On Pilgrimage

February 1946

I am selecting a new name for my column, since there are Day After Days and Notes By the Way in other papers. We should always be thinking of ourselves as pilgrims anyway.

When things get tough, I like to recall St. Teresa’s "Life is a night spent in an uncomfortable inn." And from the gay way she wrote of her adventures, she agreed also with St. Catherine of Sienna, who said: "All the Way to Heaven is Heaven, for He said, I am the Way."

September 1956

People always fall back on the phrase, "It is the system." We need to change the system. We need to overthrow, not the government, as the authorities are always accusing the Communists "of conspiring to teach to do," but this rotten, decadent, putrid industrial capitalist system which breeds such suffering in the whited sepulcher of New York.

Loaves and Fishes

The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us? When we begin to take the lowest place, to wash the feet of others, to love our brothers with that burning love, that passion, which led to the Cross, then we truly say, "Now I have begun."
