“If we intend to encourage Catholic fiction writers, we must convince those coming along that the Church does not restrict their freedom to be artists (the restrictions of art are another matter), and to convince them of this requires, perhaps more than anything else, a body of Catholic readers who are equipped to recognize something in fiction besides passages they consider obscene.”
