In the Name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
O God, Who by the life of Dorothy Day of New York
has given us examples of
Charity in the face of war,
Culture that overcomes greed,
Love in response to injustice, and
Compassion when confronted by poverty;
grant that we who reverence her life
may also imitate her example of fidelity to
wisdom, truth, justice, beauty, and solidarity,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Amen.
