Tuesdays with Merton

Bonnie Thurston Tuesdays with Merton

The sisters continued to follow the International Thomas Merton Society's Tuesdays with Merton series, gathering to listen to Merton scholar and community friend Dr. Bonnie Thurston speak on, "...almost as if I had a sister" Thomas Merton and Etta Gullick. After setting the scene of the correspondence between the two and the growth in their "epistolary friendship," Bonnie spoke more extensively on their exchange on “progress” in contemplative prayer. The Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union is also a co-sponsor of the series.
