Merton's 100th Birthday ~

There was supposed be a weekend seminar held here about Thomas Merton which I was excited about and signed up for. It was called off because of lack of participants.

Wow. A powerful statement. What does it mean about us?

Is he slowly losing his popularity?

There have been some articles published recently that are very damaging. They put him in a new frame, much different than the one he was in in the 40s and 50s.

He did a lot to open up our understanding for other religions.

Merton's book "Seven Story Mountain" was a blockbuster when it came out. It was autobiographical but gave some insight into the life of a monk once he entered the monastery.

I wish he had kept on the same spiritual track as in the beginning. Her turned activist and got into politics.
