Dan Berrigan, SJ

Fr. Dan Berrigan, SJ died yesterday.

He was a priest, a prophet and a poet.

These words of his were included in the program for my first Mass
on May 20, 1973:
Sometime in your life,
hope that you might see one starved man,
the look on his face when the bread finally arrives.

Hope that you might have baked it
or bought or even kneaded it yourself.

For that look on his face,
for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread,
you might be willing to lose a lot,
or suffer a lot,
or die a little, even.

— Daniel Berrigan

May he rest in peace...
