November 8 was Dorothy Day's one hundred and eleventieth birthday.

And she, a woman of many wise words, has something to say that we need to hear:

"People say, What good can one person do? What is the sense of our small effort? They cannot see that we must lay one brick at a time. We can be responsible only for the one action of the present moment. But we can beg for an increase of love in our hearts that will vitalize and transform all our individual actions, and know that God will take them and multiply them, as Jesus multiplied the loaves and the fishes.”
