Enjoy one of the greatest recorded works by Thomas Merton, the 20th century’s greatest spiritual writer.
In the summer of 1967, religious communities around the world were experiencing a time of renewal and reflection. As monasteries sought to adopt practices prescribed by the Second Vatican Council, Pope Paul VI asked two Cistercian monks to compose a message about the contemplative life. Those monks in turn sought the contributions of a fellow monk and master of contemplation - Thomas Merton. The resulting recording encapsulates the spiritual wisdom of a humble monk who changed the world.
