Thomas Merton writing to Dorothy Day –

“To some this quote will mean nothing, to others it describes an important stage in the journey .... We should in a way fear for our perseverance because there is a big hole in us, an abyss, and we have to fall through it into emptiness, but the Lord will catch us. Who can fall through the center of himself into that nothingness and not be appalled? But the Lord will catch you ... because of the prayers of the poor.
