This season, our featured text from the Church's treasury of saints' writings is a sermon on love in the affections and actions by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), from Dijon in France, and abbot of the Cistercians at Clairvaux. The sermon is the fiftieth in his series on the biblical Song of Songs. St. Bernard was canonized in 1174 and declared a doctor of the Church by Pope Pius VIII in the early nineteenth century.
