In this new collection of essays, Jeff Dietrich looks back over more than forty years as a member of the Los Angeles Catholic Worker community serving the poor on L.A.’s Skid Row. By exploring the theme of what it means to be “A Good Samaritan” he asks: “Who is my Neighbor?” “Am I my brother’s keeper?” and finally, “What does it mean spend a lifetime as a Catholic Worker?”
