One hundred years after his birth, Thomas Merton is as relevant as ever. During his U.S. visit, Pope Francis cited the Trappist monk as one of four great Americans to emulate. School of Theology and Ministry Associate Professor Colleen M. Griffith will present “Thomas Merton: A Prophet for Our Time” on Oct. 29 at 5:30 p.m. in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons. 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 MinistryandThe Church in the 21st Century Center.
