A life of peace

“Near the end of (Dorothy) Day’s life, Robert Coles asked her if she had any plans to write a memoir. She was a gorgeous and prolific writer, so it was a natural question to ask. She told Coles that she had once thought of doing that, and had pulled out a piece of paper and wrote ‘A Life Remembered.’ Then, ‘I just sat there and thought of our Lord, and his visit to us all those centuries ago, and I said to myself that my great luck was to have had Him on my mind for so long in my life’ She felt no need to write anything.

What must such peace and tranquility feel like?” — David Brooks, The Second Mountain
