Dorothy, pray for us
This day in 1980, which was a Saturday and the last day in Ordinary time, just before sunset, the servant of God Dorothy Day passed from this life to life true and eternal. Deacon Tom Cornell said when he spoke at my parish earlier this year, just in time to celebrate the new year in heaven.
Dorothy was the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, newspaper (which still sells at a penny a copy!), and communities.
