Robert Barron on Thomas Merton

The Hundredth Anniversary of Thomas Merton's Birth

No one is supporting his cause for canonization right?

Fr. Barron's apologetic:
They see this as an indication of a religious relativism or a vague syncretism. Nothing could be further from the truth. Merton was indeed fascinated by the Eastern religions and felt that Christians could benefit from a greater understanding of their theory and practice, but he never for a moment felt that all the religions were the same or that Christians should move to some space “beyond” Christianity.
How would Christians benefit? Eastern Christian monks certainly do not think there is anything to be gained from studying Buddhism and the like.
