ST PAULS - Dorothy Day - Beck, Fr Ashley

Dorothy Day

By Beck, Fr Ashley (Author)
$6.95 AUD

A controversial figure in life, and even in death, there are many who believe Dorothy Day, who died in 1980, to be a modern day saint. An American journalist and political activist who converted to Catholicism following a profound existential crisis in her late twenties, Day founded the Catholic Worker Movement and Newspaper, and dedicated her life to the cause of peace, opposition to nuclear weapons and service of the poor. In 2000, Rome recognised the cause for her beatification. This booklet unravels the life, times and thought of this most amazing of women, who passed through despair, crises and opposition to find the Risen Lord. Fr Ashley Beck is Assistant Priest of Beckenham in the Archdiocese of Southwark. He is also Dean of Studies of the Permanent Diaconate Formation Programme for ten dioceses in southern England and Wales, and Chair of the national Conference of Diaconate Directors and Deacon Delegates.
