A Catholic's Believe It or Not - St. Bernard

From the book: A Catholic's Believe it or Not! by Raymond James Paul, Dell Publishing Co, Inc.

St. Bernard, who established 163 monasteries, is one of the greatest "recruiters" in the history of the Catholic Church. On entering the Cistercian Order, his friends tried to talk him out of it. So convincingly did St. Bernard answer them that all thirty-one decided to enter the Order with him.
