Dorothy Day (1897-1980), the great twentieth century American Catholic activist once told noted psychiatrist Robert Coles, in one of her many interviews with him that “A community is what Saint Paul told us – our differences granted respect by one another, but those differences not allowed to turn us into loners. You must know when to find your own, quiet moment of solitude. But you must know when to open the door to go be with others, and you must know how not to open the door. There’s no point in opening the door with bitterness and resentment in your heart.” Linda Meyer will present major aspects of how this remarkable woman opened herself to others at a troubled time in our nation’s history.
