Hello Readers! Resuming Monday February 12th at 7:00 pm in the one storey conference center to discuss The Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton.
If you’re pressed for time, suggesting focusing on the second half. I am reading this in terms of how the prayer and penance of a monastic community affects everyone / how everyone’s prayer and sacrifice, as well as sins, impact the whole.
March 12th is Where We Got the Bible: Our Debt to the Catholic Church by Henry G. Graham. It was written over a hundred years ago, which accounts for the speech-like tone and some asides that reflect the author’s time, not ours.
