The three books in this special collection shine a bright light on mercy, sacrifice, and kindness toward the unlovable, the outcast, and the marginalized. The connections between the works are surprising. In Mr. Blue, a 1928 novel, the main character exemplifies radical generosity by forgoing fortune for love of Lady Poverty. That same outpouring of self is found in Dorothy Day’s House of Hospitality, real-life reflections on the beginning of the Catholic Worker Movement. Finally, at the heart of St. Francis’ and Pope Francis’ teaching is that embracing poverty can lead to healing and restoration in a broken world. Three important works all Catholics should read.
