What does it mean when you Reblog yourself? Is it considered lazy? Phoning it in? Or is it simply re-celebrating a great Doctor of the Church – St. Bernard of Clairveaux who you remembered *on your way to the office, praying the Office* you wrote about sometime ago – and thought #forthewin.

Title: Intimacy in Prayer: Wisdom from Bernard of Clairvaux
Author: St. Bernard of Clairvaux
Page Count: 91
Current Price: $7.95 (for this GEM of a book?!)
