Scope and Content

Biography

Fr. Denis Hines, a Trappist priest, writes first from a hermitage in Sedona, Arizona. He mentions previously being at St. Benedicts Abbey in Snowmass, Colorado. Later, his card to Merton is addressed from Christ in the Desert Monastery in New Mexico. His hermitage at Sedona was getting shut down and he was looking for a new site. Merton informs him that he will not be allowed to establish a hermitage at Gethsemani at that time.
