Dan Berrigan Week continues with this excerpt from Ched Myers’ living eulogy in 2003 (read it in it’s entirety here in this month’s Bartimaeus Cooperative Ministries newsletter!):

None of us would be gathered here—neither Catholic Workers nor members of the Immaculate Heart of Mary community, nor any of us assorted feral Christians—were it not for Dan’s showing and telling of the gospel. The political spaces he opened through his public witness, the theological imagination he ignited with his pen, the language he gave us in a time when lies are sovereign—all these have helped us find just enough courage to embrace something of the Way.
