Item description for Meet Dorothy Day : Champion of the Poor by Woodeene Koenig-Bricker...
Overview Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker movement, once declared: "Don't call me a saint. I don't want to be dismissed that easily." Nevertheless, the cause for her canonization began in 2000, and her prophetic example remains a provocative challenge to the status quo that cannot be easily dismissed. This intriguing biography of the highly controversial journalist and social activist draws from her voluminous writings and the testimony of people who knew her well. It explores the connections between Day's formidable public achievements and her private life of prayer, Scripture study, and devotion to the Sacraments. The result is a stirring portrait of a champion of justice for the poor and oppressed who worked tirelessly to awaken the conscience of a nation.
