Merton’s Messages for Us Today

Quiet Saturday: May 26, 2012

Thomas Merton was a multi-faceted soul, whose writings continue to be a resource to an increasing number of enthusiasts. Diarist, poet, teacher, photographer, social critic, essayist, nature-lover, letter writer, artist are some of the descriptions of a Trappist monk who desired to live in solitude, yet was – and still is – an outstanding communicator. His messages are “sound” for us today.

Led by Mary L. (Bunny) Stewart, Oblate SSJD, a long-time,relaxed, slow-paced (non-academic!) reader of Merton. Along with attending a number of Merton conferences, she has also facilitated reflective workshops on Merton in Britain and North America and is co-ordinator of the Toronto Merton Group.

Begins 9:30 am with gathering for coffee; ends 3:30 pm. Fee: $25 if you bring a bag lunch ($15 for Associates and Oblates). A hot meal is an additional $15.
