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!

A Prayer for Fr. Basil Moreau

Today the Venerable Basil Moreau will finally become Blessed Basil Moreau! Congratulations to all of the wonderful Holy Cross Fathers!

Below is a prayer for Basil Moreau's intercession:

Lord Jesus, Source of all that is good, you inspired Basil Moreau to found the religious family of Holy Cross to continue your mission among the People of God.

May he be for us a model of the apostolic life, an example of fidelity and an inspiration as we strive to be followers of Jesus.

May the Church be moved to proclaim his saintliness for the good of all people. Lord Jesus, you said "Ask and you shall receive."

I dare to come to you to ask that you hear my prayer. It is through the intercession of Father Basil Moreau that I ask...May I learn to imitate his holiness and service and look to him confidently in times of need.
