“If the Eucharist is just a symbol then to hell with it!” —Flannery O’Connor

Last Sunday, on Corpus Christi, Bishop Steven Lopes based his homily around that famous quote of Flannery O’Connor’s.  I wrote a story on the homily for Catholic papers, though I have not seen it published yet.  In the meantime, anyone who would like to listen to it can do so at St. George’s website here.DSC01992

  1. Could a variation of Flannery O’Connor’s quotation be applied to a recent statement by the Jesuit Father General? Viz., “If the devil is just a symbol, then to hell with him [i.e., the devil]!”
