LOVE IS THE ANSWER: THE EMBODIED SPIRITUALITY OF DOROTHY DAY

An introduction to the extraordinary story of Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker

newspaper, and its Houses of Hospitality. While the material presented will provide a

snapshot into Dorothy’s background, journey and legacy, the emphasis will be on the

degree to which Dorothy embodied everything in which she believed. It is hoped that

reflecting on the complexity, paradox and commitment of Dorothy Day can be a source of

hope and inspiration to each of us as we search for the path in our journey through life.

“Haunted by God” – Childhood and family background.

“Radical Choices” – Searching for meaning and happiness.

“On Pilgrimage” – Ministry and legacy.
