Product Description



A note on the cover illustration: This is a monk of all Orders, though there is a hint of the Cistercian scapular; a monk in movement around his axis in a seated dance, alert and at ease. Leaning toward us, is he teaching? Lightly sketched with the brush, the image has a curious authority and message. "Show me thy ways, O Lord, teach me thy paths" (Ps. 25).
Roger Lipsey, author of Angelic Mistakes: The Art of Thomas Merton
