'Man of the 12th century — there is no doubt or controversy, it has to be Bernard of Clairvaux'

By Father Perry D. Leiker

"So that we could, over the next 10 years, grow in an appreciation of our patron and come to appreciate who Bernard was and who he could be for us, and what kind of charism and gifts he might help to bestow in us and draw out of us so that, through him and through his life as a saint, this parish itself could become a more holy reflection of  God's word alive in us through the intersession of Bernard," Father Perry tells us in his homily for the Memorial of Saint Bernard, abbot and doctor of the church.
