Super Rare photo of Thomas Mertons first Mass!

Father Louis (Thomas Merton) elevates the chalice during his first reading of Solemn High Mass since his Ordination to the Priesthood in Trappist, Ky., May 28, 1949. In foreground, the censer-bearer swings censer. At this point of the Mass the Consecration of the Body and Blood of Christ are complete and will be followed by Communion. Other priests are unidentified. Merton was given the name Father Louis upon his Ordination.

“A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.” Father Thomas Merton
