Thomas Merton Saturday: “God in Exile”

It is possible to speak of the exterior self as a mask: to do so is not necessarily to reprove it. The mask that each man wears may well be a disguise not only for that man’s inner self but for God, wandering as a pilgrim and exile in His own creation.

—Thomas Merton, New Seeds of Contemplation
