Yesterday, a string of unlikely events led me to an essay I wrote for a book honoring the Centenary of Merton’s birth in 1915 titled: We Are Already One: Thomas Merton’s Message of Hope. The book contained essays by about 120 people, many of whom were very well-known, including: Michael Casey, Joan Chittister, John Dear, James Finley, Jim Forest, Matthew Fox, James Martin, and Kallistos Ware.
