RIP Father Berrigan

Father Daniel Berrigan

From my archives (I shot this for NLN, back when): Father Daniel Berrigan being arrested for civil disobedience outside the U.S. Mission to the U.N. in 2006.

Fr. Berrigan passed away today, April 30, 2016, at the age of 94. My favourite story: when asked how many times he’d been arrested for peace Fr. Berrigan quipped, “Obviously not enough.”

Backstory: The Kiss was a gift from artist Chuck Cowell circa 1988. Chuck and I worked in Central Rehab at South Beach Psychiatric Center in the late 80s. We are both fans of Man Ray and this painting of Chuck’s reminds me of ‘Observatory Time: The Lovers’ aka ‘The Lips’ (1936) by Man Ray. The yellow rose candle of Ste Thérèse de Lisieux and the candle stick were gifts from my daughter, purchased by her in Montmartre (Paris). — TAG
