Merton Monday

“Merton Monday”

“We are what we love.  If we love God, in whose image we were created, we discover ourselves… and we cannot help being happy: we have already achieved something of the fullness of which we were destined in our creation.  If we love anything else but God, we contradict the image born in our very essence, and we cannot help being unhappy, because we are a living caricature of what we were meant to be…” 

Thomas Merton – The Waters of Siloe
