St. Bernard of Clairvaux

Doctor of the Church and ardent promoter of devotion to the Blessed Virgin, St. Bernard of Clairvaux was extremely active in the faith as an "adviser of popes, preacher of the Second Crusade, defender of the faith, healer of a schism, reformer of a monastic Order, Scripture scholar, theologian and eloquent preacher..."

He was written many sermons and has lots of little nuggets of wisdom to share, I only wanted to share this one in applying it to motherhood:

"He who prays and labours lifts his heart to God with his hands."
