Great post on mysticism and activism

A wonderful piece of writing here from Pinch of Salt about the link between mysticism and activism, something I believe to be pivotal within what we sometimes call new monasticism.

In my book, which looks at new monasticism in the UK, I mention a few of the key figures and movements which have influenced the development of a new monastic way of thinking, three of the key figures are Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin. This article clearly defines the link between them, and brings clarity to the vital link between mysticism and contemplation, and action.
