Pope Francis Gives a Shout Out to the Catholic Worker before Congress

Most Catholic Workers have at some point been to the Capitol to witness against government policies that denigrate the dignity of life. Heck, many of us have been arrested in nonviolent acts of civil disobedience at the Capitol for saying some of the same the things Pope Francis told Congress in his historic address on September 24th. It was a remarkable feeling of joy, pride and vindication to hear the pope condemn the Death Penalty and the arms trade yesterday while holding up Servant of God Dorothy Day as a model Catholic and a model American.
