“Our apologies, good friends, for the fracture of good order, the burning of paper instead of children, the angering of the orderlies in the front parlor of the charnel house. We could not, so help us God, do otherwise.” Daniel Berrigan was a Jesuit priest, poet, and peacemaker whose words and actions over fifty years have offered a powerful witness to the God of Life. Father Berrigan, along with his brother Philip, was one of the Catonsville Nine, arrested and imprisoned in 1968 for destroying draft files in a protest against the Vietnam War. But this was only one step along a journey of faith. Through these selections from his many books, journals, poems, and homilies, a chronicle of Berrigan’s life and work unfolds, from the early steps in his vocation to his decision to cross the line and go to prison, his ongoing witness for peace, and his extraordinary commentaries on scripture and the life of radical discipleship.

Author Bio: Daniel Berrigan

Author Bio: Daniel Berrigan

Daniel Berrigan (1921–2016) was a Jesuit priest who was deeply involved in the peace movement worldwide. His active protest during the Vietnam War, like many others during the 1960s, earned him both scorn and admiration, but it was his participation in the Catonsville Nine that made him famous. It also landed him on the FBI’s Most Wanted list—the first-ever priest on the list—on the cover of Time magazine and in prison. For the rest of his life, he remained one of the leading antiwar activists in the United States. In 1980, he founded the Plowshares Movement, an anti-nuclear protest group, that put him back into the national spotlight.
