“My love of peace and quiet inclines me always to want to do nothing. This drag to take my ease is like the pull of gravity. Will it always be so? My first impulse is always to say no. God forgive me for this unwillingness which pollutes all my actions.”
Dorothy Day has a knack of speaking to us. Of course, a family member once accused me of “never wanting to do anything,” so maybe Day doesn’t speak to all of us. Either way, it feels good to be in such company.
