These astonishing diaries are a major contribution to Christian spirituality. Robert Ellsberg, a close associate of Dorothy Day, has done an enormous service to Catholics, Christians, and all believers--as well as everyone who cares about social justice, peace and compassion--by carefully assembling the daily writings and meditations of one of the most important persons of our age. This is indispensable reading for anyone who cares deeply about God, about the world, or about humanity--in other words for anyone who wishes to learn how to love. --James Martin, SJ, author of My Life with the Saints
