On the Love of God and Other Selected Writings

Alba House

“Mary’s Troubadour” is the way most people remember St. Bernard of Clairvaux, so refined was his tremendous devotion to the Mother of God. On the eighth centenary of his death, Pope Pius XII dubbed him the “Mellifluous Doctor,” thus paying tribute to the sweet accents of his flowing prose. This “Last of the Fathers of the Church” has never ceased to inspire his readers with a deeper love of the Lord. His pursuit of charity, his zeal for the purity of the monastic lifestyle, his fidelity to the Faith, and his promotion of contemplative prayer have endeared him to generations of the faithful down through the ages. In this collection of his writings, emphasis has been placed on abridging his better-known works and letters with the hope that, as a sampler, more people may be inspired to read them in their entirely. This book will serve as an introduction to a great saint whose message is, if anything, more timely today than it ever was.
