      If you want your friend to be influenced by the Australian version of

      the movement first look at this news report

      http://www.cathnews.com/article.aspx?aeid=15062



      I'm not convinced they are very good representatives (See below)



      Phillip Chalmers

      Catholic doctor Rural and Remote Australia



      Beliefs of the Catholic Worker



      "Our rule is the works of mercy," said Dorothy Day. "It is the way of

      sacrifice, worship, a sense of reverence."



      According to co-founder Peter Maurin, the following are the beliefs of

      the Catholic Worker:[5]



      gentle personalism of traditional Catholicism.

      personal obligation of looking after the needs of our brother.

      daily practice of the Works of Mercy.

      Houses of Hospitality for the immediate relief of those who are in need.

      establishment of Farming Communes where each one works according to his

      ability and gets according to his need.

      creating a new society within the shell of the old [6]with the

      philosophy of the new, which is not a new philosophy but a very old

      philosophy, a philosophy so old that it looks like new!



      The radical philosophy of the group can be described as Christian

      anarchism.[7] Anne Klejment, a history lecturer at University of St.

      Thomas, wrote of the Catholic Worker Movement:



      The Catholic Worker considered itself a Christian anarchist movement.

      All authority came from God; and the state, having by choice distanced

      itself from Christian perfectionism, forfeited its ultimate authority

      over the citizen...Catholic Worker anarchism followed Christ as a model

      of nonviolent revolutionary behavior...He respected individual

      conscience. But he also preached a prophetic message, difficult for many

      of his contemporaries to embrace.[8]
