I now know that there is a lengthy five year process, sometimes longer, that requires full dedication to the church in order to make sure the Sister truly wants this. I also was able to experience one of the prayer services that the Sisters attend three times a day, this was a unique experience. This assignment helped open my eyes to the once mysterious world of Sisters and nuns. I am thankful to be able to have these experiences and gain a richer understanding of my own
Fact 1: O’Connor was diagnosed with lupus, which resulted in her early death (Bradford 351). Because she was ill, she had to move back to Georgia for treatment. While living with her mother, she was extremely productive in her writing. Fact 2: O’Connor had a devout Christian perspective, and her “deep spiritual convictions coincide with the traditional emphasis on religion in the South” (Bradford 354).

The college did not take a stand on her for wearing a hijab, but for the reason she had cited in one of her posts saying that Christians and Muslims "are people of the book.
Many of the laws of Gilead are based on a very literal understanding of the Bible. Each week, the commander reads passages from the bible to the household, focusing on those which justify the actions and beliefs of Gilead. For example,“…and Adam was not deceived, but the woman who was being deceived was in transgression, notwithstanding she shall be saved through childbearing” clearly illustrates Gilead’s belief that women are inferior to men and can only be saved through reproduction. Ideas like this are drilled into the minds of the handmaids as they are taught to chant “Give me children or else I die”. Unfortunately for them, Gilead takes this saying seriously – if a handmaid is unable to conceive after three postings, she is sent to the colonies to work until she dies.
