Glorify the LORD, Jerusalem; Zion, offer praise to your God.” Psalm 147: 12

Merton’s Voice:

St. Benedict never said a monk must never go out, never receive a letter, never have a visitor, never talk to anyone, never hear any news. He meant that the monk should distinguish what is useless or harmful from what is useful and salutary, and in all things glorify God.
