Flannery and Gretchen: On Prayer

grubinIn “What Did Flannery O’Connor Pray For?” writer Gretchen Rubin muses about Flannery O’Connor’s devotion to St. Raphael. “As I’m thinking about O’Connor,” Rubin says, “I wonder if her prayers to meet the person she was looking for was tied, at least in part, to her art.”

Utterly, completely: yes.

(Rubin returns to this consideration, again, in her podcast episode of A Little Happier.)
