Here’s the trailer for a new(ish) hour-long documentary on Dorothy Day, which includes something I’ve not seen before: some filmed footage of Dorothy speaking on poverty. If the full movie is as good as the trailer, it’s certainly worth the price. More information on the movie can be found on this website.
By the way, according to Robert Ellsberg, editor of her journals, "The Duty of Delight," the full quote is "Don’t call me a saint; I don’t want to be dismissed that easily." Dorothy was averse to both being put on a pedestal and having her ideas dismissed as unrealistic for the common person. But she also had a deep devotion to the saints, especially St. Therese of Lisieux, and a great apprecation for the place of the saints in the life of the church. So objections to her newly initiated canonization process should probably not rely on that quotation, pungent as it is.
