HOLY SEE GIVES APPROVAL TO OPEN BEATIFICATION PROCESS FOR DOROTHY DAY

    NEW YORK, 23 (NE) "It is with great joy that I announce the approval of the Holy See for the Archdiocese of New York to open the Cause for the Beatification and Canonization of Dorothy Day." Cardinal John O'Connor, Archbishop of New York opened with these words his traditional weekly column at the "Catholic New York." On this occasion he dedicated the column to the cause of the now Servant of God Dorothy Day, born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 8, 1897. She dedicated to journalism during her youth.

    After her conversion she began in May 1933, when society suffered the consequences of the economic "Great Depression" in the United States, the publication of the "Catholic Worker", newspaper that would reach great diffusion, as well as a movement of social assistance for the most needy. Dedicated to the cause of peace in the world and defense of life, Dorothy Day founded one of the largest organizations of social assistance in the United States. Quoting his letter to the Holy See asking for this approval, Cardinal O'Connor also stated that the life of Dorothy Day is an important model for the people of this new millennium.
