Come And See


Come and See is a look inside the mind of a monk. Monastic spirituality is a universal spirituality that is the common inheritance of every human being, it is a search for God. From the atheist to the saint there is in the heart of all creatures a desire for ultimate meaning, a desire for God. In this sense everyone has the heart of a monk. As you read this book you will meet some of the great themes of monastic life: silence, solitude, community life, prayer. You will also be helped to find your most authentic self, the self Thomas Merton spoke of when he said at the center of our being is a point of nothingness, a point of pure truth. The place of the heart is highlighted in these conferences and homilies as an ancient theme so relevant to the modern person.
