The Poor Clares of Cincinnati in their chapel.

The Feast of St. Clare is August 11. Clare of Assisi was a remarkable woman, deeply devote to God, and the founder of the Second Order of St. Francis, the Poor Clares. Below is one of the prayers she wrote.

The Blessing of St.Clare

May Almighty God bless you
May God look upon you with eyes of mercy
And give you peace
On earth may God pour forth
Graces on you abundantly
And in heaven… in heaven
May God place you among the saints.

The Poor Clare Nuns of the Franciscan Monastery of Cincinnati sing, The Blessing of St. Clare, in the video below.
