Her Words: Pruned


“What a paradox it is, this natural life and this supernatural life. We must give up our lives to gain them, we must die to live, be pruned to bear fruit. We want to be free, and we want to be free of responsibility except for our own. Am I my brother’s keeper? Or can I be free when other men are enslaved? ”
-Dorothy Day, The Catholic Worker, January 1951
