“We become what we love and who we love shapes what we become.”—St. Clare of Assisi 

Clare was a very strong woman, both in her life and devotion. Each of us is strong in our own ways. Make a list of what you think are your strongest traits. St. Clare held on to life until she knew her rule for the sisters had been approved by Rome. What would you like your legacy to be?

  1. Lord Jesus, you satisfy the deepest longing of our hearts and you feed us with the finest of wheat (Psalm 81:16). Fill us with gratitude and give us a generous heart that we may freely share with others what you have given to us. Amen.
