St Clare of Assisi. The incorrupt body of Saint Clare of Assisi. In 1234, the army of Frederick II took assault upon Assisi, scaled the walls of San Damiano by night spreading terror. Clare calmly rose from her sick bed, took the ciborium from the little chapel & proceeded to face the invaders at an open window against which they had already placed a ladder.

The 41 years of St. Clare's religious life are a scenario of sanctity: an indomitable resolve to lead the simple, literal gospel life as Francis taught her; courageous resistance to the ever-present pressure to dilute the ideal; a passion for poverty and humility; an ardent life of prayer; and a generous concern for her sisters.
