IMG_0983.JPGweekend, we did just that, as Sr. Donald offered reflections on Thomas Merton and the spiritual journey: a celebration of his life and work, in honor of the 100th anniversary of his birth.

The setting for the day-long conference/retreat was Transfiguration Monastery in Windsor, NY. The seating at the Guest House conference room was comfortable, the lunch hospitality simple and delicious, and the exchange of ideas, stories and experiences about this giant of a 20th century theologian, author and contemplative enough to engage any person seeking to know more about Merton.

The session will be repeated this coming Saturday, November 29th. Check the Monastery’s blog for more information: http://transfigurationmonastery.wordpress.com
