What Money Can't Buy

What we would like to do is change the world – make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended them to do. And to a certain extent, by fighting for better conditions, by crying out unceasingly for the rights of the workers, of the poor, of the destitute . . . we can to a certain extent change the world; we can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world.
Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker Movement
1897–1980
The Bruderhof re-acquired the Sannerz House in 2002. The original Bruderhof community was here from 1920 to 1927.
