"Most of us come to the church by a means the church does not allow."

... Flannery O'Connor.

Thanks, Kat. I haven't read any Flannery O'Connor for years and years, about all I remember is that she's deep. There's another Catholic woman you might find interesting: Caryll Houselander, she wrote some very profound stuff. Bless you!

Almighty God does seem to draw straight with crooked lines.
That is how I came back to the Church.
That sinful conduct does not justify the good ends though.
I wish I had listened to my holy parents and been obedient to them then God would not have had to use "plan B" with me.

yes, but we all know story that the one who has much forgiven loves the most.

I have not seen that quote before and I don't recognize it from any of her letters I've read. How very true it is.

Indeed, if only we can remember to keep loving.

I hadn't seen that quote before, either - very profound. Thanks.
