St Bernard had to be one of the most charismatic men of his day! All that traveling must have been terribly difficult in those days. Being from a good family and educated, he could have easily accepted a more comfortable station in life. It seems amazing by today’s standards that religion had so much meaning and influence back then.

It is hard to relate to those times isn’t it? The Catholic Church in those days was more powerful than most nations. Hard to get my head around a church being that powerful.
