Saint Clare and Saint Francis of Assisi are two of our favorite Saintly friend pairs. The light of Francis’s soul drew Clare to want to live a life like him. He inspired her to begin a community for women. For the Poor Clares, she emphasized devotion, kindness, tenderness and practicality - four tenets that we hope to emulate.
I love the video series called The Little St. Francis to teach little ones about the Franciscan Way.
One of our favorite communities to be a part of is theCenter for Action and Contemplation, which was started by the Franciscan Priest, Fr. Richard Rohr. I particularly love to receive the daily meditations in my email. His writings have helped me expand my understanding of a God who loves me deeply.This is a really beautiful reflection on Saint Clare and Saint Francis.
