For those who are interested in Thomas Merton or St. Francis of Assisi, and happen to live in the greater New York Metro area, come uptown for my lecture on Saturday afternoon at 2:00pm. The lecture, titled “A Monk, A Mendicant and the Vita Evangelica: The Gospel Life According to Merton and St. Francis,” is a presentation on the rich Franciscan influence in the life, thought and writings of the famous American spiritual writer and Trappist monk Thomas Merton.  We will examine the history of influence over the course of Merton’s (all too short) life, while also looking at three ways in which Merton and Francis offer us examples of authentic Gospel living in today’s world.

Come and support the Thomas Merton Society of New York and enjoy the presentation!

You can find details in The Catholic New York newspaper as well as on the Archdiocese of New York website. Or you can visit the venue’s website, Corpus Christi Church in Manhattan, directly.
