St. Clare of Assisi

Feast day August 11


An army of Saracens, who were enemies of the Church, came to Assisi one day. They planned to destroy the city and enter St. Damian convent, where St. Clare and her Sisters lived! St. Clare took Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, Who was exposed in a beautiful gold Monstrance, and carried Him outside of the convent to the city walls. When the invaders saw St. Clare raising up Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, they fled in fear.



Jesus in the Sacred Host was St. Clare's strength throughout her life, in sickness and suffering.
