Entertaining Angels - 1996
 
Character:   Peter Maurin
 
The story of social activist Dorothy Day and her work with the Catholic Worker movement in the 1920's and 1930's.  This film captures much of the real-life drama that took place on big city streets, her dedication to helping the poor, and the very personal trials which eventually led Dorothy to convert to Roman Catholicism.
 
The phrase "entertaining angels" refers to the practice of treating all guests, whether kings or peasants, as if they were visiting angels.   This is the challenge for all humble Christians and the one Dorothy Day strove to meet.
