Part of the mission of the Guild is to help spread the word of the Cause, including the “why’s” for Dorothy Day’s canonization. And there are many! The earliest issues of In Our Time explored the distinctive gifts she brings to the Church. Later issues looked at how she lived the great “theological” virtues of faith, hope, and charity ‑‑one of the requisite “proofs” of her holiness‑‑ followed by a series of issues highlighting the other requisite virtues, the “cardinal” virtues of prudence, justice, temperance and fortitude. We feel like we’ve come full circle with this Spring issue on prayer: prayer so animated her life and witness that we made it a double issue.
Guild members receive hard copies of the newsletter, four issues annually, as a thank you for their membership. (If you’re not yet a member, we encourage you to become one and thank you in advance!).
We hope In Our Time furthers conversation on why saints matter in general and why Dorothy Day matters in particular. We also hope it invites the exchange of stories from people whose lives, in very different ways, have been affected by Dorothy and the Catholic Worker. We even hope it sheds a little light on the complex process of canonization while keeping you abreast of all the progress made in advancing Day’s own cause.
And a final hope! That you not only read and enjoy In Our Time, but also share it with others, helping to spread the belief we hold fast — that Dorothy Day is a saint for our time.
