The Prophet's Freedom

Thomas Merton

Introduction by Fr. Anthony Ciorra, Ph.D.


These are some of the most fascinating Thomas Merton lectures ever recorded. We are deeply honored to bring them to you.

Recorded in the last year of his life, these talks capture Merton as he ponders profound questions in an accessible down-to-earth way. You will glean insight from Merton on a wide range of subjects, all held together by his conviction in our call to live in freeing obedience to the Holy Spirit.

As Merton critiques the culture of his day, he speaks frankly about the way it creates alienated individuals who chase after superficial goals. He points to the contemplative life as a way to refute such a worldview. He guides us to seek out our deepest vocation. For him, the most mundane task done to glorify God is a prayer, and we can attain union with God through our daily work.

Among the interreligious topics Merton covers, his commentary on the relationship of Buddhism to Christianity is especially noteworthy, given that the Dalai Lama himself praised Merton as having a more profound understanding of Buddhism than any other Christian he had ever known.
