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.
