    I was happy to find that you have a website now…especially the cas and the newspaper. I have enjoyed the newspaper for several years. I can’t say that I am unalterably opposed to ALL war, but to most of them that I have ever read of or studied. Especailly I am opposed to thie present one, which I believe are steps of our country’s imperial ambitions.

    Thank you all for being there, and love to all

  1. Than you for your wonderful newspaper the “Agitator”. I am sending a subscription to all of my adult children. No where else can I find a newspaper that inspires such thought provoking information for Christians. I am so thankful for you work. All of our Lord’s blessing to all of you.

    I understand that the February 2012 CAtholic Agitator states therein somewhere that there was a new law signed by Obama that limits freedom to protest. Is this true and where is it written in the Agitator. February’s issue? it supposedly is signed off but will take effect 3/3.2012

    The LACW exudes the teachings of Christ day in and day out unceasingly. Their capacity to endure is far greater than satan’s capacity to inflict. They feed the hungry,they visit you in jail, they attend the infirm; go above and beyond mortal man’s call to duty. The host of heaven are watching above his own saying: “WellDone”! William E. King

    I was delighted to read that Cath Robson is back with you. I often think of my time I stayed with you back in 1996/7 and hope that one day our paths will cross again.
    Take care and God bless you all. Sue Robson

    In the near future I would like to visit Ammon Hennacy house. I am just starting to come back to the Church. I have been a Catholic since 1979 when I was 16 years from Simi Valley, CA. I was bapized at St. Rose of Lima Church. I just live on 1st and soto St. in Boyle Heights. Drop me a line.

    Sincerely – Glenn M. Ayala

  3. Half my family is catholic and the other half is Jewish. I have been to both church and synagogue and am glad to have met so many good people in LA.

    Hi! I’ve been receiving the Agitator for many years. Can I get it online? It’s difficult for me to read newsprint (I’m 81 and have AMD). Love you and all that you do! And that goes for my family as well.

    Dear Editors and Early Churchers:

    February’s issue provoked a minor outpouring of my tear ducts.

    The tears contained droplets of joy, gratitude, longing (for some of my now deceased CW pals like Roger O’Neil of NY) and humor with a dash of bittersweet tang.

    The Agitator is a national treasure on par with Sy Hersh, Tito Puente, the Marx Brothers, 1969 Mets, Yiddish, Brooklyn Dodgers, Dorothy Day, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, et al.

    My life is very different from yours. I don’t agree or give my consent to everything that is printed or done in Jesus name by Catholic Workers. Clarification of Thought requires listening, conversation, sharing and fellowship across life stories.

    So mazel tov from the self-appointed president of the Doroty Day Fan Club, Brooklyn Chapter

  1. […] The Catholic Agitator, the newspaper of the Los Angeles ¬†Catholic Worker, published a review of Liberating Biblical Study by Theo Kayser. The review contextualizes Liberating Biblical Study in the continuing tradition of “clarification of thought” as articulated by Catholic Worker co-founder Peter Maurin. […]
