I’ve been meaning to learn more about Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement but never got around to it until now. I was reading something today, and it said that St. Therese and Dorothy Day were like complete opposites. I learned that St. Therese of Lisieux was Day’s favorite saint and that she even wrote a biography of her, which I just purchased a copy of online and am now waiting for it to ship. Does anyone know of any good resources about Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker. I’ve checked out the website but there isn’t much there. I know that there is a cause for her canonization underway and that she is titled a Servant of God at this time. Also, I know that one of the Ask the Apologist questions was answered with a suggestion that people trying to quite smoking pray for Day’s intercession because she was a heavy smoker for much of her life. I told my mom to ask Dorothy to pray for her, because she desparately wants to quit smoking.
Thanks for any of your knowledge here.
God bless you all,
