Dorothy Day was on a mission: to build a new world “wherein justice dwelleth.” She championed the causes of the poor, the worker and the marginalized. Houses of hospitality and a socially critical newspaper, which she founded during the Depression, are still active worldwide. For her radical ardor she was both denounced as a communist whore and revered as a saint.

 
We can to a certain extent change the world; We can work for the oasis, the little cell of joy and peace in a harried world. We can throw our pebble in the pond and be confident that its ever-widening circle will reach around the world.
— Dorothy Day
