The Bernardin Center at Catholic Theological Union and the International Thomas Merton Society

Reminder to All the Friends of the 
Merton Contemplative Initiative at Iona

A University Chapter of the International Thomas Merton Society

Tonight at 8 PM (ET) our Friends and Colleagues at ITMS and the Bernardin Center are hosting one of Merton's most gifted and faithful translators: Jonathan Montaldo.

A longtime friend who collaborated with Sister Kathleen to create the audio version of her Merton Book of Hours, Jonathan was also our keynote speaker for the inauguration of our Iona Merton Contemplative Initiative over a decade ago.   

We are happy to promote his session this evening, and hope to host him for our podcast, "A Vow of Conversation," soon. 

His presentation this evening is free.  It will be wonderful.  We shall be blest.
