Clare of Assisi

Biography of St Clare of Assisi

St Clare

Here is a blessing from St. Clare's second letter to Blessed Agnes of Prague:

What you hold may you always hold.
What you do, may you always do and never abandon.
But with swift pace, light step and unswerving feet,
so that even your steps stir up no dust,
Go forward, the spirit of our God has called you.
