In Merton’s footsteps

Some years back, I wrote a piece for Catholic Digest on “Thomas Merton’s New York.”  The story was a pilgrimage, of sorts, visiting some of the landmarks of Merton’s life that are still standing in Manhattan.

In the short video below, Fr.  James Martin takes us to two of those landmarks: the church were Merton was baptized and the rowhouse in Greenwich Village where he lived. At the end, Fr. Martin quips that he credits his vocation to four people: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and Thomas Merton.

Yep. Me, too!
