Merton’s Voice:

We must occupy our hearts not with the thought of arduous and cold obligations which we do not fully understand, but with the presence and love of the Holy Spirit who enkindles in us the love of good and show us how to “do all things in the name of Jesus Christ.” The Christian way of perfection is then in every sense a way of love, of gratitude, of trust in God.

Merton, Thomas, Life and Holiness, New York: Image Books, 1963, p. 65.

Prayer:

You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.” (NRSV Ps 91: 1-2)
