It’s No Surprise

What a quote: “It’s no surprise that some of our greatest novelists — Flannery O’Connor, Evelyn Waugh, Graham Greene — were Catholics. There is a sacramental quality of fiction, an incarnational quality of fiction, whereby the earthy people, utterly human people, have been in some mysterious way embraced by the divine and become themselves sort of sacramental. We see God through the most mundane and quotidian of devices.” Bishop WIll Williman

 

It’s no surprise?

No, it’s not, especially if you know the least thing about statistics, just as it’s no surprise that some of our greatest novelists have been Non-Catholics.

Then again, some of our crappiest novelists have certainly been Catholics too.
