I’ve just uploaded two rare interviews with the Catholic activist Dorothy Day. One was made for the Christophers –i.e., Christopher Closeup– and the other for WCVB-TV Boston .
Day had begun her service to the poor in New York City during the Depression with Peter Maurin, and it continued until her death in 1980. Their dedication to administering to the homeless, elderly, and disenfranchised continues with Catholic Worker homes in many parts of the world.
Please post or announce the availability of these videos for those who may be interested in hearing this remarkable lay minister.

@Dean – Thanks for this. Learning of Day’s life (and a couple of people like her in Europes) as a young man was a very formative experience.
