A Way to God free pdf This unique reflection was prompted by an invitation Matthew Fox received to speak on the centennial of Thomas Merton s birth. Fox says that much of the trouble he s gotten into such as being excommunicated in 1993 from the Dominican Order by Cardinal Ratzinger (who later became Pope Benedict) was because of Thomas Merton, who sent Fox to Paris to complete a doctoral program in philosophy. Fox found that Merton s journals, poetry, and religious writings revealed a deeply ecumenical philosophy and a contemplative life experience similar to that of Meister Eckhart, the fourteenth-century mystic/theologian who inspired Fox s own creation spirituality. It is little surprise to find Fox and Merton to be kindred spirits, but the intersections Fox finds with Eckhart are intellectually profound, spiritually enlightening, and delightfully engaging."
