St. Clare of Assisi

Br. Arturo Olivas, OFS

Artist's Narrative:
“O wondrous blessed clarity of Clare! In life she shone to a few;
after death she shines on the whole world!
On earth she was a clear light, now in heaven she is a brilliant sun.
O how great the vehemence of the brilliance of this clarity!
On earth this light was indeed kept within cloistered walls,
yet shone abroad it’s shining rays;
It was confined within a convent cell,
yet spread itself through the whole world.”

Her feast day is August 11.
