Item Description...
A biography of the extraordinary woman who was great social activist, tireless advocate for the poor, and founder of the Catholic Worker movement. Ages 9 and up.

Publishers Description
Young adult readers as well as adults will be fascinated by this biography of Dorothy Day, the controversial and celebrated Catholic activist, who has been proposed for canonization as a Saint of the Church. Dorothy Day embraced many causes: the poor, non-violent social change, the Civil Rights Movement, suffragism and pacifism. The co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement that began as a newspaper for Catholic social teaching and flowered into nation-wide communities of "hospitality" for the needy, the "most influential lay Catholic in the history of American Catholicism" who received the Laetare and Gandhi medals and was instrumental in Vatican Council II's adoption of a resolution that supported conscientious objectors and condemned "indiscriminate destruction," was also a friend of communists, atheists, and socialists. She was also a single mother, divorcee, the recipient of an abortion who converted to Catholicism and baptized her daughter in the Church. She marched with Cesar Chavez, became a model to the Berrigans, received a visit from Mother Teresa and communion from Pope Paul VI, and lived in voluntary abject poverty. Her life could be thought of as one of contradictions, were it not for the very important observation that hers was a life spent in conscious imitation of the Gospel, but not along the straight and narrow, as Elaine Murray Stone so convincingly shows.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An involving presentation of a most remarkable woman  Jan 12, 2005
Dorothy Day: Champion of the Poor is the biography of one of the most respected yet controversial laypersons in modern-day Catholic spirituality. Dorothy Day's life, from the transgressions of her wild youth to her conversion and even radical activism, is covered in this narrative account, illustrated with black-and-white artwork. A straightforward and involving presentation of a most remarkable woman, who has just recently been formally entered into the Church's canonization process.
