The Saga of Dorothy Day

Servant of God Dorothy Day

The vast majority of those who sought help at Catholic Worker houses of hospitality were pleasant and courteous, but some, (from drink, drugs, mental illness, or plain frustration at their plight) were sometimes violent. Dorothy met those angry few with a down-to-earth love and a good sense of humor.

    Mike, please tell Scott that this is great, but I couldn’t find anywhere on it (in print) who did it! I wondered if it was Grace.

    The artwork is by Scott. (With Grace away at college, she doesn’t draw so much for the paper anymore.)

    Well, tell Grace we miss her, ‘though it’s good to see that the artistic angle isn’t being neglected in the family!

    Can’t say that I’ve felt like killing anyone if I didn’t get my daily cups of coffee, but it does make me a little nasty if I don’t get at least 3 cups. Let’s have a cup.
