     Close to Fr. Bernad's heart are topics related to the Ateneo that he
    knew, the Humanities and the Ateneo, Rizal and his works, Shakespeare's
       plays, Philippine history and literature, classical literature.

           Fr. Bernad obtained his MA and PhD from Yale University.
             He was Editor of Philippine Studies in the mid 50s
               and for a long period of time up to the mid-70s,
     he was Professor of literature at the Ateneo de Manila University,
  teaching Greek and Latin Classics, Shakespearean Drama, and Philippine
                          literature, to name a few.
                      He has authored close to 30 books:
           essays in literature and culture, literary criticism,
  insightful and reflective personal essays, biographies, historical accounts,
                   homilies, lectures, the Jesuits, etc.

  In 2004, Fr. Bernad gave a public lecture at Ateneo de Manila on the topic
                         "Dante's Cosmic Journey."
  Most impressively, he delivered an hour long of extemporaneous elegant prose,
       punctuated with recitation from memory of Dante's Divine Comedy!

        It is a rare privilege to have Father Bernad here again with us.
     Being with him in a conversation is allowing ourselves to gain wisdom.
                     Come and join us in this experience!

  That perches in the soul,
  And sings the tune without the words,
  And never stops at all."
