Matthew, Merton, and Me is an inspiring story of God's genuine healing championed by faith. This story calls out God's grace-filled moments in the author's life through a recollection of time spent at the Abbey of Gethsemani. The book focuses on the connection with Brother Matthew McGunigle, O.C.S.O., formerly known as Doc McGunigle of Broadway and Hollywood fame and to a lesser extent, the most famous monk ever to live at the Abbey-Father Louis Merton, O.C.S.O., Thomas Merton.

"Matthew, Merton, And Me - Recollections of a Life of Grace" is a story that deserves to be told. The book focuses on the lasting connection forged within the walls of a 103-year-old monastery and the impact it carries today in the monastic heart of Monsignor Robert L. Getz.
