“Focus with deep and genuine concern for those few persons God has committed to your care–your family, your students, your employees, your parishioners.

~ Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, a journal he kept from 1956 to 1965 in which he offered his observations about the disturbing world events of his day.
