Thursday: Robert Lax's Surprise for Thomas Merton

On Thursday's show, St. Monica edition, Robert Lax's surprise for Thomas Merton, why Francis could be an antidote to polarization (through we may not let him), Fr. Alan Carter's First Cup Theology on "sign up Sundays," and why some tweets from a Taylor Swift concert should provide some parental comfort.

  1. Hi Mike,

    I'm glad to see that you did a segment on Robert Lax and Thomas Merton last month. Lax's influence on Merton's spiritual and poetic development is little-known and under-appreciated. I just published a biography of Lax--Pure Act: The Uncommon Life of Robert Lax--that gives a great look at the friendship between these two men and the lifelong influence they had on each other. Please let me know if you're interested in learning more.

    Best, Michael N. McGregor
