Fr. James Martin, S.J. On The Sacramental And Holy Aspects Of Common Law Marriage

Forester Batterham and Dorothy Day
I encourage you to read Robert Ellsberg's fascinating look at the love letters of Dorothy Day, which will appear in the print edition of our Culture section next week. 
Somewhat unusual in the writings of a soon-to-be-saint, these frank (and sometimes frankly romantic) letters to the man who would be (and was) her common-law husband Forester Batterham are remarkable for what they tell us about love, about sanctity and about Dorothy Day.  
Ellsberg's fascinating article, "Dorothy in Love," ; excerpts from the letters themselves are here.

You cannot make this stuff up. I pray for Fr. Martin SJ. Nothing so blinds like sin...
