St. Bernard on Our Blessed Mother

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

St. Bernard did much to advance Marian devotion in the Church.  He was in many ways the first 2nd millennium apostle of Our Lady.  This being Mary’s month, I thought I might try to honor Our Lady by quoting one of Her most devoted advocates.  St. Bernard wrote in such gorgeous prose for Our Lady’s glory (taken from Divine Intimacy):tumblr_m83rp0dF1U1roniu7o1_500
