The Word Among Us

A Radical Love,
Wisdom from Dorothy Day

Patricia Mitchell, Editor

This Catholic lay woman, whose cause for canonization was advanced by the late Cardinal John O’Connor, awakened the nation to the plight of the poor and downtrodden. This unique selection of writings emphasizes how her passionate love for Jesus compelled her to lay down her life for others.

Few people have had such an impact on my life, even though we never met. . . . Surely, if any woman ever loved God and her neighbor, it was Dorothy Day.

The late Cardinal John O’Connor of New York

This new collection of writings by Dorothy Day illuminates why many consider her to be a saint. Each selection reveals Day at her reflective best. In clear and common sense terms she links her deep faith in God’s providence with personal and concrete actions of love. . . . Her spirituality is a beacon for our times.

Jim Allaire, co-author of Praying with Dorothy Day

Dorothy Day is already a saint to those of us who knew her and loved her. This book should inspire, encourage, and challenge us to live more simply and share more deeply in our lives. It will lead us to deeper prayer with Christ, which should help us to work for a more just and loving world.

Father John Adams, Executive Director, So Others Might Eat (SOME), Washington, D. C.
