Asking for the ridiculous


“What I am asking for is really very ridiculous. Oh Lord, I am saying, at present I am a cheese, make me a mystic, immediately. But then God can do that — make mystics out of cheeses.”

Flannery O’Connor prayed that in “A Prayer Journal,” a private book never intended for publication. She was in her early twenties. I might less certainly believe that a mystic is preferable to a really good cheese, but her faith in God’s power in her life was wonderful.
