Thomas Merton on Being Truly Catholic

“To be truly Catholic is not merely to be correct according to an abstractly universal standard of truth, but also and above all to be able to enter into the problems and the joys of all, to understand all, to be all things to all.”

— Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander
