In a continuation of the last CP post, we think of the Dorothy Day effect in the larger community. Not only did she share personalism with those living in the NY area, her witness and legacy grew 70 x 7 (and more!)
An MWPC friend shared a Dorothy Day experience that touched his extended family and ultimately thousands of Cincinnatians.** Over-the-Rhine Kitchen – now called Queen City Kitchen – was established because of the energy and light that Dorothy shared at House of Hospitality in New York City (more details at the website HERE.)
As we continue Moving Towards the Light, it’s nice to have beacons like Dorothy Day…
Enjoy this day, perhaps with a personalism perspective, loosening life’s self-focus and allowing more strengthening and spurring of the Spirit in the process!
