The article discusses the author's experience of exploring the mysteries of her faith. On April 4, 1968, when she heard on the radio the voice of Martin Luther King, Jr., she became certain that King would be killed that day. When they were making the movie "The Exorcist," a maniacal voice sounded loudly in her head, laughing wildly. She filled her mind with God's presence to take hold of herself. For the author, that was a big experience of the divine presence.
