MEMORIA OF SAINT CLARE OF ASSISI, VIRGIN – 11 AUGUST

Clare was born in the year 1193. She followed her fellow countryman Saint Francis of Assisi in his life of poverty and was the founder and ruler of the Second Order of St. Francis (an order of contemplative nuns called the Poor Clares). She led a vey 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 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.
