Daniel Berrigan

“And all my country saw were priests who broke the law.”

Dar Williams’ song “I Had No Right” is about the late Catholic priests and peace activists, Daniel and Phillip Berrigan, and their acts of civil disobedience during the Vietnam War. Williams met the Berrigans after writing the song and said, “I don’t intend to become a Catholic, so it’s hard because there is a real urge to be in some sort of spiritual community with these people.” Read about Williams journey here: Dar Williams on Her Spiritual Journey
