Lenten Retreat: Flannery O'Connor and the Suffering Gospel - Part 1

Thinking Faith: The Catholic Podcast

This week we begin a two-part Lenten retreat on Flannery O'Connor and the suffering Gospel.  We'll reflect on this call to take up our cross and the essential role of grace in shaking up our world-view and stripping away those things which hamper our journey into sainthood. Show Snippet: "O'Connor...recognizes that this desire and calling to a life of sainthood is both the only calling that matters, that indeed contains all other callings in life, but is also unattainable save by grace."
