Clare of Assisi, friend and follower of St. Francis of Assisi. Founder and abbess of the Poor Clares under St. Francis' guidance.
She and her fellow nuns led a very austere life, true to the simple

and holiness she was declared saint within two years of her death.
Her deathbed words after 41 years of religious life at San Damiano are said to have been:
forth in peace, for you have followed the good road. Go forth without
fear, for he who created you has made you holy, has always protected
you, and loves you as a mother. Blessed be you, my God, for having
Artwork by the Benedictine Sisters of Turvey Abbey.
