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
