I will sing of your mercy forever, LORD proclaim your faithfulness through all ages.”  Psalm 89: 2

Merton’s Voice:

Let my trust be in Your mercy, not in myself. Let my hope be in Your love, not in health, or strength, or ability or human resources.  If I trust You, everything else will become, for me, strength, health, and support. Everything will bring me to heaven. If I do not trust You, everything will be my destruction.

Thomas Merton.  Thoughts in Solitude. (New York: Farrar, Strauss, Giroux): 29-30.
