Lars Adolfsson is President of the Swedish Thomas Merton Society, and has earned an M.A. in Ecclesiology. He lectured from 2010-2011 at the Newman Institute/University of Uppsala: Thomas Merton Spiritual Guide and Transcender of Limits.
He will present “Setbacks, Failures and Prosperity: Following Thomas Merton on the Road of Paradox”.
“We all have our share of shortcomings in life and Thomas Merton knew them all, but when reading Merton we can discover how the setbacks and failures turn into prosperity, a journey within a paradox; a way of life”, he said.
