Scholar’s fascination with Thomas Merton leads from battlefield to awards ceremony

Shrewsbury – In “The Sign of Jonas,” the Trappist monk, author and theologian Thomas Merton wrote: “Keeping a journal has taught me that there is not so much new in your life as you sometimes think. When you re-read your journal you find out that your latest discovery is something you already found out five years ago. Still, it is true that one penetrates deeper and deeper into the same ideas and the same experiences.”
