Besides...members of Bernard's religious order are perfectly happy to accept what textual evidence they have that he is the author of that particular prayer...so that's good'nuff fer me.  I don't need 20 lay historians to back that up fer me...

While I have been looking for amorphous sources to indicate that the door is not closed on St. Bernard as author of Vitis Mystica, I ran across a good article on the Sacred Heart devotion:

http://www.unitypublishing.com/Apparitions/DoorTwoHeartsAreOne.html

But the Vitis Mystica and Memorare are not the same situation as the Rythmical Prayer so there's still more to discover...for those who are open...to discovery that is... laugh

For the Mockers, Rockers and Dockers, here is a reference to the fact that the jury is still out on whether or not St. Bernard or St. Bonaventure is really the author of Vitis Mystica:

If I may jump in rather late,

Aren't we rather missing the point in trying to determine a date for this 'devotion'? Who cares if it was pre- or post-schism? Arius' teachings were all pre-schism, it doesn't make them instantly Orthodox.

The Roman Catholics' schism was not one sudden action that severed their ties with Holy Orthodoxy, it was a series of things culminating in the schism. We should not look at whether or not something existed pre- or post-schism, but whether it is Orthodox or not. It should go without saying that it is only Orthodox themselves who are qualified to make that judgement, and so it is curious that Roman Catholics are so prevalent on a board about Orthodoxy to defend their own actions. This thread on the sacred heart has nothing to do with you, if you want to go to First Friday Masses go do it and let us to determine amongst ourselves what belongs in the future of The Church. For a group who supposedly doesn't care what we do there is certainly a lot of (often vicious, and directed at Clergy no less) rhetoric devoted to it by your side on this thread.

Western Orthodoxy, IMO, should not be about setting the clock back and trying to act as though we're beginning a step in 1053 and ending it in 2011. It must acknowledge the gap and not accept something just because it is Western or pre-schism, but truly filter everything through the lens of Truth. The best of (and I believe in the majority from what I've seen) WRO do just this. Our brothers and sisters in the west began veering away from Orthodoxy long before the schism. Our Western brothers and sisters now should take care, and not fear to reform (while obviously still staying true to their Western patrimony) their current liturgies and practices so as to ensure the security of the Holy Orthodox faith, which is truly the responsibility of all Orthodox Christians.

Now I have been referenced as amorphous and a jackass today and you know I welcome this kind of critique because it reflects more on the giver than on the receiver, and for that I am grateful to God's goodness and mercy.

So the FACT is that one cannot say with any certitude whether or not Vitis Mystica was written by St. Bonaventure or St. Bernard, which is all that I indicated.  It can be said that the Memorare predated St. Bernard.  It cannot be said, for the moment with any references, that the Rhythmical Prayer was written by St. Bernard or not though there is little evidence against it.

But as Deacon Lance noted, it really makes little difference in terms of the dating of the devotion to the Sacred Heart whether or not it "began" it St. Bernard or St. Bonaventure.  Define "begin"...These two saints would have/could have picked up the devotion from other places and other times.  I posted a link to an article that indicated the ancient character of the devotion, in any event.

So thank you for your insults and your slings and arrows, you Peter and Schultz.  It keeps me alive and alert and happy to serve your spiritual needs.

Blessings,

Mary

Now there is a damning presumption that does not hold.

I happen to be personally fond of both men, Schultz and PtA.  They are younger than I am and have much to learn about things I have already learned, as I have things to learn about things I have not yet learned.

My prayer is that they find in their hearts to have and to demonstrate the same respect for me that I have for them and that they learn much in life in terms of true illumination and joy in the Son of the Living God.

So, you may call me a liar, but you cannot change the prayer.

Blessings,

Mary

You are a real piece of work!

Oh Lord, I thank thee that thou hast given me a deeper level of respect than the others. That only they might live as I live!

I'll be sure to pray for your shark-like qualities, as I am far older and more experienced in these things than you. You'll understand one day, when the wind of the Spirit carries you to my heights! Your youthful temper will cool, and the tranquil waters of humility will fix you upon such a perfect cross, to have to patiently endure such spurrings from the novices.

Can you explain what you mean by "too well developed?"

Are you aware that the Memorare is OLDER than St. Bernard. 

Is the Memorare too well developed as well?

I mean that prayer is full blown Sacred Heart not the beginnings of that devotion in the Wounded Heart one might expect.  As for the Memorare it is not older than St. Bernard.  It was culled from a longer prayer from the 15th century.

http://www.preces-latinae.org/thesaurus/BVM/Memorare.html

I would also note that in HAURIETIS AQUAS in the list of saints given credit for starting this devotion St. Bonaventure is listed first, St. Bernard is not even listed.

"94. But for those who wish to touch on the more significant stages of this devotion through the centuries, if we consider outward practice, there immediately occur the names of certain individuals who have won particular renown in this matter as being the advance guard of a form of piety which, privately and very gradually, has gained more and more strength in religious congregations. To cite some examples in establishing this devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and continuously promoting it, great service was rendered by St. Bonaventure, St. Albert the Great, St. Gertrude, St. Catherine of Siena, Blessed Henry Suso, St. Peter Canisius, St. Francis de Sales. St. John Eudes was responsible for the first liturgical office celebrated in honor of the Sacred Heart of Jesus whose solemn feast, with the approval of many Bishops in France, was observed for the first time on October 20th, 1672.

95. But surely the most distinguished place among those who have fostered this most excellent type of devotion is held by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque who, under the spiritual direction of Blessed Claude de la Colombiere who assisted her work, was on fire with an unusual zeal to see to it that the real meaning of the devotion which had had such extensive developments to the great edification of the faithful should be established and be distinguished from other forms of Christian piety by the special qualities of love and reparation.(98)"

You're right.  I skimmed the same article and at one point I read "Saint" Bernard where I should have read "Father Bernard"...

Nevertheless there is NO consensus on whether or not St. Bernard or St. Bonaventure authored the treatise or prayer in question...There simply is not conclusive evidence save for a presumption in the face of textual evidence.

Are you suggesting here that St. Bonaventure sets the initiating precedent for devotion to the Sacred Heart in the long history of the Church?...If you are that does not comport with other parts of the encyclical.

It's true, and you can read a bit about it in this marvelous essay: http://en.hilarion.orthodoxia.org/6_4

Money quote: "Some Orthodox Fathers are known for the direct influence Catholic spirituality exercised upon them. St Dimitri of Rostov was under this influence for his entire life: his homilies as well as other works, including the Reading Compendium of Saint’s lives, based primarily on Latin sources, have a distinctly “Westernizing” character; St Dimitri’s library held books by Bonaventure, Thomas a Kempis, Peter Canisius and other Catholic authors, and in his spirituality such elements as the devotion of the passions of Christ, the five wounds of Christ and the heart of Christ may be traced."
