I'm not so sure about his conclusion, though, that the seeds of renewal are found in the pro-life movement. A lot of people joined Dorothy Day during the 60s because of the Vietnam War. And a lot of them -- among them, Ammond Hennessey, a well-known Catholic worker -- left after the sixties were over.
