Collect for the
Feast of
Thomas Merton

from the New Zealand
Anglican Calendar

Gracious God, you called your monk Thomas Merton to proclaim your justice out of silence,
and moved him in his contemplative writings
to perceive and value Christ at work in the faiths of others:
Keep us, like him, steadfast in the knowledge and love of Jesus Christ;
who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.
