Book of Saints – Gerard of Clairvaux


(Blessed) (June 13) (12th century) A Cistercian monk, the brother of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. The sermon of the latter on the occasion of Gerard’s holy death is one of the most touchingly beautiful pieces of Mediaeval Prose literature we possess (A.D. 1138).
