Dorothy Day—the disturbing “holy fool”
By guest blogger Kevin Considine
It is not easy to write about Dorothy Day. Gallons of ink have been spilled discussing her life and legacy. At this point, describing her as an inspirational Catholic woman has almost become trite. Hasn’t enough already been written? What about other women, such as Dolores Huerta, Kateri Tekakwitha, Sor Juana de la Cruz, St. Katherine Drexel, and many others? That’s not to mention the countless unsung heroines who work tirelessly to imitate Christ in their work and lives.
