Archbishop Dolan Pays Tribute To Dorothy Day

15-November-2010 -- Catholic World News Brief


Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York paid tribute to the Servant of God Dorothy Day (1897-1980), the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement., during Vespers on November 9. The service, which included music of Palestrina, Durufle, Sibelius, di Lasso, and Henry Purcell, took place in the Greenwich Village parish where Day often prayed.

“Dorothy Day is one of the most significant women in the life of the Church in the United States,” said Archbishop Dolan. “Dorothy's mission to the Church in every area-- social and legal reform, workers' rights, publications, her renowned pacifism, the ability to prophetically challenge even Church authority-- all of that found its taproot in prayer … Her activism was the fruit of a profound prayer that I would say bordered on the mystic.”

“Dorothy was a woman of the Church,” he added. “She loved being a Catholic. She loved the Catholic Church. I'm not talking about some nebulous, generic Church. She loved the one, holy, catholic, apostolic, Roman Church … She was proud to be Catholic.’
