    1. La familia que alcanz a Cristo sta es la historia de la familia de San Bernardo de Clairvaux, el hombre m s influyente de su tiempo a mi parecer El libro cuenta c mo cada uno de los miembros de la familia alcanz la Santidad, y c mo cada uno de ellos influy en el otro para lograr ese tan preciado anhelo de encuentro cara a cara con Dios la vida eterna Lo que m s me gusta de este libro es que exhorta a todos a ser santos, rompe el paradigma de que s lo los consagrados pueden serlo El ejemplo del V [...]


    2. This was a great book Not just Bernard, but the whole family is very holy It s amazing how Bernard could convince all those noble s and nights to come and join a small order in the middle of nowhere I don t even know where to start I just loved this book and think everyone should read it.


    3. One time through isn t enough to take in all this book has to offer So much great stuff to ponder I ll be starting it over again soon.


    4. The initial chapter of this book lays out a story in which a nun criticizes many of the books about saints for making them to be than human The author then explains that he hopes to avoid this common mistake I personally believe that he did an excellent job and that this book shares both the human traits as well as the graces from God in the lives of Bernard of Clairvaux and his parents, brothers, and sister.I enjoyed the storytelling method of portraying the characters in this family The short [...]


    5. This is the story of the family of Saint Bernard of Clairvaux France where all the members both parents as well as all seven siblings became saints The book is written in a style that s both friendly and intense, conveying the feeling that while aspiring and working to become a saint is no easy ride, God does not make it difficult, nor does he place a lot of obstacles You can feel that it is an interplay or interactive, as we say it in the modern language between you and God, wherein the He see [...]


    6. I read on Kindle a great book by the late Cistercian, Fr M Raymond OCSO, The Family that Overtook Christ It s the story of St Bernard of Clairvaux and his amazing family Very inspiring Fr Raymond really knows how to dramatise a story and hold your interest, all the while teaching and motivating I think I ll read it again before long many great teachings and sayings of Bernard A couple of notes You ask me with what measure God is to be loved, and I answer Without measurene modowhat a great motto [...]


    7. Fantastic book, I forced myself to read it in small chunks so I could enjoy it and get out of it I love how the author used a variety of writing techniques to tell the story too dialogue between family members, between observers, third person narrative all used very effectively I also enjoyed how the author told the story of the whole family, person by person, but without becoming repetitive An amazing story about an amazing family, and written so well what a great combination


    8. Wowspirational and informative The narrative was exquisite and appropriate for todays church Highly recommended for those who stuggle today with the church s modernistic stance on many issues.
