    Writing an introduction for an essay is -I think- the most important and at the same time difficult part in the process; since it provides a general picture of what the whole essay is all about.

    Don’t Say Too Much. Just tell the story! Your introduction should not be so complex and so lengthy that it loses the reader before they even start. You have the rest of the essay to say what you want. There’s no need to pack it all into the first sentence. This leads to the next tip…

    It may help to borrow some of your structure from what others have said, do say, in the research you are doing. I assume you do know what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says about the use and importance of the Rosary. The most recent Catechism I know of was put together by a Committee Chaired by the current Bishop of Rome prior to his becoming Pope. The Book of Common Prayer, in its various forms and publication, when complete, will have an Introduction regarding its intended use and purpose. The topic of Divine office (Liturgy/Liturgist) will be covered in both the Catechism and The Book of Common Prayer. The Lord s Prayer as a theme will be covered in both of those I mention above. As you go through the process of thinking about the topic think of heroes of the faith. These are the saints or the special religious people of your world. Use examples of how various people have found all these aspects of faith important to their lives. Your paper should introduce the topic of the four ingredients of Faith and Tradition you are going to explore. You need to say how you intend to explore the topic and give your thesis - which I think would be how these ingredients go into the formation of everyday life for those practising the faith. That is your conclusion you want to give which is basically in response to what you say at the bottom of your explanation of your exercise. Outside of the Book of Common Prayer, I have listed some extra source material you may consider looking at.

    You don t say which sport, or what you are trying to argue. But suppose your essay topic is, "Watching sports on TV is no substitute for the experience of a live game." - State your thesis (the above sentence). - Describe watching sports on TV (being alone or subject to interruptions, commercials, and so on). - Describe the excitement of a live game (being part of the crowd, attending a tailgate party). - Add how buying a ticket or a season pass helps to support the home team financially. - Reaffirm your initial statement ("Yes, take me out to the ball game. There s nothing like being there.") Civis Romanus

    You don t give enough details, but here are some general ideas. By the end of the first paragraph of a 750-1500 word essay, the reader should have a sense of its thesis, its main point. Often, but not always, the thesis statement is the final sentence of the first paragraph. Once decided upon, a thesis has to be presented in an orderly fashion. Five overall means of presenting a topic are a list, a definition, assertion and reasons, comparison and contrast, and a narrative, usually chronological. None of the above precludes the use of others. An essay devoted to defining a term (“love,” “job satisfaction,” “political failure,” e. g.) might be developed through a list of subsidiary qualities, contain a narrative or two, and present contrasting elements. Few writers have a sense of exactly where they are heading when they start. Organizational patterns can make themselves evident as a writer proceeds. In fact, the emergence of a clear form of organization can be a sign that an essay is approaching completion, as when, after a few months of knowing X and Y, you find that you really do love X but are bored by Y. Many essays are developed in list form, e. g., “I will now provide six episodes in Poe s _The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym_ intended to frighten the reader.” An essay in list form gains order, shape, purpose, and enrichment if the writer states explicitly why the items of a list are in the sequence that they are; e. g., “Here follow six episodes in The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym_ intended to frighten the reader, in order of increasing terror” will produce a more shapely, helpful essay than the preceding one. (If these episodes do not follow the chronology of the novel, a further point can be developed from that fact.) The five paragraph essay is a simplistic and reductive form: one can’t do justice to theology, the causes of the industrial revolution, sex, or the implications of binary code in five paragraphs. However, it has this advantage: the reader always knows how the body of the essay connects to the thesis. The job of a writer is to make every point and paragraph, directly and plainly, connect to the thesis as a five paragraph essay does, but without being reductive. Assertion and reasons, with some use of definition, is another common form of development, as is comparison and contrast. The most energetic and most insightful comparative essays proceed not by discussing one of the works being compared and then discussing the second but by asserting one point and looking at this point in each work and then moving on to a second point. This sounds like a lecture!
