Finding the Body of Saint Clare

St Clare of Assisi.jpgThis day a brilliant star rises, for today Saint Clare, the poor handmaid of the Lord, is glorified in heaven.

Lord, we recall the memory of Saint Clare the virgin. Through her merits, and following her example, may we be strengthened in our hope and charity as we await the glorious resurrection and the enjoyment of eternal communion with you.

Let me take the opportunity to promote the Capuchin Poor Clare vocation...something good happening here.

Saint Francis Mary of Camporosso

God our Father, you made your lowly servant Saint Francis Mary illustrious through every work of charity. Grant us through his prayers and example always to continue in sincere and humble service of our brothers [and sisters].

Some calendars have Saint Francis Mary's liturgical memorial on September 19 and others on the 20th.

Appeals for money on this blog are rare but I believe in giving to needy philanthropic projects. Plus, this request comes via my friend Henry who is connected with the priest in question (and seen to the right).

On my own recommendation I urge you to give because I believe the work and witness of the Franciscans. AND that I am in school with many Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, I am asking for consideration of Father Herald Brock's mission work. Father Herald is a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal. Therefore, I want to encourage you to consider making a donation.  Details about the situation are on Father Herald's blog.

Donations in the form of checks or money orders made out to "CFR Sudan Mission," can be sent to the following address:


CFR Sudan Mission
PO Box 1086
Secaucus, NJ 07096-1086


Please note in the memo box if you would like the funds to be used for hunger relief.

Peace in Christ
