Jesuit priest and poet

whose defiant protests

helped shape the tactics

of opposition to the Vietnam War

and landed him in prison

 

(...)

 

The United States

was tearing itself apart

over civil rights

and the war in Southeast Asia

when Father Berrigan

emerged in the 1960s

as an intellectual star

of the Roman Catholic “new left,”

articulating a view

that racism and poverty,

militarism and capitalist greed

were interconnected pieces

of the same big problem:

an unjust society.

 

It was an essentially

religious position,

based on a stringent

reading of the Scriptures

that some called pure

and others radical.

 

But it would have

explosive political consequences

as Father Berrigan;

his brother Philip,

a Josephite priest;

and their allies

took their case to the streets

with rising disregard for the law

or their personal fortunes.

 

A defining point was the burning

of Selective Service draft records

in Catonsville, Md.,

and the subsequent trial

of the so-called Catonsville Nine,

a sequence of events that inspired

an escalation of protests

across the country;

there were marches, sit-ins,

the public burning of draft cards

and other acts of civil disobedience.

Jerry Berrigan, a Catholic Peace Activist, Dies at 95

By DANIEL E. SLOTNIK        NYT        AUG. 2, 2015

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/03/

Catholic peace activist who,

like his better known brothers

Philip and Daniel,

was arrested frequently

for protesting the Vietnam War

and other conflicts

 

(...)

 

Mr. Berrigan

was a quieter counterpart

to his brothers,

the former Josephite priest Philip

and the Jesuit priest and author Daniel.

 

The two of them

became international antiwar figures

after they participated in the burning

of Selective Service draft records

in Catonsville, Md., on May 17, 1968.

 

The trial of the Catonsville Nine,

as they were known,

helped galvanize protesters

across the country.
