Thomas Merton at 100. There are many who are telling us how Merton opened the doors of faith for them. Add me to that list. You know the story...reading "Seven Storey Mountain" when I was still in high school and how it opened my eyes. Honestly could not make much of it at that point. Except one thing, which cracked the door for me.
Thomas Merton showed me that holy people are imperfect.
P.S. St. John Bosco, next year you get your feast back!
