Thomas Merton: ‘In Her They Prosper’

“S/he is like a tree planted near streams of water, that yields its fruit in season; Its leaves never wither; whatever s/he does prospers.”–Psalm 1:3

“She (Wisdom) is in all things like the air receiving the sunlight. In her they prosper.  In her they glorify God.  In her they rejoice to reflect  [God].  In her they are united with [God].”–Thomas Merton
