St. Clare


                                                                                        St. CLARE


O beloved St. Clare, for your love of the Infant Jesus, obtain for us the protection of our families; for your love of Jesus Crucified, obtain for us strength and courage in the hour of trial: for your love of the Church and your sisters, obtain for us faith, hope and charity; for your love of Jesus in contemplation on the mountain, obtain for us a profound desire to seek out the company of Our Lord.

For your love of Jesus, Poor and Humble of Heart, obtain for us freedom from every attachment to sin and vice; for your holy death, obtain also for us the motherly care of the Blessed Virgin Mary all the days of our life and in the hour of our death. Amen.

[St. Clare of Assisi was born in 1193. Collaborating with St. Francis, she founded the contemplative Order of Poor Clares of the Church of St. Damian. She died in 1253.]
