Dorothy Day: A Voice of Unity in a Time of Division 

"In his first encyclical, Lumen Fidei, Pope Francis eloquently affirmed the core teachings that animated Dorothy Day’s life:  “The light of faith is concretely placed at the service of justice…and peace,” he wrote.  Day embraced the totality of Catholic belief and practice, living a life of poverty.  When she sometimes challenged the Church, it was usually because she felt it had departed from Gospel principles, particularly when it came to the forgiveness of one’s enemies.  Labels of left or right, temptingly applied by liberals and conservatives alike, fail to explain or contain Dorothy Day.  Perhaps, ultimately, that’s why this woman of conscience is a saint for our time," (Dorothy Day Guild).
