The causes for the canonization of both Catherine de Hueck Doherty and Dorothy Day have been opened with the trust that, with the grace of God, these two great laywomen saints will one day be recognized by the Church as outstanding Saints (with a capital S) of God. The friendship of these two was very deep, holy, and lasting. If they hadn’t been so united in Christ in the lay apostolic movements they were responsible for (Madonna House and the Catholic Worker Movement) out of zeal for the Kingdom of God, their differences might not have drawn them together in any kind of relationship approaching friendship. They had quite different personalities and approaches to almost everything. Their relationship, however, as proved by the correspondence between them over many years (published for the first time in this book), is a profound example of how Christ can bind together people of very diverse temperaments and backgrounds and unite them in love by the power of the Holy Spirit, thus inspiring us all.
