Thomas Merton ~

Lauding him as a "representative of the American people "
Pope Francis said: 
"Merton was above all a man of prayer, a thinker who challenged the certitudes of his time  and opened new horizons for souls and for the Church. He was also a man of dialogue, a promoter of peace between peoples and religions."
... words in an address before Congress.
