Dorothy Day Considered for Sainthood
Tue, 11-13-2012 - 9:38am

I noticed this story in my RSS feeds this morning:  http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/bishops-to-consider-sainthood-cause-of-dorothy-day/

I didn't know anything about her until reading this article.  She came to Catholicism later in life, had an atheist common law husband, and a child out of wedlock.  I imagine that was scandalous in the 1920s.  She was the founder of the Catholic Worker Movement and was an advocate for distributism.

Do you know much about Dorothy Day?
