Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The writings and ideas of Trappist monk Merton (1915 68) have attracted a great deal of contemplation and study. At once devoutly and austerely Catholic and indubitably modern, Merton has helped to broaden the picture of Catholic devotion for countless readers. This calendrical anthology is drawn from the whole span of his life and includes excerpts from his journals, diaries, and other writings, showing how Merton "learned that Love is everybody's language. Love's grammar binds us to everyone through all times and places." For most collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
