    I’m happy that today the Church celebrates the great St. Bernard of Clairvaux! I a great admire and devotee of him.

    I love your homily, father; specially when you said St. Bernard can be a great example of mortification/penance for the men/the human beings nowadays. This time of total insanity due to desesparate seek of richness and pleasures is a world fell into a hurricane, is a world consumed by the fever of lust… May God have mercy on us!

    St. Bernard, pray for us!

    Dear Friars, Could I share with you the link of the Cistercian Abbey of Our Lady of Assumption in Brazil? (Nossa Senhora da Assunção de Hardehausen-Itatinga). It is a wonderful abbey where is lived the same spirituality that St. Bernard lived in the abbeys of his time.


    There are some issues/tops I especially like commenting. I hope you don’t mind. I guess other people will like to access that website.
