Aug. 11, Feast of St Clare...the first Saint (of old) ...

that I ever prayed to, some 3.5 years ago. Hers is the first statue of a Saint I ever bought, and she stands proudly in my prayer room bookcase. I took Clare for my confirmation name. I love her love for the Eucharist, for St Francis and for her Poor Clares. God bless them all, for they "hold up the world" by their many sacrifices and countless ascending prayers through the ages. All religious are a gift, but there is to me, something very special about the Poor Clares. Without one of them, we'd have no EWTN! :)
