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!

Jumping on the "YouTube" Bandwagon

Brother Sun Sister Moon

So it was only a matter of time before I finally jumped on the YouTube bandwagon...but since it's free, I'm sure Holy Mother Clare wouldn't disapprove. I think Holy Mother Clare would be especially excited that one of her daughters from the Barhamsville Poor Clare monastery makes a brief appearance at the end of this lovely Franciscan themed video. If you notice the picture of the nun reading a book in a garden, that's one of my "sisters" from Bethlehem Poor Clare Monastery!
