The Sign of Jonah

“Keeping a journal has taught me that there is not so much new in your life as you sometimes think. When you re-read your journal you find out that your latest discovery is something you already found out five years ago. Still, it is true that one penetrates deeper and deeper into the same ideas and the same experiences.” - Thomas Merton, The Sign of Jonas


  1. Thomas Merton, AKA Fr. Louis, continues to have much wisdom and deep spiritual insight fourth years after his death.

    1. I always think of him as Fr. Louis as well.
