Saved By Beauty, A Spiritual Journey With Dorothy Day

     THE LAMB CATHOLIC WORKER, Columbus - This vibrant and vivid picture book (2012, World Library Publications) is written and illustrated by artist, Michael O'Neill McGrath and covers the life of Dorothy Day in a manner that even adults would greatly enjoy.  It truly emits a saving effect through its own beauty, in addition to the exquisite beauty and witness of Dorothy Day's life.  Her life was indeed like that of a Dominican, Franciscan, Carmelite, Peace Corps or Jesuit Volunteer Corps workers, seminary teacher or student, and convent teacher or student.  Who knows?  Perhaps there will someday be a Catholic Worker order!
       Thanks to Austin Schaefer, OSU campus minister, for this author-signed gift to the Lamb Catholic Worker! Below is a glimpse of the pictures. The many quotes from Dorothy Day, Peter Maurin, and the saints are just as amazing as the pictures.
