Since 1998, Sarah has chosen to perform exclusively in Fool for Christ.
Many people have told me that seeing Fool for Christ has been a life changing experience for them. It has been for me. Learning about Dorothy Day-her enormous capacity for unconditional love, her devotion to and trust in God, her compassion for the worker, the poor and the homeless, the sick, the prisoner, her commitment to non-violence and carrying out the works of mercy, are important lessons for me and the audience.
It seems wherever I perform Fool for Christ I meet someone who will share their experience with Dorothy, something that is moving, something that is personal that brings me closer to her.
On my journey with Dorothy Day I have met so many wonderful faith-filled people, each one special. I am grateful to the many people and organizations who have hosted me. I have visited many hospitality houses, I have more to go. There are over 180 Catholic Worker Houses around the world.
