1 Shawn Bose = "Fr. Robert Barron discussing how he discovered Thomas Merton. Great way to understand the power of his thinking and its impact on clergy here in the United States."
2 Cary W = "The one definable aspect of revelation is its certainty.  In those still, present, awakening moments, there is the sense of complete trust, truthfulness, eternal meaningfulness."
3 Cary W = "Enlightenment is simply trusting life is perfect just as it is.  That each moment, each encounter is perfect, full of profound meaning, and continually working for the glorious will of God and Life abundant."
