Thomas Merton

Came across this blog post on Thomas Merton and the virtue of nonviolence and wanted to pass it on.

I’m a fan of Merton.

I find it both sad and interesting that local Kentucky Catholics labelled him as a subversive to be monitored by the government simply because he believed, like Jesus, in peace. Particularly at a time when nuclear war seemed imminent.
