What is it about Dorothy Day that always grabs me? It's not really that she espoused the causes of my generation (nuclear disarmament, civil rights, an end to the war in Vietnam). In fact, her Commie leanings annoy me often, now that I'm an "old-fashioned Catholic."
And yet. She is so honest and convincing, and her works of mercy were unarguable. This book recounts the history of the Catholic Worker movement, really from her encounter with the enigmatic itinerant preacher Peter Maurin. I expect to blow through it in a few days.
Read information about the authorDorothy Day was an American journalist, social activist, and devout Catholic convert. In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker movement, a nonviolent, pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf.
A revered figure within the U.S. Catholic community, Day's cause for canonization is open in the Catholic Church.
