title : Monk Wins $259 Million Powerball Lottery, Finances 'Glory of World' Play About Christian Spiritualist Thomas Merton
summary : New York's newest play to debut this month, "The Glory of the World," only happened after a onetime Episcopal monk, Roy Cockrum of Knoxville, Ky., bought a Powerball ticket at his local supermarket in 2014 and won $259 million. Written by Charles Mee, the production takes a silence-and-strife-filled look at the life of Thomas Merton, the 20th-century American Catholic thinker who remains a spiritual inspiration and guide for many people.
