Prayer and Trial in Christian Life

Thomas Merton

Join Thomas Merton in exploring the importance of prayer and contemplation in the Christian life.

In this set of talks, Merton addresses key questions about what defines contemplative life. His approach is thoughtfully thorough, as he speaks openly about how to grasp core issues with which we all grapple. As a Trappist monk, Merton lived a deeply pious life, and he channels his experiences of living the religious life into wisdom-filled lectures.

Originally delivered as a set of informative, enlightening lectures to the Sisters of Loretto in 1967, these recordings have been remastered and made available for all to enjoy. Christians—and non-Christians—from all walks of life will find a wealth of insight in Merton’s reflections on the contemplative life. Throughout the talks, Merton delves into the topics of prayer, poverty, and purity, weaving together his academic research with his rich pastoral and spiritual background.

These lectures offer a rare glimpse of Merton at his intellectual peak. In listening to them, you will discover how a life of prayer and faith are absolutely fundamental to the Christian life. As Merton shows, we must truly believe that Jesus Christ is risen and alive today in order to follow Him authentically.

The exclusive access to Merton’s thought provided in this program will bring you to a fuller vision of faith. Through these unique and heartfelt talks, Merton will reach out across the decades to touch you personally.
