Why This Issue:

The theme of this issue may seem an oddity to readers who know of the

Christian anarchism tenets of the Catholic Worker tradition. But the Worker has

always been a strong advocate of personal responsibility, the deeper value

underlying Law. So we hope this issue will provide an illustrative interplay

between law and responsibility. An unavoidable and if immediate responsibility is Central America, so we have included two pieces on that topic: a photo essay and an opportunity for concrete action. We close with words from each of the three Catholic Worker houses.


We can think of no better way to begin than with these reflections from a

person in prison.
