The Oil Dedicated to St Aelred of Rievaulx (Patron for Bladder Stone Sufferers) from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Saint Aelred of Rievaulx was a 12th-century English Cistercian monk and abbot who lived from 1110 to 1167.
His most famous work is “Spiritual Friendship,” which explores the nature of friendship and its role in the spiritual life. In it, he argues that friendship can be a means of attaining a closer relationship with God. That true friendship is based on mutual love and selflessness.
Rievaulx became one of the most influential and prosperous monasteries in England.
