Enjoy a deep spirit of recollection when reading this detailed yet practical book. The title, Stand on Your Own Feet, comes from Thomas Merton's final address in Bangkok, Thailand, when he emphasized that each one of us is responsible for our own baptismal calling. In this book, the author, cofounder of the Lay Cistercians of South Florida, is passing on a way of prayerful living.
