Feast Day August 11
Patron Saint of Television
"Gaze upon Him, consider Him, contemplate Him, as you desire to imitate Him." (Saint Clare when speaking of Eucharistic Adoration)
From her earliest years Clare was devoted to prayer. At eighteen years of age when Saint Francis came to preach in Assisi at the church of San Giorgio, Clare was inspired by the words of this “poverello” (little poor man). She begged him to help her live a life “after the manner of the holy Gospel”.
