Bless the LORD, my soul; all my being, bless his holy name.” Psalm: 103: 1

Merton’s Voice:

Souls are like wax waiting for a seal.  By themselves they have no special identity.  Their destiny is to be softened and prepared in this life, by God’s will, to receive, at their death, the seal of their own degree of likeness to God in Christ.

Thomas Merton. Seeds of Contemplation. (Norfolk, CT: New Directions Books, 1949): 98.
