QuotationYou probably have received the wonderful new edition of Louis Massignon's Opera Minora. Excellent. I will see that you get them if you do not have them already. Please tell me. Meanwhile I think I will write at least a note of review about Dr. Lings's book on Ahmad Al-'Alawi which I want to reread. I am incidentally supposed to provide notes on Islamic mysticism from time to time for the magazine of our Order. This is a new step, and a promising one.
Quotation SourceThe Hidden Ground of Love: The Letters of Thomas Merton on Religious Experience and Social Concerns.; Selected and edited by William H. Shannon. / New York : Farrar Straus Giroux. 1985, p. 59
