Synopsis

Dorothy Day connected radical faith with doing radical deeds. Beginning from her discovery of God in the Word when she was eight years old, Michael Boover shares Dorothy's reflections about her pilgrimage to the daily discipline of readiness and openness to God in her life, especially to God in her neighbour. He shares her words on why and how she prays, on her preference for frequent confession, on her intentional choice of suffering and poverty, and on her desire to imitate the saints and to make sanctity the norm of everyone's life. In these 15 days, we see how Dorothy's discipline gave her true freedom. In particular, it allowed her to give priority to Love - to take the most direct route to God by loving her neighbour. She recognized "the paucity of her own best spiritual efforts and took refuge in the fact that God would do for believers what they could not fully do for themselves." Boover's practical exercises emulate Day's own temperament. They push you to live with more integrity and deeper love, and they show a deep compassion for the difficulty of the challenge. ABOUT THE SERIES: Spiritual journeys are best experienced with a guide.

"15 Days of Prayer" provides such direction from foundational spiritual figures. Each volume in the series contains: A brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume A guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat 15 meditations sessions with focus points and reflection guides

Michael Boover has been connected to the Catholic Worker movement since the early 70s when he met Dorothy Day and Catholic Worker priest Bernard E. Gilgun. Michael joined other young Catholic Workers in Central Massachusetts doing the works of mercy in a storefront and later house of hospitality in the city of Worcester and at the "House of Ammon" farm commune in Hubbardston. He also lived at the Catholic Worker Farm in Sheep Ranch, California. Michael currently lives and works at "Annunciation House of Worcester," a household blending Franciscan, Benedictine (Cistercian) and Catholic Worker influences. He and his wife, Diane, have four adult children who inspire and entertain.
