Dorothy Day led the epitome of a radical life…and now you can carry (or frame) a reminder of this woman whose legacy still remains a powerful example of Catholic Social Teaching! Designed in the style of classic baseball cards, these “heavy cards” from Spirit Juice are crafted from artisan-grade 32pt (380lb) cardstock and are designed to take a beating, endure some wear, and survive the little hands of our saints in training (our children, of course)! What can I say? We’re passionate about paper…and quality…and evangelization!
Our small and medium prints don't just look good, they feel good...exuding a tangible quality and long-lasting reminder of Dorothy Day’s message. The small size is exactly credit card-sized, meaning it will easily fit in a wallet or as a bookmark in your bible, hymnal, liturgy of the hours, or missal. The medium size is perfect for framing, but they'll also sit nicely on a desk or keep your page in your favorite book all while maintaining their structural rigidity and standing up to recurring use and daily life (unlike lesser-quality paper stocks). On the back of these small and medium prints, we include a beautifully designed reminder of the saint's life; their birth and death, notable information, and a reminder of why we look to them as examples of holiness and Godliness. Stickers are permanent vinyl stickers that are dishwasher safe and designed to withstand some abuse!
This design is part of our "20th Century Visionaries" collection.

Bio: Dorthy Day led a radical life. Early on, she practiced severe mortification. And then she abandoned it all to become a marxist, even having multiple affairs and an abortion. It was Dorthy Day’s passion for helping the poor that led her back to the Church. With the help of Peter Maurin, a French immigrant and former Christian Brother, she started the Catholic Worker newspaper and a movement of hospitality houses. She lived in the slums of New York City, working for non-violence and radical social change. Dorthy Day not only helped the poor, but she was a great original thinker, journalist, and spiritual writer. She died among the poor, whom she served so greatly. Today, 187 Catholic Worker communities remain committed to nonviolence, voluntary poverty, prayer, and hospitality for the homeless, exiled, hungry, and forsaken. Catholic Workers continue to protest injustice, war, racism, and violence of all forms.
