Thomas Merton Birthday - January 31, 2005

Thomas Merton was born in France 90 years ago today. Take time to send an email to a friend who does not know it is Merton's birthday. This is a day of blessing and thanksgiving.

Together In Spirit, Best Wishes for Thomas Merton's 90th Birthday - January 31, 2005 - Retrospective...

"The perfect illumination is, then, the illumination of Love shining by itself. To become completely transparent and allow Love to shine by itself is the maturity of the "New Man." -- from "Rebirth and the New Man in Christianity"

Remembering Thomas Merton's (Father Louis's) "illumination" just around the corner from the old Saint Louis Cathedral in Louisville, Kentucky...

I do a newsletter for a group I am a part of. The theme of this month's newsletter was, of course, love! I found this quote:
"Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved.
It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves.Love, therefore, is its own reward."
Thomas Merton
I thought of you and prayed for Janet!
Happy Birthday to Merton! I don't know much about him, but have enjoyed learning what I do know.

Happy belated birthday big Tom! Pray for us! Perhaps like you Dan, this man now in that other dimension, has had a greater effect on me than any other "teacher" I've had on earth. God has used him in a great way to filter truths through to many of us, and still is.

Peace and Grace to you. Hope your wife is doing OK.
