A Temple of the Holy Ghost - Flannery O'Connor - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of A Temple of the Holy Ghost:

A 12-year-old's attempts to make sense of life and God's will.

My favorite Flannery O'Connor quote from the story:

"She could never be a Saint, but she thought she could be a martyr if they killed her quick."

Questions to ponder while reading A Temple of the Holy Ghost:

What have you had to accept in your life?

What are your faults?

My review of the story:

A great story about the challenge of making sense of the world.

A great explanation of grace.

A great story about teenage angst and the behavior that goes along with it.
