Congratulations to all the poets on the long list.

Lord, hear my cry!  May your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.”  Psalm: 130: 2

Merton’s Voice:

We can have the mercy of God whenever we want it, by being merciful to others; for it is God’s mercy that acts on them, through us, when He leads us to treat them as He is treating us.

Thomas Merton. No Man is An Island. (New York: Harvest Book, 1983): 211.
