    Her admonition in response to a letter I wrote to her in the 50s “Start where you are” has haunted my conscience since.

  9. Peter Gathje says:

    Dorothy Day continues to inspire me and others at Manna House in Memphis in the practice of Christian hospitality and the pursuit of justice. But she also inspires by her devotion to prayer and the Eucharist. Her life of holiness deeply reflects the life of Christ.

    On this Feast of St. Joseph the Worker and anniversary of the start of The Catholic Worker Movement – may the witness of Dorothy Day’s life stir us to live the Gospel ever more faithfully.

    This candle burns in our darkness. How can even the old Permskaya Gulag or contemporary Gitmo prevail against such light? Dorothy, pray for us. All you holy men and women, pray for us. Saint Joseph the Worker, pray for us. Angelo Roncalli, in later life Pope John of happy memory, pray for us. Pope Francis and your revered namesake, pray for us. Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

    I’ve only known of Dorothy for about ten years, and have now read much of her writings and much that has been written about her.
    When our son died two years ago tomorrow it was a memoriam of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn that Dorothy wrote, “Red Roses for Her,” that brought me comfort in the depths of grief. Near the end of the piece Dorothy wrote about our prayers have no time limits, God’s love does not either. The last sentence in which I substituted my son’s name Dorothy wrote, “And Josh will be judged by the love that is in his heart.”
    I’d read this some months before, and it came back to my memory only hours after our son died.
    I asked our pastor to use the previous two paragraphs for Josh’s memorial service, and they were!
    Thank you, Dorothy Day, for showing me the love of God.

    Please pray for the recovery of my niece, Darcy.
    I ask that all Dorothy Day followers pray for her behalf.
