On Dorothy Day, Her Focus on the Neglected, and COVID-19

"Dorothy Day's need to connect with others and keep neglected people front and center would fit perfectly in the COVID-19 era.

"The 40th anniversary of the death of Day, the Chicago-based journalist, social-justice activist and co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, was the occasion of some online reflections on her life and career during a Nov. 29 webinar, which drew more than 2,000 registrants and was sponsored by the Dorothy Day Guild.

"'The struggle to contain her anger was her crucible of holiness,' said Robert Ellsberg, editor of several volumes of Day's writings."

A recent report in Catholic San Francisco offered a look at some of Dorothy Day's outreach activities and related issues.
