Review of “The Duty of Delight, the Diaries of Dorothy Day

The Duty of Delight: The Diaries of Dorothy DayThe Duty of Delight: The Diaries of Dorothy Day by Dorothy Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Dorothy Day has become one of the famous lay American Catholics. In 1933, with Peter Maurin, she co-founded the Catholic Worker movement; a movement whose aim was to remake American society; socially, and economically, in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This diaries gives one a look into the mind, heart and soul of Dorothy Day, during the many decades she guided, and inspired the CW movement.

It provides a intimate portrait of an activist, organizer, writer, mystic, mother and grandmother. And also allows one to encounter the very human person that was Dorothy Day.
