O beloved St. Clare, you followed in the footsteps of the Virgin Mary and became a mother in the Mystical Body of Christ. Give us your love for the Church and for all our brothers and sisters. You, who in your last words blessed the Lord for having created you, obtain for us the grace to comprehend what a precious gift life is. Intercede for our families that they may live in peaceful accord, serene and zealous in their labors and in the joy of being together. Bring us one day into your presence so that with you, we may praise and sing eternally the mercies of the Lord. Amen.
