Merton on Pacifism|
"I am interested in that magazine, The Catholic C.O., which (Raymond E.F.) Larsson sends me. I don't entirely understand what they are driving at, or rather what is the basis of the of the things they claim. For in that they are not very clear. And yet it seems to me more and more that nowadays a Christian ought to be something very close to an absolute pacifist."----Entry May 4, 1948, Vol. 2 of the Journals of Thomas Merton. Harper, Collins.
