Who is Dorothy Day
Dorothy Day, was an American journalist, social activist, and devout Catholic convert. In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf. She served as editor of the Catholic Worker newspaper from 1933 until her death in 1980.
Dorothy Day believed in the works of mercy (feed the hungry,shelter the homeless, clothe the naked, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned) as the most direct form of Christian action.
