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

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?

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.

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.
