Details

From the CTS Great Saints Seriew. Life of the friend of St Francis of Assisi and founder of the Poor Clares. In renouncing the world of her time and embracing poverty, Clare risked everything to be a disciple of Christ. She was not only inspired by her contemporary, St Francis, but in turn gave him counsel and at one stage even nursed him. So great was her impact on Christendom, that by her death in 1253 over 150 convents of the Poor Clare Order of nuns had been established. Her inspiring life, writings and legacy – and their modern-day relevance – are considered here.
