The Feast of Thomas Merton

The Feast of Thomas Merton December 10, 2009

I see the American Episcopal Church has marked this day as the feast of Thomas Merton.

I’m rather pleased.

I owe more to this Anglo-American Catholic monk than I can say. From his writings and how he directly influenced people who directly influenced my life.

Blessings on his name and his memory…
