Description

Auteur

Michael Boover has been connected to the Catholic Worker movement since the early 70s when he met Dorothy Day and Catholic Worker priest Bernard E. Gilgun. Michael joined other young Catholic Workers in Central Massachusetts doing the works of mercy in a storefront and later house of hospitality in the city of Worcester and at the "House of Ammon" farm commune in Hubbardston. He also lived at the Catholic Worker Farm in Sheep Ranch, California. Michael currently lives and works at "Annunciation House of Worcester," a household blending Franciscan, Benedictine (Cistercian) and Catholic Worker influences. He and his wife, Diane, have four adult children who inspire and entertain.

Dorothy Day connected radical faith with radical deeds. Michael Boover shares Dorothys pilgrimage to the daily discipline of readiness and openness to God in her life, especially to God in her neighbor. He shares her words on why and how she prays, on her preference for frequent confession, on her intentional choice of suffering and poverty, and on her desire to imitate the saints and to make sanctity the norm of everyones life. In these 15 days, we see how Dorothys discipline gave her true freedom. In particular, it allowed her to give priority to Love to take the most direct route to God by loving her neighbor. She recognized the paucity of her own best spiritual efforts and took refuge in the fact that God would do for believers what they could not fully do for themselves. Boovers practical exercises emulate Days own temperament. They push you to live with more integrity and deeper love, and they show a deep compassion for the difficulty of the challenge.



Résumé
Dorothy Day connected radical faith with doing radical deeds; beginning from her discovery of God in the Word when she was eight years old.
