About Book

Catholic Women's Network Magazine
“Dorothy Day’s passion for social justice caused the FBI to keep files on her activities…”

Book Description
Newly available and expanded, the diary of a 20th-century leader in the fight for social justice--Dorothy Day.

ON PILGRIMAGE gathers diary entries written by Dorothy Day in 1948 that intimately reveal both Day's spiritual life and the personal ideals that guided her tenacious pursuit of social justice. When Dorothy Day sat down to record her thoughts in diary form, she wrote not only as the leader of the Catholic Worker movement but also as a mother, a grandmother, and a deeply religious woman concerned for even the mundane facets of life. But whether describing day-to-day happenings or the writings of the saints, Day's reflections return to her abiding theme--the call to personal and public transformation. Her diary entries touch on numerous social and moral concerns still vital in our day: the disenfranchised poor, the benefits of meaningful work, the significance of family, the dangers of secularization, the decline of moral standards, and the importance of faith. Available for the first time since its limited printing in 1948, ON PILGRIMAGE is published here with a foreword by Mich! ael O. Garvey and a significant introduction by Mark and Louise Zwick that highlights Day's early life and her commitment to the Catholic Worker movement.
