Spiritual Classics – Thomas Merton’s Contemplation

New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton is the Spiritual Classics choice for our next discussion on Tuesday, February 7 at 7:30 pm over Zoom.

Thomas Merton was a Trappist monk at Gethsemani Abbey in Kentucky in the middle of the twentieth century and wrote many books about his spiritual path. New Seeds of Contemplation seeks to awaken the dormant inner depths of the spirit neglected by modern society, and to nurture a deeply contemplative and mystical dimension in our lives. This book continues in the meditative tradition of St. John of the Cross, The Cloud of Unknowing, and the medieval mystics.

Registration is required. To participate, just send an email to llaffc@ascensionoakpark.com with the name of the book in the subject line. You’ll receive a return email before the discussion with a link for the Zoom meeting
