Thoughts in Solitude

Thoughts in Solitude

by Thomas Merton (1958)

This book has the distinction of containing the prayer most commonly associated with Thomas Merton. It is also unique in that it does not carry the Nihil obstat and Imprimatur that usually appear at the beginning of his books. No matter, as there is very little of what would pass for doctrine in these pages.

“A voice of one crying out in the desert”

Merton on trusting God’s mercy

Merton on facing despair

Merton’s prayer of total trust
