Father David Kirk

1935 – 2007

“This was a call to a lifetime of more than conventional Catholicism
and opened my eyes to desperate need and justice,
seeing this one hurt, another hungry, and another desperate,
and I responded with what I had.”

“To be a Christian is to place yourself at the place of suffering.
Where there is suffering, there is God.”
