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!

Happy St. Elizabeth of Hungary Day!

Happy Feast of St. Elizabeth of Hungary!

To read many posts on this great Saint, please refer to my blog's November, 2006 archives.

I apologize for being kind of M.I.A. for the past month or so...my company has been going through busy season. Things should be winding down after the next week, so I should be able to make more posts just in time for Advent!

Thank you so much for your patience. Chiara will return!
