Dorothy Day was a saint, maybe not in the usual sense, but I know Cardinal O'Connor wanted to canonize her. As Jesus said in the Gospel today a prophet is not honored in his own town.


It's very funny that you mention Dorothy Day. I think she saw so much of the loneliness of our country, especially in New York, and she responded with the solidarity of the Catholic Worker Movement, which still goes on.

I am reminded of the autobiography by the great Dorothy Day, called "The Long Loneliness". She begins the book with a very stirring description of sacramental confession and what it's like to bare your soul before God and your own eyes.

I can't help thinking that if more people went to Confession they would feel less lonely because they would be more forgiving of others because they are forgiven.
