A blast of Mertonium!

"The inviolability of one's spiritual sanctuary, the center of one's soul depends on secrecy, the intellectual counterpart of purity of intention.... And if we would remain with God in the center of our souls, we must never hope to bring Him out to others, as we find Him there, because it cannot be done. He cannot be communicated by anyone except Himself."

-- from this blog post [Reading Thomas Merton’s first journal in the monastery...1941-51...Entering the Silence...(a censored for publication version is Sign of Jonas)]
