The Real Dorothy Day

Catholic World Report: Dorothy Day: A Saint to Transcend Partisan Politics
Day continues to be something of an enigma to many. One of the widespread legends about Day is that she was a Communist, a bit of “history” that simply isn’t true. Around the time of her conversion, she worked for the Anti-Imperialist League, which was a Communist front organization. According to Cornell, Day felt a lot of unease about this and talked to her confessor about it.

“He told her, ‘You have a daughter to support—until you can find something else, keep working there,’” he said.

According to Cornell, when Day wrote later in life that she was an ex-Communist, she was referring to her time working for the Anti-Imperialist League.

And her attitude towards the welfare state:
Another misconception about Day involves her relationship to government in general. Contrary to Internet combox lore, she and Peter Maurin were no devotees of the state or state-sponsored welfare.

Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom at Norcia

The FB post:
On January 1st, the monks had a guest from Ukraine who offered the Divine Liturgy in English/Old Slavonic. Here is the link to the Liturgy: http://osbnorcia.org/2013/01/01/divine-liturgy-of-st-john-chrysostom

I asked our guest master, Br. John, who the presider was and this is what he said:

This Divine Liturgy was offered by Hieromonk Manuil a studite monk of the Lavra in Univ, Ukraine. Here is their website: http://studyty.org.ua/. Unfortunately, it's only in Ukrainian!

Hope you enjoyed it!
