“Merton once told me that so few of us are willing to become people of prayer because so few of us are willing to go beyond definitions and concepts to grasp life itself. There comes a time when one must set out in earnest to return to the Father’s house, to find his way out of the burning building, to choose life instead of death.”

~ James Finley, Merton’s Palace of Nowhere

Painting by Camille Pissarro (1884)
