Just finished Thomas Merton's Seven Story Mountain. Loved this passage on p. 447 of my copy:

Bob Gidney told him: "You were a Jew and now you are a Catholic. Why don't you black your face? Then you will be all the three things the Southerns hate most."

..."He stood by the road to hitch a ride to the monastery. Some fellows picked him up, and while they were driving along, they began talking about the Jews the way some people talk about the Jews."

So Lax said that he was not only a Catholic but a converted Jew.

"Oh," said the fellows in the car, "of course, you understand, we were talking about ORTHODOX Jews."
