Dorothy Day and St. Thérèse of Lisieux are two Catholic figures that I admire very much and pray to often. I thought Fr. Rolheiser’s recent article on their connection was just lovely, and I would like to thank him for the gift of his writing. 

As the case for Day’s sainthood advances, I would love to see more writing in Angelus about her, including her thoughts on the idea of her own sainthood! Her example of service and love for the poor is ever needed, and her life and struggles are a beautiful example of the cycle of consolation and desolation we all go through as followers of Christ.
