Dorothy Day

On Tuesday evening, our parish gathered for a moving evening prayer remembrance of Dorothy Day.

I thought I'd share a piece of the prayer experience by posting the intercessions we prayed.

Intercessions
As Dorothy Day lived her Catholic faith boldly and unwaveringly,
May we be renewed in our fidelity to living the Gospel with energy and conviction in our everyday lives.

As Dorothy Day lived a life of peace and non-violence,
May we be affirmed in the choices we make for life and peace.

As Dorothy Day sought to live her life among the poorest of the poor,
May we have the courage in our own lives to make a preferential option for the poor, the exploited, and the marginalized.

As Dorothy Day recognized the grace of companionship as a way of living witness to God’s loving presence,
May we strive be present to those most in need.


As Dorothy Day at her death heard the voice of Jesus call, “Come, blessed of my Father, receive the crown I have prepared for you."
May we live so that we may one day enjoy the joys of eternal life.

Thank you, Brother, for visiting and posting. Please visit again!

By the way, I see you are a "TOR." My very good friend, the late Bishop Jerome Pechillo, was a TOR. Did you know (of) him?
