Virtue of the Month - Zeal
Last week we explained the definition of ZEAL - great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective. In religious terms, zeal is manifested by an impelling desire to advance the glory of God by making him better known and loved. We have no better example of someone who demonstarted this virtue of ZEAL than the Patron Saint of our School and Parish, ST. BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX.
ST BERNARD OF CLAIRVAUX was a French Abbot. He founded numerous monasteries, composed a number of works, and undertook many journeys for the honor of God. He is known as one of the founders of the Cistercian order of monks and leader of the crusades. Today his writings still guide spiritual lives not only of the order he made famous, the Cistercians, but of men and women in all walks of life. What Bernard is remembered for today, more than his reforming zeal and zealous crusade preaching, is his mystical writings. His best known work is On Loving God, in which he states his purpose at the beginning: "You wish me to tell you why and how God should be loved. My answer is that God himself is the reason he is to be loved."
To read some of his writings you can download one of his books Here.
