|Subject||Thomas Merton: His Contemplative Voice Today|
Out of an unhappy and confused childhood and youth, Thomas Merton became one of the 20th century’s most famous monks.† Themes that began in his childhood run throughout his life, becoming the basis for his contemplative message.† During the day we will explore some of these themes, looking at how Merton’s inner journey developed, growing out of both his own experience of life and his deep knowledge of the Christian tradition; and at ways in which his extraordinary, authentic and soul searching integrity, speaks to us today.
