Hold Nothing Back: writings by Dorothy Day
Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was a well-known American journalist, activist, and Catholic convert whose cause for sainthood has been endorsed by the US bishops. She wrote numerous articles over a period of several decades for the prominent lay Catholic magazine Commonweal. Hold Nothing Back is gleaned from those writings.
It includes reflections on her life as a single mother, her time in jail for civil disobedience, her struggles to keep the Catholic Worker movement she co-founded afloat, and her travels on crowded buses to report from the front lines about labour disputes, racial inequality, and poverty. At the heart of whatever Day wrote lies a profound and prophetic faith. Hold Nothing Back gives a glimpse of her remarkable humanity and endurance, and of the vibrant spirituality that underlay them.
