Dorothy Day: a Rebel in Paradise

Dorothy Day is one of the most influential American figures of the 20th century. Through the Catholic Worker Movement, a collection of communities dedicated to hospitality and service to the poorest, which she co-founded, she fought all her life against exclusion, poverty, social and racial injustice. In a period marked by numerous world conflicts, she took a radical stand in favour of pacifism. She combined a life of prayer, inspired by the Bible and the saints, with a life of action at the heart of the social struggles of her time. With her, let us embrace this dynamic in the footsteps of Christ: "what we want to do is change the world".

Intercession du mois

Lord, with the example of Dorothy Day, we pray that we too may be bearers of unity and fraternity in the places where we live.

Give us the grace to care for the poorest around us and to dare commit ourselves, with courage, to just and peaceful causes.

We entrust to you all the places of social and racial injustice and conflict in our neighbourhoods, in our countries. Come and bring your peace, your joy, your grace to this world, Lord. Let your goodness be known on this earth.

Parole du mois

“For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me!” (…)” Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.”

Matthew 25, 35-36.40b
