Visiting Flannery's Grave
One of the most profound blessings I have had was to pay my respects and offer prayers at the grave of Flannery O'Connor. While we should revere Flannery for her great contributions in literature and appreciate her cultural influence, I hope for the day the Church will recognize her for her exemplary witness of holiness and declare her to be a heavenly friend and intercessor.
