From The Gaelic Starover
Among many other good recent entries (like this):

Remembering Dorothy Day
Who died 25 years ago today. This blog isn’t pacifist but her mix of traditional religion and work for peace and social justice — Catholic Action — is our guide. In the early C20, these people had the answers to modern problems.

Would I like to see her canonised? If and only if both parts of her message, named above, are promoted and practised, yes.

Many thanks to Katolik Shinja for the photo.

P.S. No, I’m not keen on attempts at iconography of people outside the Orthodox tradition. (Mixing rites is often a sign of theological liberalism.) Anybody can be privately venerated. In the end there is only one church, one kerygma, one dogma, but our mother the church respects (at least in theory) the integrity of her various rites.
