How did poet Mary Karr go from unrepentent atheist to Catholic? She charts her journey in the book "Sinners Welcome," which is full of spiritual poetry that packs a punch. Tune in and hear Alice and Lori discuss two of her poems and a quotation from her essay on poetry and prayer...we'll address such subjects as the nature of meekness (and how to get there), rejection and acceptance of God's grace, plus much more.
