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!

Chiara Has Returned!

Dear friends of "Canticle of Chiara,"
I realize that I haven't posted in over a month! Thank you for your patience....I've had alot going on in my personal life over the past month, which has prevented me from posting.

However, I've come back just in time to get ready for the blog's biggest day of the year: The Feast of Holy Mother Clare!

Look for more "Chiara Countdown" posts in the near future!

Pax et Bonum,

Chiara :-)
