  1. The title of Dorothy Day’s autobiography, The Long Loneliness, was inspired by a phrase in the writings of Blessed Mary Ward, an English nun, born in 1585, in the later years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. “I think, dear child, the trouble and the long loneliness you hear me speak of is not far from me, whensoever it is, happy success will follow. The pain is great, but very endurable, because He who lays on the burden also carries it.”
