"May almighty God bless you. May God look upon you with mercy and give you peace..."-Blessing of St. Clare

A message from our Abbess…

Dear Friends,

Always strive to live in simplicity, mutual love and peace. St. Clare What would Saint Clare have to say about the events in our world these past weeks? She knew violence in her own family, in her city and in the medieval world in which she lived. When the Saracens attacked her monastery, she met them with the Eucharist and they retreated peacefully. May each of us live in love and peace. Sometimes it may seem that our little efforts don't make a difference. Recently I was encouraged when I read a quote by the Dalai Lama: "If you think you are too small to make an impact, try sleeping with a mosquito."

On the Feast of St. Clare, we invite you to celebrate the Transitus with us at Evening Prayer on August 10th; we will begin with Adoration at 4:00pm. On August 11, Fr. Jeff Kirby, the Diocesan Vicar for Vocations will be our celebrant for our Eucharistic Liturgy at 9:00 am. We will have light refreshments.

Thank you for your support which continues to help us shine Clare's light in our world. May we be mosquitoes of love and peace!

With love and prayer,
Sr. Mary Connor, osc
And all your grateful Poor Clare Sisters
