Flannery O'Connor Blogsite
I was introduced by surfing serendipity today to a lovely website called flannery.oconnor.blogspot.com. I highly recommend it. I really don't know anything about the late Flannery Oconnor, although I see quotations from him from time to time. Having looked at the site for a short time I think I want to know more. Behold this gem.
When the Protestant hears what he supposes to be the voice of the Lord, he
follows it regardless of whether it runs counter to his church's teachings. The
Catholic believes any voice he may hear comes from the Devil unless it is in
accordance with the teachings of the Church.
This statement is quite true and perceptive, at least for a practicing, orthodox Catholic. Or how about this pearl of wisdom:
Don't expect faith to clear things up for you. It is trust, not
Simple yet profound. Now why can't I write like that? It's enough to drive one mad, I tell you.
