Ernesto Cardenal: Psalm 5

My favorite essay in the Class of Nonviolence is Letter to Ernesto Cardenal: Guns Don't Work, by Daniel Berrigan. This is a video of Fr. Cardenal reading his paraphrase of Psalm 5: HEAR MY PROTEST Hear my words, Oh Lord, give ear to my groanings. Listen to my protest. For you are not a God who is friendly with oppressors . . .

  1. Thank you for posting this and spreading the insight of Ernesto Cardenal and the Psalms into the violence of our common culture of violence.
