The Catholic Novel
Faith, fiction and the catholic imagination.
From Friday 6.00pm to Sunday 2.00pm (ends with 1.00pm lunch)
When Flannery O’Connor tried to describe what it is to write as Catholic writer she said simply: “the Christian novelist lives in a larger universe. He believes that the natural world contains the supernatural.” There is a great tradition of the Catholic novel that sees “grace everywhere,” describes something of divine destiny and purpose at work in the world. It is what Andrew Greeley calls “the Catholic imagination.”
On this weekend, members of the Belmont Community will discuss their favourite Catholic novels and this working out of divine grace.
Dom Brendan Thomas, Dom David Yates and Dom Alistair Findlay
