Sigrid Undset is a good choice. I would ask her about her work with the French Resistance. And how she was courageous enough to leave her illict marriage after her conversion.

I would like to talk to Flannery O'Connor and G.K. Chesterton.

Do you think Charles Carroll was a Mason? I thought that was a scurrilous lie.

There is little doubt that Carroll was a Freemason, but no sin can be imputed to him, only a lack of prudence. The Papal decrees condemning Freemasonry had never been promulgated in the Colonies and were thus not binding on him.
