Notes:  Taken from all Merton Archive CD's from Reel 187. "Enjoy some of Thomas Merton's most electrifying talks. Originally delivered at a hermitage to a group of Carmelite sisters in Savannah, these talks are now available to the public for the first time ever. Merton gave these talks in 1967, two years after the conclusion of Vatican II. While you listen, you will witness Merton working through his own questions about the council. Follow along as he deals with cultural issues, spiritual poverty, and the contemplative life." -- Container Disc 1. Introduction by Fr.
