August 11 – Saint Clare of Assisi

Saint Clare

listenHoly Spirit, Saint Clare of Assisi lived a very mystical and spiritually powerful life.  In her dying days, when she was unable to attend Mass, You brought the Mass to her by displaying it like a movie on her wall.  Thus she is now the patron saint of television.  I ask her to intercede for all people involved in this industry.  Teach them to use this medium for the improvement of society by promoting good values, respect for life, and reverence for Judeo-Christian religions and their members.  O Lord, let my conscience convict me of watching TV shows that promote anything that is not of You.  Saint Clare, pray for us.  Amen.

Saint Clare of Assisi (1194-1253)

quoteWe become what we love and who we love shapes what we become. If we love things, we become a thing. If we love nothing, we become nothing.”

quoteLove with your whole heart God and Jesus, his son, crucified for our sins, and never let his memory escape your mind. Make yourself meditate continually on the mysteries of the Cross and the anguish of the Mother standing beneath the cross.”

quoteMelancholy is the poison of devotion. When one is in tribulation, it is necessary to be more happy and more joyful because one is nearer to God.”
