“The imagination of a boy is healthy, and the mature imagination of a man is healthy; but there is a space of life between, in which the soul is in a ferment, the character undecided, the way of life uncertain, the ambition thick-sighted: thence proceeds mawkishness, and all the thousand bitters which those men I speak of must necessarily taste in going over the following pages.”
John Keats, Preface to the Endymion, 1818
My name’s Mervin OP, a professed religious brother in the Dominican Order. I am a Pinoy prayle under clerical formation who, since upon entering religious life in 2013, has been engaged with different apostolates—from promoting Marian devotion to meeting young people in retreats and recollections. Currently, I am involved in the Dominican Students’ Media Center, the social communications media apostolate of our seminary.
This blog features my personal musings, random thoughts about Dominican life and spirituality, and all other crazy misadventures that happen within that which John Keats calls “space of life.”
