St. Bernard was a 12th century French Cistercian monk who, upon entering for the austere discipline of the order, brought a group of friends and family to enter with him. Due to Bernard's profound spiritual way of life, he was sent to found a new monastery in Clairvaux and later made abbot. During his time, he became a greatly desired adviser and advocate among both Church leaders and world leaders, including helping heal the schism between the "two popes." Many would also come just to hear his homilies or speak with him - he truly had a Divine gift of Wisdom! He also wrote many works that had a deep spiritual impact, of which many recent popes have been deeply attached to, and extended and deepened the theology behind Mary as Mediatrix. St. Bernard, please intercede for us as a spiritual guide and draw us along the everlasting way.

For Epiphany this year, I purchased several mugs in this style for my older teenage boys and for my husband. They LOVE them! These are big mugs with big handles. They hold more than one and a half cups of liquid (!) and are perfect for holding hot cocoa and marshmallows. The lettering of the quotes is clear and smooth. We've run the mugs through the top rack of the dishwasher for the last 6 months and the quotes haven't faded. We are return customers to Catholic to the Max and these mugs, like everything else we've purchased here, are top quality.
