My startle response kicks in whenever someone characterizes me as a "Catholic writer." Moi? Sometimes I think so. At other times I totally don't understand what the characterization even means.
Fortunately, I have this quote from a reflection titled, "The Apostolate of the Pen" to read and re-read for solace and comfort. It first showed up in the May 24, 1952 issue of America magazine, and I'm grateful it was reprinted by America editors in 2008.
