Emerging Wisdom for Today’s Spiritual Seekers: Learning from Saint Francis and Thomas Merton
There have been few more popular wisdom figures and spiritual guides in the Christian tradition than Francis of Assisi and Thomas Merton. Yet, the degree to which Francis’s life, writings, and the spiritual tradition that bears his name influenced Merton’s life, thought, and writing is little known. Behind some of this twentieth-century monk’s most significant insights—about the search for one’s True Self, the recognition of and care for creation, the call for interreligious dialogue, and so on—stands the Franciscan spiritual tradition. Together, we will examine the emerging wisdom from both Francis and Merton, highlighting the way the medieval mendicant’s tradition shaped the modern monk’s teachings on the journey to discover our True Self in discovering the Divine.
All our welcome to attend.
