my song is of mercy Jun 2, 2000
fr. mathew kelty entered the gethsemani monestary after his 40th birthday and learned the ways of Trappist life while Thomas Merton was in charge of the education of novices. the underlying theme of all of fr. mathew's writing seems to be the resounding beauty of life that is waiting just beneath the surface for all of us to discover. this excellent collection of journal entries and homilies give the reader a wonderful idea of how the world appears to a trappist monk.
