It’s hard to imagine where Dorothy Day would fit in today’s American political landscape. The former journalist who co-founded the Catholic Worker Movement was a committed Catholic who gave her life to the cause of the poor, yet also disdained government assistance.
She was both a radical pacifist who refused to pay taxes to support the U.S. military buildup, and a traditionalist who attended Mass daily and submitted herself to the all-male Catholic hierarchy.
Day’s ability to confound expectations is one reason why filmmaker Martin Doblmeier decided the potential saint would be a great subject for his new film.
