SAINT CLARE OF ASSISI, Virgin – Memoria: 11 August

11 Aug

Clare was born at Assisi in the year 1193. She followed her fellow countryman Saint Francis in his life of poverty and was the founder and ruler of an order of nuns (Poor Clares). She led a very austere life, abounding in works of piety and charity. She died in the year 1253.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, in Your mercy You led Saint Clare to the love of poverty. Help us, by her intercession, to follow Christ in poverty of spirit, so that, in the kingdom of heaven, we may see You in Your glory. We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
