Dorothy Day - Selected Writings
Edited and with an Introduction by Robert Ellsberg
Dorothy Day (1897-1980), co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, is one of the most inspiring figures of recent history. By her lifelong option for the poor and her devotion to active nonviolence, Day fashioned a new face for the gospel in our time. In 2000 the Vatican recognized her cause for canonization, and she was officially termed "Servant of God." To mark the occasion, Orbis issued this anniversary edition of Dorothy Day: Selected Writings, widely recognized as the essential and authoritative guide to her life and work.
"Let this become bedside reading for those who want to start a day moved to action, or end it with the sort of serenity that never forgets the world of need."
