October / November 2004

The following articles were carried in the October/November 2004 issue of the Catholic Worker, which is NOT available on the Internet:

  • Light of Conscience – Prison Testimony of Voices in the Wilderness member Kathy Kelly.
  • Love Casts Out Fear – Dorothy Day reprint from February 1960. Makes mention of Thomas Merton.
  • Saints for us Sinners – Brief sketches of October and November saints.
  • Be All That You Can Be? – Reflections on the the draft and conscientious objection.
  • We Parched Desert Travellers – Descriptions of antiwar protests.
  • Jane Kesel, 1921-2004 – Obituary of a long term CW house resident.
  • Czeslaw Milosz, 1911-2004 – Obituary of award winning Polish poet who warned of threats to freedom from both Communism and consumerism.
  • Sustainable Soup – Reflections on organic vs. factory farming.

If you would like the full text of an article that I mention here, I have two suggestions:

1) Try to borrow the article through Interlibrary Loan.

2) Try contacting the Catholic Worker directly. They MAY be willing to send you the article, though I don’t know if they have morgue files. It seems likely they do, since they often reprint Dorothy Day articles. Contact information for Catholic Worker appears in the “subscribe” section below.

To Subscribe:

Even you if you don’t like what you see here, I encourage you to try a subscription to the Catholic Worker. They will give you a subscription for $0.25/year (If you want to cover the actual costs of a subscription, send them $10). You can hardly do better than a quarter a year!

Send your subscription requests to:

Catholic Worker

New York, NY 10003
Telephone: 212-777-9617 or 212-677-8627.

Even if you think you hate the Catholic Worker movement and all it stands for, subscribe anyway. See what the other side is doing. Also get it for the obituaries. Nowhere else will you find people memorializing the marginalized the way the Catholic Worker celebrates the lives that come through their houses of hospitality. Everyone can learn something about how to see every person’s dignity by perusing these obituaries.
