Quote of the Day (Flannery O’Connor, on Sermons)

“It is easy for any child to pick out the faults in the sermon on his way home from Church every Sunday. It is impossible for him to find out the hidden love that makes a man, in spite of his intellectual limitations, his neuroticism, his own lack of strength, give up his life in the service of God’s people, however bumblingly he may go about it.”—American novelist-short-story writer Flannery O’Connor (19251964), letter to Cecil Dawkins, December 9, 1958, The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O’Connor, edited by Sally Fitzgerald (1979)
