Many people who are compelled to religious faith do *not* “find comfort” and “reassurance” therein. Rather, they seek and ask questions and mourn and wonder with a community of others, with history, with tradition, with myth and poetry. There’s a ridiculous and stubborn idea out there that people of faith are singularly “fortunate to be able to believe.”
