Saint Clare of Assisi
Feast Day -- August 11
Saint Clare was one of the first people to follow the teaching of Saint Francis of Assisi. She lived with a group of women who were very poor and prayed all the time. Saint Clare believed that Jesus was really and truly present in the Eucharist. Two times, when enemies wanted to attach the town of Assisi, the people asked Clare for help. She came to the walls of the city, holding the Blessed Sacrament in her hands. Both times the enemy ran away in fear.
Patron of television, telephones and sore eyes. Saint Clare cut off her hair when she first joined Saint Francis.
Saint Clare, help all who work in television to broadcast the truth. Amen.
