From One Authoress to Another

"Your pain over the Church is a sign of your nearness to God," said the former to the latter, quoted by Rod Dreher with much, much more — Flannery O'Connor's Advice to Anne Rice.

Dreher would have done well to take those words of Ferocious Flannery to heart before making his juvenile decision to jump off the Barque of Peter.

Some friendly soul ought to have whispered in Anne Rice's ear these wise words of Frederick Buechner:

"The visible church is all the people who get together from time to time in God's name. Anybody can find out who they are by going to look. The invisibile church is all the people God uses for his hands and feet in this world. Nobody can find out who they are except God. Think of them as two circles. The optimist says they are concentric. The cynic says they don't even touch. The realist says they occasionally overlap."
