"The Spirituality of Thomas Merton: From Separation to Solidarity with the World"
With Jo-Ann Iannotti, OP
When Trappist monk Thomas Merton, author of "The Seven Story Mountain, died in 1968, he had evolved from his original vocation to "leave the world behind", to discovering gradually his fuller call to engage with the world of the 20th Century. This, he discovered, was the true locus for encountering the Divine.
In this brief program, we will encounter the man, the monk, the mystic and the social activist. Who was this friend of artists and leaders of world religions? Why his involvement in social issues such as nuclear war and racism? His is a voice people still return to, now some 56 years later, to help in their own discernment on their personal journey to their truest self.
