Dorothy Day November 8, — November 29, was an American journalist, social activist and anarchist who, after a bohemian youth, became a Catholic Christian without abandoning her social and anarchist activism.
She was perhaps the best-known political radical  in the American Catholic Church. Day's conversion is described in her autobiography, The Long Loneliness. In she was imprisoned as a member of suffragist Alice Paul 's nonviolent Silent Sentinels.
In the s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement , a pacifist movement that combines direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf.
She practiced civil disobedience , which led to additional arrests in ,  ,  and in at the age of seventy-five. In this newspaper, Day advocated the Catholic economic theory of distributism , which she considered a third way between capitalism and socialism. For that reason, the Church refers to her with the title of Servant of God.
Her parents were married in an Episcopal church in Greenwich Village. Day and a sister. In , her father, a sportswriter devoted to horse racing, took a position with a newspaper in San Francisco.
The family lived in Oakland, California until the San Francisco Earthquake of destroyed the newspaper's facilities, and her father lost his job. From the spontaneous response to the earthquake's devastation, the self-sacrifice of neighbors in a time of crisis, Day drew a lesson about individual action and the Christian community.
The family relocated to Chicago. Day's parents were nominal Christians who rarely attended church. As a young child, she showed a marked religious streak, reading the Bible frequently. When she was ten, she started to attend Church of Our Saviour, an Episcopal church in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, after its rector convinced her mother to let Day's brothers join the church choir.
She was taken with the liturgy and its music. She studied the catechism and was baptized and confirmed in that church in Day was an avid reader in her teens, particularly fond of Upton Sinclair 's The Jungle. She learned about anarchy and extreme poverty from Peter Kropotkin , who promoted a belief in cooperation in contrast to Darwin's competition for survival. Day graduated from Robert Waller High School in She was a reluctant scholar. She "smilingly explained to impatient socialists that she was 'a pacifist even in the class war.
When I read Tolstoy I was an Anarchist. My allegiance to The Call kept me a Socialist, although a left-wing one, and my Americanism inclined me to the I. She celebrated the February Revolution in Russia in , the overthrow of the monarchy and establishment of a reformist government. Sentenced to 30 days in jail, she served 15 days before being released, ten of them on a hunger strike. She spent several months in Greenwich Village, where she became close to Eugene O'Neill , whom she later credited with having produced "an intensification of the religious sense that was in me.
Initially, Day lived a bohemian life. In February ,  after ending an unhappy love affair with Lionel Moise, and after having an abortion that was "the great tragedy of her life,"  she married Berkeley Tobey in a civil ceremony.
She spent the better part of a year with him in Europe, removed from politics, focusing on art and literature, and writing a semi-autobiographical novel, The Eleventh Virgin , based on her affair with Moise. In its "Epilogue," she tried to draw lessons about the status of women from her experience: "I thought I was a free and emancipated young woman and found out I wasn't at all.
Freedom is just a modernity gown, a new trapping that we women affect to capture the man we want. She lived there from to , entertaining friends and enjoying a romantic relationship that foundered when she took passionately to motherhood and religion. Day, who had thought herself sterile following her abortion, was delighted to find she was pregnant in mid, while Batterham dreaded fatherhood. While she visited her mother in Florida, separating from Batterham for several months, she intensified her exploration of Catholicism.
When she returned to Staten Island, Batterham found her increasing devotion, attendance at Mass, and religious reading incomprehensible. Soon after the birth of their daughter Tamar Teresa, on March 4, , Day encountered a local Catholic religious sister , Sister Aloysia,  and with her help educated herself in the Catholic faith, and had her baby baptized in July Batterham refused to attend the ceremony. His relationship with Day became increasingly unbearable, as her desire for marriage in the Church confronted his antipathy to organized religion, Catholicism most of all.
After one last fight in late December, Day refused to allow him to return. On December 28, she underwent conditional baptism in the Catholic Church with Sister Aloysia as her godparent. A few months later, following the stock market crash, her contract was not renewed. She returned to New York via a sojourn in Mexico and a family visit in Florida. Day supported herself as a journalist, writing a gardening column for the local paper, the Staten Island Advance , and feature articles and book reviews for several Catholic publications, including Commonweal.
During one of her assignments for Commonweal in Washington, D. During the hunger strikes in D. She comments in her autobiography: "I could write, I could protest, to arouse the conscience, but where was the Catholic leadership in the gathering of bands of men and women together, for the actual works of mercy that the comrades had always made part of their technique in reaching the workers?
In , Day met Peter Maurin , the man she always credited as the founder of the movement with which she is identified. Maurin, a French immigrant and something of a vagabond, had entered the Brothers of the Christian Schools in his native France, before emigrating, first to Canada, then to the United States. Despite his lack of formal education, Maurin was a man of deep intellect and decidedly strong views.
He had a vision of social justice and its connection with the poor, which was partly inspired by St. Francis of Assisi. He had a vision of action based on sharing ideas and subsequent action by the poor themselves. Maurin was deeply versed in the writings of the Church Fathers and the papal documents on social matters that had been issued by Pope Leo XIII and his successors. Maurin provided Day with the grounding in Catholic theology of the need for social action they both felt.
Years later Day described how Maurin also broadened her knowledge by bringing "a digest of the writings of Kropotkin one day, calling my attention especially to Fields, Factories, and Workshops.
Day observed: "I was familiar with Kropotkin only through his Memoirs of a Revolutionist, which had originally run serially in the Atlantic Monthly. The Catholic Worker movement started when the Catholic Worker appeared on May 1, , priced at one cent, and published continuously since then. It was aimed at those suffering the most in the depths of the Great Depression, "those who think there is no hope for the future," and announced to them that "the Catholic Church has a social program. There are men of God who are working not only for their spiritual but for their material welfare.
Like many newspapers of the day, including those for which Day had been writing, it was an unapologetic example of advocacy journalism. It provided coverage of strikes and explored working conditions, especially women and African American workers, and explained papal teaching on social issues. Its advocacy of federal child labor laws put it at odds with the American Church hierarchy from its first issue. Still, Day censored some of Maurin's attacks on the Church hierarchy and tried to have a collection of the paper's issues presented to Pope Pius XI in The paper's principal competitor in distribution and ideology was the Communist Daily Worker.
Day opposed its atheism, its advocacy of "class hatred" and violent revolution, and its opposition to private property. The first issue of the Catholic Worker asked: "Is it not possible to be radical and not atheist? Day defended government relief programs like the Civilian Conservation Corps that the Communists ridiculed.
The Daily Worker responded by mocking the Catholic Worker for its charity work and expressing sympathy for landlords when calling evictions morally wrong. In this fight, the Church hierarchy backed Day's movement and Commonweal , a Catholic journal that expressed a wide range of viewpoints, said that Day's background positioned her well for her mission: "There are few laymen in this country who are so completely conversant with Communist propaganda and its exponents.
Cort and Harry Sylvester. Sylvester dedicated his fourth novel, Moon Gaffney , to Day and Cort. From the publishing enterprise came a " house of hospitality ", a shelter that provided food and clothing to the poor of the Lower East Side and then a series of farms for communal living. More than 30 independent but affiliated Catholic Worker communities had been founded by In , the Catholic Worker began publishing articles that articulated a rigorous and uncompromising pacifist position, breaking with the traditional Catholic doctrine of just war theory.
The next year, the two sides that fought the Spanish Civil War roughly approximated two of Day's allegiances, with the Church allied with Franco fighting radicals of many stripes, the Catholic and the worker at war with one another. Day refused to follow the Catholic hierarchy in support of Franco against the Republican forces, which were atheist and anticlerical in spirit, led by anarchists and communists that is, the Republican forces were.
We must prepare now for martyrdom — otherwise, we will not be ready. Who of us, if he were attacked now, would not react quickly and humanly against such attack? Would we love our brother who strikes us? Of all at The Catholic Worker, how many would not instinctively defend himself with any forceful means in his power? We must prepare. We must prepare now. There must be a disarmament of the heart.
The paper's circulation fell as many Catholic churches, schools, and hospitals that had previously served as its distribution points withdrew support. In , she published an account of her political activism transformation into religiously motivated activism in From Union Square to Rome. She recounted her life story selectively, without providing the details of her early years of "grievous mortal sin" when her life was "pathetic, little, and mean.
What I want to bring out in this book is a succession of events that led me to His feet, glimpses of Him that I received through many years, which made me feel the vital need of Him and of religion. I will try to trace for you the steps by which I came to accept the faith that I believe was always in my heart.
In the early s, she affiliated with the Benedictines , in professing as an oblate of St. Procopius Abbey , in Lisle, Illinois. This gave her a spiritual practice and connection that sustained her throughout the rest of her life. She was briefly a postulant in the Fraternity of Jesus Caritas, which was inspired by the example of Charles de Foucauld. When she withdrew as a candidate for the Fraternity, she wrote to a friend: "I just wanted to let you know that I feel even closer to it all, tho it is not possible for me to be a recognized 'Little Sister,' or formally a part of it.
Day reaffirmed her pacifism following the U. We must renounce war as an instrument of policy. Even as I speak to you, I may be guilty of what some men call treason.
