With an extensive introduction by Merton expert Fr. Anthony Ciorra, these sermons will stir your heart.
Homilies give listeners a peak into the heart and spiritual journey of the preacher. In the four homilies in this series, you get a rare glimpse of a side of Merton that is special and sacred. His choice of topics gives you insight into his theological, biblical, and spiritual worlds. As you listen to these homilies, you will hear beautiful thoughts on the Trinity and Merton's image of God. The place of Mary in both Cistercian spirituality and his own personal life is compellingly expressed in his homily on the Immaculate Conception. The centrality of the Paschal Mystery is captured in Merton's reflections on the cross and resurrection.
These homilies are snapshots of Merton's inner spirit and rare gems that capture the heart of his spirituality. Thomas Merton was a spiritual genius who defies categorization. These homilies provide insight into what was most important and precious to him. As you listen, imagine yourself sitting in the choir pews in the Abbey Church of Gethsemani, soaking in the thought, preaching style, and depth of this great man. After you listen, spend some time in silence and allow yourself to be transformed by the preacher and his message, which will lead you to Christ.

Your ipod can light up the world with Mertons word
After years of Buddhist meditation, i now have to resist to fall back into Christianity hearing Merton. Here in the US, Christianity is focusing on strengthening the endless crusades against homosexuality, other cultures and abortion, things Merton never mention since those things are really not what the trinity really is about. Thomas Merton is still shining his light from from his lampstand, or your ipod.
