The Friendship of Catherine de Hueck Doherty and Dorothy Day as Revealed through Their Letters
Catherine Doherty and Dorothy Day had a beautiful adventure of friendship together. This presentation of their companionship through their letters is meant to supply a somewhat forgotten chapter in the history of the apostolic laity of North America.
The friendship of these two was very deep, holy, and lasting. They had different personalities and approaches to almost everything. Their relationship, however, as proved by the correspondence between them over many years (published for the first time in this book), is a profound example of how Christ can bind together people of very diverse temperaments and backgrounds and unite them in love by the power of the Holy Spirit, thus inspiring us all.
“I was mightily impressed by this great labor of love…. read it with rapt fascination…. It was a relationship marked by so much affection, despite obvious differences. Thank you for this!” — Robert Ellsberg, author of The Duty of Delight: The Diaries of Dorothy Day
