Select and assorted Flannery

Eve has a great collection of quotes from Flannery O’Connor. While I haven’t had the chance to indulge much in the dear lady’s works, from this sampling it certainly seems as if I must. H/T to Dappled Things.

Penance rightly considered is not acts performed in order to attract God’s attention or get credit for oneself. It is something natural that follows sorrow. If I were you, I’d forget about penance until I felt called to perform it. Don’t anticipate too much. I have the feeling that you irritate your soul with a lot of things that it isn’t time to irritate it with.
