Did you know that Thomas Merton was a great homilist? Now you may hear him deliver four of his great sermons. 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 that will lead you to Christ. (Photograph of Thomas Merton by John Howard Griffin.

About the Author-
  • Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk and beloved author of such bestselling works as The Seven Storey Mountain and New Seeds of Contemplation. One of the twentieth century's great mystics, Merton was also a masterful teacher who delivered powerful lectures to the novice monks at the Abbey of Gethsemani. In these lectures, Merton's thinking moved from cloistered monastic life to issues of social justice and interreligious understanding. A spiritual sage and guide for countless men and women, Merton struggled with complex questions about God's existence, moral values, and the role of organized religion. Those who knew him also experienced his gifts as a homilist and teacher. These special, remastered recordings are part of his spoken word legacy. They are actual recordings of Thomas Merton and are part of the archives of the Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University in Louisville, Kentucky.

Reviews-
  • Professor Richard Rigby, Canberra, Australia After decades of reading Merton, the opportunity to hear his own voice is of great value.
