About Dorothy Day

George Weigel writes in his book Practicing Catholic:

Despite her political myopia about the likes of Fidel Castro, the Catholic radicalism of Dorothy Day was far more Catholic in its sense of the drama of sin and grace than the vapid liberalism that dominated the post-Vatican II Church.

Dorothy Day is all too often misunderstood and the depths of her faith are not fully appreciated by us today. That ought to change. It may.

It’s a dangerous thing when politics tries to co-opt holiness.
