Merton on Salvation by Grace

"I believe, with Diadochos of Photike, that if at the hour of my death my confidence in God's mercy is unfaltering, I will pass the frontier without trouble and get by the dreadful array of my sins as if they were not there, because of God's grace and the Precious Blood of Christ the Lamb of God, and the compunction He gives to the repentant. And I will, by his mercy, leave them behind forever."

— Thomas Merton, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander (Image Books 1968) p. 143
