Thomas Murton? Could the good Cardinal have been referring to Thomas Merton in his commencement remarks? What was the source of the transcript?

Transcript was from the College website.
(That’s why I always take the trouble to include the source link.)
When I read that I noticed that, but charged it off to I was always spelling it wrong.
Is it “Merton”?
Maybe someone lifted it from the Cardinal’s prepared text.
Interesting. I didn’t type it; I don’t have that much patience. So don’t blame the messenger. LOL!
Maybe someone used Dragon Dictation or Via Voice.

Sorry I did not notice the link. It is most definitely Merton. I really find it incredible that anyone would misspell the name of such a well know person. I am not blaming the messenger but wonder where the error lies; with the Cardinal or with the College.
All the best and thanks as always for getting JJ out each week.
[JR: Hey, you’ve never seen me SPELL! I’d probably only get the M and the N correct; throw a few vowels and consonants in random order. And, it’ll look good to me. ROFL! We wuz taught in ingineering skrule that engrish is a gud language cause it has a lot of redundancy. And, tolerates errors well. Let’s see if anyone claims it or we can just blame the Cardinal. Bishops and Cardinals make great villains. A la the Three Musketeers.]
