From Jim Forest, always a great source for Merton commentary and lore:
Here are links to the texts of several talks given during my two-week stay in British Columbia. All but the last -- on Erasmus -- have a Merton connection.

Thomas Merton: Peacemaker in a Divided Christendom:
We Will All Be Changed: Reflections on the Transfiguration
Give Peace a Chance: Peacemaking as common ground:
