Thomas Merton and Pornchai Moontri: A Prayer for the Year of Mercy — by Ryan A MacDonald (6 Dec 2015)
Pornchai Moontri was Valedictorian of his high school graduating class of 2012
Tragedy struck the life of Pornchai Moontri obstructing justice and mercy. Now echoed in a prayer by Thomas Merton, the redemption of Pornchai evokes the Year of Mercy.
Some recent posts over on These Stone Walls made me want to revisit something I published a few years ago but never got back to. It was an article titled “Pornchai Moontri at the Narrow Gate,” and it has always needed a sequel.
A lot has come to light since I first ventured into the remarkable life of this remarkable young man.
