About the Author

Daniel Joseph Berrigan, SJ, was a Jesuit priest, anti-war activist, Christian pacifist, and author. He wrote more than fifty books about the Bible, spirituality, and resistance to war. Berrigan is most known for being vocal about pacifism; for his protests, including his association with the Catonsville Nine; and for cofounding the Catholic Peace Fellowship and the interfaith group Clergy and Laity Concerned about Vietnam, whose leaders included Martin Luther King Jr., Richard John Neuhaus, and Abraham Joshua Heschel.

the bright billboards of California's freshly invented media landscape were Corita's chief inspiration; this places her in a continuum of religious artists... who have recognized that faith, when argued for visually, works well when grounded in the everyday. If Corita looks good to non-believers, it is because she pulls from her belief a blend of sunny optimism, delectation of reality and general sense of purpose--Martin Hebert "Frieze"
one of the most outspoken and well-known activists within the Catholic Church during the turbulent 1960s. Corita Kent, once known as Sister Mary Corita, I.H.M., never backed down from her desire to call people to the simplicity of the Gospel through revolutionary art.... Would the canon of modern art recognize a woman--and a woman religious at that--for contributions that equal those of her contemporary, Andy Warhol?--Suzanne Wielgos "America: The National Catholic Review"
