St. Clare

Today we remember Saint Clare of Assisi. She was born at Assisi, Italy in 1193 and came under the influence of Saint Francis. She left home at the age of 18 and, under Francis’s guidance, began a community that grew to become the order of the Poor Clares (she was later joined both by her sister and by her widowed mother). Clare was a noted contemplative and a caring mother to her nuns. She died at Assisi in 1253. St. Clare, Pray for us!
