Fr Louis of Gethsemani

I recently started reading Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander by the exquisite and perilous Thomas Merton. I say exquisite since the formulation of his thought is delightful. Yet perilous, because I find in him the fearless spirituality that burns me as I approach it. His voice is that of the desert ... calling, calling ... at the moment I hear it saying:

Who are you?
What is that makes you, you?
Where are you headed? Why?

I have no answers.

I think that is how it should be for now.

Father Louis of Gethsemani, when you have passed into the fulness of the Flame, pray for me.
