A meditation a day from Thomas Merton

This convenient day book is a compendium of inspiring passages from the writings of one of this century's spiritual giants. It offers daily challenges for thoughtful meditation intended to stimulate, provoke, and lead to grace. Here are some enduring thoughts found in these pages:

"We cannot be happy if we expect o live all the time at the highest peak of intensity. Happiness is not a matter of intensity, but of balance and order and rhythm and harmony."

"Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul."

"Nothing is more suspicious, in a man who seems holy, than an impatient desire to reform other men. Pay as little attention as you can to the faults of other people and none at all to their natural defects and eccentricities."

"The wise heart lives in Christ."

"Wisdom manifests itself, and yet is hidden. The more it hides, the more it is manifest; and the more it is manifest, the more it is hidden. For God is known where he is apprehended as unknown, and he is heard when we realize that we do not know the sound of his voice."

"God utters me like a word containing a partial thought of himself."

"Our full spiritual life is life in wisdom, life in Christ. The darkness of faith bears fruit in the light of wisdom."

"Love cannot come of emptiness. It is full of reality."
Thomas P. McDonnell

About Thomas P. McDonnell

Thomas P. McDonnell - Through the Year With Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton (1915-68), Trappist monk, author, and peace activist, came to international prominence at a young age with his classic autobiography, The Seven Storey Mountain. Over the rest of his life he wrote prolifically on a vast range of topics, including prayer, interior growth, social responsibility, violence, and war. Toward the end of his life he played a significant role in introducing Eastern religion to the West. He is today regarded as a spiritual master, a brilliant religious writer, and a man who embodied the quest for God and human solidarity in the modern world.

M. Scott Peck, M.D., is a nationally renowned author and lecturer on the relationship between religion and the science of psychology. One of his most recent books is Further Along the Road Less Traveled.
