Product Description

Bernard of Clairvaux, a twelfth-century abbot and contemplative, wrote sermons for the entire Christmas liturgical cycle, beginning on the first Sunday of Advent and culminating on the Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary/Presentation of Christ in the Temple on February 2nd. This collection of sermons successively brings the reader to an understanding of how the Word, once incarnate in the person of Jesus, now re-incarnates through the written words about him. Open yourself up to the true nature of the divine Word. Translated by Irene Edmonds, Wendy Mary Beckett, and Conrad Greenia, OCSO.

Publisher's Description

The twelfth-century abbot and contemplative known to history as 'The Mellifluous Teacher' wrote sermons for the entire Christmas liturgical cycle 'from the first Sunday of Advent (four weeks before Christmas) to the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul (25 January). As he reflects on the wonder of the Incarnation, he reminds Christians still today that Christmas celebrates the awesome condescension of God-with-us, not a commercial carnival.
