Dorothy Day Pax 1963Dorothy Day: Saint or Troublemaker?

On his 2016 visit to the United States Pope Francis, addressing Congress, praised an American lay-woman, Dorothy Day, for her social activism and her passion for justice.

Dorothy Day was a prayerful woman, a faithful Catholic, and a woman devoted to the poorest in society. She was also unafraid to court controversy: an outspoken critic of governments and their wars she spent time in prison for her activism.

In this assembly we meet Dorothy Day: Saint and Troublemaker.
