In her presentation, Griffith will show how Merton’s contemplative vision has become only more prophetic today. Griffith is co-editor of the award-winning book Prophetic Witness: Catholic Women’s Strategies for Reform and  Catholic Spiritual Practices: A Treasury of Old and New Registration is requested. Sponsors: School of Theology and Ministry and The Church in the 21st Century Center.
