How can I have a more intimate relationship with God through prayer?

About this Book:

As humans, we all have a fundamental longing for authentic love and intimacy. We want to feel cherished and to be closely connected with others. But how do we satiate this yearning in our spiritual lives, enriching our prayers and deepening our relationship with God? Where do we find an untainted intimacy in which our affectivity does not have to be abandoned, but can be expressed freely without fear?

In this collection of selections from his sermons on the Song of Songs, Saint Bernard reflects on the Biblical allegory of spiritual marriage between God, the Bridegroom, and our soul, the Bride. Through this interpretation, he awakens you to God's tender embrace and God's desire to have his affection reciprocated. By showing you how to accept God's invitation to intimacy in your contemplative prayer life, he reveals how you can fulfill your longing for pure and enduring love.

About the Author:

Saint Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) played a leading role in the reform and rapid expansion of monasticism in his time. Preaching in an age smitten by the idea of "courtly love," Bernard's compelling interpretation of the spiritual life awakened people to the only relationship that ultimately satisfies: our relationship with God.
