A joyfully Franciscan view of Catholic life, inspired by St. Clare (Santa Chiara) of Assisi!

Chiara Offreduccio (St. Clare) was born in 1194. It is said that when her mother had Chiara in her womb, an angel appeared to her and said, "your child will be a light that will illuminate the world!" Hence, her mother named the child Chiara, which means "light. As G.K. Chesterton put it, St. Clare was a romantic figure just like Juliet was. However, instead of running away from her family in order to be with an earthly man, Clare gave up everything and ran away from her family for the love of her Savior!

Saint Clare Comic Strip in Spanish!

"The Adventures of Sister Clare" in Spanish! Posted by Picasa

So continuing with my obsession with "Santa Chiara," I was procrastinating yet again when I had to dust off my High School Spanish skills and found this AWESOME "SANTA CLARA" website, complete with really POD paintings of her, and a kids' comic strip!

You better check it out, or else I'll send the Saracens after you!
