Thomas Merton

Thomas Merton’s really something. Yesterday I started reading his The Sign of Jonas and I found gems scattered all round!

I have only one desire and that is the desire for solitude – to disappear into God, to be submerged in His peace, to be lost in the secret of His Face.

Let me keep silence in this world, except in so far as God wills and in the way He wills it. Let me at least disappear into the writing I do.

God’s love takes care of everything I do. He guides me in my work and in my reading…

Reading Merton makes me want to leave the law profession and become a monk! Maybe it’s not too late.
