Merton could have written this today

"What characterizes our century is not so much that we have to rebuild our world as that we have to rethink it. This amounts to saying that we have to give it back its language. The vocabularies that are proposed to us are of no use to us and there is no point in a Byzantine exercise upon themes of grammar. We need a profound questioning which will not separate us from the sufferings of men." — Thomas Merton, February 1964
