Wordless Wednesday: saint edition

It's the feast of St. Clare today!

As you all know, she's the great friend of St. Francis of Assisi, and founder of the sister order to his Franciscans: the Poor Clares.   It's wordless wednesday, so I'll not write much more (shock, I know)...except this quote and then prayer that sums it up from St. Clare:

"Love God, serve God, everything is in that."

"Let us pray to God together for each other,
for, by sharing each other's burden of charity in this way,
we shall easily fulfill the law of Christ."

a lovely photo..and a lovely icon.
Clare was my mother's middle name, so I feel a connection.

I will always remember seeing St. Clare's incorruptible body in Assisi. Pretty amazing.
