Today is her feast day, and she is my confirmation saint. I love her.

For a really beautiful post about here, please see Amy Welborn’s blog:

Amy Welborn – St. Clare

As noted in her post, Pope Benedict as this to say:

The story of Clare, with that of Francis, is an invitation to reflect on the meaning of life and to seek the secret of true joy in God. It is a concrete proof that those who do the Lord’s will and trust in him alone lose nothing; on the contrary they find the true treasure that can give meaning to all things.

    I love St. Clare too. I live near a monastery of the Poor Clare sisters who live a life of prayer, penance and total joy. I send them notes from time to time – inspirations which are for their good. You could be a sister, too. Peace and all good to you 🙂
