“Madonna and Child” (detail) by Sassoferrato

“Let us not imagine that we obscure the glory of the Son by the great praise we lavish on the Mother; for the more she is honored, the greater is the glory of her Son. There can be no doubt that whatever we say in praise of the Mother gives equal praise to the Son.” (St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Abbot, Doctor of the Church)


August 20 is the Memorial of St. Bernard, Abbot and Doctor of the Church (1090 – 1153).
