"To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love. Love is my true identity. Selflessness is my true self. Love is my true character. Love is my name."

- Thomas Merton,
from A Book of Hours

I know, high expectations -the pressure to be Love. I can only keep trying. paz, k

  1. Thomas Merton was a very deep thinker indeed, but he did not have all the distractions that we have...:)Heidi

  2. Oh dear Thomas. Always calling me out my comfort zone. I guess I kind of love and hate that, both at the same time. Wonderful, beautiful quote from him today. Thanks for sharing it.

  3. High, yes, but good, too. I love this quote, especially the last sentence. I'll be thinking on this one a long time. Thank you and have a beautiful weekend! xo Gigi

  4. Beautiful. I'm soaking this one in as deeply as possible . .
