Dorothy Day

"Let us reach out personally to the hungry and the homeless, to the poor and powerless, and to the troubles and the vulnerable. In serving them, we serve Christ. Our service efforts cannot substitute for... just public policies, but they can help us practice what we preach about human life and human dignity." -Economic Justice for All, U.S. Catholic Bishops

-During the war, especially the bombing of Pearl Habor, Day showed a profound respect for pacifism. Day refused to publish anything other than the word of God at this time causing her to lose supporters and 15 Houses of Hospitalities, but she remained authentic and true by never printing a word of support towards the war. -Day was not originally a Catholic, in fact her dad was very anti-catholic, but as she grew up and lived on her own she found her way to Chirst. -Day was a journalist, who was encouraged to create a newspaper column about Christian and its relations to her present day. This led to the creation of her "Catholic Worker" (shown above).-To follow in Day's footsteps of creating just and loving relationships I will continue to volunteer and strive to take part in different events, such as kicking it for cancer or other forms to show support to those who need it. May it be at a nursing home or at a softball game supporting my fellow classmates.

-Day's life displayed how God would want us all to live in a just and loving relationship with Him and one another, but one of the biggest ways was through her creation of House of Hospitality, designated homes that welcomes poor, vulnerable, and homeless.-Day's Houses of Hospitality and Farming communes gives those who are less fortunate that chance to earn an education and learn foundational living activites, such as farming, to create just societies. -By working for justice, Day has been able to demonstrate how God's love and mercy seeps through the work of justice. When Day creates homes to shelter those of the opresses, she shows God's love and mercy through a work of justice.

Working for Justice

"But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wiked." -Luke 6:35Grace Brandon


"It is easier to have faith that God will support each House of Hospitality and Farming Commune and supply our needs in the way of food and money to pay bills, than it is to keep a strong, hearty, living faith in each individual around us – to see Christ in him." -Dorothy Day
