Monday with Merton




“Therefore, if I trust in God’s grace I must also show confidence in the natural powers He has given me, not because they are my powers but because they are His gift. If I believe in God’s grace, I must also take account of my own free will, without which His grace would be poured out upon my soul to no purpose”


Thomas Merton, No Man is an Island
