"Thomas Merton, one of the greatest spiritual writers of the twentieth century, had a decisive influence on me and my vocation to the priesthood. I became completely caught up in the drama and romance of Merton’s story, which is essentially the tale of how a man fell in love with God. Along with my discovery of Thomas Aquinas, the encounter with this second Thomas was pivotal in my awakening to the spiritual dimension of life and to the possibility of giving myself utterly to God."
