Daily Catholic Quote — from St. Bernard of Clairvaux

“Christ at 33” (detail) by Hofmann


“The sweet Name of Jesus produces in us holy thoughts, fills the soul with noble sentiments, strengthens virtue, begets good works, and nourishes pure affection. All spiritual food leaves the soul dry, if it contain not that penetrating oil, the Name Jesus.” (St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Abbot, Doctor of the Church)


The Optional Memorial of Holy Name of Jesus is January 3.
