Franciscan Heart 3D“The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton” presentation & book-signing By author Daniel P. Horan, OFM Thursday, October 2, 2014,  5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Assisi auditorium stage classroom

Millions of Christians and non-Christians look to Thomas Merton for spiritual wisdom and guidance, but to whom did Merton look?  In The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton, Franciscan friar and author Daniel Horan shows how, both before and after he became a Trappist monk, Merton’s life was shaped by his love for St. Francis and for the Franciscan spiritual and intellectual tradition.   Given recent renewed interest in St. Francis, this timely resource is both informative and practical, revealing a previously hidden side of Merton that will inspire a new generation of Christians to live richer, deeper, and more justice-minded lives of faith.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing by the author after the presentation.
