Coathanger Bent Into a Halo
Check out Mary Karr's terrific essay, "Facing Altars: Poetry and Prayer," in the current issue of Poetry, about her conversion to Catholicism about 15 years ago, to help her stay sober. It sounds corny and 12-step simple, but it's really a very thoughtful piece. Almost made me want to be a practicing Catholic again (or at least to pray).
