Father Paul Mayer is a non-canonical, formerly married priest. His experience as a young Jewish refugee from Nazi Germany inspired him to cofound Children of War to help young survivors of wars. Becoming Catholic and then a Benedictine monk, his work with Dr. King in the 1965 voting rights campaign set him on a lifelong path of organizing for global peace, social justice, ecology, and non-violent social change. His efforts have included pioneering liberation theology in Central America, working with Jesse Jackson in the Rainbow Coalition, addressing the 1984 Democratic Convention on nuclear disarmament, coordinating the Catonsville Nine Defense Committee in support of religious non-violent action, and working with other world luminaries of the last 50 years. Most recently he cofounded the Climate Crisis Coalition and has received honors for his non-fiction writing. His new book, Wrestling With Angels: A Spiritual Memoir of A Political Life, is due for publication soon.
