SAINT CLARE, Virgin – Memoria: August 11

11 Aug

Saint 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 orders of nuns (Poor Clares / Second Order of Saint Francis). She led a very austere life, abounding in work of piety and charity. She died in the year 1253.

Prayer: Lord God, 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 pray this in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
