Quote/s of the Day – 12 August – St Clare of Assisi (1194-1253) Virgin
“O wondrous blessed clarity of Clare!
In life she shone to a few;
after death, she shines on the whole world!
On earth she was a clear light.
Now in Heaven, she is a brilliant sun.
O how great the vehemence of the
brilliance of this clarity!
On earth this light was indeed kept
within cloistered walls,
yet shed abroad its shining rays.
It was confined within a convent cell,
yet spread itself through the wide world.”
