This section is devoted to the writings and life of Dorothy Day who co-founded the Catholic Worker Movement with Peter Maurin in 1933.

Dorothy Day’s writings are now available on a companion website—the Dorothy Day Collection at .

Included are all 721 of her articles from The Catholic Worker newspaper and four books to browse, search, and download. In addition, there are groupings of articles by certain themes available as a PDF or ePub booklet.

The Dorothy Day Collection is formatted to read equally well on a computer screen, tablet, or smart phone.

Prayer For The Canonization
of Servant of God
Dorothy Day

Merciful God, you called your servant
Dorothy Day to show us the face of
Jesus in the poor and forsaken.
By constant practice
of the works of mercy,
she embraced poverty and witnessed
steadfastly to justice and peace.
Count her among your saints
and lead us all to become friends of
the poor ones of the earth,
and to recognize you in them.
We ask this through your Son
Jesus Christ, bringer of good news
to the poor. Amen
