Portrait of Philip Berrigan

Philip Berrigan (1923–2002) was an American Josephite priest turned longtime activist. He was, like his brother Daniel, a member of the Cantonsville Nine. His autobiography, Fighting the Lamb’s War: Skirmishes with the American Empire, was published in September 1996 by Common Courage Press. In a last statement before his death from cancer at age 79, he said, “I die with the conviction, held since 1968 and Cantonsville, that nuclear weapons are the scourge of the earth; to mine for them, manufacture them, deploy them, use them, is a curse against God, the human family, and the earth itself.”
