More About Daniel Berrigan

He became a household name in 1968, when he seized draft records at Catonsville, Maryland, and burned them with napalm, galvanizing a protest movement and igniting widespread religious opposition to the Vietnam War. "Better the burning of paper than of children," he told the judge. Berrigan published over fifty books of poetry, essays, and scripture commentaries in his lifetime. He was also arrested more than fifty times for creative acts of nonviolent civil disobedience and spent several years in prison.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Ok, so it is short-hand to write American, as there are many Americas, but in English this is understood as US, which would be even shorter hand. Most of our Americas speak a language OTE (Other Than English in the short hand of official forms) and until the eighties most were Roman Catholic.

Be that as it may the adjectives bear validity and meaning in this context. The octogenarian and very Reverend Father Daniel Berrigan SJ is our greatest living American priest and and most long standing and prolific prophet.

We do well to review the entire half century history of his writings, in particular this one, written while in hiding from the United States Government, written like Saint John of the Cross under persecution, written to find union of spirit and strength from this great and mystical Saint, under the terror of government oppression for daring to speak and to act for peace in time of perpetual warfare. See his The Trial of the Catonsville Nine. See his Night Flight to Hanoi: Daniel Berrigan's War Diary with 11 poems, with its relevance to the imprisoned John McCain, whom Father Daniel may easily have freed with our government's cooperation which was not forthcoming. Read his The Kings and Their Gods: The Pathology of Power.

The opening passages of this book explore the state of hiding in the underground, and the relevance of Saint John of the Cross's great autobiographical poem and commentary St. John of the Cross: The Dark Night of the Soul. Too often what little we hear of this great work from Spain places it far off in some nebulous and inaccessible mystical realm, far above and beyond our daily strife. The blessing of Father Berrigan is making this mighty spiritual work physical, real, and revealing of his present life and situation of persecution, as strengthening to him, as comforting, as accompanying in solidarity with his suffering as the disarmed pursued by heavy arms, and thus a model of strength, comfort, solidarity, in its meditation for each of us believers.

Read this book. Study Saint John of the Cross. Grow strong and clear. Find the Light of Christ within our Dark Nights. Never again in all his works would Father Berrigan write with such precise clarity, urgency and bravery, with such distilled poetry, after his years of daily oppression and actual torture at the hands of his jailers. Here he writes freely, fully, courageously, prophetically for us now today trapped within this dark night of our confused times. Come to see the light once more, with an audacity of Hope.

Read this book. We need it now more than ever.
