Summary: Reflects on art and Dostoevsky’s phrase “Beauty will save the world.” Laments the encroachment of the “totalitarian State,” notes the spread of tax resistance, and inveighs against the Vietnam War. Admires the war resistance work of folk singer Joan Baez. (DDLW #527). The Catholic Worker, January 1973, 2, 6.
Summary: Appeals for money, telling how they often pay poor people’s rent. Mentions the saints of the week and reminds us we are called to be saints– “to be a lover, ready to leave all, to give all.” We progress on this path by beginning over again each day. (DDLW #738: The Catholic Worker, April 1958, page 2.)
