Among Catholic novelists, Graham Green is my favorite. If "Catholic implications" means what I think it does, then William Faulkner is the greatest I've read. Several of Flannery O'Conner's stories say things no one else will say, but seem didactic. To me, her letters to other writers are more interesting than her fiction.

For fictional applications, I like Waugh, O'Connor, and Tolkien. Tolkien's work is rooted in symbolism, by the way.... this does not eliminate his deep faith from the equation. I do like Chesterton, but most especially love John Henry Cardinal Newman. I would have loved to "read" the writings of Julian of Norwich and Catherine of Siena.
