Finding the Sky Within You

Monica Weis SSJ, Professor of English, Nazareth College, Rochester NY, is past Vice President of ITMS, current Board Member, and author of Thomas Merton’s Gethsemani: Landscapes of Paradise (UPK, 2005), and most recently Dancing with the Raven: Thomas Merton’s Evolving Ecological Consciousness (UPK 2010).

She will be leading a prayer session during the Chicago General Meeting of the ITMS called “Finding the Sky Within You”.

As she describes it, “This powerpoint session–with opportunity for sharing– will focus on Merton’s favorite prayer places, accompanied by quotations from his journals that illustrate how his prayer flowed into a celebration of nature, his praise of nature became prayer, and how these inner and outer landscapes often merged.”
