Thomas Merton and the CW
"I finished the TIME-LIFE Bible Introduction---very glad to get it off my back too! Relieved. I hope I don't get into anything else like that. Yesterday afternoon as I was walking along thinking about it on the road by the Sheepbarn, I consoled myself with the thought I was getting ten dollars a page and then with a shock realized I was getting a hundred dollars a page. That didn't make me feel better. On the contrary; that's the trouble! I feel more at home---and write better---when I am doing something for THE CATHOLIC WORKER for nothing."-----Dec. 22, 1967, Vol.7, The Journals of Thomas Merton
