Rome . . . and Thomas Merton

The Vancouver Sun's feature writer Steve Whysall ranks Rome as the most
emotionally and intellectually exciting of any city he has visited. The
real pleasure of the city for him, he says, "...is the fascinating
synergy of the sacred and the profane." The ancient sites and the
history of Rome are enough to dazzle and amaze; the fact is today Rome
continues to be a smorgasbord and delight for anyone interested in
history, art, music, architecture and, of course, Thomas Merton.
