Dorothy Day was a lot of things, but is she a Saint? By her own words, we should save her from the honor. She once bluntly said, ‘don’t call me a Saint!’. Maybe to spite her own wishes, Dr. John Cavadini, Director of the McGrath Institute for Church Life, is delivering a public lecture on the co-founder of the Catholic Worker movement, Dorothy Day, as part of our Institute’s Saturdays with the Saints Series. So we want to talk to him about that to find out what Dorthy Day meant, what the Saint mean, how we miss the Saints, how we can learn to see and love the Saints better, and how the Church needs Saints today.
In addition to serving for two decades as the Director of the Institute, Dr. Cavadini is also Professor of Theology and former chair of the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame. On top of lots of other initiatives, and preparing this very lecture on Dorothy Day, he is also hosting conference marking the 50th anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI, that is Joseph Ratzinger’s classic text, “Introduction to Christianity’ in the coming week.
