|The farm at St. Catharine, KY, where I saw my tree. |
It's run by the Dominican Sisters of Peace.
“One day I was walking along Tinker Creek thinking of nothing at all and I saw the tree with lights in it. I saw the backyard cedar where the mourning doves roost charged and transfigured, each cell buzzing with flame. I stood on the grass with the lights in it, grass that was wholly fire, utterly focussed and utterly dreamed. It was less like seeing than like being for the first time seen, knocked breathless by a powerful glance. The lights of the fire abated, but I’m still spending the power.” (Pilgrim at Tinker Creek)
|The grave of Thomas (Fr. Louis) Merton|
“overwhelmed with the realization that I loved all these people, that they were mine and I theirs… even though we were total strangers. It was like waking from a dream of separateness.” (Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander)
“They went… in search of the Divine, and they found it the only way it can be found, here and there- around the edges, tucked into the corners of the days.” (Teaching a Stone to Talk)
