Trappis monk Thomas Merton wrestles with what it means to be a contemplative person in the 20th century. In the midst of American consumerism's choke-hold on the lives of ordinary people, how can one maintain a contemplative life? Further, how can the contemplative life be prophetic for this generation? Just a sampling of themes explored in Merton's 1967 retreat in Kentucky.
