Wisdom From Miss Flannery

“I think most people come to the Church by means the Church does not allow, else there would be no need for getting to her at all. However, this is true inside as well, as the operation of the Church is entirely set up for the sinner; which creates much misunderstanding among the smug.”

--Flannery O’ Connor
