New York City, N.Y., Dec 10, 2021 / 18:00 pm
More than a dozen boxes containing evidence of Servant of God Dorothy Day’s reputation for holiness are on their way to the Vatican, after a Mass this week in New York City marked the end of two decades of diocesan work on Day’s sainthood cause.
Day, who died in New York City in 1980, was an advocate for the poor and the founder of the Catholic Worker movement. The Archdiocese of New York, with permission from St. John Paul II, opened her sainthood cause in 2000.
I hope you’ve heard of Servant of God Dorothy Day - and if not, let’s change that! She’s one of the radiant stars in Catholic America. Here’s my Homily from the Young Adult Holy Hour and Mass on Wednesday: https://t.co/vgyL3RopHX— Cardinal Dolan (@CardinalDolan) December 10, 2021
Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York celebrated the Mass on Dec. 8, during which 17 cardboard boxes containing papers and evidence in support of Day’s cause sat at the front of the church, tied shut with red ribbons.
