...Flannery OConnor The Mary Grace can be said to be the symbol of the virtue of grace throughout the story of Revelation.

In both stories, the reader is introduced to a small rural household with one older but still single and somehow defective daughter. This daughter, and subsequently the rest of her family... ...
