Miracles of Mercy

ROSE MARIE BERGER'S article on Dorothy Day's eventual canonization ("Don't Call Me a Saint!" July-August 2000) delighted me. Day has been one of my intercessors in heaven. Even my getting a copy of Sojourners came from her. St. John Macias, O.P., did not have the usual "healing" or medical miracle for his canonization; his miracle was the feeding of orphans in the midst of a famine-stricken area.

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
