Michael L. Gaudoin-Parker,
Dorothy Day does not float above us as someone too pious and holy for us to hope to emulate. Instead, Dorothy Day writes as a fellow human sojourner who wrestles with passions, anger, temptations, failures, and the audacity to believe she could make a difference. As I read her prayerful meditations and prophetic exhortations, I feel that it is also possible for me to be used by God in some real way.
She never deviates from her commitment to the "Consistent Life Ethic." Rather than allowing her views to be shaped by political ideology, Dorothy Day determined her stance on the issues by simply asking whether it affirmed human life or undermined and denied human life. That's why she could oppose war, capitalistic exploitation, atheistic communism, the death penalty, and abortion with equal clarity. Her words present equal challenge for those on the political left and the political right. At the heart of it all, Dorothy Day asks us to see Christ in our fellow man - whether they be ally or enemy, rich or poor, Black or White, born or unborn.
