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!

St. Clare T-Shirts Now Available!

****Drum roll****...........In honor of St. Clare's feast a week from now, I've designed a t-shirt with her image on it! The t-shirts are available at the following link:


I've bought a number of other t-shirts from CafePress.com, and they're surprisingly very high quality. My particular St. Clare design features a "Santa Clara" logo on the front pocket, and a large icon of the Seraphic Mother on the back with the caption "Shining in Name, More Shining in Life!" The design is available in all shapes and sizes for both men and women. There's even a baseball shirt in case you want to showcase your athletic prowess on the field!

If you have any questions about the shirt, feel free to e-mail me at chiara1194@yahoo.com. Enjoy!
