Merton’s Heart


Merton’s Heart is a hillside clearing just across the Allegany River south of the campus of St. Bonaventure University. It’s always a reflection point for me. Tonight proved to be no exception when I arrived on campus. A quick look to my right and just past McGraw Field the beloved view of that hillside clearing named by Fr. Irenaeus Hirscher, OFM. Thanks to Fr. Irenaeus for supplying me and many others with a visible reminder of Thomas Merton. Merton’s Heart is always an invitation to prayer for me. Tonight was no exception.
