In Memoriam

Father Daniel Berrigan
May 9, 1921 - April 20, 2016

A poet, 
a prophet, 
a pastoral presence 
for peace.

He challenged the status quo of the "war machine" and stood in humble strength before the powers that be.

Three quotes:
One is called to live nonviolently, even if the change one works for seems impossible.
And even more radically:
Faith is rarely where your head is at. Nor is it where your heart is at. Faith is where your ass is at!
And finally, at the heart of the matter for Bro. Dan:
If you are going to follow Jesus, you better look good on wood.
Well done, good and faithful servant.
