from Rosemarie Pace, Pax Christi Metro New York coordinator

Why do you stand?  They were asked, and why do you walk?  Because of the children, they said, and because of the heart, and because of the bread.  Because the cause is the heart’s beat and the children born and risen bread.                                     ~from the poem, Some, by Fr. Daniel Berrigan

On Sunday, January 29th, from 2:30 to 4:30 PM, Pax Christi Metro New York (PCMNY) will pay tribute to Fr.

  1. Fr. Dan, This is what I say to my 18-year old cat, Tygre. “Thank you for staying so long!” To quote you from the Merton-Maritain conference in the early 80’s: “If not a prophet, then what?”…… a loss? Mayhap.

    Happy New Year from Tony and Judy Simon, Yves Simon Institute.

  2. Fr. Dan Berrigan – when my fellow catholics, some i believe even spying on my radical sds anti-war activities during the late sixties – gave this catholic high school graduate hope that i was not evil for believing profoundly in the rights of the worker and the poor & and the absolute need for World Without Nuclear Arms Peace !

  3. Fr. Dan, I pray that i will make it to hear your words and witness on Jan 27. I think you know how much I admire you, everything you have done and continue to do.

    I wish you Peace and Joy!
