In the Name of the Staff

In the name of the staff of The Catholic Worker, Peter Maurin, Adé Béthune, William Callahan, Joe Zarrella, Gerald Griffin and Edward Priest, I write to assure you of our prayers on your fifteenth anniversary. We are grateful to you for all the pioneering work you have done in the past, and for all the help the editors personally and through their columns have given us.

You remember that Peter Maurin always says that it is the duty of the journalist to make history as well as record it. May The Commonweal continue to have the influence on its times that it has had in the past.
