Description

15 Days of Prayer Collection&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Now distributed by New City Press, this popular series is perfect for those looking for an introduction to a particular spiritual guide, those searching for gift ideas and those who merely wish to know more about the person and his or her spirituality. Additional volume planned in 2 to 3 months intervals. Each volume contains:&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br /> A brief biography of the saint or spiritual leader introduced in that volume&lt;br /&gt;<br /> A guide to creating a format for prayer and retreat&lt;br /&gt;<br /> 15 meditation sessions with focus points and reflection guides&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Follow in the footsteps of Saint Bernard&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Bernard of Clairvaux was a twelfth-century Cistercian monk whose influence extended into many areas of Church life. His monastic reforms emphasized mystical prayer as the foundation of daily observance, bringing the Cistercian order into a position of unprecedented expansion and renown. He fought successfully for acceptance of Innocent II after a disputed papal election and aggressively countered theological heterodoxy within the Church. Bernard was also a great champion of the Second Crusade and obtained recognition for the Knights Templar as a dedicated order of Christian warriors.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Stand fast in the Gospel&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />Saint Bernards most enduring contribution to the Christian Faith is his body of writings, including his letters, homilies and a variety of theological studies. Perhaps his best-loved works are his collections of sermons, including Homilies in Praise of the Blessed Virgin and Sermons for the Seasons of the Year, which reveal Bernard as an experienced guide for your spiritual journey and resolve the paradox of his varied life: secluded monk and Church leader, man of peace and man of the sword, humble servant and bold reformeralways a dedicated preacher and champion of the Gospel. Let Saint Bernard accompany you on the path to spiritual renewal in Christ.&lt;br /&gt;<br />&lt;br /&gt;<br />show more
