Thomas Merton: ‘Make All Beauty Holy’

“The eyes of the saint make all beauty holy and the hands of the saint consecrate everything they touch to the glory of God, and the saint is never offended by anything and is scandalized at no [person’s] sin because [s]he does not know  sin. [S]He knows nothing but the love and the mercy of God and [s]he is on earth to bring that love and that mercy to all.”

From Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton (New Directions Books, 1949, p 21)
