Dorothy Day modeled lifelong hard work rooted in God’s love and freedom. Co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, servant of the poor, speaker of truth, and a radical advocate of peace, Day’s life combined tremendous passion to engage and change the world for the sake of the Gospel with a healthy perspective that such work would never really be over.
In House of Hospitality by Dorothy Day and Timothy D. Dolan, Day writes: “I must see the large and generous picture of a new social order wherein justice dwelleth. I must hold always in mind the new earth where God’s Will be done as it is in heaven. I must hold it in mind for my own courage and for yours.” She adds, “we are never going to be finished.”
