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 to dedicate her life to the poor of that city and eventually to prisoner on death road. Her book is about her experiences there dead mam walking was made into a movie with Susan Sarandon in a role of Sister Helen
Here is our series curator, independing producer Jay Alison.
Sister Helen Prejean was pleased to hear her essay here today. On the faith of /, when christian 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 a proporite 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 say what I really believe. Believing faither is not just in 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 it. 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 neighbore as yourself",the Jesus says. As a beginner nun I tried hard to love my neighbor, the children I taught and 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 white, middle class people like me.
But one day I walked up to the Jesus 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 led myself feel. The sound of gun-shots in the nights, mothers calling out for their children. I saw the injustice and was compeled 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 begins to 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 has 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 purpose trait wasn't enough. I also hate little child to visit their families. I visited the families who wanted to see me and I founded a victims sopport groups in New Orleans. It was a big stretch to me, loving both perpotrators, and the victims' families and most the time all failed because so often the victim's families interpreted my care for perpotrators. as choosing sides, the wrong side.I understand that. But I lost
out. I've learned a victim's 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 the people to visit, to listen, to care.It doesn't take anybody special just someone knew cares.
Writing this essay reminds me as an ordinary person. It is important to take see where I am the only way I know I really believe is by keeping watch over what I do.
