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!

Dear Friends of "Canticle of Chiara"

Since you haven't heard from me in a while, many of you might be wondering whether I made like St. Clare and became cloistered! In fact, the real reason for my lack of posting has been that I'm in the process of moving to a new city and haven't had internet access for the past couple of weeks (which also explains why the title bar and side bar pictures were down).

I'm still getting settled in, but should be able to make a post soon! In the meantime, please check out the latest additions to my sidebar; I've added some new blogs to the "Chiara's Friend's" section, added more of my favorite books and movies, and updated the Religious Orders section.

Thank you so much for your love and prayers, and I look forward to posting again soon!

Pax et Bonum,

Chiara :-)

Bless you, Chiara, in your new digs.
