Merton: chilling faith
Commemoration of Thomas Merton, Monk, Spiritual Writer, 1968
[Jesus:] “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them.”
—Luke 6:32 (NIV)
Do not be too quick to condemn the man who no longer believes in God: for it is perhaps your own coldness and avarice and mediocrity and materialism and sensuality and selfishness that have killed his faith.
... Thomas Merton (1915-1968), Seeds of Contemplation, London: Hollis & Carter, 1949, New Directions. 1949, p. 105 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, forbid that I should lead another astray.
