Dear Father Thomas,
Thank you, thank you so much for welcoming me in 2015 in Colorado. You were ill and yet you were willing to give me an interview. I had come from over the ocean and had longed to meet you for more than 20 years. Why there was suddenly a 'kairos' in May 2015 so that I could travel to Snowmass, is still a mystery to me. I didn't dare to tire you or push you to the interview, so I hesitated, but you yourself consented even before I had asked and you were all witty and energetic once the cameras were rolling. Unbelievable, what a charisma! These were profound experiences in St. Benedict's Abbey, and you showed to be a truly great teacher. I thank and honour you in my prayers.
