Ms. Dominique on the Writer’s (spiritual) Life
“I am now ethically & spiritually devoted to a life of writing Fiction (not Poetry—which requires a life of devoted to sex and massive amounts of drugs & alcohol), which reminds me of that time I went to a Ladies’ Catholic Vocational Support Group meeting. It’s kind of like the Women Aglow meetings, except for young-ish single women. There they told us about how we could dedicate ourselves to God by becoming ‘Brides of Christ.’ This really appealed to my nun-ish side.
“There was a slide show with all this odd religious stuff about the ‘Perpetual Virginity’ of Mary. Then this old priest came in, and he claimed he was a ‘Bride of Christ’ too—which really threw me for a loop. I guess this is one of those ‘Mysteries of the Church’ they don’t usually talk about in Sunday School.”
