Catholic Laity: May 2012 Archives

PeterMaurin learning.jpgCatholics who don't know the names of Peter Maurin (1877-1949) and Dorothy Day (1897-1980) ought to do some research. These two, I am becoming more convinced, are true holy people that we can reliably follow. That is, they will lead us to Christ. But don't be fooled: neither are easily understood given what we face today, nor are they lukewarm about the Catholic faith they wholeheartedly embraced and lived.

Writing for Crisis Magazine online, Christopher Shannon said that "Day herself considered him the holiest man she ever knew, yet conceded he was something of an eccentric. Still, she remained convinced that he was a truly Christian eccentric, a holy fool in the tradition of St. Paul, or more specifically, St. Francis."
