As the younger sister of St. Clare of Assisi, Agnes had a tough act to follow! But this holy and humble woman faced the very same challenges and created her own unique identity as a child of God. How can we emulate that kind of spiritual boldness?
St. Agnes may not
have started an order
or written a Rule,
but she showed a resilience and faith
that was second to no one.
Let us all follow the example of this courageous woman—
little sister and radical saint—who followed Clare’s example
but forged a path to holiness all her own.
Are you the middle or youngest child in your family? Let this prayer be a reminder that your faith journey need not mirror that of your siblings. God loves you for you.
