Bernard of Clairvaux: Homilies in Praise of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Bernard of Clairvaux
Paperback: 96 pages
To sing the praises of Mary, Bernard studies and contemplates her there where God has so perfectly revealed her, in the Scriptures, taking as his text the passage from Luke, "An Angel was sent to a virgin named Mary." In the company of the Church Fathers and with the help of the liturgy, he uses Holy Writ to provide both the content of what he says and the form in which he says it. Theologically the sermons are thoroughly traditional; in the beauty of their expression they are unparalleled.
