Dorothy Day


Dorothy Day

Dorothy Day (1897-1980)

Co-founder of the Catholic Worker, she was a voice of conscience in the 20th century

“…her commitment to justice, to freedom and to peace, her resistance to the kingdoms of this world, and her unflinching commitment to the belief that love will redeem the world Dorothy had a dream of this Truth, the dream became a vision, and the vision became a light for the world.”

From the eulogy given by Geoffrey B. Gneuhs, O.P., at the funeral of Dorothy Day, Nativity Church, New York City, December 2, 1980.
