August 11: Feast of St. Clare of Assisi

“Love God, serve God, everything is in that.” ~St Clare
God of mercy, you inspired Saint Clare with the love of poverty. By the help of her prayers may we follow Christ in poverty of spirit and come to the joyful vision of your glory in the kingdom of heaven. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen
St. Clare, pray for us.
