Presenter: Colleen M. Griffith
In an age of unrest and distraction, Thomas Merton poses many challenges to contemporary culture, inviting a deeper sense of the human, a broadened grasp of catholicity, and a way of communal solidarity. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Merton's birth, this presentation recognizes the degree to which Merton's contemplative vision has become only more prophetic in our time.
