Dorothy Day is indeed a saint and deserves to be recognized for living her faith. She practiced the corporeal works and spiritual works of mercy while living a life of voluntary poverty. It's a wonderful book with excerpts taken from the Catholic Worker paper which she and Peter Maurin started. So I would rate the book high in terms of its content. However, the picture of her on the cover is absolutely "terrible". It looks nothing like Day and does not capture the fierce passion and ardor which characterized her life. It makes her look "simpy", if that's a word. I bought it in spite of the picture.

Dorothy Day will probably be canonized someday by the Catholic Church. Praying in the Presence of Our Lord with Dorothy Day collects 136 short meditations culled from her writings in The Catholic Worker. Like Day herself, they can be insightful, thought provoking, feisty, radical, and challenging.

The selections are grouped into 4 categories: Practicing the Presence of God; The Way of Love; Weapons of the Spirit: Prayer, the Bible, and the Sacraments; and, To be a Saint. As Fr. Benedict Groeschel writes in the Preface: "Those who criticize Eucharistic devotion as separated from our realistic responsibilities to others should be completely silenced by this book. On the other hand, those who are already dedicated to prayerful Eucharistic devotion will learn from Dorothy Day that you cannot adore Christ in the Blessed Sacrament and walk past Him begging in the street or suffering among the shut-ins."
