Item description for Dorothy Day: Writings from Commonweal by Dorothy Day & Patrick Jordan...

Overview
Dorothy Day has been described as "the most significant, interesting, and influential person in the history of American Catholicism." Outside The Catholic Worker (which she edited from 1933 to her death), Day wrote for no other publication so often and over such an extended period-covering six decades-as the independent Catholic journal of opinion, Commonweal. Gathered here for the first time are Day's complete Commonweal pieces, including articles, reviews, and published letters-to-the-editor. They range from the personal to the polemical; from youthful enthusiasm to the gratitude of an aged warrior; sketches from works in progress; portraits of prisoners and dissidents; and a gifted reporter's dispatches from the flash points of mid-twentieth-century social and economic conflict. Day's writing offers readers not only an overview of her fascinating life but a compendium of her prophetic insights, spiritual depth, and unforgettable prose.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dorothy Day: Writings from Commonweal?

REVIEW FROM WHENCE WE COME TO SEE BY HER BRIGHT LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS WHERE WE NOW LONELY GO  May 26, 2007
Dorothy Day stands with Thomas Merton as one of the most influential and interesting American Catholic witnesses and writers of the Twentieth Century. Her writing both for the great Catholic magazine Commonweal and for the Catholic Worker newspaper ("still only a penny" and essential in any Catholic heart and household to call us back to our meaning and mission in the modern world) was prolific and eternal. Thus this collection of her articles and letters published in Commonweal are essential reading for any Catholic as we struggle honestly to live in our complicated nation. Dorothy Day now and ever lightens the way to Our LOrd and His Peace, Charity, Hope, Faith and Love.

These writings span over forty years from 1929 until 1973 and include reports of her missions to Mexico and to East Twelfth Street. Using this site's generous Search Inside feature reveals the titles of the 38 articles and a slight taste of their evolving flavor, but cannot replace hjolding this holy book, fruit of faith and action, in your own hands, in your own chapel, in your own room, and reading, slowly, thoughtfully, mindfully, in prayer. Dorothy comes through like a good strong holy friend, a loving mother, a thoughtful and prophetic professor of our Faith.

Indeed, this soft cover book published in Collegeville, a Benedictine town in Minnesota, by the great Catholic Liturgical Press, is physically a solid and sturdy and soft and gentle joy to hold and a comfort to read. Highly recommended for all Catholics and those who wish truly to know what it means to be Catholic in these Americas.
