Thomas Merton Quotes: A Christian Society Such A Society Is

A Christian Society? Such A Society Is Not One That Is Run By Priests, Not Even Necessarily One In Which Everybody Has To Go To Church: It Is One In Which Work Is For Production And Not For Profit, And Production Is Not For Its Own Sake, Not Merely For The Sake Of Those Who Own The Means Of Production, But For All Who Contribute In A Constructive Way To The Process Of Production. A Christian Society Is One In Which Men Give Their Share Of Labor And Intelligence And Receive Their Share Of The Fruits Of The Labor Of All, And In Which All This Is Seen In Relation To A Transcendental Purpose, The "history Of Salvation," The Kingdom Of God, A Society Centered Upon The Divine Truth And The Divine Mercy.
