June 2020 Meeting
Sometime before Wednesday, June 24, the fourth Wednesday of June, please take the opportunity to watch for free the new Dorothy Day documentary, Revolution of the Heart: The Dorothy Day Story. You will find it at this link: It is the 57 minute film on that site.
At our June meeting, we will have a Zoom gathering to talk to each other about this film. If you want to join us, I will have Zoom open for you to come on as early as 6:30 pm for a chat and the meeting will begin at 7:00.
But, you must let me know ahead of time if you plan to join us (just reply to this email) so that I can send you the link to get into our meeting. I will send the link to the zoom to you on Tuesday, June 23. Some of you have already told me that you want to participate, but it might be a good idea to remind me. If you have trouble getting on, please call me at 214-384-8894.
It really is excellent. I have watched it twice and intend on seeing it again before our meeting.
Maybe we will be able to relate our experience with the Corona Virus and how we might like a change of heart for our country and planet. Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin are excellent examples to guide us—–how to use their example?
Also, along with it, here is an article in the New Yorker Magazine about that documentary. After seeing and reading, we should be up on the Catholic Worker movement. Perhaps you know that one of Dorothy Day’s granddaughters, Martha Hennessey is one of the Seven Plowshares awaiting sentencing on June 28 for her participation of the nonviolent action against nuclear weapons.
Here is the site for the article on the documentary.
Hope you all are doing well and are being able to fill your day with good thoughts.
