The wounded heart of Thomas Merton by Robert Waldron( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Waldron's brief biography of Thomas Merton examines and exposes a man who lived a deeply spiritual life, yes, but also a deeply conflicted one as well. By the use of Jungian theory and archetypes, Waldron explores all of the major Merton works (e.g., Seven Storey Mountain, The Sign of Jonas, The Collected Poems, Zen and the Birds of Appetite), but especially all of the many volumes of Merton's private diaries, and discovers a man, a soul struggling to live "la vita nuova" in the monastery while being drawn by various sirens out of it. Edgy, chancy, and at times speculative, Waldron penetrates Merton's sometimes dense poetry and prose to discover or uncover what was wanting in Merton's soul his desire for his own hermitage; his longing for the nurse he fell in love with; his desire perhaps to establish an entirely new monastic foundation. Merton emerges less a saint than a sinner who never stopped trying to become a saint by "becoming who he really was."

15 days of prayer with Henri Nouwen by Robert Waldron( )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henri Nouwen (1932-1996) is considered one of the greatest spiritual masters of the modern age. Born, educated and ordained in Holland, he came to America as a professor of pastoral theology. Invited by Jean Vanier to join his mission to help the handicapped, Nouwen left academia behind to become pastor of L?Arche Daybreak, a home for the disabled in Toronto. There, among God's wounded, he found a home and his greatest happiness. A heart attack cut short his rich life as writer, lecturer and priest. Nouwen drew standing room only audiences, who flocked to hear his message that we are God's beloved children, that God is the One of unconditional love who loves us now, with no strings attached. His many books are arrows pointing towards this love, reminding Christians of the timeless message that Christ came into the world not to blame but to love

Poetry as prayer : the hound of heaven by Robert Waldron( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Praying poetry is a journey into unknown lands, where marvels of beauty, insight and radiance may shake the very foundations of our lives. A person overwhelmed by fear, anger or depression at a poem's beginning may, by its end, turn toward paths of courage, peace or hope. Such is the power of poetry as prayer. As a prayer-poem, The Hound of Heaven echoes our deepest spiritual longings. Accompanied by the interpretive art of Anthony Lobosco, Francis Thompson's famous poem sets the reader upon a meditative journey to a deeper way of praying. Also included: "10 steps to reading poetry in a holy way", and "Suggested poetry for prayer."
