Thomas Merton

Today is the anniversary of Thomas Merton's death. For me, the writings of Thomas Merton were a revelation and my introduction to Catholic Spirituality. It takes me a long time to get through his books because I need to adsorb them; portions are so rich that it becomes a sentence by sentence process.

There is a great story about a recent visit to the Abbey of Gethsemane by James Martin, SJ over at America.

  1. The Abbey is a great place to visit. I visited there before. You can make a week long retreat or weekend retreat there and it is beautiful and relaxing! also it is free, but you are encouraged to make a donation.

    By the way, I work for CatholicTV. Thanks for posting a link to the Papal programming.I was wondering how you found out about us? If you gave me specifics, it would be very helpful to us. Also, if you are interested, I can send you my press releases.
