Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. Recently the Vatican named her "Servant of God," the first step in the process of canonisation.
"Dorothy Day's mature assimilation of Th r se of Lisieux's spirituality is a vital legacy for the Catholic Worker Movement and for anyone whose life is dedicated to working for peace and justice." --James Allaire, The Catholic Worker
"Dorothy Day may not be remembered as one of Th r se's greatest biographers, but in Day, Th r se may well have found her most adept and significant student. On both a personal and a social level, she embraced the implications of Th r se's most famous words, 'All is grace.'" --From the foreword by Robert Ellsberg, Editor-in-chief of Orbis Books and former managing editor of The Catholic Worker "I feel honored to be able to pay this small bit of homage to a book by a saint of our day, Dorothy Day, whose love made her challenge the lie of what she always called 'this filthy rotten system, ' and enabled her to see deeply enough into another saint of our day to recognize a kindred spirit, though her life, on the surface, seemed so different from Dorothy's own." --From the afterword by John C. Cavadini, Theology professor and director of the Institute for Church Life, University of Notre Dame
