Merton’s Genius…

 James Finley writes:

“Thomas Merton’s genius lies not in founding a new spirituality, nor in coining his own unique concepts, but in drawing forth unrecognized and unappreciated, yet vitally important, elements from various traditions. He brings these elements together in new configurations more meaningful to contemporary man.”
