Merton’s Love of Nature

Richard Rohr shares this in his newsletter today. I have followed Merton since I was introduced to him by a friend during college days.

Part of Thomas Merton’s legacy, which I believe has been underappreciated, is his great love of nature. In the hills of Kentucky, he found his connection to God strengthened by every leaf, every tree, every sunrise. I felt it as well in my time at his hermitage. Theologian and GreenFaith fellow Sister Kathleen Deignan writes of Merton’s relationship to the natural world, which inevitably led to his activism on the earth’s behalf: Richard Rohr Meditation: Merton’s Love of Nature
