn't an appropriate day to pronounce her belief in making her Christian faith concrete through her actions. Here is Sister Helen Prejean with her essay for this I believe.

I watch what I do to see what I really believe. Believing faither / not just / words it's one thing for me to say I'm a Christain but I have to embody what it means I have to live in. So writing this essay and knowing I'll share in a public way becomes an occasion for me to look deeply and what I really believe by how I act.
"Love your neighbor as yourself", the Jesus says. And as a beginner nun I tried honestly to love my neighbor, the children I taught, / their parents my fellow teachers , my fellow nuns. But for a long time, the circle of my loving care was small and for the most part including only white, middle class people like me. But one day I walked up to the Jesus's deep challenge to love the outcast, the criminal, the underdog. So I packed my stuffing moved to a noisy,violent housing project in an African-American neighborhood in New Orleans.

I saw the suffering and I let myself feel it. The sound of gun-shots in the night/, mothers calling out for their children. I saw the injustice and was compelled to do something about it. I changed from being a nun who only prays for the suffering world to a nun with my sleeves throwed up, living my prayer.

Working in that community in New Orleans soon let me to Louisiana's death row. So I keep watching what I do to see what I actually believe.
Jesus is as big as challenge us is to love our enemies. On death row I encountered the enemy. Those considered so irredeemable by our society that even our Supreme Court has made legal to kill them.

For twenty years now I've been visiting people on death row and I've companied six human beings to their death. As each has been killed, I had told him to look at me. I want them to say a loving faith when they die. I want my faith to carry the love that tells them that thay and everyone of us so worth more than our most terrible acts

But I knew being with a purposed trait wasn't enough. I also hate to reach out the victims families. I visited the families who wanted to see me and I founded a victims sopport group/ in New Orleans. It was a big stretch for me, loving both perpetrates, and / victims' families and most of the time I fail/ because so often the victim's families interpret/ my care for perpetrates, as choosing sides, the wrong side. I understand that. But I don't stop preaching out.

I've learned from victims' families just how alone many of them feel. The murder of their loved one is so horrible, their pains so great that most people stay away. But they need / people to visit, to listen, to care. It doesn't take anybody special, just someone who cares.

Writing this essay reminds me as an ordinary person. It is important to take start to see where I am. The only way I know I really believe is by keeping watch over what I do.
