“I think I could point out the sidewalk brick I was standing on when I thought, ‘I’m going to become Catholic.'”

Flannery O’Connor’s novel “Wise Blood” captured the imagination of Brother John Thomas when he was still a Southern Baptist.  As he began to explore O’Connor’s personal story, he was drawn to her Catholic faith, eventually becoming Catholic himself and joining the Dominican Order.

  • Great story. So heartwarming. I have a fondness of the Dominican Order, and I’m even thinking about joining up with the Lay Dominicans. We’ll see where it goes. But God bless you Brother John.
