College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Patrick Adams Major in political science Double major in theology Adviser: David Fagerberg Understanding the Mass as Sacrifice: Origins, Developments, and Common Interpretations An author I read put it best when he said that the Mass is neither known, nor understood, nor attended, nor loved as it deserves. It is my hope that my thesis contributes to a better understanding of what the Mass actually isthe celebration of the same Eucharist that was instituted at the Last Supper, a true and real sacrifice offered to God for the forgiveness of sins.

Minor in Italian Adviser: Maxwell Johnson The Anaphora of Addai and Mari My thesis studies the Anaphora of Addai and Mari, the earliest Eucharistic prayer in continuous use, remarkable for its lack of an institution narrative. It examines the origin of Eucharistic prayers, the Assyrian Church of the East, a recent intercommunion document, and the implications of the Church. The document issued jointly by the Assyrian Church of the East and the Catholic Church allows for communion between the two groups despite the lack of an institution narrative. I feel that such a momentous decision could be the beginning of further ecumenical dialogue that can hopefully unite both College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Raquel Falk

Major in Program of Liberal Studies Minor in theology Advisers: Margaret Pfeil and Denis Robichaud Cooperative Economics: A Eucharistic Practice in Positive Interdependence As a sophomore, I became involved with the Monroe Park Grocery Cooperative (MPGC) here in South Bend. The MPGC takes Mouniers idea of personalism seriously and keeps social justice at the heart of its operation. My senior thesis examines this merging of the Churchs social teaching and meeting the practical needs of society. I show that living in positive interdependence is a moral category stemming from the Sacrament of the Eucharist. This cooperative model is an economic practice that allows members to live out positive College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects

Sandra Laguerta Major in theology Double major in medieval studies Adviser: Sr. Ann Astell Refusing God Nothing: Providence, Sainte Jeanne Jugan, and the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor My thesis explores the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Poor, founded in France by Sainte Jeanne Jugan. By examining the sources and influences of Jugans spirituality, I seek to understand contemporary Little Sisters spirituality. In 2010, I was introduced to the Sisters at Sacred Heart Residence in Mobile, Ala., through the Summer Service Learning Program. I was intrigued by the intricacies and strength of the sisters prayer life. Studying the sisters was a practice in prayer,

College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Elizabeth Lent Major in psychology Minor in theology Adviser: Daniel Lapsley God as Attachment Figure: Influence on Identity Formation My research assessed the relationship between a persons attachment with God and psychological outcomes, in particular adolescent identity formation. Results demonstrate an association between avoidance attachment with God and nonconformist and noncommitted identity, as well as an association between secure attachment with God and conformist but committed identity. Research has demonstrated that attachment to God may be conceptualized in a similar way to caregiver attachment. I wanted to assess if

College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Kimberly Lisiak Major in theology Supplementary major in Arts and Letters Pre-Health Adviser: John Cavadini Devotion to St. Joseph: A Historical Background and Practical Application My thesis examines St. Joseph in the Bible and devotions attributed to his characteristics. I provide a practical application of these devotions using the Sisters of St. Joseph who emulate him through love and action daily. Taking a class on St. Joseph, I became especially intrigued by his nonverbal characteristics and wanted to share his love and wisdom. Starting with the Bible and uncovering the roots of these devotions, I have been able to demonstrate how St. Joseph continues to impact our modern world.

College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Jessica Rydberg Minor in theology Major in science preprofessional studies Adviser: Alexandra Corning Understanding Bulimic Symptomatology in Midlife Women: Does the Dual-Pathway Model Apply? My thesis examines whether the predictors of bulimic symptoms in adolescent women are also applicable to women in midlife. Eating disorders are becoming more prevalent in our society, and I am interested in researching their predictors.

Adviser: Francesca Murphy Hand-in-Glove: A Cautionary Examination of the Relationship Between the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland and Its Political State This work addresses the role of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland in the early 20th century. I argue that the current crisis of faith in Ireland is because of the Churchs close ties to the state during this tumultuous period. I was shocked to learn that more than half of the citizens of Ireland today no longer hold to a particular religious creed. This is not a new trend, nor is it singular to Ireland; however, I wanted to see if Irish history might College of Arts and Letters 2013 Senior Thesis Projects Bryan Williams Major in philosophy

Minor in theology Adviser: David Solomon MacIntyre, Smith, and Modernity Both Alasdair MacIntyre and Christian Smith critique contemporary culture. MacIntyre argues that philosophers of the Enlightenment Project had to fail because they rejected an understanding of teleology. But, does Smiths attempt to preserve an understanding of the human person in sociology succeed or does he fall in line with Enlightenment thinkers? Although the two authors share many points, they disagree on a notion of rights. MacIntyre argues that rights are a mere fiction of Enlightenment thinking while Smith argues that each human has rights and a particular human dignity. To a
