There are people who have dedicated their lives to the service of the Lord’s work who seek to elevate the lives of others. Thomas Merton is one of those special people. On the website http://www.merton.org/chrono.aspx, the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University there is a full description of his life and legacy. For the purpose of this blog I have shared a few quotes of his I hope you will enjoy:

Below is a very short introduction to a film which came out in 2015 about him and a prayer he wrote put to musical video:
Thomas Merton was a very controversial man of the Catholic faith. I expect controversial comments to my post. Let me say I’m a Christian who is tolerant of all denominations and their doctrines. I am not Catholic although my sister was. I have been more protestant in my faith being a member of both Methodist and Baptist churches. Today I focus on being a tenacious student of the word of God and seeking daily to deepen my relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I do believe all of faith have great things to share with each other. I know I gain much from many of you.
