Item description for Prayer for the Morning Headlines: On the Sanctity of Life and Death by Howard Zinn Daniel Berrigan...

"Seed Hope. Flower Peace." Decades after the end of the Vietnam War, and years since the start of the Iraq War, these words by Jesuit priest, poet, peace activist, and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Daniel Berrigan still resonate. Prayer for the Morning Headlines: On the Sanctity of Life and Death pairs select Berrigan poems with luminous photographs of cemetery statuary by Adrianna Amari. In this beautiful collection, the evocative images combine to form a meditation on the profound impact of the loss of any life, and bear witness to lasting grief, memory, and love. As noted historian Howard Zinn states in his eloquent introduction, " was in Baltimore that Adrianna Amari took her extraordinary photographs of sculptures scattered through the city. It is all there, as in Berrigan's poems- life and death, the prayer that comes with commitment, the hope that comes with resistance, the visions of a world where peace and justice prevail." At times tranquil, at times dramatic, the words and images in Prayer for the Morning Headlines always implore readers to love one another and fight war no more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prayer for the Morning Headlines: On the Sanctity of Life and Death?

Berrigan's Poetry in a "Goth" format  Jan 16, 2008
This is not the kind of book I would usually buy - poetry with photographs. I had my doubts when I saw the cover but found the photographs provided an experience with the poetry that was unique, poignant, and moving. The poems the photographer chose span the gamut of Fr. Berrigan's poetic career (he's been writing poetry for longer than I've been alive). The photos are carefully chosen, framed, and focused.

Being as the photos are from cemetaries, this gives the book a "goth" feel - thus taking someone usually seen as a "sixties" poet and making him new - to use Ezra Pound's dictum. I wish this could get into the hands of the younger generation and I wish it wasn't so expensive
Poignant and Powerful  Jan 1, 2008
This marvelous book is poignant and powerful. It captures and expresses the spirit and the soul of the enduring human struggle to build a more peaceful world. In an era of cynicism and fear, this book is badly needed.
Charles F. Dambach
President, Alliance for Peacebuilding
Publisher Shares Advance Praise for "Prayer"  Aug 7, 2007
"For me Father Berrigan is Jesus as a poet. If this be heresy, make the most of it."
-Kurt Vonnegut

"Dan Berrigan is a national treasure, and he has added another powerful, poignant book to his towering life's work. Adrianna Amari's photographs offer searching complements to Berrigan's poems. Read and reflect on this book, and share it with others."
-Amy Goodman

"Beautiful. Haunting."
-Martin Sheen
Activist and Actor, The Departed and The West Wing

"The steadfastness of this Saint, Daniel Berrigan, is ever revealed in his poems. His poetry is joined in this beautiful volume by the muses of history and art."
-Ramsey Clark
Former U.S. Attorney General
