Saint Claire of Assisi

Saint Clare of Assisi saving a child from a wolf

Saint Clare of Assisi saving a child from a wolf by Giovanni di Paolo (c. 1403–1482)

O God of mercy, who hast inspired blessed Saint Clare with the love of poverty: Grant us so to follow Christ in poverty of spirit, that we may come to the joyful vision of thy glory in the kingdom of heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God, whose blessed Son became poor that we through his poverty might be rich: Deliver us, we pray thee, from an inordinate love of this world, that, inspired by the devotion of thy servant Clare, we may serve thee with singleness of heart, and attain to the riches of the age to come; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and ever. Amen.
