Thomas Merton: on the 12 Degrees of Humility

Introduction by Fr. Anthony Ciorra, Ph.D.

Thomas Merton was one of the 20th century's great mystics. A monk and best-selling author, Merton struggled with deep questions about God's existence, moral values, and the role of organized religion. His thinking moved from cloistered monastic life to issues of social justice and inter-religious understanding. Those who knew him also experienced his gifts as homilist and teacher. These special recordings are part of his spoken word legacy.

In this series you are invited into the classroom in which Thomas Merton delivered some of his most impassioned lectures on a timeless topic.

In 1962 at Gethsemani Abbey, Thomas Merton taught an extraordinary course on the heart of Benedictine spirituality. Now, for the first time ever, this course is available to you. Through 16 digitally remastered recordings, you will encounter Merton as a master teacher, his voice reaching out across the decades to make monastic wisdom accessible to all of us.

The Rule of St. Benedict is foundational in the history of Western Spirituality, especially in its commentary on humility. This work of spiritual genius has guided the monastic movement since the sixth century and touched countless Christians. Merton brings new energy to this ancient document, and you will gain new insights into the Rule and experience another side of Merton’s personality.

The uniqueness of this series lies in how it transports you to the classroom of the monastery. You will listen to the way Merton teaches through his interaction with his students as he shares his reflections with them. You will also witness how Merton works through the material, integrating the virtue of humility into his own life.

All of us struggle with humility. In this course, you will examine what it means with a great mystic who personally struggled to live this foundational virtue. You will encounter St. Benedict, gain new insights on humility and get to know Thomas Merton as a great teacher.
