Dorothy Day may soon be canonized, but she was anything but a paper saint. A bohemian in her early years and impassioned activist against injustice, she spent time in jail for civil disobedience even as she worked tirelessly to create shelters, community, a journal, even an entire movement around care for and identification with the poor. Hers was a circuitous route to faith, punctuated by doubt, loss, labor, and loneliness. The Long Loneliness is her memoir of spiritual and vocation struggle and evolution, as well as a grateful reflection on “our Lord, and his visit to us all those centuries ago…[and] my great luck to have had Him on my mind for so long in my life.”
We think you’ll find Day’s reflections to be both provocative and stirring, and to offer reflection on the great gift of the Incarnation, which we celebrate this Advent season.
