Well, if anyone has lost ¨sight of it¨ they can come visit me in Guatemala at the small village where I live.

Hi Fr. Robert, Dorothy Day said, "Our problems stem from an acceptance of this filthy, rotten system." I certainly agree with that. Oh, how I hope and pray for change! On our living room wall, we have a large, framed photograph (from 1973) of Dorothy Day being arrested at a United Farm Workers protest. Nikolai and I consider ourselves "Friends of Dorothy" on so many levels. Peace be with you, sweet man! I wrote about Dorothy some time ago:
