Sermon by St. Bernard, Abbot
This was the second reading in the Liturgy of the Hours for today. There is much thought in this one paragraph. To find consolation in the Holy Spirit is a great joy! Also read Romans 12:12. Blessings on this day! The whole of the spiritual life consists of these two elements. When we think of ourselves, we are perturbed and filled with a salutary sadness. And when we think of the Lord, we are revived to find consolation in the joy of the Holy Spirit. From the first we derive fear and humility, from the second hope and love.
