Happy birthday, Thomas Merton (Jan. 31, 1915 – Dec. 10, 1968)! ‪#‎Trappist‬ monk. ‪#‎Mystic‬. ‪#‎Pacifist‬. Poet. Social activist. Student of comparative religion. Author of “The Seven Storey Mountain” (1948), among many other works. Quotable quote: “Life is this simple: We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.” Buried at the Abbey of Gethsemani in Trappist, Kentucky.
