recall (I haven't read it since I purchased it soon after
the publication release date), Graham's only liturgical
suggestion was the incorporation of meditative techniques
into the daily office.
For a useful obituary, see:
There was an ongoing connection between Graham and Thomas
Merton: sometimes harmonious, sometimes tempestuous, and
always enlightening. But that takes us away from liturgy
and into the realm of Roman Catholic monastics'
participation in inter-religious dialogue. Thus, please
disregard everything following ". . .into the daily office"
