Things I Did Not Know About Dorothy Day

  One of my favorite people.
I have read biographies and autobiographies
and regulrly read her newspaper.
But i just learned some things today
Thanks to the Benedictine Sisters in Cottonwood, Idaho.

She considered the Beatitudes her mission statement.

She was a Benedictine Oblate (Hi, Regina!)

The Benedictines consider her a mystic.

When Pope Francis addressed  the U. S. congress,
he mentioned four "exemplary Americans:"
Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King,Jr., Thomas Merton,
and Dorothy Day.
Thanks to athgarvan

O God! that men would see a little clearer,
Or judge less harshly where they cannot see!
O God! that men would draw a little nearer
To one another, -- they'd be nearer Thee,
And understood.
Thomas Bracken
Not Understood Poem by Thomas Bracken - Poem Hunter
Give us your tired and weak
And we will make them strong
Bring us your foreign songs
And we will sing along

Leave us your broken dreams
We'll give them time to mend
There's still a lot of love
Living in the Promiseland

Living in the Promiseland
Our dreams are made of steel
The prayer of every man
Is to know how freedom feels

There is a winding road
Across the shifting sand
And room for everyone
Living in the Promiseland

So they came from a distant isle.Read more...Collapse )
