As founding abbot of Clairvaux, Bernard's giftedness and good judgment made him an often-sought resource by both church and secular powers, and in that capacity, he was sometimes delightful and sometimes dismaying to those who encountered him.

But when it comes to prayer, says Maureen F. McCabe, OCSO, Bernard can only delight. Anyone who gives him a chance will discover teachings full of unction and spiritual discernment. He draws us to continual prayer through an unshakable confidence in the One who believes in our capacity to love without limits, no matter what state we're in or stage we're at. He stirs us to continual gratitude for and reflection upon the mercies of the Lord, especially in his passion. Bernard, says Mother Maureen, is truly a father—father of the church and father of souls. In I Am the Way, she endeavors above all to allow Bernard's voice to be heard in all its resonance and penetration.

Mother Maureen F. McCabe, OCSO, entered Mount Saint Mary's Abbey in Wrentham, Massachusetts, in 1972, after having taught high school theology and done graduate study in Scripture. She served as novice director in the community for seventeen years and in 2008 was elected abbess. She is the author of Inside the Psalms: Reflections for Novices also from Cistercian Publications.

Reviews

I Am the Way: Stages of Prayer in Saint Bernard is a fresh and user-friendly guide to the teachings of prayer in the writings of St. Bernard of Clairveaux.
Magdalen Mather, OSB, Benedictine Abbey

[T]his small book makes a large contribution to the Monastic Wisdom Series and to monastic and non-monastic readers who wish to avail themselves of that spiritual wisdom for our own day.
