With these things she has had no time with which to write letters and she has nothing to complain about. The viewer also knows she is lonely as her last words in the monologue are ‘I am so happy.’ For most people prison is the worst time of their lives but prison gave Miss Ruddock a new license of life and now she has so little time for herself and feels so wanted and needed she loves life. I think that when Miss Ruddock is released from prison she will not continue to write letters. I think that, for most people the story had a sad ending, but Miss Ruddock learned a lot from prison, it helped her to overcome her ‘terrible loneliness’ by making her feel she had a purpose. It also taught her how to communicate with people orally, and how to make friends.
One day she had a dream in which she saw an old priest say Mass. After Mass, the priest turned and beckoned her with his finger, but she drew backwards, keeping her eye on him. The vision moved to a sick room where she saw the same priest, who said: "My child, it is a good deed to look after the sick; you run away now, but one day you will be glad to come to me. God has designs on you - do not forget it." Later, she awoke, not knowing the significance of the dream.
It is no wonder that Mother Teresa won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and is considered a saint. Anges Goxha Bojaxhiu was brought into this world on August 26, 1910 but considers her real birth date August 27, 1910, the day of her baptism.

It isn't very easy to follow the rules even for a Christian because if someone does something horrible to you, you would want to return the insult and hurt them. If they find it hard to forgive they often pray to God to give them strength to do it. An example of a Christian who has lived out Jesus' teachings and forgiveness and love of enemy is Corrie Ten Boom, when she forgave the people who killed her sister and an ex-guard at the concentration camp during the Second World War. When Peter asked Jesus about the number of times he should forgive people, Jesus said that you should keep on forgiving non-stop. Even if someone does something that is really wrong then you should still be willing to forgive.
When people give their lives to Christ Jesus their hearts are changed and their soul becomes alive with the Holy Spirit. Once a life is saved, is life relaxed and easy for it is saved from the pit of hell? Of course not, Christians are faced with temptations from Satan and his demons. Temptations are brought upon us for us to make the choice of whether or not to fall into temptation or not. In the book The Seven Spiritual Weapons, Catherine of Bologna lists seven spiritual weapons to conquer enemies of God.
Christians understand that suffering is used as a tool for God’s punishments. Also, Christians comprehend evil as wicked, hurtful, painful, and deathful; the opposite of God’s will allowing them to seek forgiveness (Rubin & Yasien-Esmael, 2004).

Yet Janie had had her voice throughout, from her loveless marriage with Logan, to her abusive relationship with Joe, and through her heavenly time spent with Tea Cake. Tea Cake didn’t help Janie find her voice, but instead just gave her something to use it on. Yet while critics will argue forever over the questions of Janie’s voice and emotional strength, it is unquestionable that she walked away from it all with a new sense of knowledge and experience.
Every former Gulag prisoner explained his/her survival as a result of many insignificant strategies. A variety of memoirists claimed that the only reason why they have survived was due to their spiritual life. To distract themselves for the physical sufferings, many prisoners created mental exercises: religious rituals, music, art, cards, chess, and literature.

As Ghalib believed in unity of God he mentioned “we believe in the unity of God for them our message is: abandon your rituals.” Indeed, he had a very different relation with the God. Readers often found him acted like a stubborn child with the God. His poetry gave the impression of the affectionate relation with the Creator. In his poetic verses, he used complaints and suggestions as the intense expression of the deep love, for example he wrote “Dear God, if there are punishments for the sins committed, there should also be reward for the sins carved, but not committed.”Along with that, he extended the dramatic images of deep sorrow and depression and used the vivid images to his depression, for instance “the foothold Lord, for desire’s second step?
