Duty of Delight
Dorothy Day was the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement. After being sealed for twenty-five years, the publication of her diaries offers a uniquely intimate portrait of her daily struggles and concerns. for almost fifty years, through her tireless service of the poor and her courageous witness for peace, she offered an extraordinary example of the gospel in action. these daily musings recount her story from 1934 to 1980. She displays a rare balance between radicalism and tradition, action and contemplation, the transcendent and the everyday. Ellsberg was a member of the Catholic Workers community in New York and is a careful and skilful editor.
