The Long Loneliness, by Dorothy Day, is a compelling testament to her life of social activism and her spiritual pilgrimage. A founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and longtime associate of Peter Maurin, Dorothy Day was eulogized in the New York Times as “a nonviolent social radical of luminous personality.”
The Story of a Soul, by Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, is a spiritual classic and is one of the most beautiful autobiographies ever written. Sister Thérèse wrote this autobiography out of obedience to Mother Agnes of Jesus (her religious superior and sister, Pauline). Her autobiography reveals her deep love of God and draws the reader into the beautiful workings of grace within her soul.
