I don’t think you should write something as long as a novel around anything that is not of the gravest concern to you and everybody else and, for me, this is always the conflict between an attraction for the holy and the disbelief in it that we breathe in with the air of our times.  It’s hard to believe, always, but more so in the world we live in now.  There are some of us who have to pay for our faith every step of the way and who have to work out dramatically what it would be like without it and if being without it would be ultimately possible or not. – Flannery O’Connor (1925-1964)
