Remembering Thomas Merton
Saturday January 31st 2015 is the centenary of Tomas Merton’s birth. Monk, Poet, Peace Activist, Merton made a deep impression in his short life and left‑ us a rich legacy through his writings on Solitude, Silence and Contemplation. He saw that what we all seek most fundamentally is the awakening of our true inner self, our heart. Tomas Merton will be remembered through the eyes of TONY BATES, someone who has loved Merton for many years and who has drawn on him to deepen his understanding and practice of mindfulness.
This event takes place on January 31st, 2015 - 10am - 1pm at St. Laurence's Church, DIT Campus, Lr. Grangegorman Rd. Dublin 7 (3 minutes from the Sanctuary).
