Remembering Sr. Anne Montgomery

Rev. John Dear

One of the legends in the U.S. peace movement, Sister Anne Montgomery, died this week in California. A member of the Religious of the Sacred Heart, she spent over three years in prison for many civil disobedience actions against war, including seven plowshares anti-nuclear disarmament actions; many years teaching in Harlem, and many years living with the Christian Peacemaker Team in Hebron, Palestine-Israel.
