I don't think I'm getting far with this conversation or with Mary. Play on her sympathy for being outside the church and grace.  Might be the thread needle hole to her own. I've got a cloacal grip on life.   (From The Ginger Man by J. P. Donleavy.  A larger context is here.  Use ctrl-f to locate the sentence.)

Please explain "Might be the thread needle hole to her own".  Thanks.  --- tk
