The Law of Love – Thomas Merton

July 7, 2022
Tonight’s sunset from our front porch

A simple, yet profound quote as I continue to reflect on Sunday’s sermon:

It is not enough for us to possess human nature, we have to act as humans, we have to exercise all the deepest capacities of our nature. More than this, we have to act as persons—freely! As soon as we come into existence we begin to obey the Law of Love.—Thomas Merton (Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, p. 117)
