Merton’s voice:

There is no true solitude except interior solitude. And interior solitude is not possible for anyone who does not accept his right place in relation to other men. There is no true peace possible for the man who still imagines that some accident of talent or grace or virtue segregates him from other men and places him above them. Solitude is not segregation.

Merton, Thomas, New Seeds of Contemplation. New York: New Directions, 1961, p. 56.

Prayer:

Praise the Lord, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion! For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you. He grants peace within your borders. (NRSV Ps 147: 12-14)
