Thomas Merton: ‘God’s Creative, Dynamic Intervention’

Contemplation is the awareness and realization, even in some sense experience, of what each Christian obscurely believes: “It is now no longer that I live, but Christ lives in me.”

… It is awakening, enlightenment and the amazing intuitive grasp by which love gains certitude of God’s creative and dynamic intervention in our daily life.–Thomas Merton
