This week we
reflect on the invitation to allow our hearts to be pierced by the
crosses of the world through the lens of another of Flannery
O'Connor's characters, Mrs. Greenleaf, as encountered in the story
named after her - "Greenleaf".
"We are called to be open to God's own heart, and God's own vision
of the world...to be Mrs. Greenleafs by vocation; to roll in the
dirt of all of the horror, injustice, sadness, and absurdity of the
world and cry out with God that our hearts might be stabbed in the
heart by Jesus."
