Dorothy Day, a Witness for Today

Joe Bigham
Dorothy Day, 76-year-old editor of the Catholic Worker, is shown being led of to jail Aug. 10, 1973 at Fresno, Calif. after challenging court limits on United Farm Workers Union picketing a few days earlier. Miss Day said being jailed here is ‘paradise compared to others’ she’s seen in her half a century of militance.

EDITORIAL: The founder of the Catholic Worker Movement is a compelling witness of holiness, and hope, for our contemporary times.
