"Writing as a monk about his inner experiences became one of Thomas Merton's major spiritual exercises". In this book, A Year With Thomas Merton, you will find selected daily meditations taken from the journals written over the course of his life. He used the journals to help him live out more fully and consciously the meaning he was finding in his daily life while living the lessons he was learning step by step. In sharing his journals, he shares the wisdom he learned when he documents "God's secret epiphanies given to him between the lines of his everyday experiences" and encourages others to look for and meditate on the little epiphanies they experience in their own lives. The daily meditations in A Year With Thomas Merton are attuned to the seasons of the year like Lent and Advent and also reflect Merton's own personal journey through life. The beginning of each month features one of Merton's black and white photos or one of his pen-and-ink drawings. The short daily readings are meant to help the reader move more deeply into their own personal spiritual journeys. If you feel you only have a few moments a day for meditation, A Year With Thomas Merton is the book with which you will want to spend time.
