Dorothy Day used her voice to make space for the marginalized and encounter Christ in those who lived at the margins. Her life—marked by justice and solidarity—serves as a reminder of the gospel message. Let it inspire you to donate time, money, or prayers to continuing the mission of peacemaking that marked Dorothy’s life.
God at the margins, you who know the names and the faces
of the poor, the oppressed, the marginalized:
May we encounter you at the margins.
May we resist the temptation of power
that comes at the cost of the other.
And may we come to encounter your heart
in our marginalized brothers and sisters.
Let there come forth from your heart and our hearts
rivers of justice that give us all everlasting life.
Today, spend some time learning about Dorothy Day’s legacy, the Catholic Worker Movement.
