Abstract
Flannery OíConnor is an American short story writer and considered a prominent one in the canon of Christian fictional writing. Revelation (1965) is one of her most celebrated stories in all of her thirty two short stories. The select story is an embodiment of her objective of writings. OíConnor believes mankind should know and have God in their lives to realise their spiritual and moral depravity and then can transform themselves to lead a diligent and happy life. The article explores main character, Mrs Turpin of the select story who is in a false assumption of her self as a righteous person and a good Christian. She believes her treatment of poor and lowly people to be right, which in reality is not. This paper explores how God bestows his grace by providing her an opportunity to know her inner self through unexpected, abrupt and grotesque situations.

Key words: Grace, God, Self-righteous, Grotesque.
