The name of Jesus is not only light, but also food. It is also oil, without which all food of the soul is dry. It is salt, without whose seasoning whatever is set before us is insipid. Finally, it is honey in the mouth, melody in the ear, rejoicing in the heart and, at the same time, medicine. Every discourse in which His name is not spoken is without savor. – Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153), from “Sermons on the Song of Songs” 15.6.
