To live prophetically, you’ve got to be questioning and looking at factors behind the facts. You’ve got to be aware that there are contradictions. In a certain sense, our prophetic vocation consists in hurting from the contradictions in society. This is a real cross in our lives today. For we ourselves are partly responsible.

Thomas Merton
Springs of Contemplation (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1992), p. 157
