These are among the earliest of Dorothy Day's reflections on her life as co-founder (with Peter Maurin) of The Catholic Worker, a newspaper and a settlement house which grew eventually into a world-wide -- well, disorganization. She could hardly have known that she was starting a movement which would result in revitalizing and re-energizing the social conscience of thousands of followers in a pioneering work of putting the Second Great Commandment into practice in city streets. Ken Woodward of Newsweek says that "She did for her era what St. Francis of Assisi did for his: recall a complacent Christianity to its radical roots." And Professor David O'Brien of Holy Cross College called her "the most significant, interesting and influential person in the history of American Catholicism." (140 pages)
