Feast of St Bernard of Clairvaux

She will come to meet him like a mother,
and receive him like a virgin bride.
She will give him the bread of understanding to eat, and the water of wisdom to drink.
He will lean on her and will not fall,
he will rely on her and not be put to shame.
She will raise him high above his neighbours,
and in full assembly she will open his mouth.
He will find happiness and a crown of joy,
he will inherit an everlasting name.
Ecclesiasticus 15 : 2-6
