Dorothy Day lived in a time of great change in the Church and in society. She chose a way of life that most would find difficult, even impossible.
Dorothy Day: “To become a Catholic meant for me to give up a mate with whom I was much in love. I chose God and I lost Forster.”
When religion is being warred upon, our Catholic young people still come from schools and colleges and talk about looking for security, a weekly wage.
The very fact that people are always burying Distributism is evidence of the fact that it is not dead as a solution.
Our conversations must of necessity be elliptical and disjointed what with swing shifts, hours of work, duties on four acres, wife and six children.
Dorothy Day repudiates John Cort and other Catholics who see Distributism as an agrarian visionary dream.
Dorothy did not only write about Distributism, she did Distributism. She helped people become self-sufficient.
