Thomas Merton on Contemplation
Thomas Merton on Contemplation5 2 5 Höfundur: Thomas Merton Lesari: Thomas Merton
In the words of renowned theologian Fr. Lawrence Cunningham, Thomas Merton was perhaps "the greatest spiritual writer and spiritual master of the 20th century." With a poet's sensibility, an intellectual's inquiring mind, and a prophet's courage, Merton has captured the hearts of readers and listeners around the world.
After a radical conversion experience, Merton became a Trappist monk in the Abbey of Gethsemani, where he wrote the spiritual classic The Seven Storey Mountain. At the heart of Merton's transformative conversion was contemplation. Now, this series invites you into that profound contemplative experience.
Recorded during the last decade of his life, these six powerful conferences were delivered by Merton at Gethsemani, where he gave religious instruction to the novice monks. As you listen to Merton in his own voice, you will encounter a candid, personal side of this beloved spiritual writer. Remastered for you to enjoy, these conferences exemplify his teachings on prayer and contemplation.
These carefully selected conferences cover such topics as the spiritual journey, John Cassian's philosophy of prayer, silence as an act of worship, and the key components of prayer in meditation. In the final conference, you will listen to Merton's farewell address, a powerful talk that captures his human side. With an extensive afterword by Merton expert Fr. Anthony Ciorra, these conferences are true treasures.
