August 17 – Saint Clare of the Cross

Saint Clare of the Cross

Blessed Savior, although most of us prefer not to think about how painfully You suffered for us, Saint Clare continually reflected upon Your Passion.  So devoted was she to this that when she died, a cross was discovered emblazoned in the skin above her heart.  I ask her to pray for my understanding of Your suffering.  Help me to not be afraid to look at the evidence of Your love that made You willing to die for me in such great torment.  Teach me to resist sin so that I do not cause others to suffer and hurt You more, and when people sin against me, help me to forgive them as You continually forgive me.  Saint Clare, pray for me.  Amen.

Quotes by Saint Clare of the Cross

Who teaches the soul but God? There is no better instruction for the world than what comes from God.

If God didn’t protect me, I would be the worst woman in the world.
