This issue of "From the Housetops Magazine" features the life of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. One of the most influential men of the twelfth century, Saint Bernard should serve as an inspiration for us in the twenty-first. In the age of knighthood he raised the bar when he devoted his life to the noble service of God as a Cistercian monk, bringing many souls along with him to the Gates of Heaven. Bernard achieved sanctity through his zeal, sacrifice and manly devotion.

I am totally impressed with the in-depth information provided about each Saint! When I think I know about the Saint being described it turns out I really didn’t fully understand how much I was missing out on. Each and every journal is a joy to read and deepens my understanding of our faith and how Mary is reflected in bringing us closer to Her son Jesus.
