Dorothy Day and The Catholic Worker

realize i've already posted on Dorothy Day and possibly The Catholic Worker, but am continuing to read more and more about Day, her counterpart Peter Maurin, those that were influenced by their work, and those who influenced their work.  strongly recommend that you pick up something (even if it is just the wikipedia post about Day, Maurin, or Catholic Worker movement) and read it.  remiss that i had not picked up something about this sooner. 

Day, Maurin, and the Catholic Worker paper/movement have influenced many in the neo-monastic movement and should inspire all of us, regardless of religion, denomination, or belief system to live a more genuine, authentic, holistic, agrarian lifestyle.  

if Day not your cup of tea, read Wendell Berry, whom i've also written about before.
