Founders of Religious Orders

“[The Religious Life is one] in which a man lives more purely, falls more rarely, rises more speedily, walks more cautiously, is bedewed with the waters of grace more frequently, rests more securely, dies more confidently, is cleansed more quickly, and rewarded more abundantly.” -Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, Hom, in illud Matth. xiii. : Simile est.
